Meet Gyle Meredon, a freelance police investigator whose young daughter is abducted. Meredon must trace his daughter across the Cluster- the human settled worlds - and beyond, to the worlds Outside; rough, unfinished worlds. Whom can he trust? Who knows what happened to his daughter or why? Which world does the mysterious KZ come from and who is selling Immortality?
First off, let's be clear—I am a sci-fi geek and as such, I can be a most demanding reader. Unless a story is particularly well told I find myself being distracted by the feasibility of things, questioning the plot and finding possible fault with the physical structure of alien races etc. I am thus doubly happy to report that Mr Coles was not only able to take me to some particularly alien worlds, portraying events and people in a very believable way, but his plot was flawless and kept me enthralled from beginning to end.
As to the physical presentation of the book, Mr Coles uses good grammar and punctuation throughout adding to a most pleasurable eBook reading experience. However, section breaks and formatting leave a little to be desired and for that, it loses a star. The sequel to this book though, To Rule the Universe, will definitely be going on my 'To Read' list.
