As I was reading, I thought that the plot was too complex for it to be resolved in just one book. I was right! It's a series. It's well-written, entertaining, thoughtful, and would appeal to anyone who likes a good read, as much as science fiction.
I haven't read much sci-fi, as I have trouble visualizing some of it. I simply can't get there. I like sci-fi movies, but found novels out of my reach. My family (husband and kids) loves Star Trek and the like. My granddaughter was Darth Vader last Hallowe'en!
This book was well-crafted and clear enough for a non-sci-fi fan to grasp. I would strongly recommend it! You can tell he is a well-educated writer, who has lived life, and understands humanity. His vision of the future is one I could not have imagined, but totally understood. I won't reveal much, as you simply should pick it up! I tend not to read the back covers, as I like to let stories unfold.
Book two in the series, LIBRE, A SILVER SHIPS NOVEL, came out August 1st, and book three, MÉRIDIEN, A SILVER SHIPS NOVEL, is due out in 2016. I can't wait!
