great finish to the story but...
Reviewed in the United States on May 18, 2012
i didn't really care about the flashbacks. cole's was semi-interesting, walter's i skipped through, and anlyn's i barely skimmed through. the best backstory was the freakin wadi's! but it was in the prolouge so it didn't feel intrusive like i felt the rest of the flashbacks were.
the actual story was very good though and i thought it tied it up nicely so if there are no more molly fyde books in howey's future i'll be sad but at least i feel satisfied. love molly, cole, the wadi, and cat; great characters! howey can really make you feel for these people. i loved the hyperspace part of the story. i could lose penelope, anlyn, edison, and anything palan related.
if you haven't read wool yet, read wool!! its what turned me on to howey in the first place even though the stories are different in every way a story can be whats the same is his wonderfully descriptive worlds he creates and characters (even bad peeps) that you emote with.
if my vote counts at all i want more molly fyde! and not like another five hundred years down the road molly fyde's decendants; i mean the characters that survived this book doing what howey hinted at them doing at the end of the story.
