Started out ok, a typical SF Epic’y type story.
But as I read on, it became obvious as the sun that this was nothing more than a copy and klug’ing of Anderson’s Saga of the Seven Suns series and Herbert’s Dune prequels.
I am in the middle of the Seven Suns series right now and not enjoying it, as it is drawn out and boring. This had some life [thanks to Herbert] but the blatant rewriting of their same old ideas didn’t do it for me.
If I had read this trilogy before starting the Seven Suns, I might have let the Dune’esque copycatness stuff go and enjoyed this. But once again, Anderson screws me over. Ballz to that.
So I just stopped. Not worth the aggravation AND repetitiveness…
