A great trilogy ! A bit of military, a bit of sci-fi and a lot of plot twists with some great characters (you will love to hate) !

I'm thinking Kevin Anderson might be Poul Anderson's son. The offspring of successful writers are as prone to get together and ride the gravy train as the offspring of politicians, or movie acters. Anyway, I gradually made my way through this morass of what's loosely been described as a plot. Actually finished it last night. I didn't hate it and will read the next one in the series or until it all wears me down to check it back in and read a biography of one of the Kennedy family if any are still alive, or some Bush that hasn't been president yet. Something potentially more interesting than the Herbert/Anderson pot boiler series.

Begiining of a series by Frank Herbert's son and another author. Introduces some new science ideas (slickwater) along with a way to mark trails for space travel. But main purpose is to set the stage for other books. It thus leaves you hanging and wating to get the next book. Also introduces some characters who turn out to be fairly shallow as the author regrettably is more interested in his plot than the characters, which you'd think he would find space for in such a large book.My interest is piqued, let's hope I'm not let down.

It's a good book, though it takes time to get on it's feet, once it does, it's an exceptionally strong read. The one thing I regret about this book is that I have to wait until next September to read the next novel in the series. Definitely a must if you like sci fi opera with a couple of twists thrown in. Some of the characters were a bit unbelievable though. But, hey who reads science fiction expecting it to be entirely factual?
