What the Critics Say

"Best seller Anderson turns up the heat in his second Saga of the Seven Suns installment, proving he has firepower to burn. He weaves action, romance and science with a rousing plot reflecting the classic SF of Clarke and Herbert and the glossy cinematic influence of Lucas and Spielberg....This saga soars."

Not stellar, just OK

The 1st of the series was disappointing, but I hoped that the 2nd book would gain momentum. Unfortunately it just wandered along at the same unfocused pace. Interesting concepts but the characters are vague, and it just never makes the leap from a fair story to good or great one.

AND for some reason the author chooses to constantly refresh our memories on various storyline points, really annoying.
