I like KJ Anderson's stuff and I like Scott Brick as a reader but this was simply 50's juvenile pulp Science Fiction and not that good at that. Awful dialog, silly premise. Tendillls and tendrillLESS? Give me break. In some ways it reminded me of Doc Smith's old Lensman series but less well thought out. No real sense of drama. No inspiration. No real characterization. Johnny Cross is sort of a Tom Swift kind of character.
I'd say save your credits and get something by Anderson and/or Brick that you'd enjoy like the Dune series or the Seven Suns Saga.

I liked the book as much as the original except for the ending. It was too creepy having the memories of a grown man downloaded into a baby. I think also seemed like too abrupt a conclusion when less significant things got lots of exposition. it was like."Oops times up, gotta wrap this up.". I think regardless of the original author secumbing to Alzheimer's, the ending could have been better plotted.
