The author paints a vivid picture of the setting and characters in your head. He makes both seem real, and he lets you "feel" if the characters and settings are good or evil. He gives them a sort of vibe that you would like in a story. The author puts his adventureous and suspenceful voice into the writing. I found the book very interesting and very effective. It is informative and is a real science fiction novel. It had some parts that could be improved,and it felt like he was trying to force some parts of the book into action scenes. Despite this I would recommend it to others because it is a very interesting and well written book. It also sets the scene for the trilogy, and I would definately read it if I could.
I gave it this rating because of the violence and gore factor. It has gruesome descriptions of fights with blood and death.
