Good news! The Jovian Manifesto, which was released a little more than a week ago, has just got its first review. And it was quite positive. And just so you know, the book is on sale for one more day. So if you still want a copy, get it while it’s still just $0.99, or grab the first and second book for the bundle price of $3.98!
The commenter, let’s just call them CWG, had the following to say:
I can’t wait for the next one!
I don’t think I’ve been so involved in a science fiction series since I read the Honor Harrington books by David Weber. I snapped up a copy of The Jovian Manifesto as soon as possible, having immensely enjoyed The Cronian Incident when it first came out.
What’s so good about it? Everything! But to be a bit more specific:
– believable science. This is a relatively near future series, Man has settlements pretty much all over the Solar System but hasn’t ventured past that yet. Nano technology is imaginative but not crazy. It makes sense.
– believable politics. Corporations and governments vie for power and most are just as corrupt as we have today. A long period of peace threatens to erupt into war, incidents are staged to trigger conflict, each situation pits several agendas against each other… it’s complicated but this too makes sense.
– likable characters. Williams has created multi-faceted characters whose lives are skillfully woven together to create a fantastic tapestry.
– fast-paced plot. It’s hard to put this one down, each chapter pulls you into the next until suddenly you’re all done and wanting more.
