the sigma vortex Reviews
Amazon, B&N have changed the face of publishing forever and 3 reasons why consumers love it ...1. you can buy books when you want 2. writing has been democratized and 3. damn, the books are cheap! Even better there is an endless stream of fantastic fiction churned by the day!I picked up 3 books - Erinyes, the Sigma Vortex and Moonwreck and I've enjoyed each one of them. The sigma vortex story starts with the theme of space travel beyond the known universe ....how many times have we read that before. But the story takes an unexpected twist towards the middle and had my attention until the end. Thumbs up.
Unfortunately I found myself getting very bored through this story. There were some minor spelling errors and given this story is so short, they were fairly obvious. At least to me. I most likely won't be looking into anything else in this series, if there even is a series, which there appeared to be. I'm all about sci-fi and space travel but there just weren't enough of those elements for me to feel like I could get absorbed into the story. Maybe if it were longer and allowed more time for introduction to the alien race and their history I would've enjoyed it more. As it were, there didn't seem to be much to this story for it to stand out amongst other sci-fi lit.
I like the characterization of the Larthians, here is an example " ...they are telepathic species and can communicate an entire story about the time it takes us to mutter a single word".or this one,"...the spaceship selected for the mission was the Et’Mezneth named after a mythological Larthian Goddess who descended from the heavens giving birth to the first daughters and sons of Larthia. According to the legend, she brought in the best of virtues from across the universe and seeded it into her children.”Kudos!PS. I'm a collector of book covers and I love the design.
When I read about "supersonic" speed in space I started smelling a rat...
good debut work by the author, characters well defined and the story gathers in momentum.
