by Tony Daniel Intriguing and unique!:
It's a pity that this was only a short story. Mr. Daniel has a unique writing style, and this story is far from 'conventional' sci-fi. It is an easy read, but holds your attention. It hints at a future battle that is both epic in scope, and ethereal in nature. Yet, Mr. Daniel renders this story around a topic far more common, but no less important: love and hope. Bravo!

by Tony Daniel Superb!:
This book is the first of a trilogy: However, only the 1st and 2nd books were ever written - the 3rd was not funded by the publisher.
Yet, this book is classic for Tony Daniel - it exemplifies his unique writing style for sci-fi. He conceives of a future that is very different from what has been written about before. And yet, certain themes remain the same: the battle for love, family, power, and domination.
Read this, and encourage Mr. Daniel to write the 3rd installment!
