“This series didn't really grab me the way I hoped it would. The high-tech tech is fun and the ideas behind the plot are pretty exciting, but the characters all seem to be nearly-identical copies of the same "bad-ass" personality in different bodies. Everyone hides everything they know from everyone else - even when it might save the human race to reveal something - until information can be pulled out of them at the most dramatic possible time (i.e. at the last second). Every chapter ends with a dramatic cliffhanger statement. Every new introduced group of people is supposed to be more impressive and horrific and tougher than the last. In the end it was hard to keep track of who anyone was or what their specialties were or, really, why I cared.
Wow, that sounds horrible. I didn't hate it, just was disappointed.”
