All that really need be said about this novel is this: it’s simply gorgeous.
In the Shadow of Death
A shining light of a book, with bright writing, brilliant dialogue, compelling characterization and evocative description. It is what so much science fiction tries to be but fails.
If you enjoy the wheeling and dealing of intergalactic politics, spiced heavily with betrayal and intrigue, you will enjoy this story.
In the Shadow of Death is a great book with marvellous descriptions, characters and plot structure.
The action sweeps the reader into its world and weaves a story that compels one to keep reading until it’s finished.
I really enjoyed this book. I look forward to reading more from this author.
If you persevere, the book becomes a gripping story, which makes you care about what happens to the characters.
