Just an avid reader. Mostly SF/Fantasy, some hobbies, paranormal, urban fantasy and lighter, fluffier things.
Some mixed feelings about this one. Well-written. There are moments it's good SF -- where you get glimpses of future and extraplanetory pieces that do contribute well to the atmosphere. The story isn't that interesting (other than the premise) at past the halfway mark. I think it's because the plot has basically gone into teenagers and cliches in an academy for the special territory. And I have yet to like any of the characters.
