The sequel to Masi'shen stranded, which I recently reviewed. Read that one first, or you may be lost in this one.

For plot, another an A+ (9). The author deals with a number of issues, mainly in the geopolitical arena. I reserve the right to score this higher later, but the darned story ended in a cliffhanger!

For technical score, an outstanding 10. Were there errors? Yes, but so few and r between as to not matter. More importantly, they did not distract from the story itself.

For personal appeal, I really want to give this a dismal 1, but that is ONLY because it ended with such a cliffhanger, and the sequel is not out yet. In reality, it gets a strong 9 (A+) and may be revised to a 10 depending on the sequel. I hope to all that is good that it does not take as long to come out as this one did, relative to the first book in the series.

Plot: 9 | Technical Quality: 10 | Appeal to Reviewer: 9
