    2.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum Awakening is a strange novel, one I wish I could have enjoyed a lotI wouldn t say I disliked it, but neither did it hold my interest and later on it just plain weirded me out After mulling it over for a bit, I ve concluded my disappointment probably stemsfrom feeling suckered in by its description, rather than something specific associated with the story.First of all, the setting is Artemis, 2.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum Awakening is a strange novel, one I wish I could have enjoyed a lotI wouldn t say I disliked it, but neither did it hold my interest and later on it just plain weirded me out After mulling it over for a bit, I ve concluded my disappointment probably stemsfrom feeling suckered in by i...

    All things considered, Artemis Awakening is not an unpleasant read Just a very straightforward one The plot is well put together but somewhat predictable The observant reader will see the hook for book two coming quite some time before the climax of the book It is the kind of cozy science fiction that will not really challenge theexperienced read and as such, I thought it was only mildly entertaining I might be convinced to read the second volume but I doubt it will leap to the top All things considered, Artemis Awakening is not an unpleasant read Just a very straightforward one The plot is well put together but somewhat predictable The observant...

    I clearly know this is bubble gum pulp, not all that well written but certainly fun The only thing keeping me from loving this enough to continue the series is that the character building wasn t all strong, a little bumbling And the interludes that you finally figure out on like the last two pages Would have been way, way, wayinteresting if that happened about halfway through They pissed me off the entire book so the payoff at the end was zilch Especially as it was written as a I clearly know this is bubble gum pulp, not all that well written but certainly fu...

    It felt like an eighties or nineties fantasy novel, a real flashback feeling Which could be a good thing, but though it was not unpleasant it was also not at all compelling As I got toward the end I wasn t planning to rush into reading the second book, and might not ever have gotten to it at all if I hadn t already reserved it when I got this one and if there wasn t at least a bit of a hook near the end that I should have seen coming but I really didn t care enough to try and figure out the It felt like an eighties or nineties fantasy novel, a real flashback feeling Which could be a good thing, but though it was not unpleasant it was also not at all compelling As I got toward the end I wasn t planning to rush into reading the second book, and might not ever have gotten to it at all if I hadn t already reserved it when I got this one and ...

    The Good If you can get past the first half of the book s slow and pretty boring progress, there is a fairly decent story here The shift in pace was jarring, but I was so thankful for it, we ll call it a good thing When dealing with the science fiction angles on genetic modification and breeding, the book was at its best Had the entire book focused on that, instead of meandering through weird feudal fantasy to get there, it could have been a 5 star read.The Bad My big problem with this book The Good If you can get past the first half of the book s slow and pretty boring progress, there is a fairly de...
