Scott's Review:
4 out of 5 stars on June 1, 2001

This book would have to be what I would classify as a hard core science fiction novel. Instead of simply taking place in some fantasy realm, or some other universe not created by the author, it's in a universe of its own.

The basic idea of the story is that there exist different layers of space. Each layer causes light to travel slower, and layer ten is used for high speed travel. The author has obviously thought out many of the effects of the slow light speed, and clearly presents them in the story.

The story itself was well done, I felt too. The characters seemed real enough, and believable, which made up for the times when you had trouble following the science of the ship they were on.

In the end it was a very well done story, and a nice change from the formulaic science fiction and fantasy books that are so overwhelming.
