I received a call Thursday from a local bookstore that my copy of Synthesis
had arrived. I picked up yesterday and finished it today. I have posted a review over at my site:
In short: A great addition by Swallow to the series. SecondGen White-Blue turned out to be one of my favorite characters in the book, and the Sentry Coalition turned out to be a very well-developed race. Plenty of high-concepts here mixed in with action and character drama. Very nicely done, and fits in perfectly with Titan
's mission statement for exploration.
