Got it in yesterday, started reading at about 20.00 hours. It's now 15.18, and I finished it 18 minutes ago. What a read, just wow.
I find it very hard to grade Vanguard per novel, to me it's one long story. So I suppose the Outstanding I voted, goes for the entire series of Vanguard, and is a big THANK YOU, to David, Kevin, Dayton and Marco for their combined efforts, creating a series with a proper beginning, middle and end. This was just a fantastic read, and I'm gratefull for the effort that has gone into it.
