I'll be interested to read this. I might actually have to buy it (despite my financial situation), as the library doesn't have it. I loved the Eli Monpress books, and I've loved the two Paradox books I've read. She had some issues with her writing early on, but I think she's really grown over her relatively short career so far.

I'll have to hunt this one down, because I thoroughly enjoyed the Eli Monpress books.
I will expand your TBR pile.

I'm Saloninus, by the way. And I tell lies, from time to time. Which goes to prove the old rule; never entirely trust a man who talks about himself in the third person.

How did it compare to Eli quality-wise? I found the last two of those to be pretty good, but the first few weren't at the same level.  :-\
I wish the world was flat like the old days, then I could travel just by folding a map.

She wrote this after Eli, also she's wrote her Sci-fi series as well under the name Rachel Bach so the Quality of her work should be much better then her debut novel if a writer improves with each novel right?  :)
