This martian is officially in uncharted waters. With the theme of the show being exploring the universe of science fiction it’s nice when we divert from ground I haven’t been over and this was a big diversion. I took a little time to warm to this book but what I will say is it totally rewards second readings as once you have your bearings in this universe the story is actually high paced and action filled. Horza is kind of the luke skywalker only having to work things out on his own, no ghostly jedi here and there are questions to be asked of both the “good” and the “bad” sides. Patience and taking the time to get your bearings will open up a sprawling universe with many more stories to follow.
