Rating: 5 out of 5
This was a brilliant read, especially if you are a sci-fi fan. The story is based ~2444 AD and is based in another star system that has been colonised by human about 300 years ago. The colony have not had any contact with Earth since they landed due to a series of mishaps and now they refuse to be recognised as a colony. They want nothing to do with Earth. However, Earth dispatched a party to negotiate colony's demands and study the colony and the planet.
The characters are all interesting and really come to life as you read the book. The story is very gripping - I was so disappointed when it ended only because I just wanted to continue reading! Can't wait to read the next book and highly recommend it. Brilliant plot, excellent story, good characters and not an implausible storyline!
