I don't know how experienced authors could take such a fascinating premise and ruin it.
Sigh .... A big thumbs down for me.
I thought it was a great (if unoriginal) premise that the authors just didn't deliver on. It felt like one long scene-setting pre-amble, and I kept waiting for the story to start. I would imagine there will be a sequel, as they still have a story to tell (I hope).
