First off, I want to say I went into this book blind. I was ‘assigned’ this book in a group, and was a little taken aback by the religious aspect of it. However, I do have to say that it was a really good book!
The premise states that an old scripture is found which states that the son of god will return on a different planet, so the government goes looking for him – and finds him. The scenery in this book is vivid, pleasant to read about and the adventure feels real. There is technology I would never even have thought to invent (implant technology? What’s that? Pretty creative), to make the earthlings look more like the natives of other planets.
