Spaceships and FTL travel and psychic powers, oh my! It’s the first book of a trilogy that feels like it was written 30 years ago but only came out about five years ago. That’s not a dig – I really enjoyed it. While I was reading it, I felt like I did when I read books in middle and high school. It’s partly the subject matter and partly the style and the lack of awareness of current events. The characters are diverse and interesting without any point being made about it. Except that they exist without making any points about it, which is a point in itself.
