“The Arc of the Universe is fast-paced, full of action and adventure, and presents a lot of very interesting ideas; particularly in regard to politics and morals.
"The book is well laced with uniquely described creatures, and in-depth, satisfying explanations of the politics and science at work within the book's universe.
“With political machinations every bit as complex and robust as one might find in Game of Thrones, this book deserves a careful read to absorb the details.
“Protagonist Quinn, lone human navigating the complex politics and alien cultures of the worlds-spanning Consensus, constantly has his assumptions challenged as he tries to understand what motivates members of many different species.
“Book two of The Arc of the Universe is a mosaic of secret plots and the very open consequences that result. It's the kind of book that, once finished, must be digested uninterrupted for best results. Take the time: this book is worth the investment.”
Terence P Ward, Allbooks Review
“The storyline surpassed my initial expectations. I was expecting it to be of high quality and it was but it was a gripping story that constantly makes you question. It has multiple layers and utilises alien characters effortless so that they add to the rich fabric of the story-line.
“It was no surprise that Quinn emerges as a greater hero in this book. He’s grown substantially and feels just as real, if not more, in this novel. The strength of this character is that he regularly experiences all the emotions, the doubts and fears of any real person and this makes him a strong character who keeps the reader interested.”
“Thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish. Those who read it will definitely wish to read the next book on the strength of this one.”
