T was pleasantly surprised by this book. I wasn't sure what to expect when I first started reading it. I definitely didn't expect not one, but two stories.
Saving the human race is a frantic business. Or a tedious one. It all depends on what stage of the process you're taking part in.
At the start of each chapter, you get a piece of a short story. The story ties in to the main story. The amount you get varies from three sentences for the first chapter to a little more than one and a half pages for chapter two.
The main story on the other hand, I felt was a little lengthy. The book is 657 pages, with about 630 of them were the main story, (give or take five pages). Even though I thought the book was good, I felt that there were details that were not need. Other than that, I found the book was well written and the characters were well developed. Rigg, main character, was a character that I could get behind. Umbo and Loaf were great compains for Rigg.
I think the author did a great job at not only writing two good stories, but also tying them together. The plot did get a little bit complicated at times, but I never once felt lost. I definitely recommend reading this book.
