I'm adding a review with my son's input as my son LOVES Michael Kott's books. He read this in two days. He greatly enjoyed Life Shift and looked forward to this book with anticipation. For sci fi & mythology fans these books are perfect. He felt it was better than Life Shift and more coherent, not a sequel but a "parallel" & good as a stand alone novel if you have not read Life Shift. He also says that he hopes there are several more after this one.   Bianca May ****
