I WOULD HAVE TO SAY "JUST OKAY"

While certainly not the author's best work, it is indeed different. I am sure it is just me, but I had a terrible time tracking on this one. The initial chapters were loaded with imagined "tech talk," most of which left me quite confussed as to just what was going on. Being a fan of most of the older SiFi and Fantasy authors, I did enjoy the references to their works. I really do not feel this work will satisfy the hard cord SiFi fan, nor, for that matter, the hard core fantasy fan. On the other hand, I have certainly read worse. I did not feel the author did all that well in his character development and left more unanswered questions about them than he answered. Parts of the main story had real substance, where quite well written and were actually fun to read. Then the author would drift off to...well, I am not sure where. I suppose if you are a hard core fan of Niven, this will be one you may want to read. For the rest, your reading time could probably be spent more wisely elsewhere.
