Decepcionante continuación de La mano izquierda de Dios, libro con una historia prometedora que siento en éste desaprovechada. Se ha convertido en una especie de guerra santa en un mundo y personajes fantásticos que no ha sabido, a mi parecer, sacar todo el provecho que podría, ya que se pierde en escenas aburridas que nos alejan de la trama principal, y unos personajes que ahora conocemos mejor y resultan demasiado planos. Mirando el lado positivo, la crudeza, maldad y oscuridad de la ambientación sigue lograda, pero el resto, sin comentarios. A random purchase in a book store brought this to my reading shelf, and eventually to my night-stand. I didn't realize it was part of a series, but read it anyway. It has an interesting take on post-apocalyptic Earth, with the Catholic Church (or a faith based closely on it) ruling the world as the dominant power. It then goes on to show the back-stabbing, scheming and brutality behind it in a rather heavy-handed way. It feels like the author has an axe to grind, but at least he wraps it up in a nice story that will keep you turning pages. The characters are quite predictable, and there really aren't many surprises. But there is a fun twist in there anyway - no doubt which will be resolved in a later novel.Would I buy the rest of the series? Probably not, but it wasn't a bad read. Just not a great one.
Not as good as Left Hand of God, but still more enjoyable than most books I come across.
Damn amazing. A fantastical re-imagining of the Ender Series.
