    First, let me say that I rarely write out a full review I only do so when I feel that a book or series, author, etc deserves special recognition I most certainly feel that the Glass Complex Trilogy, and author John Hindmarsh, deserve for me to spend a little time to leave a written review I cannot recommend the Glass Complex Trilogy enough All three books in the trilogy were compelling reads in their own right, but the overall series was simply incredible This is the type of find that si First, let me say that I rarely write out a full review I only do so when I feel that a book or series, author, etc deserves special recognition I most certainly feel that the Glass Complex Trilogy, and author John Hindmarsh, deserve for me to spend a little time to leave a written review I cannot recommend the Glass Complex Trilogy enough All three books in the trilogy were compelling reads in their own right, but the overall series was simply incredible This is the type of find that simply makes me giddy, because it delivers farthan expected From the first chapter, I was hooked The story was fast paced, creative, and I was truly sad that I had finished the book Ultimately, that is a simple rule of thumb for me to know if a book or series is truly special This trilogy is truly special.The expected scientific advances found in most space operas were intertwined by the author with certain ancient cultural traditions in a way I found to be unique and essential to the narrative I am not going to give away any spoilers, so I will wrap up my review But I highly recommend this series to anyone looking for a diamond in the rough This series is absolutely worth a look

    They all have name tags, though The opening pages of this book are phenomenal, rattling the reader through hospital corridors as an empty gurney rushes along in pursuit of it s orders to collect someone Then the hectic journey back again, this time carrying the unconscious body of a man, until it discharges it s passenger in the I.C.U where nursing staff are waiting It is exciting stuff But there is also an inherent mystery no one knows who this man is, how the gurney was programmed, who They all have name tags, though The opening pages of this book are phenomenal, rattling the reader through hospital corridors as an empty gurney rushes along in pursuit of it s orders to collect someone Then the hectic journey back again, this time carrying the unconscious body of a man, until it discharges it s passenger in the I.C.U where nursing staff are waiting It is exciting stuff But there is also an inherent mystery no one knows who this man is, how the gurney was programmed, who informed the surgeon to make ready, nor how he came to be on the hospital ship, xTaur.The man is Captain Steg de Coeur, of the Imperial Intelligence Agency, astronavigator, military shuttle pilot and some hundred plus years out of his time He recovers, physically, thanks to the care of the staff, but his memory is, at best, patchy and, unable to explain his presence or strange uniform, is tried, convicted and sentenced to death as a spy and this is just the beginning of this action packed, well written story The writing is detailed and descriptive, and filled with a large cast of characters, including the murderous Xesset, a sinister priestess, the beautiful and talented Fain and an alien octopus named Monty and his four wives And lots of humans, many not quite as well meaning as they should be Remarkably, the author is able to breath life into all of hisprominent protagonists and the dialogue feels very real as well as often having touches of humour.And did I mention action packed This is the second book in a trilogy and, although I have not read the first of this series, it didn t matter My thanks to Book Review 22 for the gift of Fracture Lines It was an enjoyable read and I will almost certainly be looking out for the final story to continue the adventures with Steg
