It’s interesting how every book in Gateway series feel like it should belong to a completely different sci-fi genre. While the first novel mostly concentrated on the protagonist and analyzing his mental state, and the second was some weird xenophobia mystery, the third installment is a space opera that offers the grandest of scales but is somehow the least exciting.
Well, at least I know what one of the main inspirations of Mass Effect was.
Feels very incomplete, as if it just stops instead of delivering an ending
|Large intergalactic scale||The answers to the Heechee mysteries turn out pretty underwhelming|
|Relatively interesting, likable characters||Despite the scale, the least memorable of Gateway books|
|Engrossing plot with a couple of cool twists|
