Gaming Nexus writes: "Hjalti Danielsson is no stranger to EVE Online. He has written eighty short stories, two fanfest-performed plays, and now a novel, all in the name of the increasingly popular sci-fi MMO. Known as CCP Abraxas when cashing dev team checks, Danielsson – it goes without saying – has explored myriad facets of EVE life. It is part and parcel of his job to fill out aspects of the sociopolitical atmosphere often absent from in-game mission text. Given the fact that his hand has served as the architect to so much of the EVE universe, it’s a wonder that his novel doesn’t relish more in the worlds he’s created."
