It’s really good! The second book comes out July 16th and I’ll be ordering it, it’s called Howling Dark. Is also worth mentioning that just the Primary human empire is Roman like, their church the Chantry controls all the tech and who can use what in order to keep the peace through power and intimidation on a planetary scale. There are other factions of humans that live a sort of ultra libertarianism life style and have free access to tech on all levels assuming your social score is high enough. There is also a faction of humans fused with machines but they are only mentioned a few times.

It’s got gladiator style fights, wars, mystery, class struggles, and some great world building.
Everything I mentioned is in the books forward or first chapter so no spoilers.

That sounds amazing. Don't worry about the spoilers. It's going to be a few years before I tie into it lol.

'The Mote in God's Eye' by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle remains my favorite.


I always meant to read this one. Having read Ringworld i looked for other Niven books and this one looked good.
Thanks for reminding me!



You won't regret reading, "The Mote in God's Eye."

Kind regards,

Bally

Robert A. Heinlein - The Moon is a Harsh Mistress. One of my all time favorite books, let alone sci-fi. Also The Puppet Masters, Stranger in a Strange land(get the unexpurgated version) and many others. I don't have all the Lazarus Long books and that's a bummer as I'd like to read the rest.

Stephen King - The Dark Tower and related works.

Ray Bradbury - Fahrenheit 451 and gotta plug A Sound of Thunder.

Piers Anthony - The Blue Adept series. The game in these books would be so awesome to see on the screen. The Incarnations of Immortality series and the Bio of a Space Tyrant series are also well worth the time.

Childhoods end by Arthur C. Clark. Clarke wrote some really fantastic short stories as well. But that one is my favorite.
