I read half of this book and had to give up. Absolutely nothing happened and the story that finally started to unfold had so many holes and bad information in it, I finally had to just put it down. I don't do it often, but in this case there was no other choice. The characters had such unbelievable talents, that you wondered why they had to wait 7 years to begin their objective. The technological information was slapdash and contributed even more to a story that just shouldn't be.
