A mediocre tale of alien "invasion". Kind of simplistic and contrived.
A moderately interesting story of treachery and revenge. Sci-fi takes a back seat to relationships, so be forewarned on that count.
While Poul Anderson has quite a good reputation in the sci-fi world, I found nothing extraordinary in this tale. It's hard to put my finger on the disappointment, but I guess the writing just seems lacking in maturity. The characters are a bit contrived, and tend a little toward the melodramatic. Some of the plot elements are just a little shaky.
Definitely worth reading, but just not an outstanding sci-fi story in my opinion.
It's hard to do a time travel story that hasn't been done. This one, in a lot of ways, falls into the same vein as so many others. There are, however, enough differences to make this an interesting read - up until the end, that is. The ending is a total disappointment that just leaves you feeling empty, like you've just wasted your time with the rest of the story.
