Vale of Stars actually drew me in and kept me going to the last page. I usually do not like stories where there are multiple generations and social issues and political conflict however, the author was able to draw me in and keep my interest all the way to the end. This may be for the very reason some others will not like it however; because the political and social aspects were presented at a high level instead of long drawn out details of those conflicts.
It was interesting how the evolution of the social structure was presented for family, science, religion, and government. For example there was the symmetrical presentation of how the colonists came to view the ship dwellers as gods and how the sea dwellers looked at the colonists as gods.
There are gaps between the generations, and the respective generational stories while tied together thru a common bloodline, seem to start at a new stage of the social evolution for the colonists at the beginning of each one. I can see that there could be more stories written in this same universe.
I will definitely be looking for more from this author. Anyone who can hook me into a story that I would usually get bored with someone to keep an eye out for.
