I'll begin by saying this.. If you do not have a love for aspects of science and science fiction, you may not enjoy the some parts of this book. I however love it. Venessa has masterfully brought the theory of wormholes and traversing the space time continum to life. Imagine a device that could instantly open a wormhole and take you within a mere seconds to another galaxy light years from our own. Now imagine the ramifications of leaving said wormhole open indefinitely and you have the basis for this book.
It's been a very long time since I've come across a book on this topic where the author did so much research that all the fiction mixed with it seem real. This book is perfect for those who gaze up to the stars every night wondering if there is life out there.
I absolutely love the amount of training the "green peas" get put through.. It's impossibly hard, tedious, and challenges death at every turn. The detailing for the training sessions is phenominal really. I love that each new guardian has their own special abilites and a training guardian with simliar ones to teach them.
