 A promising continuation of Quod Olim Erat, a fantastic story with intriguing characters, stunningly deep world building and clever twists. 

The originals only flaw was it barely scratched the surface of the universe and lacked the high stakes of a thriller, resulting in the plot (though well structured) feeling like it had little weight or impact behind it. 

I'm pleasantly optimistic about the direction the author is taking with this sequel. It looks as if he's taken to heart the constructive critique and is diving into the heart of the action. 

A more satisfying narative backed by the existing solid and intelligent writing style, I'm hopeful that this story will grow into a stronger novel than its already good prequel. 

If intregue, action and contemplating the definition of what is privacy is your thing, this story is for you.

Continued from Quod Olim Erat

As a direct sequel to Lise Eclaire's other brilliant work, I'll urge you to read that before starting in on The Scuu Paradox. This story is just beginning to delve into Elcy's new adventures, but be sure to bookmark the page for later reading or follow along with her weekly posts, you won't regret doing so.

More thorough review pending on more released story content.

Book Two: Better than ever before

This is book two of a series, the first book being 'Quod Olim Erat'.

Elcy is just as entertaining as ever, and this time the plot is faster-paced. Intrigue and distrust have thickened in the air since the previous novel, and action is picking up with some classic and enjoyable space-grunt combat. It's a good sign when it looks like the auhor has listened to earlier criticism, and it's even better when their writing is better for it. I've got high hopes for this fiction, and it's looking like it'll surpass its progenitor easily.
