THE AQUEOUS TRANSMISSION
BY MIKE EYE

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆
Many time when it comes to the Science fiction genre I find them to be overbearing with terminology in which I am unfamiliar with, but with Mike Eye’s creations of The Aqueous Transmission he easily blends the craftsmanship of the spacecraft and equipment while building a world in which has not been built yet.
I found this book to be one that was easy to read, easy to understand and easy to like. Eye took a great deal to provide the details needed to make this come alive in your mind. While the world building I found to be spectacular, the plot itself did take time to build up and develop. Perhaps the singular character, in the beginning, was the demise of that. Even with that aspect once that passes and other characters are become introduced you find yourself wanting to learn more about them.
The book is written in 3rd person following Magdalena and her mission to repopulate. At moments she is enjoyable but often I found her to be very full of herself. Which She should be, I mean the world in which she inhabits is under her mercy to expand with growth. She is a strong character with a strong ego to match. Just not very likable I suppose.
It was pleased however to see an author stretch just beyond the normal base of world creation. Throughout the book I found myself being swept away to Magdalena side. While some parts became strangely exotic it all seemed to work within the bindings of this story.
The Aqueous Transmission is a great blend of science fiction and fantasy, which is not something I read often. But if I came across more work similar to Mike Eye’s writing style then it would be something I couldn’t find myself turning down. -Shealwaysreads.com
