    Having enjoyed the first volume of the Skolian Saga I started this book with high expectations They were met in part.The beginning of this book is wonderful and the story of Tina and her friends helping Althor escape Earth is exciting Where the novel failed for me was in the depth of mathmatical and scientific detail Catheraine Asaro is no doubt bri...

    Catch The Lightening is a book in two parts The first part is set on Earth in an alternate 1980s This I found rather boring and not my type of book The second and, in my opinion, the better part but not by a lot was set off Earth.Really not for me.
