Sam has built a complicated universe of space and time travel, yet the reader is guided seemlessly through these concepts without getting all turned about. In fact it's remarkably easy and enjoyable to follow. Loved finding such a relatable character in the wise cracking wine scoffing Scharlette. Just add romance, drugs, gun toting aliens and pages of effortless irreverant humour and you've got yourself this entertaining space romp of a book. Loved it!
