Book Review: 'Shatterproof' by Roland Smith

"There is gold and a multitude of rubies,
But the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel." -- Proverbs 20:15 (NKJV)

The basic plot for this book is very exciting and develops the underlying series quite well. The specific writing by Roland Smith left a lot to be desired. If you've enjoyed the series so far, stick with it. The outlines of some terrific upcoming books are starting to come into focus.

I especially liked the way that the escalation in what Vesper One has been demanding is deflected into some new kinds of plot developments. These shifts in the story improve the suspense quite a bit and keep the story from launching into an orbit with Neptune in terms of being over the top.

Grab a copy and get ready for some excitement!
