Catch the Lightning (Saga of the Skolian Empire, #2) 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.

t love it I like the series, but don t love it I like the writing style of Asaro, but don t love it My feelings toward Asaro is very similar to my feelings to Lois McMaster Bujold I like them both but, I ve never been wowed by either Oddly, however, I often find myself thinking about the characters months 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 brilliant and her excitement for her subject leaps from the page, but I would have been happy with less I grasped her theories well

subject leaps from the page, but I would have been happy with less I grasped her theories well enough to believe them for the purpose of her story, the pages and pages of further argument and detail were mind numbing.While I understand making entries in a series work as stand alone novels, having to re read the explanations of the Skolian genetics and how their mind This is the second book in Catherine Asaro s Skolian Empire Saga and is also another not to be missed read for hard core scifi fans and romance readers looking for a well written futuristic love story.Ms Asaro has created

book for me was the characters If I can t care about them I just won t be able to get into a book no matter how interesting others may find it The author takes as much care developing her characters as she does her plot which makes this book so special Tina may only be seventeen but she was forced to grow up early and her actions, and responses to the unbelievable situations she s t I rarely like the short summaries of the Skolian Empire books I always enjoy the stories What makes me like them so much is the characters In CATCH THE LIGHTNING, a young Earth woman is plucked from her 1987 life of poverty by a Skolian prince Her Mayan genetic heritage creates an attraction between Tina and Althor that they cannot deny It also offers hope for the dying, inbred Skolian family, if Althor, Tina and their Jag ship can escape their many enemies and get home.CATCH THE LIGHTNING I rarely lik Part of me wants to say I liked this a lotthan 3 stars, but parts of this book really annoyed the crap out of me.Asaro brings the awesome sciencey fun like she always does with the physics and explanations of physics terms and ideas that I am not terribly knowledgeable in Her ability to bring complex physics theories and ideas into her books are why I like this series so much.She didn t have as much political intrigue in this book, which is something else I really enjoy about the Skolian Part of
