If you ever read a Raeden Zen you will probably remember his writing/books as the type you can't just relax and read. Nope your brain has to be working to full capacity and paying attention lest you miss a word or misunderstand one of his many complex ideas. So exactly the kind of book that tends to rivet readers of the sci-fi genre.Mixed within the science fiction are subtle strains of a futuristic steampunk and dystopian world. This novella length story is an introduction the Reassortment series.Zen can be very cold and harsh in his descriptions, which brings me to the element I think his writing lacks, emotion. Well written and fast moving creative concepts in abundance, but the reader often fails to connect, because of the sterile style.
