Plot: The author has created a strikingly well-realized setting for his characters to inhabit. The storyline is intricate yet still easy to follow and holds the reader's interest throughout. A lively, inventive premise and a distinctive universe result in an engaging and often memorable reading experience.

Prose/Style: While the plot is solid, the prose here would benefit from some work, particularly in terms of dialogue, which can be stilted, robotic, and overly formal, even in exchanges between characters who are intimately connected.

Originality: The author has crafted a unique universe and storyline, with original characters readers will find nowhere else. The creativity that has gone into developing this setting is beyond impressive.

Character Development/Execution: Because of the language challenges and sometimes stilted dialogue, character development is challenging. Dr. Marzian is the most fleshed out in this work, but other minor characters are less finely explored and harder to pinpoint.
