Jesse Seth Frankel's review of Dr. Nof Is Missing, an ebook by Thadd Evans. 5/5 Stars!
A short novella, Dr. Nof is the continuing adventure of Michael Brin, a detective. The time: the future. The worlds: amazing.
The tale involves a futuristic detective--Brin--on the hunt for a shape-shifting robot. I have not yet read the first two installments, so that put me somewhat at a disadvantage, but I got the idea of the quest, and what a quest it is!
Full of sci-fi tech that is made comprehensible to this reader in a very accessible manner, the author weaves a fast-moving tale that is sure to please hardcore S/F readers.
What I liked was the pace. Fast, but not overly so, it maintained a solid rhythm and didn't lag. It's offbeat, has a cast of colorful characters, and although all the issues aren't resolved by novella's end, it leaves room for more adventures. Worth a read or two, and that means getting the first two novellas to catch up on!

Fallen Angel Review for Portal 2901, Part 2: As the story opened, it was sad how Fiman was reliving the past with many of his friends who were no longer alive, while in reality he was in a space ship traveling to an unknown world. The way Fiman and his friends took their chances at a possible new life on a chance that the ship could rewrite their DNA to keep them alive. The new species they encountered were fascinating and unique. Fimans ability to interact with many of the species on the world was interesting, but when they learned that the world was under siege, it took the danger to a new level. As the second book in the series, the groundwork was written in the first book allowing the reader a much easier time in following the story line.Part 2 of Portal 2901My main page.
