Houses of Common - Derick William Dalton

*Book source ~ Kindle Lending Library


Ranyk and his sister Sckiik are from the planet Rildj. They live and work on Earth. Well, Ranyk sorta does since he does terraforming of planets, so he’s not around all that much. Sckiik is some kind of secret agent protecting the Rildj Ambassador from being assassinated.


This is a confusing book that travels at warp speed. It’s hard to keep up with the snappy dialogue and the various plots going on don’t seem to have much in common. The science is boring to me, there’s very little background, so I was kinda just dropped into the story and I just couldn’t get into it. Maybe at some point I’ll give this another go, but not any time soon.
