This book was okay(ish). For a book dealing with the research of alien (advanced) artifacts it was surprisingly void of the technical aspects of such a story. As a matter of fact, the book was rather stupid in places. It almost gave a feeling that they where investigating the artifacts by poking at them with a stick. The plot in general was also not the most intelligently thought out one but it was still mildly entertaining to read.
Fairly early on it was quite obvious that the author geared up for a cliffhanger and sure enough, the book ended in an incredibly obvious one. There doesn’t seem to be a second volume available and there’s no mention of one coming, which of course is somewhat annoying but I’m quite frankly not sure I would read it if there was anyway.
