I saw 4 out of 5 and was all happy... then I read the review and I had to wonder if this was really good or not. It makes me want to go back and rewrite the whole book.
I need to not read reviews anymore. I'm WAY too sensitive to handle what other people say about me. I guess I've been spoiled by fanfic. I've never received a bad review before.
You should have seen me when I got a 2 out of 5 stars review... It was a world of wailing and gnashing of teeth.

VAGUE SPOILERS IN THE REVIEW
Overall I enjoyed the book. I thought the story was fun and mostly fast moving, I thought that two main characters were portrayed with sufficient depth and I enjoyed how they went from people disliking each other to where they were at the end of the story. However I sometimes felt that humorous (or was it more satirical, parodical) elements and darker elements of the story were not meshed well. In other words, while I understood what author was going for, I kind of expected a different tone in the story when associations with our times and "terrorists" are invoked. Do not get me wrong, I welcome those associations and really like when a writer does not shy away from them, I just felt kind of, I dont know, thrown out of the story, where we heard that Darkstar had a base on the moon. It was like too much of jump from absurd to reality. Not sure how to explain it better.
I also felt that author kind of forgot about Hank, when Verreint decides to take Warrick to visit his parents. I kept thinking, eh surely he meant his parents and Hank? It is not like this is even second book in the series, surely we remember that he is still there? Either that or I missed some important page where he was not there anymore.
