The Age of Scorpio is a multi-plotted sci-fi set in three separate points in time. It had great potential, but was a bit meandering and incoherent.
Far in the future, a pair of ruthless bounty hunters are hired by a mysterious benefactor to recover a valuable piece of stolen technology; in modern-day Portsmouth an ex-con searches for her sister with a technologically enhanced enforcer amidst the petty thugs of the criminal underworld; and in the past of ancient Britain, a druid chases after otherworldly warriors who kidnapped her tribe for some nefarious purpose. You spend the book waiting for the point when the narratives will converge and everything suddenly makes sense and your patience and concentration for the last 500 pages will pay off. Thing is, they don’t. Read the rest here.
