My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Kyle has lost the use of his legs after being shot by a Glyrinny disrupter, so when he’s asked to hunt down a spy from the mysterious, shape shifting alien race, he’s more than happy to take the job. Obtaining passage on board the Scorpion, he meets a man from his home world, Grimm, who takes a special interest in Kyle despite his useless legs. Kyle himself has given up on seeing himself as a sexual being, but finds himself attracted to the warrior, even though that attraction could stand in the way of his mission.
Incursion is well thought out and excellently constructed. Voinov has put together an interesting world with some colorful races and characters. Grimm is a most fascinating person and you can really see why Kyle is attracted to him, even though he’s trying to concentrate on his mission. The story takes many twists and turns until we get to the final, brilliant conclusion which had me shaking my head with a smile on my face. Incursion is a smart story, one that’ll have you thinking about the implications long after the last page has been turned.
