The unflappable Peggy Hailey has reviewed Set the Seas on Fire for RevolutionSF. Actually, this is the second time she's reviewed it, having read the shorter version years ago. No reviewer should have to tackle the same book twice, but I'm glad to see that Peggy seems to have enjoyed the longer incarnation.
The realistic detail in setting and character makes it all the easier to suspend disbelief once the supernatural elements start showing up; you really care what happens to these people, which is quite a feat. So if you like fast-paced adventure stories that don't sacrifice characters on the altar of plot, then you really should be reading Chris Roberson.
