Been considering picking up the entire series of Saga of the Seven Suns by Kevin J anderson since I read book 3. But, The writing seems a bit simplistic and it reads like a thriller more than a science fiction story. Similar to how the dune books became intensely personal rather than big-picture oriented. I already have the niche filled with Dune and a whole bunch of Star Trek books, and I was looking for something more hard- science fiction, along the lines of Alastair Reynolds Revelation space or Century Rain. Or something different. Anything will do.
