Vorpal Blade

This is the second book in the Looking Glass series. Vorpal Blade is a science fiction novel in every sense of the word. Where most books gloss over the science details that allow things to theoretically happen Ringo goes into, at times, agonizing detail. Not only does he explain how the spaceship is flying, but also all the little things that science geeks/lovers would ask.

While I enjoyed this detail, and could understand most of it, it might be too much for some. If you don't care how the space ship is flying, and just want them to get to the action, you probable don't want to read a couple pages worth of scientific explanations and this book is not for you.

That being said I think this is one of the most theoretically possible science fiction books involving aliens and space travel that I have ever read.
