[Book Review] The Forever Watch

The Forever Watch / David Ramirez

Earth is dead, uninhabitable, gone.  Humans are making their way across the galaxy in a century spanning journey in the star ship ark Noah.  Genetic tinkering, mutation, and technology have changed the face of humanity, manifestations of psi abilities and distinct breeds of humans are the norm.  A mysterious death leads to the discovery of a history of unsettling events, grisly disappearances, and evidence of a cover-up by the highest levels of government.  What they find may endanger not only life as they know it, but endanger the survival of the entire human race.

A science-fiction thriller where a misstep may end mankind's last journey.

 The Forever Watch has a few issues.  While many authors have beautifully worked multiple related strands into a cohesive story, The Forever Watch falls short.    There are several important storylines that fight for dominance rather than work in concert to smoothly further the plot.

The story takes some time to find its pace.  It opens with overly declarative descriptions.  However midway through Ramirez produces some beautiful prose.
