The Shifter Dimension (Starbirth) (Volume 2) Reviews
Projection for the Future‘The Shifter Dimension’ by J M Johnson, Book 2 in the ‘Starbirth’ series, is one of the better novels in a somewhat over-populated genre. It is very well written by an author who creates a completely authentic, realistic setting and who has a considerable flair for description, which cannot be said for many writers of action books.The storyline is very successful and is bound to interest readers of military and secret service operations, especially those who enjoy technological details. There are many details of technology, both already existing and those which come from the author’s speculative imagination and provide the slight world-building content of the book.In some instances, the narrative falls into the trap of over-explanation. There is perhaps too much description; the details of the teleportation process, for example, while fascinating at first appearance, are somewhat overdrawn when continued throughout the book.There is excellent development of some characters, but others tend to be flat and almost stock-character in nature. Perhaps the reason is that such a complex and extremely well-controlled storyline takes over from the full presentation of human action and motivation.‘The Shifter Dimension’ is a substantial novel, containing a great deal of direct narration, which sometimes becomes a little ponderous. This is probably necessary, because the book is part of a series, and the back story and forward projection are built into its structure.However, it is a technically accomplished, very readable book, well worth the purchase price and highly recommended.
