This book is very fantastic. It presents itself as a blend of several different sci-fi franchises. The chief influences are Dune and Warhammer 40K, although it's very lite on the grimdark. Other influences of note are Stargate and the Succession duology by Scott Westerfeld. While the author lists Farscape as an inspiration, I had a hard time seeing that.

It's one of the most imaginative settings out there, and it's very immersive. The art might not be for everyone, as the pieces look like they were drawn with colored pencil, but I found them very evocative. Think art nouveau meets Giger plus the Dark Horse Tales of the Jedi comic books of the early 90s.

The only criticism I have is that the book references the Fate Core book and the Fate Core Toolkit. Those are both CC licensed, so I would rather the author have included the text here in the book.
