Review of "Abaddon's Gate" on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

I've got a confession to make. More often than not, when there's a deeply religious character in a sci-fi novel, I find him/her annoying, not likeable at all. I don't know why. I'm not religious myself, but I've got nothing against faith (just the opposite, I envy who has it). I just don't like that kind of character. Abaddon's gate has one of those characters but surprisingly, I liked her a lot. Probably it's the best among the new characters introduced in this novel. She sees life in a different way than myself, but she's someone I'd love to spend an evening talking to, because she's deeply spiritual but not blinded by her beliefs. See? It wasn't that difficult to write a likeable, religious character.
That said, abaddon's gate is a very good addition to the saga. Plot finally moves significantly ahead, opening up a really interesting scenario to exploit …
