What lies beneath the millions of orbiting nanotech satellites that shroud the world called Haze? Major Keir Roget's mission is to make planetfall in secret, find out, and report back to his superiors in the Federation, the Chinese-dominated government that rules Earth and the colonized planets. For all his effectiveness as a security agent, Roget is troubled by memories of an earlier mission. When he was assigned to covert duty in the Noram backcountry town of St. George, he not only discovered that the long-standing Saint culture was neither as backward nor as harmless as his superiors believed but also barely emerged with his life and sanity whole. Now, scouting Haze, Roget finds a culture seemingly familiar yet frighteningly alien, with hints of a technology far superior to that of the Federation. Yet he is not certain how much of what he sees is real---or how to convey a danger he cannot even prove to his superiors, if he can escape Haze. Download and start listening now!

    " More like a 2.5. There are some interesting ideas here, but it took an awful lot of time to get to them. Plus, there was barely any character development. There are people out there who this book would be perfect for, but I'm not one of them. "

    " interesting style with two seperate missions by the main character told in alternating chapters. Lots of good ideas on environment and society. "

    " SPL recommended this and I liked it. Competent and engaging sci fi. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Craig | 1/14/2014

    " Kinda disappointing, especially for this author - not sure it even deserves 3 stars, at least looking at the book as a whole. The alternating chapters seemed mostly pointless (a current and a previous mission by the protagonist). Was almost as if the author had written two novellas and decided to mash them together. Each was fine on its own (maybe even worth 4 stars each), but had little relation to each other when blended into one book. Some interesting political discussions in both parts, but again, no coherent whole to be discerned. "

    " I liked this book. It was a good science fiction. I enjoy Modesitt's writing style. "

    " Even in the future, people will continue to be arrogant and think that they know it all or know what is best. Even when they have over whelming evidence that they are up against a superior technology. Don't confuse me with the data and facts, my mind is already made up. Bleak look at human freedom versus ecology but there will always be an upper class. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marita | 11/4/2013

    " I am pretty new to Modesitt so I find his ability to make familiar (Mormon culture) seem new and amusing. I found this jumping around between St. George and Haze confusing and wish he would have found a better way to let us understand why Roget chose as he did in the end. Had I read this instead of listening to it I might have been able to keep these stories straight easier I think. I read sci-fi because I love all the action and the new angles on society, environment and politics and on this level Haze delivers nicely. "

    " This is the first Modesitt I have read and I think I'll be reading more! The two stories woven together, each revealing something of the other is a really nice device - and a very effective way to keep me reading "just one more chapter" =) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 M. Pax | 10/7/2013

    " I really enjoyed this. Sci-fi that makes you think. My type of story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Aaron | 8/16/2013

    " One of my favorite authors, but I didn't really like this book. Was even more philosophical that his other books (and that's saying something), but seemed overly repetitious. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric | 7/6/2013

    " As usual, the way that Modesitt deals with politics is brilliant. The only thing that could have made this book better would be more focus. It seems like it needed to be more closely tied to other books or have a tighter focus (it rambled a bit at times) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aaron | 3/7/2013

    " Incorporates several contemporary SF themes: American dominance has given way to a neo-Mandarin Chinese government, future economics are built around environmental issues. Interesting look at an intelligence agent's reconnaissance of a splinter colony that has surpassed its parents in many ways. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ron | 5/12/2012

    " Standard Modesitt, Jr. book where you are trying to find out what is happening along with main character. Bit confusing in that flashbacks happen at chapter changes. In the end, a bit unsatisfying. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rakib_khan | 5/2/2012

    " .....this book was abit confusing for me at times,but basically I liked the general style of writing.....so in the end it was an enjoyable read..... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karen | 2/24/2011

    " My first by Modesitt. Disappointing. The characters are flat and one-dimensional and the author never makes us care about any of them nor does he make the action enthralling enough to keep the reader avid about turning the pages. I am *dragging* myself to the finishline, but it is a laborious trip. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sandy | 2/20/2011

    " I liked the ending, but felt like the rest was a slog, and I did what I never do, skipped over a big part in the middle. If you are tempted to read Modessit, stick to his fantasy which was quite good. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeff Raymond | 2/11/2011

    " A slog of a sci-fi read. A little heavy, a LOT confusing, and I'm still not entirely sure I got it. "

    " This book was hard for me to get into & somehow I never quite latched on to the main character, but the premise was fascinating & enjoyable! "
