Very entertaining, though I wish we had seen more about how the Mason parents had become such fame-hungry people. Or maybe even a little bit about Shaun and Georgia's parents. Or the defense of Oakland, which is hinted at in Deadline.
Honestly, I wouldn't have included all these "Why didn't she show X?" wishes if Grant had not talked about the Masons in this novella. I wish it had been more connected to characters we were interested in. But my wishes for more information don't make this a bad novella. It happens at breakneck speed and is very exciting. I especially felt sympathetic for Dr. Kellis and his husband.
