Rydeman dovetails the book with his fine earlier novel, “The Divine Sea” in a way that adds additional depth to the experience of this story, though familiarity with that book is not necessary to be caught up in the powerful rush of this one. He presents a future military with the confidence that only a military man could master, and when the long, breathtaking battle that roars across the latter part of the book is fully engaged, it is impossible to pause. Rydeman deftly weaves together hundreds of moments using a kaleidoscope of characters, alien, human and AI. There are astonishing moments of revelation, linking cataclysms of the soul to a ravaging of the solar system gripped in a paroxysm of battle.
I saw things in this book that my mind has never dreamed. “The Dragon and the Moon” will expand your capacity for awe, and leave you astonished, satisfied, and deeply hungry for more.
