I just finished reading The Calypsis Project by Brittany M. Willows.
This is an extremely well put together and detailed science fiction project. I say project because it seems to be so much more than a mere book. The author has not only created another world for humans to live on, but she's also created multiple alien life forms, as well as their home planets.
I was drawn in by the plot and characters fairly quickly, however, I had a hard time latching on to one character as my favorite. I was so caught up in what was going to happen next that I fell more in love with the suspense than I did the characters themselves.
Despite that, the characters are well rounded and incredibly human (even the alien ones), combining some poor decision making and character flaws -- all very relatable characteristics.
It's a great read, but definitely not a short one! I got confused several times and had to retrace my steps. But that made it quite enjoyable for me. I liked having to think my way through a book instead of simply flowing along with the plot.
