Omnitrex Tech part 14

Link to part 1

Paul followed his towering, acrobatically talented and exceedingly fit savior into the building. They must have been about five stories above the Expanse floor. The platform was a bare balcony with a softly flowing rail structure and the entrance to the building was an arch about twelve feet tall at the apex and was paned with a black glass that didn’t hold his reflection.

Of the 193 books on the list, I’m not sure how many I would personally recommend today.
