Product Description

Product Description

Three years after the brutal first contact encounter with the alien Kreelan Empire, the Confederation is desperate for a victory. With over a dozen worlds under siege by legions of Kreelan warriors, President McKenna orders her military leaders to deliver a victory, no matter the cost, to give humanity hope.

Ichiro Sato, his wife Steph, Roland Mills, Scarlet, and the irrepressible General James Sparks are once again at the sharp end of the spear in a mission to take back the colony of Alger’s World from the alien invaders before the Kreelans have exterminated the human population.

But overwhelming firepower may not be enough. For leading the Kreelans is Ku’ar-Marekh, a warrior priestess who is feared even among her own kind. With her spirit trapped between life and death, drawn to war from a lonely sojourn among distant stars, she is known as the Dead Soul…

3.0 out of 5 stars Dead Soul The Last War Trilogy 24 Oct 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Somewhat disappointed with this 3rd novel in the series. The writing and excitement are as good as ever; but feel let down on the content.
The first novel "First Contact" had the makings of a gripping series. Would the Kreelans find the "one" that they're looking for and would it be someone from earth? I was hoping to find that by the end of the 3rd book we would have some inkling. Unfortunately not - so one of the high points of anticipation is a disappointment.
With the anticipation (hope) of a solution for the Kreelans being met by humans not materialising, other aspects of the 3 stories become less acceptable.

The first meeting and early consequences of contact with a vastly superior species is gripping and enjoyable to read (1st novel). After tha,t the many battles and countless deaths (although not written in a too grizzly a manner) become tedious. The way the aliens play at fighting humans by limiting their own abilities to make the battles more even (until it suits them to fight harder) is depressing, were it for real. In fact, if was not for the tantalising hope that the saviour of the Kreelan race might be human, the reality would be that these aliens would have annihilated us very quickly. Who wants to read about the expected demise of the human race, if there is no light at the end of the tunnel?

There are human/human and alien/alien relationships and even human/alien relationships developed in the book(s) that lighten the death and destruction, which are quite heart warming. But overall the sense is that the Kreelans will sooner or later overwhelm human kind - not a pleasant thought to consider and read as entertainment when in reality we're probably quite capable of doing that ourselves.

Three stars, because I really enjoyed it, but its format was too similar to the previous book in the series, for which I would give four stars. Sometimes these series of books milk the theme for too long. One becomes tired of wading through the same format, waiting for the denouement. I fear that this is the case here. No big ending, which is always a disappointment. Sorry, but I did enjoy reading them all the same, and consider that as value for money, at today's low prices, they were excellent. Don't think I'm damning with faint praise, because I would buy them again, given that history could repeat itself. A good theme, but In my book, it would have been OK for three in the series at the most, with a conclusive ending in book three.

4.0 out of 5 stars Three is the limit 30 Nov 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read the first two books in this 'trilogy' and enjoyed them, then felt obliged to read the third to see where the story led. It is now clear that this is not a trilogy but a never ending series of related books so I feel a tad cheated. Some will say you can't get enough of a good thing but I have now reached the end of the road.

An enjoyable read but three books were enough for me.

Read the whole trilogy, not being a book critic I have only based my rating on my own method of rating a book which is thus.
" am I looking forward to continuing reading the book?" answer in this case a big Yes!
Really enjoyed these books my thanks to the author, just wish I had his imagination.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just can't get enough 30 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Started of this series with s free book from Amazon and haven't been able to stop reading Michael's books. Story is great and the characters are well believable. I see some commenting on the amount of battle scenes in the books, well this is what the series is all about, telling the story of people's life's and how the invasion affects them
