An excellent Cook novel, in a different style 9 Oct 2010
By S. Marsh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
There was once a rumor that Cook was several different authors, given the different styles of each of his series. This book was part of what helped to create that rumor.

In some ways the Starfishers stories are submarine warfare and the Manhattan project in space. Think of that approach as providing a structural gloss to this story of war and triumph.

Cook develops his plot lines, twists in the new story elements and wraps them up cleanly. While this is a new release for Nightshade, it is a re-release of an excellent book by Cook that actually made me hope for more books in the same setting. You could set a Traveller campaign here, the scope would support adaption to a movie, the book comes to a satisfying conclusion that does not leave one cheated or elements unresolved. But it comes to a conclusion without ending the setting, so that other stories are possible, just not needed.

Not too much more I can say without spoilers, but I was pleased when I read the original release, I'm pleased to see it again. Excellent science fiction of the old school type with complete characters and a clean internal logic.

What can I say, I'm still buying books by the author many, many years after I bought this one.

Decent Conclusion 30 Nov 2010
By Eric Wisdahl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In my opinion this was the weakest of the Starfisher trilogy. It seemed to me that there was a bit of confusion as to what technology level everything was supposed to be at, and, what other supernatural items were known as compared to the first novel in the series. There were parts that seemed cobbled together and it seemed a bit rushed at the end. The enemy was never really explained; the key to unlocking the star's end fortress was glossed over; the actuality of whether or not deals were upheld; the short account of the first battle in the war with the massed legions. All of these things and more seemed disjointed.

And yet, it was still a worthwhile novel. I enjoyed reading of Moyshe and his plights. There were portions of the novel that were quite interesting (the discussion of the various alien races, the idea of the climbers, the scenes where Moyshe was hiding out on The Broken Wings, Moyshe's varous psyches breaking down, etc).

I just kind of wish that the series had continued on in the path of the first novel.
Glen Cook does it again. 15 Nov 2012

I haven't read any of his mystery books because that just isn't my genre. However I've read the bulk of his science fiction and fantasy material and every second of reading is pure joy.
