3.0 out of 5 stars Weak point of the series, 28 April 2013

This review is from: The First Imperium (Crimson Worlds) (Kindle Edition)
When the Crimson Worlds books started, the battle scenes were really great - the powered armour was grand. Unfortunately, this book seems to have gone for an overall strategy style - with the battles sometimes being skipped over almost entirely (especially the space battles - For example, what happened to the huge battleship the AI brought to the battle near the end? All you get from the book was "Right, we have to stop that, let's go, full acceleration" and then it cuts).

I still enjoyed the hopelessness of the fight against the robotic enemy at first, until as a reader I realised that nothing major was going to change and that the enemy would be defeated. Some of the repetition in the books felt a little galling; For example, the reader got it the first time it was mentioned that the AI were low on antimatter weapons, but this gets repeated numerous times until a strategy is developed around getting the AI to use antimatter weapons. Likewise, the reader got it that fighting an implacable for was bad for morale, but I can't count how many times you were told that officers had to rally flagging veteran troops.

All in all, the weak point of the series. If you've read the previous books, you're probably going to pick this up anyway though! Hopefully the next one will be better.
