I was first attracted to this series as it seemed like a refreshing twist on the Praetorian Guard along with the fact it is military science fiction.

The main character stories sometimes seem like they are part of a Newton's cradle. Coming very close only to be bounced away again by the flow of the story.

I have been eagerly awaiting the third and final part of the trilogy for while, often checking the website and facebook page. I can honestly tell you that I have not been disappointed. The same flow to the story was there, urgency and tranquilty in parts when needed. I personally loved the little insights into military personalities and quirks as they are exactly the same to what I have encountered myself.

Like all good series though it is unfortunate and sad when they have to come to an end, but what an end indeed!!!

I've been a fan of The Redemption trilogy since the release of The Last Praetorian and have loved the characters and story the whole way through. Bit sad to see it end but looking forward to rereading the trilogy over the coming years. Great job Mike!

Really loved this series- as other reviewers have stated this gets better as it goes. I am queen of the free books on kindle and this is how I started on this series. However, unlike many others I then purchased the second and waited on tenter hooks for the final instalment!
There is good character development over the series and they act true to form. The technology is reasonably explained without being yawningly nerdish. The concept of the future is credible and it's nice to see that people are still the same as they are now! All tied together with gripping story telling, it makes for an excellent read. There are a few typos in this edition, the best being the mental image of the 'platter of tiny feet', however nothing significant to distract from the overall enjoyment.
Being a teacher and drilled into making next step comments, the only thing I would like is some explanation of how the ending was achieved (no spoilers here I'm afraid)! In his future writing I would also like to see the bad guys develop more comprehensively.
Finally, the warning, you will read this all very quickly- the reviewer who managed to ration the pages is obviously a pass master in self control. I work part time and have two young children so anything that can separate me from sleep must be absolutely amazing- this did it! Right, having written this, I'm off to start the trilogy again!
Well done Mike Smith, without doubt the best set of books I have read in a long time! Next please...!

I have enjoyed this story since the first book and have looked forward to each instalment. I'm sure that the fans all have their own perfect ending but overall i'm happy with this one and would really like another trilogy.

I really enjoyed this series - the characters are all very well written and you develop a real empathy for them. The dialogue is great and the pace and energy of the book meant I couldn't put it down. Beware if you like good science fiction for it will make you lose sleep.
