This review is from: Dark Matter: Star Carrier: Book Five (Kindle Edition)
Book 5 picks up some time after book 4. It was interesting finding out what all the old characters had been up to in the intervening years. The old enemies are still out there the sh'daar collective threatening from the shadows. The mysterious starlight aliens with their godlike technology are still a big unknown. But neither really come to the fore in book 5 as it concentrates on earths civil war and a new alien enemy that see us as a new food source. It's a complex and interesting story. Personally I end up skipping a lot of the technical explanations of how the tech works. It feels like each book has explained FTL and it's associated technology's to death, and I just cannot take any more, captain. Even considering the swathes of story you have to skim over if you not overly interested in alternate physics, there is a worthwhile story to be read here.
