Continues to develop a great separate story arc,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Lost Stars: Perilous Shield (Kindle Edition)
When an author continues to write about a universe they usually stay on the same 'side'. For example Tolkien never wrote a story from an orc's point of view. Hemry's 2nd book of the Lost Stars series continues to develop his universe from the other side of the Lost Fleet. It is also very nice to see how the sides overlap in the books. Much of the overlap in this book is with The Lost Fleet: Beyond the Frontier: Guardian. For example, if you've read Guardian and want to know why the stealth shuttles and destroyers are out at Varandal this covers it.
I also like how Hemry deals with the political / sociological differences and how the drive both the big picture and the smaller decisions that make up the story. I continue to enjoy the characters and their development, including the romantic interests. While one of the twists at the end of this book is somewhat predictable, it is the final twist / cliff hanger that has left me hoping that Hemry can write and publish the follow on book faster!
