They say these are like Patrick O'Brien's books . . . I don't know, I have 3 of those staring down at me as I type this and I haven't got past page 100 in the first book, I find them so hard going . . .
Anyway back to the book, plots and sub-plots are interwoven, we learn more about Max and his flaws and a bit more about Bram the doc, but not a lot more. We also learn a bit more about the other main characters and are introduced to some more and their characters.
It's good for once that the "alien" cultures often have superior technology and Honsinger has done well in weaving them into the story, ensuring that a one size doesn't fit all and they retain their distinctive cultures as do other human factions.
As usual I'm not trying to spoil the story - read and devour, digest at leisure - 500 pages for £1 - what a bargain promo Amazon! - even £3 wouldn't be too much.
The only think I would suggest is that a story this long could be split into 2 parts and the ending . . . for a while I thought it should be at the start of book , but I'm still confused about the best presentation . . . perhaps a part 3 and some extra filler to link it to part 2?
Anyway can we have the next book please and can you get started with the new series?
The characters themselves were (in my opinion) likeable and beliveable especially the doctor. The action scenes were also enjoyable and the tactics Beliveable.
What I loved most about this book however was the Vaaach. No spoilers just read the books and find out. Well the Vaaach and Horneymeyer.
That sounds a bit shallow but in reality the book draws on real history, naval battles and manoeuvres from both world wars etc. So is really captivating. Read it.... It's good
.... so, I look forward to further reading in this series as it seems highly likely there will be more...fingers crossed.
Thanks for the stories Paul, don't like facebook so can't comment there but hopefuly you will read this, take a look at Admiral Cohrane - the greatest sailor ever, grand admiral of three countries, defeated more French ships, and possibly more adversary ships than any sailor in history - made Nelson look like he was slacking and tied down more enemy (French) soldiers than any other other force of its size. A superb tactician and startegists and litle is written or generally known about him. And you thought John Paul Jones could fight!!!!
5 stars because it is fantastic.

Not bad, but not particularly great either. Action packed but suffers from a case of untouchable author-protagonist.Published 14 months ago by Kindle Customer
