One needs to read from beginning of this series of books, to fully appreciate 'Rise of the Kobani', but it is not necessary to do so,as the storyline ' goes back ' to include necessary reference from previous books in series. As with the other books in this series some are slow to begin with , but story line strengthens very quickly and one becomes 'glued' to the story. I am looking forward to next release in series, which i believe is due out soon. For those into sci-if books, this is a very well written series of books and the author is to be congratulated on his creation of characters and presentation of a very strong story line.
Continuing the story... Can't wait for the next book.. That should give you some idea of what I think. Great story good or better characters depth to both and twists to keep you intrigued... When you want to teach the protagonists a lesson the author is so much better and keeps you going and wanting more, more, more.. The Grumpy One.
I quite enjoyed book three of this wonderful series. There's plenty of action, adventure and excitement. I also liked the fact that a lot of science is mixed in with the fiction. Plus, I find the premise behind the stories very interesting. I don't like spoilers, so I say read this series for yourself to find out what it is. I don't think you will be disappointed.
