So, without spoiling it for anyone, I'm more than happy to declare that - in my opinion - Worth has nailed this one. The story of all involved gradually builds to a crescendo and final showdown, and he even chucks in a few surprises along the way which are unusual for the genre. If like me you've devoured the first and second parts, you'll love this from start to finish.
Unlike the other reviewer, I didn't find the story slowed; indeed, I noted with dismay that I was tearing through the book at rate which meant I'd be finished too soon. It's a mark of a great story that you become torn between not wanting it to end, and being desperate to find out what happens.
Nothing else to add really - if you've got the other two, buy this now. If you haven't, get the other two books and get stuck in.
Finally, I'd suggest this trilogy is more than worthy of being printed in paper and sat alongside the works of Banks and Hamilton - along with the de facto cover art.
Dan you certainly are the man, please don't leave it at this, surely there is a 4th book.
Progeny develops three storylines which intermingle throughout the plot. This has the advantage or building up tension as well as providing a good overview of a Galaxy at war. The Author on the whole manages this quite well, with none of the disappointment you find in other books, when you see the next chapter is not about your favourite character.
These stories combine at the end to provide a suitably tense and enjoyable finale. The author is to be commended on providing a conclusion which does not rely upon some `magic' plot device. The ending and story plays out on principles established throughout the trilogy.
The only complaints I have is in the third quarter of the book, a little too much time is spent with supporting characters who are not entirely captivating .
The trilogy does not hide its influences, but what the author has managed to do is provide a richly developed universe, remarkable alien species alongside a wide cast of well-developed characters. Who even at the scale of a Galaxy at war, manage to drive the plot forward with their skills and ambitions and failings.
Can we please have a part 4?
After discovering "Exiles" and devouring its fully fleshed out universe, the interesting characters and the thrilling plot I swiftly moved onto the sequel "Renegades", this was a brilliant continuation of the story with lots of pace, twists and turns to keep me reading. I felt that I was reading the book faster and faster as the story just pulled me in.
I had a wait of a few months for Dan to finish writing "Progeny" the the third (and final?) volume in this story.. but it was well worth the wait. The plot was just as intricate and interesting as the previous two books and as I was speeding through the book I actually felt myself slowing down whilst reading it - as I knew that I was rapidly approaching the end, and I didn't want the story to end. Without spoiling anything I'd just like to say that I thought the conclusion of the plot was very interesting and made sense, something that not all SciFi stories achieve.
The only down side is that now THIS story is over... but hopefully there will many more stories set in this wonderful, vibrant and interesting universe. If you like science-fiction you will love this.. buy it.
And it does not disappoint, the book pulls together the various threads either running or hinted at during the previous books and weaves them into a story that i found exciting and hard to put down (thank god for the kindle android app).
Dan Worths style of writing is easy to read, not heavily laced with unfamiliar tech talk or complicated multi thread discussions between characters that have you flipping back pages to get the context straight, so this series of books would be a great introduction into the world of SciFi for teenagers up.
If i have one criticism it would be that in line with the 'easy to read' comes a slight shallowness in some of the character development, a lack of emotion, but i gave this 5 stars because this criticism does not have any negative impact on the story being told which is majestic and galaxy wide in scope.
At the end of the book all of the existing story threads are brought to conclusion, and just a couple of possibilities are introduced, possibly another story to be told? I hope so.
