I tended to scan read a lot of the battle tactic sections as long winded and technically over my head. I didn't even try pronouncing the nasty aliens' names after the first few, as it wasted time from getting more of the plots to unfold.
One thing I found a bit silly/amusing was the constant initial mention of height in character descriptions. Is the author a bit on the short side?
Unfortunately I feel that Jenetta has now got way too big for her boots, and the stories are just starting to get overblown. The smaller, more intimate stories from early on, and the return to form in Dakistee were much more interesting. Which reminds me, the elephant in the room from the end of Dakistee did not get addressed, and I found that disappointing.
The main character seems to be going though the motions, the alien 'threat' this time seems poorly fleshed out (one of the main strengths of this series for me has been the fact that the 'enemies' perspective has generally featured and has evolved as the story has developed, in this edition its only just touched on), even worse the alien threat lacks any real feeling of menace. Sub plots start and then meander into nothingness or are just abandoned in the middle, and many of the supporting cast of characters just seem to make an appearance for the sake of it.
Certainly the storyline had potential but this time it was poorly executed and delivered. That said I love the series and for those who do I am sure this will be a 'must' read. Hopefully this book is just a blip and the series will get back to its excellent self in the next edition.
out the Kindle, it gave me the opportunity to search for and find some great authors :-)
I can not recall how many thousands of books I have read, though would put Thomas Deprima in my Top FIVE favourite
authors. I am lucky that I am able to return back to a book some months or years later and enjoy the book again.
Prior to reading this book I started at book one through to book eight and then started reading this book I was
concious that I would not sleep until I had finished it.
I note other peoples comments about the content, I however enjoyed the book and look forward to book 10 in due course
and hope that this Saga continues to book 20 and he takes advantage of the opportunities to branch out with small series
involving the other sisters!
Looking forward to the next story.
The main character is now becoming so senior and remote from the fighting that as a vehicle for the story line she should really be retired. Some of the set pieces with the raiders and her big cats etc.. are also becoming very repetitive.
Over all, the author has created a very believable universe but in my humble opinion in promoting his main character so quickly up the space ranks and having them fight so many enemies so coherently and to such finality means actions involving her have to get more spectacular; the knifes edge more sharp; the risk of failure disproportionate; the enemies bigger badder and generally weirder - the death counts ever higher.
Is it value for money? Yes. Will I buy book 10? Not based upon this book alone.
