I generally enjoy these books by Thomas DePrima and this was fine too, but if I had an issue it was that the plot was a little thinner than usual, and the ending was left a little hanging. In fact it came to an end rather more suddenly than expected and I was left a bit Hanging. Look, not a bad book, but noting to sh0ut about. If you enjoy TdP Galaxy Unknown series you'll enjoy this one too but not one of the very best of them.

It's taken just over two weeks to read this collection of Jenetta Carver, 'Galaxy Unknown' books. I've missed the January sales and haven't hoovered the house in that time. Fortunately a couple of visiting friends did it three times.
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?

The main story line was well told, with a good build up to the battle at the end, but a number of the sub plots didn't really go anywhere and would have been better left out. These sub plots were often in tiny cut scenes that were way too short, which gave the book a bitty, restless feel that really didn't help it.

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.

Having waited with great anticipation for what I hoped would be another excellent edition to the Galaxy Unknown, I like some of the other reviewers was left a bit disappointed. RaR is not in of itself a bad book, but compared to the high standards the DePrima has led us to expect, it unfortunately just seems like a by the numbers sequel, with no real drive or creativity.
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.

I am 57 years of age, and have been an avid reader for over 50 years. I must admit that when Amazon brought
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!

Although I didn't give this one 5 stars, I still really loved this book. I love the characters and love the addition of Thor to the "family". I would have like to have known more about the latest enemy and what the real purpose of their experiments on the 2 people were for. Hopefully this will be answered?? Also glad to see Jen's mum a bit more in the story too.
Looking forward to the next story.

The "big chair" is pushed out again for Jeantta Carver. Whilst I pretty much read this book in a couple of sittings and the story is good. It seems slightly off pace with the others in the series and dare I say it - almost a contractual obligation. A couple of new enemies one full of bluster the other not explained at all (just very formidable) - I guess book 10 might explain more? Having said that, this is one author I keep on the Kindle and have reread their books a number of times and will undoubtedly re-read them again. Alas - four stars only - too many set pieces and lacking the crispness of the earlier books.

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.
