First the good.
As always it is fast paced adventure, this time a classic siege and rescue storey with lost of in a "will they won't they" moments. Goodies who are really good and baddies who are really bad in the best traditions of Saturday morning kids picture shows.
Now the not so good.
Mr Nuttall seems to be developing a Rape fetish that I find a little unhealthy. The subject seems to crop up on far more pages than I feel the stories need.
We are given to believe that the fallen "Empire" has taken some where between 3 and 5 Thousand years to colonise the Galaxy. so how come they are still using bullet firing rifles, RPG's, IED's, tracked tanks, and helicopters.
Also the political lectures that we are subject to at the head of each chapter and at the end do not endear me to the author or his politics.
No this series is going down hill and needs to have a bit of a rethink. Three stars is generous.
The Indian society that Nuttall's exerts exists and existed all around the world. It could even be argued that it still exists today in the poverty dependent wage slave culture we have today. But the minute you pin it to a culture, place or people it smacks of hypocrisy.
The marines could be seen as oppressors and abusers by another faction on Avalon.
Nuttall's seems to be aware of all this, even his own shortcomings and is brave enough to put something out there that is challenging and makes you think. The characters are constantly questioning their 'right' to take actions and their position to challenge authority.
One of the best plots and a great 'will they make it?' pace that is challenging. Like most of Nuttall's work, nobody wins.
A tale about power and corruption.
I have found in the series, echoes of the Asimov Foundation series, which is what drew me in, but it's been given a unique treatment. Unfortunately, the repeated graphic description of callous manipulation, and sexual and physical abuse of the weak by the strong, and also the constant political lectures which interrupt and pull me out of the action, have finally tried my patience too much. I shan't be buying any more.
