My comments really cover the whole series, not just the last episode. It had everything, a struggling band of flawed heroes fighting impossible odds, implacable enemies, a race against time, system spanning battles involving weapons of super science... There are clear influences from other works including some of my personal favourites such as E. E. Smith's Lensman series and Christopher Rowley's Starhammer books all of which I feel Vaughn Heppner has paid homage to.
I have no hesitation on recommending the Doomstar series to anyone who enjoys a good ripping yarn.
My only criticism SPOILER ALERT
I sort of hoped Osadar would meet up with Captain Mune, she deserves a break.
The adventures of Marten Kluge in a brutal, dark and unforgiving Solar System is a great ride, with the will to never give up the fight, no matter how hopeless the situation seems to be, a continuous theme. Some great bits of tech and facts & figures in there, although not too much that it descends into techno-babble. Plus, it's a damn good story to boot. I really cared about Marten and his fate, despised the arrogant Highborn and shuddered at the inhuman Cyborg hordes.
One criticism, and I hesitate to call it that, (perhaps a minor quibble) is that although the tale ends in a satisfying conclusion, it felt a little compressed and hurried. To be honest though, that may just be because I didn't want it to to end.
All in all, absolutely great stuff, and a superb bit of escapism.
Unfortunately, i am having trouble finding another author in this genre that tells a story with the correct balance of character description, science, realism and emotion that Heppner manages.
I think i will read his other series now before going back to space sci-fi.
Read the Doom Star series. Well worth it!
For reference my normal authors are King, Herbert, Koontz, Pratchett, Coonts, Patterson etc etc

Very disappointed with this last book of the doom start series. It's as if the author could not be bothered to finish it, so just ended the storyline on a very unconvincing... Read morePublished on 4 Jan. 2015 by Amazon Customer
Centered around one Martin Kluge- facing off ideologies, super humans, cyborgs.
