4.0 out of 5 stars More of the same from Saxon Andrew 8 April 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is the 27th book by Saxon Andrew that I have read. If this one would have been among the first ten or so I would probably have rated it higher but I cannot help feeling a certain “fatigue” over the fact that, after a while, the books in every new book series that Saxon Andrew launches starts to feel pretty much the same. After a while they grow to universe wide space operas where star systems and even galaxies are destroyed at the snap of ones fingers and the only distinction between who is doing what is what color the ships have.

This is still a quite good young adult book but the author seems to be a bit locked into the same formula. I agree that you should not change a winning formula but after 27 books one could debate whether it is a winning one any more. As you can see I am getting a bit doubtful at least.

Anyway, Star Rover – Chosen to Die, is the final chapter in the Lens of Time series. It builds up to a good climax and a good end to the series. As usual the book is a lot of heroes in shining armor (well not literally but…) against the bad guys. As usual not all the bad guys end up being the bad guys in the end. Not surprisingly the book is very much young adult in its style and thus the story, the characters etc. are quite simple.

The book builds up to what I would have considered a somewhat tragic but quite adequate ending. I was therefore rather surprised when it continued for several chapters and, in the end, ended rather differently. During these last chapters the author tied back to events and characters of the earlier books. I cannot really write in much detail about what happened without really spoiling the ending although I can say that the author used a rather simple trick, one that I normally would not really be too thrilled about, which turned out to work rather well in this particular book.

Bottom line is that it was an enjoyable read but, due to the repetitiveness of his books, I think that I have had my quota of Saxon Andrew filled for a while.
5.0 out of 5 stars Three Surprises 1 April 2014
By J.Z. Watkins - Published on Amazon.com

It has been a very long time since I made it to the end of a book with a smile on my face and my eyes wet with a happy and good feeling. The author did an outstanding job with the ending, the journey was a bit rough, some very unexpected twist and turns and for the second half of the story I was actually thinking of the title to a review, 'Rooted for the Bad Guys'. It was a roller coaster ride that was unlike most of the current series of books of Mr. Andrews that I've read.

I'll go ahead and say spoiler alert, even though I think I will be vague or they will be minor. Spoilers by implication or if you have read this series up to now and use to a few others, its more in the line of familiar themes. That said, we're off.

It started out delving into action and the introduction to what I presumed were the main antagonist, they fit the role well enough, paranoia, xenophobia and of course the nearly signature most horrific trait in an Andrew series, they eat intelligent beings.

I do have to applaud Mr. Andrew for the delicate way he wrote to demonstrate that last trait, he presented it in a fashion that the squeamish would get the idea of what was happening, yet if they are sensitive to such scenes, it was not detailed so it could just be seen and then moved on with the story. Unlike many authors who take a moment out to show how bad the antagonist is, and feel the need to continue to present such horrific moments, this one scene is it. Its mentioned, and implied elsewhere, but it doesn't beat the reader over the head with having to show just how bad the bad guys are.

That said came my first surprise, which colored my outlook for most of the story, came when some of the protagonist seem to actually approve of what the antagonist were doing. While I was absolutely horrified, I was also impressed with how Mr. Andrew presented the discussion in an intelligent manner so that it was plausible why some of the protagonist might just think it was okay for the victims to be eaten.

Surprise number two came later on in the series when we find out that there is a second antagonist. Yet the surprise was not the turn of the story that appeared to be another enemy of my enemy, which given the earlier discussion I thought that was where it was going. Instead the surprise, for me, was that this new enemy was one I found I could root for. This was not because of what they believed or how they went about it, no, they were definitely antagonist if only for how they went about their acts. I felt like rooting for them because of their motivation. Mr. Andrew also provided several scenes where one could sympathize with them even though how they went about their goals were deplorable. It was because they felt they were doing something right. It was presented in a warm and touching manner that had me feeling the protagonist were the cold and heartless monsters. Let me stress that these antagonist are -antagonist-, make no mistake there, they are in the wrong, but their heart was in the right place.

That was something I felt was missing from this series for a number of books.

Since the early days of Chris and the gang, when they were concerned about doing the right thing over survival or probably in addition to survival, their descendents seemed for books to just be concerned with survival. Living that way in real life, I know there is more to life than survival and it was one reason I just fell in love with Mr. Andrew's series, when his heroes seem to echo that do what is right approach, and not just be out to survive for the next day.

Surprise number three was also a very pleasant one when the book series went back to its roots with the subject of time. It didn't remain yet another space fleet fight story with preparations against the enemy took up most of the story. And when it did come to fleet fights by this point, it was a massive and epic one. Yet I still felt more sympathy for the second antagonist than I did for the protagonist. At this point I almost wanted the bad guys to win, even though the losses on the side of 'good' were heart felt and very personal to the 'heroes' and there were more than a few touching moments.

Once time travel entered the equation, it had some delightful twist, which by the end of the story, had me smiling with an uplifting feel good feeling that otherwise I would not have given this book 5 stars. Those stars were for the end, the journey was a bit rough and more a 3 star voyage than the 5 star ending.

That said, the 5 star ending was worth the 3 star journey. I hope others will find it the same or have a 5 star journey all the way through the book to its finished.

Even now, thinking back to that end, it puts the smile back on my face. Thank you Mr. Andrew for writing this.
5.0 out of 5 stars Normally I Would Post a Review within hours.Not ableto do so this time. 22 April 2014

Saxon has become my favorite author. As far as I can tell he is on par with Norton Smith Heinlein DeCamp so many of the greats. I was able to buy this book the day it came out.
Problem was I was having a terrible time trying to read. I happen to be a real rocket scientist. Although most of my rockets are limited to 20 foot in length. Every once in a while problems can come up.
This time those problems cost me my left hand and my right eye. So hopefully they're going to make a cyborg out of me. Still in this day and age who knows. They have almost fixed my eye, but are doing a
lot more tests about putting a mechanical hand on the left side. Now for the book. Just wanted seems as though everything is lost. Up jumps relativity. Then you know the rest.
I for one will never complain about a good ending. Especially when it all comes out of left field. That is what makes these books by Saxon Andrew such a great read.
Thanks again SA

5.0 out of 5 stars Lens of Time series was an experience I completely loved. 5 April 2014
By Al Barrera - Published on Amazon.com

There is so much I want to say about Chosen to Die and the Lens of Time series that I find myself at a loss of words... almost.

The Lens of Time has taken me through a wonderful journey of adventure and emotional roller-coaster unlike very few others have been able to do.

I have never had a book make me react emotionally in such a way that it made me laugh or cry out loud publicly. I had that happen from the first book - Pyramid Builders - Lens of Time

Thank you for this amazing experience. I wholeheartedly recommend the Lens of Time series for anyone who would appreciates a great story that will leave them glad to have gone through it and met these wonderful characters.
