Behind Enemy Lines (Book 7 of The Empire of Bones Saga)
Behind Enemy Lines (Book 7 of The Empire of Bones Saga)
Price: £3.88

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Again, 3 May 2017
Another excellent installment, the universe the series operates in continues to get wider and more impressive, the characters are all well developed and the plot line gets ever more interesting.
This installment isn't the most exciting in terms of action but still deserves 5 stars for the plot development it adds.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but....., 15 Mar. 2017
I am big CN fan and greatly enjoy his writing style and various series. While this is a good and enjoyable book and does develop the Angel series further I wasn't actually as impressed as I have been with either the earlier books in this series or some of his empire's corps series. The plot line is a little too predictable from the very early stages of the novel and as a result there just isn't quite as much intrigue or tension as in some of CN's better books. I would give it 3.5 stars if I could, a good series, a good book but not quite up there with his best efforts

4.0 out of 5 stars A good continuation to great series, 4 Mar. 2017
If you enjoyed the series so far this won't disappoint, not the strongest in the series but it develops the storyline and characters further, makes for an enjoyable read and leaves you wanting more.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read, 4 Mar. 2017
Simply great, read it in a day and it was engaging, fast paced and highly enjoyable. An excellent 2nd book of the series from a generally excellent author.

Battlecruiser Alamo: Final Orbit (Battlecruiser Alamo Series Book 22)
Price: £2.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Good ending to the story arc, 27 Dec. 2016
If you like the series you're going to like the ending, and frankly if you've ready the Alamo series until now then you will almost certainly read this edition irrespective of the review.
On the good news front its actually one of the stronger books in the series, with an interesting set of moral dilemas, some genuine questions as to who will make it and it wraps up this particular story arc well.

Well done to RT for keeping the story interesting even after this many volumes

3.0 out of 5 stars Maybe a bit too dark..., 21 Dec. 2016
A very difficult book to review in many ways, while the series overall is well written and mixes character portrayal with action and 'realism', this volume takes and already 'dark' series very much deeper into darkness. Its driving focus on the effects of PTSD on the main character(s) and their spiral into depression and hopelessness and generally the whole tone of the book reflects this with the 'action' taking a back seat.
Is the book well written? yes, is the book an good portrayal of how even 'success' can lead to failure, absolutely. does it develop the characters, very much so.... But if you choose to read space opera/sci-fi for a sense of escapism and fun (while still maintaining believable characters and storylines) then I would suggest that this instalment at least has got the balance wrong.
If it were a film I suspect the critics would love it, but the audience would be very split


The Sacred Stars (The Shadow Space Chronicles Book 4)
The Sacred Stars (The Shadow Space Chronicles Book 4)

5.0 out of 5 stars If you liked the previous books you will greatly enjoy this one, 15 Dec. 2016
If you enjoyed his previous books then you will definitely enjoy this continuation. A bit outside the 'main' storyline it introduces new characters to the mix and some interesting potential side storylines.

Overall heartily recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars A great continuation, 15 Dec. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
DD never fails to impress with the Exodus series, whether it be part of the main series or this spin off. The storyline is moved along nicely the characters are well developed and the book is a great addition to an already great series.

What more can you ask?

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent from start to finish, 15 Dec. 2016
As so many others have said, an excellent end to an excellent series, the characters were likeable, the plot was enjoyable and the balance between action and storyline was well managed.

I hope that we get to see more of the crew in other series going forward, well done to the author for such a well sustained series

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, 3 Nov. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Slightly difficult to review, if taken soley as part of the EC 'universe' then as another reviewer pointed out it adds very little to the overall storyline and only has the most distant links to the universe as a whole.
That said if taken as 'standalone' novel set in the EC universe (as CN says it is) then its not actually a bad novel at all, especially in the current context of the difficulties countries are having accepting and integrating refugees from around the world. The story is even more loaded with CN's political views than normal, but it does work and it is a good read.

Overall recommended as a standalone.
