After being slightly critical of the first book, the entire trilogy has got me hooked!
on 16 July 2015
I had initially given the first book in this series a four-star rating. I felt that there were some issues with the characters and that the book felt a little abrupt. Now having finished the trilogy, I am happy to admit that my initial feelings may have been a little premature. Every single issue I had with the first book was taken care of during the trilogy. Characters became real and had depth, whilst the books actually started feeling like a trilogy and not like a single book cut into three.
Having enjoyed this trilogy so much, I had to give it five-stars. Only the fourth author next to Tom Clancy, George RR Martin and Terry Prachett who has managed to tickle that out of a highly critical reader. As I always endeavour to write a fair and objective review, I think five stars speak for themselves in this case.
Well worth buying. I think it has elements for all fans of sci-fi, adventure, fantasy and military books. With that said, I think this trilogy is strong enough to impress nearly anyone who is willing to give it a whirl. The getting a book to the reader being the issue with this book, personally I didn't find the cover attractive (yes, I do choose by covers when browsing), but the free first book gives absolutely nobody a reason not to try. If you like that one, I would recommend going all out and purchasing the full trilogy as I did in this case.
Value for money, riveting, fun and can make you drift off into a different world. Excellent. I'm hopeful the next trilogy in the series will be just as enjoyable, I will review it when I am done.
Please see my review of the first book - First Contact - to see my initial misgivings. I believe in updating and not changing as my initial review is still fair, it was just as I felt when I had completed the first book. The author managed to convince me that I was in error the first time around only giving four stars as in honesty, this trilogy just needs to be read as a whole piece of work to really comprehend how much of a masterpiece it is. For self published, wow, best I have come across yet and surprised that it is in fact self published.
