Very good read,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Exodus Towers (The Dire Earth Cycle Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
After reading the first novel in the series I have added Jason Hough to my relatively short list of SF writers that I like. He keeps you engaged all the way through with characters that engage, plots that you can believe in and keep moving at a good pace.
However, as with the first book the book is not self contained and this is just the second installment of a longer story, and consequently stops at a completely arbitrary point. Since I enjoyed the books this wasnt a big problem because I was more than happy to buy the next in the series.
Which brings me to my main gripe. While each of the books is a good read, the promise is that the strange goings on were all part of something that made sense. Sadly once I had finished the final novel I realised that there had been no plan, just random occurences of "strange and awesome alien artifacts".
To be fair there was a big reveal at the end, but for me it simply was not credible and was a big let down.
