I've enjoyed reading this entire series.

Personally, I loved the little twist at the end (no spoiler here) and found it a nice touch, though others will surely disagree!

This is the last of the series and as such, one has to expect certain problems and issues from the earlier books to be tidied up - neatly or not - as the stories are closed out. The very issue of cleaning up the loose ends and characters means some clumsiness no matter who the author is or what the overall story is, but I have to say Mr. Buettner handled this pretty darn well. I came away feeling that I had followed the war and the various soldiers' lives and careers from start to a realistic end and I still respected & like (our lead character) Jason Wander - I still wanted to root for him (and JEEB) through the last 25 pages.

Personally, I loved the little twist at the end (no spoiler here) and found it a nice touch, though others will surely disagree! If you haven't read this entire series in order, you must or you'll be lost. One thing I really enjoyed was the fact that the technology for the weapons and equipment grew with each book - we learned about it and discovered it as the characters in the story did, thus the reader grasped the meaning and use of it from page one. Other Sci-Fi stories the tech stuff is sort of assumed or thrown in like magic.

I'll be checking out future offerings from Robert Buettner without fail! Definately glad I read the Orphan series. My husband is busy devouring Orphan's Triumph now.

What a great way to finish up this amazing five-book series. Robert Buettner's characters are easy to get attached to. Its unfortunate that this series has reached its conclusion but I am really looking forward to Buettner's next project, whatever it may be! This book was a great read and almost impossible to put down once you pick it up! The title Triumph is fitting and the ending is worth waiting for! Long live Jason Wander!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Orphan's Triumph is the fifth and final book in the author's "Jason Wander" series. Basically a tale of conflict between the human race and aliens who have attacked and devastated Earth (in the first book). The series has a running theme with Wander as the reluctant hero constantly having to make the last stand against various alien attacks. My description makes it sound typical Starship Troopers fare which does not do justice to a well written and entertaining series. The author hooks you in and delivers an exciting and thoughtful story with a variety of characters that you believe in and have been properly fleshed out. It's a good series and well worth picking up.

Having said that, this is probably the weakest of them all as the author tries to complete Wander's story and provide closure to the conflict. Wander is being retired as earth develops a 'super weapon' that will take out the aliens once and for all. Things get confused as the aliens steal a moon (yes, I wasn't sure about that one either) and Wander has to lead a revolution on a planet that is apparently modelled on WW2 Nazi Germany, concentration camps and all.... It didn't hang together as well as the previous books and the author tries to provide a thoughtful and intelligent ending that I think he has been telegraphing for most of the series.

So it was okay but not spectacular. A series worth picking up, but don't start with this one.

'Nuff said.

Read it, you'll like it--but make sure you read them all in order.

Buettner is a soldier's science fiction writer. Hooahh!

My name is Diego and I am brazilian. I said that so you know how difficult is for me to gather any book writen in english. But to read the orphans series any effort I made is easy game compared to the joy that I felt when I read the last chapter in this book. Awesome! I recommend it with all five stars. And enjoy the ride!

Orphan's Triumph is the fifth and last book of the Jason Wander series. The series started off with Jason Wander as an orphaned, directionless, wayward young man given the choice between jail and the army. The Earth had been attacked by an alien force called "the slugs" and Jason goes off to boot camp and war.

As the series progresses Wander matures into a unique, outside the box thinker that sees him rise to a general and leader in the war against the slugs. As he matures he is given other assignments, such as becoming a diplomat trying to bring newly discovered outlying human colonies into cooperation with the mother planet to protect the human race from extinction. That's not an easy task as these colonies are technologically backward and have developed cultural divisions and hatreds. But Wander succeeds in bringing a modicum of peace and a bit of cooperation.

Orphan's Triumph takes up where Orphan's Alliance leaves off, although Jason now finds himself somewhat more peripheral to the action as an aging general. Colonel Howard Hibble, the eccentric scientist who heads the very secretive group of xenobiologist dedicated to finding new ways to fight the slugs, has been working on a way to find a quick way to the slugs' home world to deliver a final and decisive blow in the war and destroy the slug threat once and for all.

Jason, as he often does, ingratiates himself with those in charge of the operation, and gets himself near the thick of the action. He's not quite done yet.

The first two novels in this series, Orphanage, and Orphan's Destiny were top notch, very entertaining, military science fiction novels. The last two works in this series, Orphan's Journey and Orphan's Alliance, almost seem like filler leading up to this concluding novel.
