As a Professional Engineer with a heavy manufacturing, R&D, electromagnetic (RF), and nuclear and electrical power background, I can sometimes be overly critical, but I've found AMP to be very entertaining and the science and technology plausible. The story in AMP had me fully immersed, and I thoroughly enjoyed the read.
I'm just sorry that it came to an end, but my wife will be happy, mo more 3 or 4 am. reading or LAMO in the middle of the night!
sorry Hon, but there were some real funny puns that made the series a little more human and realistic. Hope other Sci-Fi readers love it as much as I have. I recommend you start with 1 thru 8 AMP to get the big picture. I don't think you'll be sorry.
Here are a few examples:
1) Don Grange and Frig could travel millions of light years away to destroy thousands of enemy ships and return back to where they started yet only a sentence or two were employed to describe the event.
2) The advantage between the Humans and the Duke’s forces see sawed back and forth more like that of a pair of heavyweight boxers than what would be expected out of a battle on the scale of the finale being fought in AMP 8.
3) I was also amazed at the volume of fighters and battle ships the Duke could muster. A million here and another million there with nothing more than a mention just seemed like more than my brain could process without the exhaustive details the author usually provides.
After a few of these were stacked in quick succession I lost track of the action and found myself getting disengaged from the story and trying to mentally map what was going on. Bringing a series to a proper ending can be a challenge and I think that a simpler, less over the top and chaotic ending with more detail may have provided a better read.
With that said I have to commend the author on the continued use of new ideas in space warfare. The introduction of the cube formation that brings a series of space ships into geometric formation and effectively bowls over the enemy was unexpected. The banter between Grange and the Duke served to make the already unlikable droid even more irritating and his demise all the more anticipated. The author again left the door open for the Duke to return in the future and also scored some points with me when he found a creative way to reintroduce Frost back into the story after what seemed to be certain death in an earlier battle. Overall I found AMP 8 to be entertaining and well worth the read. It takes a keen focus through the chaos but you will be rewarded in the end; a solid 4 of 5 this time. I’ve already purchased the first two books in the author’s next series called OMEGA and look forward to enjoying those as well.
What a wild ride this book was with plot twists around every corner.. Stephen Arsenault took science and fiction, and blended them together so masterfully that I truly believe not only is he the best up and coming sci-fi writer of this day and age, but I dare say all the other great sci-fi writers would enjoy his stories themselves. He did a superb job in giving this series the wonderful ending it so richly deserved...yet I wish so much that the series still had several books left to write and read.
I truly hope this wonderful story sees the big screen one day, as long as they can keep the story line accurate and the integrity of the series intact.
Now I await with great anticipation the beginning of his next series. The only thing I would have asked him to change in AMP 8 is that he give us a glimpse of his next book. You have spoiled me, Mr. Arsenault. Please do always give us a taste of the next upcoming book.
And still, I have to voice my continuing complaint about the somewhat poor editing and story continuity of the published novel. These books, as well as many other self published authors, are rather poorly edited and story continuity has a lot to be desired. I do give this author great credit for his very original and creative storyline, but if you are going to call yourself a professional writer, your finished product needs to reflect a professional effort in all areas of publication.... Just my opinion, but it is your job to make it a good product for your readers....
