About the Author
I reside in Central Florida with the wife and two daughters. After thirty years in engineering, my time is now spent chronicling the adventures of fictitious heroes. They are off-world, fighting the good fight, keeping Man alive. For some it was meant to be their calling. For others... not so much. All however are willing to fight until the end. Flip open one of my books. Tag along as unlikely heroes try to conquer the galaxy or save all humanity. Get aboard as you're either with us or against us. This may be your ticket out of here... at least for a short while. Hope you have a great day!

Aaaaaand more of the same. This installment is actually pretty boringly predictable. Now there's even MORE bad guys controlling the poor slaved bad guys (as always)... Arsenault is just locked into his pattern again. It seems to do a great job of wrapping up the series at the end (well, at least an adequate job) and you breathe a sigh of relief that it's finally just done... and then you read the beginning of the NEXT volume. I don't know if I can sit through yet another book that is nearly identical to every other book he writes. Read this, sure, and you'll be like "oh good, I've got closure, everybody's defeated, the logistics work out, we've discovered macguffin technologies and are awesome, woot!" and then find something else to read.
So we're fighting the Denzees and the Earthers. We're picking up new weapons, and we're trying to protect ourselves from turncoats or whatever. We keep putting together plans that suddenly turn very sour. The Domers keep vacillating, and getting in the way. The Emperor keeps working his deals. Suddenly, here come the Hoyas. We finally get the Domers working the right direction, kinda. Well, maybe not really. At least the Denzees help us out a bit so that our ship production can finally get off the ground, but wait, there's more.
All in all a good wrap-up to this part of the series. As promised, NO CLIFFHANGER! A new character introduced with a number of twists, turns and surprises. A few characters made to depart from the group. We'll see if they come back or are replaced with new characters. Stephen Arsenault continues to provide hours of entertaining reading. I like the way he provides incentives to his followers to buy his books .
The first Stephen Arseneault books I read were the HADRON series, which I loved. After HADRON, I was afraid I was going to be let down by ARMS, but I love ARMS at least as much as HADRON - maybe even a little more. Stephen Arseneault writes with the perfect ratio of humor to drama and is a master at escalating to evermore challenging antagonists while maintaining believe-ability and suspense. In ARMS, he's created another multi-novel story that has kept me entertained and enraptured.
