In this installment, we pick up after the battle at Ashwood Estates, and find out just what exactly Malcolm Goode was up to after he got left behind to research the Mogadorians. It's not long before he's wisked away by secret service agents to a classified facility beneath Washington DC...and an all too important meeting with the President of the U.S.
Up until this point, Sam's father has been a bit of an enigma, considering that he was under Mog imprisonment for a great chunk of the series, and even when he was finally rescued, there was only so much information he could give, since much of his memories were tampered with. So going into this short story, I was expecting to finally learn more about the first Greeter to the Loric. But since he can't really remember much, what we get instead is him bouncing from one secret facility to the next, all while constantly worrying about his son's safety. So really, the most insight we get into his character is why he'd let Sam go on ahead with John Smith and company into a literal war zone. It's a hard decision for him to make, but he loves his child enough to trust that Sam is in good hands and can take care of himself.
The story itself, however, can arguably be skipped. The most we get out of the plot is just seeing a bunch of government officials running around, debating over how they should go about attacking the Mogadorians, and everything that's discussed is stuff that we, the audience, already know. Anyone expecting a ton of action will find it mostly in the first half. The second half just revolves around all the characters standing around, talking. Not that it's boring, but it doesn't really offer anything new, either.
As time's gone on, these mini novels are pretty much required reading now, as they've been revealing more information that's super important to the main story arc. This one, however, is the only one so far that reads more like an interesting footnote than anything particularly significant to the main plot. Here's to hoping that "Hunt for the Garde" and "United as One", is a bit more exciting.
