The cast and world building are well established so a significant portion of the book is dedicated to advancing the character plots which are ongoing. I love this aspect of the series and to some degree, this has been the drawcard that keeps me reading. The plots are always entangled in politics, but also the complexity of the Coldi race that Corry has adopted as his family. This is what provides the story tension and it is done well.
The plot for Ambassador 8 was a little lacklustre. There was a story problem, but no sense of urgency. No apparent cost of failure if team Corry failed to find the missing academic. No apparent need to stop the academic or those he works for doing what they’re doing. Because of this, there was no moment where all was lost and thus no emotional payoff. Added to this is that some aspects of the story are not overly plausible. For example: Coldi people who were created for an extremely hot environment surviving a sub-zero climate with no apparent problems. Wild animals being ridden as if they were domesticated. The issue of being stranded with an inoperable shuttle suddenly becoming a no thing.
Having said that I’m invested in the series and I will continue reading.
