There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The familiar characters are back and are as likable as before. Of course there are a bunch of not so likable characters as well. I do still like the space action which is better than in a lot of books that I have read. I honestly do not understand why there seams to be a slouch of bad reviews (on Goodreads) on this particular book since to me it is more or less a logical continuation of the first one.
Yes, the ending did throw in quite a bit of a twist but, come one, it was a wee bit surprising and had an interesting twist to it, but it was not really that unexpected not that outrageous. Actually, I quite liked the ending. I do dislike the reviews that just post a silly picture with now explanation whatsoever as to why the book was bad though. That is not a review so why bother?
Anyway, I quite liked this book. It is good military science fiction as well as space opera. I could be without a lot of the political nonsense but then I have a particular distaste for that so my view on that is probably not aligning with everyone’s. Still I would say that it is a pretty good, not too heavy adventure story.
The author picks up right where he left off with the aging space ship, the humans continue to try and understand the alien attack, internal politics, and he continues to get you into the minds of his characters that makes you feel like you are right in the middle of the action. Similar to the first novel, I appreciate how the futuristic technology isn’t described in a way to overwhelm you – the average Joe can wrap his arms around it.
If you enjoyed the first book in the series I believe you will enjoy this one more. Now, I'm off to read the third book in the series...
