Jaxx' supporting characters, from numerous civilizations on other worlds, are a very strong crew, and the plot, while taking sometimes too many twists and turns, is solid in its core: trying to save Good from Evil.
What makes this book sometimes difficult for many of us is the tendency to drop into a foreign language. My humble suggestion is that, having established the there are many different languages, among them Japanese and Alien, Ellis should simply show the dialog, not the foreign languages. Or, as this takes place in the future, fall back upon a Star Trek type of "Universal Translator" device, which allows people of diverse languages to converse without difficulty.
Mya is a fascinating character and I look forward to seeing how she develops – what she’s going to be when she grows up. Drew is an excellent cross between a pot-head and gear-head; there are many other strong characters and as they work their way through Book Four, it will be interesting to see How Ellis ties this up going forward.
I am not sure why a few of our fellow reviewers have chosen to give such low star reviews, even after reading their view of this book. There is a very strong core of both plot and characters, and Brandon Ellis hopefully will bring them together as he gets close to the conclusion.
My fifth star was withheld only due to the language issue, as it brought me up short every time I got to one of those sections. Otherwise, warts and all, this is a very good book.
Atlantis was real, and Ellis brings it to life once more!
Let's get this out of the way first...I didn't like this one as much as the last two. It feels like there are some pieces being set up in this volume which is likely why it feels like the story was so frenetic.
Then again, this is a complaint I have had from the beginning. Each chapter feels like a sharp jerk in a different direction. This is important because there are two primary storylines that occasionally tangent each other, but refuse to connect. It's frustrating, because each of those feels like they belong in their own story, but you are stuck ping-ponging back and forth.
Overall, continue to enjoy the read, and want to see where it goes.
