I was engaged enough to read all seven of the books currently published. Similar to Doug Dandridge's Exodus series a war with an overwhelming enemy and unfortunately also a never ending story. I am a bit OCD and hate series that do not end, or at least each story is complete in itself.
This series follows history as descendents of a galactic empire come back into contact with the forces which overthrew the original Empire. The author takes several side plots as he develops the war. Hopefully he will actually bring the war to some conclusion soon as I hate unfinished stories.
A bastard emperors son who just wants to do his duty to the Empire, a spoiled princess, a conniving emperors' son who fears the bastard is after his future throne, evil computers with mind controlled people, a beautiful princess from another space kingdom, space battles and technology breakthroughs, ...this series includes almost every cliché possible. But they are clichés because they work. This is a fun fast paced series. You should read in order to get the most out each character. But don't expect great literature, just fun. Although I think you could pick up almost any of the books and read them independently. The series starts out slow as borderline three to four star but gets better. The series as a whole is a solid four stars.
As the disasters pile up, Kelsey and Jared fight desperately to get on the same page with Breckenridge. The consequences are more dire than the Captain's fragile ego. An error here could spell disaster for their new found allies. If their new allies fall, it will only be a matter of time before the Rebel Empire finds their home.
Terry Mixon dazzles us with his continuing Empire of Bones saga. More secrets of the Old Empire are revealed, and more hints about how it fell come to light. A wonderful story for space opera fans.
Commander Jared and Princess Kelsey continue their effort towards getting back home at the same time as they try to disrupt the enemies efforts. As with the other books new discoveries are made and there are of course more fighting going on.
However, their successes are severely hampered with the arrival of Captain Breckenridge. I have to say that Captain Breckenridge dragged down the book somewhat for me. He is so absolutely over the top that it becomes just ridiculous. His stupidity, egoism, bigoted worldview and utter lack of any competence or redeeming qualities whatsoever makes him not only ludicrous and annoying but also utterly unrealistic. I'm sure this person would really not be able to tie his own shoes let alone command anything, not even a garbage transport. There is no way in hell this person could have been given command of anything in a more realistic setting despite his powerful connections.
Naturally Captain Breckenridge not only disobeys lawful orders from the Princess, refuses to follow the agreed on plan but manages to utterly screw up, in a way that is almost laughable, at the worst possible moment causing the loss of the overall target objective as well as thousands of his own crew's lives. Fortunately his incompetence manages to screw him up himself after having screwed up everything else. Unfortunately it now falls on our heroes to save his bacon if for nothing else than to put him in front of a court marshal.
Having said that the book was still a quite enjoyable read and it was really sad that the author went so over the top in the portrayal of Captain Breckenridge.
By Terry Mixon
Genre: Science Fiction
Command Decisions continues to take Kelsey Bandar and Jared Mertz through new challenges. They’re faced with dealing with a haughty Captain who is commanding a fleet of ships as well as new trouble from the Old Empire and the AI that controls it.
One of the marks of a good story is that the author can make you care about and worry about the characters. Terry Mixon has done that in all of the Empire of Bones novels so far. When the book ended all I could do was go buy the next one. To avoid spoiling the surprises, I won’t say much more except, if you’ve read the first two, you should be reading this one. And if you haven’t read the first two and you’re a fan of science fiction or a good adventure, you should be reading them now.
