For newbies, I still recommend starting with Star Nomad which is first in the series. Don't worry, while open ended it's not a cliff hanger but it will give you a taste of the crazy Firefly-Star Wars symbiosis that is the Fallen Empire series. Warning though: I pretty much guarantee that if the prior sentence intrigued you at all then you will get addicted to this series.
For those who are fellow addicts well, all I can say is that I just bought this and read it in one sitting - but it's now 2:47 am (which I'm going to regret when the alarm goes off in now less than 4 hours as it's a work day), so that whole "one sitting" thing only means that, yes, this holds up to the high standard of the other books.
I will bottom line this: great series, great last book, super-highly enjoyable with the HEA conclusion desired (which leaves room for more even though answering all that need to be answered), and most definitely (and highly) recommended.
I read a lot (a scary amount of) books as there are so many that are free or super cheap on kindle. Even avoiding those that are crap, the vast bulk of indie books are at best fun but not fantastic. Then once in a while you hit a gen of an author who is as good as - or better than - the best of those who have books published by the big publishing houses. Lindsay Buroker is one of those few gems. I first discovered her in her Emperor's Edge steam punk series (an excellent read, by the way: the first of which is free on kindle), and I've been hooked on all of her books ever since. That's a rarity for me as almost every other author has at least one book I've not enjoyed. I'm really happy that Buroker held up to her high standard through to the end of the Fallen Empire series and a bit bittersweet that's it's now over (only mitigated by the "secon epilogue" of End Game that the author makes available via her website, which I will undoubtedly read tomorrow).
A near final comment: regarding the 4 stars ranking - note that I am really chintzy on giving out stars. To me 4 stars means a book is really (truly, absolutely) good. I only give out 5 stars to things like LoTR, the original Dragonriders books, Dune and the like. I suspect most other readers will give this 5 stars. I just have this (perhaps unfair) quirk that holds me back.
Finally, no disclaimer: I've purchased all the books in the series. Not that I actually think that makes any difference at all, as I know I've never been influenced by whether or not I paid, but what the heck, I might as well get something for shelling out the cash.
Anywho. As far as Alisa goes, getting her daughter back is only the first step. Jelena is wary of Leonidas and not ready to see her mom canoodling with someone other than her dad. Alisa isn't thrilled with some of the Starseers aboard and is battling mom-guilt as she tries to reconnect with her daughter.
Plus, there's the constant danger the Nomad seems to end up in. Alisa certainly has a knack for being in the middle of things as they blow up around them.
Seriously, I'm going to miss these guys. They're snarky and a little crazed and there's never a dull moment with this crew. From what I can see, there are plenty more adventures waiting for a pilot who doesn't understand the word no and a cyborg who now has the universe at his fingertips.
(And, yes, I will ABSOLUTELY be reading the spin-off series.)
