Overall, this is a solid continuation of a beloved series, with enough new characters to keep things interesting. More please.
I love the relationship between Riggs and the various alien allies that he builds up, and Marvin is certainly my favorite character. Marvin's confession near the end of the book made me guffaw with laughter.
The whole Star Force series is simple, marvelous SF fun. Highly recommended reading.
My suggestion to the authors for the next book:
I wonder what the relationship between Riggs and the familiar civilization he discovered will be? I hope it is different to both his engagement with the Raptors as well as being different to his father's relationship with earth...
I found Marvin to be a significantly looser cannon that he normally is. He went off the rails more and was less cooperative than normal. This to me seemed out of character. Either they're trying to set up something to be revealed later or they've taken a major departure with him. Overall it did not detract too much from the main story but was a bit annoying.
What did detract from the story was the fact that a very short while after Sokolov was brought on board he was able to take control of Cody's ship. I found it hard to believe that he could accomplish so much in such a short amount of time. I like that he was brought back in having been taken out of the picture by Kyle/Alamo but him taking the ship so fast bordered on shattering my suspension of disbelief. I can buy into it a little but it needs further explaining.
Bringing the Macros back might have been a bad move. They were the focus for so long that they shouldn't really be allowed back in for a long while. And they way it ended, they're threat still remains. I guess we'll see.
Okay, having said all that I still feel that this was the best book in the Series. The Slab and the metal planet alone were beyond fascinating and beyond cool. The cliff hanger at the end really pushed the book up an extra notch or two, without that I would have given it 3 or 4 stars. And Marvin did come up with a faster than light comm system.
If you haven't read this series you are missing out on one of the best Sci-Fi stories ever. On par with Kevin J. Anderson's Saga of Seven Suns and Star Wars and Star Trek.
Of course nothing can ever beat Star Wars or Star Trek, but these come very close.
However overall I am still excited for the series. This book has really set up some interesting set pieces for the future. I always enjoy getting to meet new races and planets. The next book should be great with all the new races coming into play.
Cody seems to break the mold here. I don't feel like he is just his father, version 2.0 anymore. He is his own character. I would like to see more traits from his mother in him though. The crew is really coming into their own. And the alien races are great.
One thing that still bothers me is the lack of credit Marvin gets. He is still treated much like a slave or typical robot when he is deserving of much more. A novella about Marvin is due.
I don't give it five stars because the author didn't create a new lead character. He cloned Kyle with Cody. For those of us who have boys in their twenties, Cody Riggs' character is not believable; he's too smart, strong, and experienced. If the character was 40+ years old with real life experience, it would be easier to buy into.
