It starts off with captain John Roberts having a serious breakdown (and I mean serious). I was not to thrilled by that but I could live with it. However, after a breakdown of that magnitude there is no way that a person can be back, not to mention sitting in the captains chair of a starship, in a couple of weeks or even a month.
Naturally the book leads up to a major battle with the Screen. I quite enjoyed that part of course since space ships slugging it out is my favorite kind of Science Fiction. This part was over quite quickly though. The Screen are more or less done and dealt with after a little more than half the book. I felt the entire home coming and defeat of the Screen was somewhat rushed.
The rest of the book mostly consists of aftermath talks, some fairly uninteresting murder story is added, some political stuff about the mutes and then the Io are brought back and used to generate a kind of cliffhanger or hook that could be used to continue the universe with a new book series. Quite frankly I felt that the real story was very short and that the book was kind of padded up to fill a certain number of pages.
As I said, I did like the book and would certainly recommend it as a good read but I did indeed have higher expectations for it.
The writer though, is more interested in keeping new incidents coming at you rather than taking the time and hard work to develop where we already are. Its like, "ok that was fun, what can I throw at the crew next". Continuation just for the sake of keeping the reader does not make a good book.
It is to me like these books are an outline that a professional would revisit, expand and make worthy. Perhaps he is hoping for screen writers to do that.
I was very disappointed and felt the book was written by a totally different author, the style was similar but the plot lines built up to nothing, none of the issues really resolved with any finality.
If you have read the first three you will need to read this one, you just have to, however expect to be disappointed on how it ends, leaves you disliking the book and wondering what just happened to the story you were reading :(
