Continuing the pace of the last novel, this significantly ramped up the action / battle scenes and the humans and their new Alliance really take it to the Kleese. It was refreshing to see the Alliance forces take the battle to the Kleese which was a welcome change of pace. The author has grown a bit as a writer and this book is well-edited.
As usual, there was yet another cliffhanger ending but the stage has been set for the Alliance to punch it to the bad Kleese vs. being reactionary. Unlike other space operas that may have worn out their welcome after a few books, I'm ready for the next episode.
I picked this up for $3.99 here in the Kindle store: if you've enjoyed the series so far, you'll certainly get a heck of a lot more than $3.99 of entertainment value in this installment.
I only have one "negative" comment, which is that, since I'm coming to the end of the last series of books he has written, I wish he would write them faster so I could have many more to look forward to reading! Thank you, Mr. Weil, for being a very creative and enjoyable author!
The humans is, as before in this series, the underdog. But as everyone knows, dogs do bite and this particular dog is not exactly the upper class Geneva house wife's little pet dog. This is the kind of dog that makes you believe in a few of those fairy tales about things that go bump in the night.
There is a lot of action going on this book and, as usual when it comes to this book series, the action is quite well done. It might not have the adherence to physical science and "exactness" as some authors but then I do not think this author aspires to achieve that. I am reading Jack Campbell's Leviathan right know and the way things play out in space is truly different.
Now, if the Mr. Weil reads this, please do not change anything and do not try to mimic another author. The way the action plays out may be different but it is still great and it would be a shame if every book was the same. I have read pretty all of the books by Raymond L. Weil and I have quite liked almost all of them. This one is no exception.
Back to the story. This book is basically a split between three sub-story lines. The strive to hit the Kleese, or rather the Zaltule, the struggles of the Marines seized by the Zaltule in the beginning of the book and the poltical machinations between the Kleeze and the Zaltules themselves.
The end result is a very enjoyable read. One thing that I do like about this book is that though some political obstacles are mentioned the political bulls*** is kept to a minimum. There is really no political a--holes throwing wrenches in the machinery all the time and the people doing the gritty work that needs to be done are, for the most part, supported. No soap opera style politics and this, to me, is a great plus.
The book blurb might give the impression that this the all or nothing operation and that this would be the end. Either the humans, and the rest of the galaxy, wins or they fail and that is it. Well, that is a slight exaggeration. Having said that, everything that goes down is of a rather high importance to the survival of the human race.
Bottom line, I am rather looking forward to the next book in this series.
