I'm delighted with all the stories told so far and yet none of them have become stale or predictable. There's always new characters and worlds to explore and a new enemy around the corner. For those who have not read the Ember War I highly recommend you start there you will not be disappointed.
The Terra Nova series did not bite me the same way. I still read 1, 2, and 4.

A whipsaw of last-ditch actions and laugh out loud arse kickings with barely a wasted word keeps the intensity throttle rammed all the way forward.
My only complaint is that the hell of Jared’s existence is underplayed. The authors went for a tone with his culpability in these crimes that I don’t think really fully expressed the total helplessness and deep violation of self that had been inflicted on him, nor the horrors of what might have been inflicted on his family... far beyond the mere threat of death.
I think this was a deliberate choice to NOT derail the genre and leave their readers feeling theyd been tricked into reading a psychological horror, but I also think it cheated the character. I would very much have liked to see him get a detailed, protracted and graphic beatdown of the Emperor, I still feel like there’s a lot of emotional catharsis that needs to happen just for the drama to balance right.
Probably my favourite part is the sense of hope by the end of the book. The series has been long on desperation and stoic endurance, and I am very heartened to see the possibility of the Good Guys getting some truly epic firepower on board.
