This is a prime example of a writer who has a strong collection of work, but who, for reasons perhaps of pressure from publishers, throws out a subpar product. Kind of like musicians who face pressure from their recording companies to produce hot records each time. Unfortunately, the muse is occasionally silent.
I consider this a throwaway series. It isn't up to Forrest's usual quality, not in the writing, in the premise, or in the voices of her characters.
Modern Science Fiction is not an easy genre to write convincingly in. Forrest excels at dystopian literature. She should really write what she writes best, and leave the Science Fiction to those who know how to do it, like Lindsey Buroker, who writes extremely well in SciFi, Steampunk and Fantasy, and all the other contemporary writers who create amazing and addicting worlds for us to roam around in.
I won't stop sampling Forrest's work, because when she hits one out of the ballpark, she hits it into the stratosphere. But, it means that I'll just try a sample next time, before I actually make that buy.
The reviews range from "long and drawn out" to " fantastic".
I would have to say I'm leaning towards fantastic. There might have been a slight lull by book 5 or 6 but I hung in there, eagerly purchasing each sequel and reading into the wee hours many nights. I enjoyed getting to know the characters and following their journeys. This last mission really got me thinking about strong female leading characters and female heroines. The overarching themes of compassion and embracing diversity are so appropriate for today's society. I will be thinking about these characters for days to come.
