The writing was superb, but I was held back from fully appreciating it due to a lack of character development in the beginning of the book. That development evidently took place in book one of the series. Verbal intercourse between the first two characters who were introduced in the book began to fill in some of the background. One third of the way into the book, the story started to gel and carry my interest.
While the first book was apparently about raiding ancient alien caches of futuristic items, the Ion Raider dove into the reason that those caches exits. Evidently, they were not left behind by the ancients out of generosity to future races, but were left as tools for the those that remained behind. As the book finished, we’re left to ponder; what are these aliens’ and their human followers’ plans for humanity.
The Ion Raider is not a complete story as its characters were not developed and it ended in a cliff hanger that speaks loudly of the need to read the next book in the series. Therefore, make sure and read Pelquin's Comet, book one in The Dark Angels series, first. The result will be a much more enjoyable reading of The Ion Raider and much more excitement about the story.
It has taken me longer than expected to finish reading it -- I kept putting it down to read other books that I bought or checked out of the library.
This is not usual for me.
The story started sort of slow and kind of meandered along until suddenly it stopped. Not ended, stopped.
I have many other series books I follow that have hooks into the follow-on stories but none of them just stop. I guess Mr. Whates reached his contracted word count and decided to just continue in another book.
Oh, I've reached the end of my agreed-upon review
