This is a self contained story, but still very much a middle episode type story. It is basically a heist story. To get this information on this data core the crew of the Phoenix must break into an alien vault on the moon of Kantovan, a Venus-like world. To pull this off they need to work with aliens they can't trust, manipulate judicial structures and descend to the surface of a hellish world.
Shepherd does not disappoint here. The world building is fantastic as usual, not just the harsh moon of Kantovan, but also alien cities, a temple built out of a mountain and the Tsubarata, a massive asteroid habitat housing the galactic version of the UN. The pace is tight and the plot always rising, there is no point when I ever felt that the story was dragging or that a subplot was not working. The characters were always on point and well developed.
But the story is solid, with likable characters, textured characterization, and a fairly intriguing plot. This book had no space battles — fine with me — but the first two books did. Contents are innocuous enough (no sex) and this series is probably fine for older kids, except for the cussing (mainly F-bombs). But these are marines.
Excellent audible narration, too.
This is a fast moving story, easy to read in several sittings, and there is good interplay between all the characters and continued development of the ships crew and the story line itself. But pay attention, as there are a number of open aspects to the story that need to be resolved.
Looking forward to the next installment.
Basically it covers my cyberpunk itch, military sci fi needs, star trek compulsions and my need for more BSG.
Characters to love and I get to see what happens to them. Joy. Books like these are my bread and butter.
