There are still elements of the Lost Fleet Series that have to be answered and with the closing of this part of the adventure new and more complex questions have come to light.
What will be the fate of the AIs and the consequences of the discovery of the new found ship?
Will they Link up with the Home Galaxy?
Can they become a conjoined multidimensional space fairing Empire.
Only time and the Author's Imagination can bring this to fruition and give us some more of a suburb reading adventure.
Can not wait to see what will come in the next iteration of this Complex and Compelling Series.
This book takes off pretty much directly from the previous book in the series, Into The Darkness. A good chunk of our heroes are still trapped in a distant galaxy. A galaxy which, unfortunately, is inhabited by the Simulins who where behind most of the bad things that happened in the Milky way in the previous books.
The book follows both our heroes in the Triangulum galaxy as well as our remaining heroes back home. As usual there is plenty of fleet action and both sides do get their behinds whooped although the Simulins as well as the Sharis do end up with the short end of the stick…well, at least in the short term. The humans are still a bit of the underdog at least as far as the Simulins with their vast empire are concerned.
When our heroes are not out fighting the Simulins or the Sharis they are building their forces or exploring the galaxy to try to find remains of the old race that once existed in the universe. Needless to say they do indeed find a few interesting items. Unfortunately, in order to secure said items (or at least keep them out of the hands of the bad guys), sacrifices had to be made. Dire sacrifices.
There is a wee bit of political nonsense in the book as well but it is quite miniscule and do not really cause much annoyance. Given the previously mentioned sacrifices I do indeed hope that the Alton’s revise their stance on certain issues though.
As usual the book as a pretty fast paced ride with a lot of good action as well as likable characters and in general it is a good, not too heavy though, space opera. I like that the author still, even though we are quite far into the series, manages to get a few surprise moments for the bad guys into the book. In particular this goes for the Shari’s who, until now have not really encountered the humans. At least not on the wrong end of human guns and missile launchers.
Again I am looking forward to the next instalment in the series.
Despite this sign of improvement, the flaws of the previous books are still evident, most especially repetition of dialogue and actions. Space battles are all identical (with one important exception). Even at the macro level, one cannot say that creativity is Mr. Weil's strong suit. He tends to take an idea and let it move and grow in a kind of organic way, rather than introduce brand new ideas. Case in point: the AI were all about killing off all organics, the Simulin want the same thing, excluding themselves. Aliens are mostly humans in humanoid bodies, even the sirian ones are just bigger and hairier
The bottom line, however, is that this series occupies a useful entertainment niche and can be readily recommended as such.
I'll obviously buy the next book to see what accidental miracle happens next, but I'm not sure how involved I'll get with the book. The author reads well and pleasant so it's an easy read.
