The authors vividly describe the miserable conditions of earth with its water removed by hostile aliens and also give a highly credible depiction of Mars as the action moves there from earth.
As a retired Army officer, I appreciated the pronouncement of an ancient truism by Corporal Bouma, “But you didn’t go to war with the army you wanted - or in this case, squad. You went to war with the one you had.” This statement is a paraphrase of a 2004 comment by then Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, “You go to war with the Army you have, not the Army you might want or wish to have...”
Another memorable scene involved Dr. Sophie Winston who, when facing overwhelmingly odds, recalled her father’s favorite poem by Dylan Thomas, “Do not go gentle into that good night...Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”
Although I was saddened by the loss of several of my favorite characters, I was gratified that the series came to an appropriate and plausible ending.
Back on Earth, the Cheyenne Mountain AI, Alexis, is directing the defense of the survivors aboard the grounded NTC submarine Ghost of Atlantis and isolated survivors struggling against the Organics. Using an overlooked satellite, LOLO, Alexis monitored the progress of the Organic assault. With only twenty percent of the ocean water remaining, little time remained for the Earth.
Captured during Operation Redemption, Captain Rick Noble was held in a blue orb aboard a huge Organic spacecraft with thousands of other aliens held in identical orbs. Noble was naked with a tube connecting through his abdomen to supply him with enough nourishment to stay alive. His situation appears hopeless.
This collaboration between two master storytellers is long awaited. The characters have been familiar through the first three books. Like family, we've gotten close to Sophie and Emanuel and the other survivors of the Biosphere, and their struggles have enticed us mercilessly. The storyline is continued with a twist or two, a few chuckles, but mostly a breathtaking fight for survival on two planets. The action is a fast-paced, exciting thrill ride, intense, surprise filled! Don't miss this read, it's great!
I was so excited to hear Nicholas Sansbury Smith was teaming up with another favorite author of mine to write a book 4 and give us the ending he wanted! Anthony Melchiorri brings real life science to everything he writes and I knew this story was one I had to read.
Let me say, they do not disappoint. From page one this grabs you and pulls you right back into that world. There are plenty of twists and turns and edge of your seat action. You see no way for a good end for us, no way that anything can work out, but you also can’t stop reading!
Is it a happy ending? Does it leave you hanging? I’m not saying. I am going to say it’s a must read story that gives you an ending that works and feels right. It’s a story that any fan of the genre will enjoy from beginning to end and wish would just keep going. I’ll also say I’d love to see these two team up again to make a series from start to finish, cause they make a great team.
What's great about this book? Several things, actually! The story picks up where the last book left everyone... and the characters are true to form so we recognize them. The characters have also grown and evolved through their experiences dealing with the Organics. We also experience the fear once again! Jeff and David prove they aren't just cowering kids - they do what needs to be done to help save their crew... The struggle to reach an intended new home on Mars... well, you need to read it to find out!
As usual, Nicholas Sansbury Smith and Anthony J Melchiorri created a story that has your heart racing through all the action and adventures at such a speed that leaves you breathless! All the questions we had were answered in a satisfying manner. Too, the answers and the ending felt the way they should. Though I hate to see the series end, I was very happy with how everything came together in the end. Everything just fit together. (Some books make you feel cheated by the end, you know what I mean - this book ended the way it should and leaving you satisfied that it all fit.) I hope the authors will collaborate together again!
This was the first series I had read of Smith's... and I was so happy to revisit the story again to the end! Read it! You'll know why I grew enamored of the author's work... and read everything he writes!
