One could say that this book is more about political power plays, vendettas and subterfuge than the other books. Normally I am not too keen on those kind of stories. In this book however, there are enough “good stuff” to make me enjoy it despite the internal strife.
One thing that I like are the surprise moments starting right at the moment when Jared and Kelsey arrives in their supercharged new (or should I say old since it is Old Terran ships) fleet which dwarfs, outruns and outguns everything anyone at home has seen until now. Kelsey of course creates a few dropped jaws but the rest of the crew gets their 15 minutes of fame as well. I quite liked Carl’s show down with professor Bedford (who turned out to be quite likable) for instance.
The snake in the garden is of course Crown Prince Ethan Bandar. Unfortunately the characterization of Ethan is almost over the top just as with Captain Breckenridge (who makes a brief return in this book by the way). Ethan is not as stupid as Breckenridge but his fanatical paranoia which makes him convinced that everyone is conspiring to grab the throne from him and his continuous monologues where he convinces him of this very “fact” and that his actions are justified are a wee bit tiring.
Naturally Nathan manages to screw up more than a few things and the book mostly revolves around our friends trying to unravel his betrayals and scheming to grab the throne even if it tears the Empire apart. However, even though it probably counts as a bit of a spoiler (be warned), I have to say that one of the things that I like in these books is that the bad guys generally gets what they deserve and this goes for this book as well.
Again Terry Mixon has woven together and fun to read, fairly fast paced adventure story. I quite enjoyed it.
I was engaged enough to read all seven of the books currently published. Similar to Doug Dandridge's Exodus series a war with an overwhelming enemy and unfortunately also a never ending story. I am a bit OCD and hate series that do not end, or at least each story is complete in itself.
This series follows history as descendents of a galactic empire come back into contact with the forces which overthrew the original Empire. The author takes several side plots as he develops the war. Hopefully he will actually bring the war to some conclusion soon as I hate unfinished stories.
A bastard emperors son who just wants to do his duty to the Empire, a spoiled princess, a conniving emperors' son who fears the bastard is after his future throne, evil computers with mind controlled people, a beautiful princess from another space kingdom, space battles and technology breakthroughs, ...this series includes almost every cliché possible. But they are clichés because they work. This is a fun fast paced series. You should read in order to get the most out each character. But don't expect great literature, just fun. Although I think you could pick up almost any of the books and read them independently. The series starts out slow as borderline three to four star but gets better. The series as a whole is a solid four stars.
The latest addition in Terry Mixon's The Empire of Bones series finds the heroes returning home, leading a fleet of undermanned old Empire ships and the news that the rebel empire exists, and will be coming for them ... not everyone is pleased. Having become invested in the characters over the course of the previous 4 books, I found this to novel to be well thought out, fast paced, with a good sense of adventure. If you're a science fiction fan, none of the novels have failed to entertain, and this is no exception. I look forward to the next novel (Reconnaissance in Force), which is apparently scheduled for release in December 2016.
