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.
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.
Make sure you read the entire series in order. And if you like the authors work, as I do, pay for it.
I think the thing I like the most is the frantic pace and improvised actions as they work to solve an issue. Reminds me of escaping the Death Star or breaking into Sulvi Point Last Exits. And good read, well worth your time (and money).

I apparently made the mistake of buying the first four books in the series.Read more
