The main focus, or what should have been the main focus, is the Peacekeeper Tom Wilks. The book starts of with Tom being admitted to the Peacekeeper academy and we start to follow him in his training which, as you can deduce from the book blurb above, includes a bit of “upgrading”. Quite a bit actually. This is a great part of the book. However, I feel a lot more time could be spent on this. It feels rushed and Tom is a full-fledged Peacekeeper way too early.
Then the book takes off with a story about infiltration and conspiracy to take over the Earth by an old terrorist organization. Not surprisingly their leader is referred to as “High Sultan”. This is not bad although I find the conclusion a bit unsatisfactory given the actions these terrorists take during the course of the story. There are some nice tie-ins with the previous books though.
However, my main gripe is that each part of this book, the Peacekeeper training and the terrorist part, could easily have been made into two separate really good books. As it stands now it is a good book but it feels somehow lacking or perhaps more precisely I get a feeling of wasted potential.
Having said that, it is definitely a read-worthy book.
The plot is good but one I've seen before in different setups.
A fast fun read.
This is a great stand alone book, but I feel like this book was personally written for those of us that have read the series first.
Do yourself a favor, pick up the first Galactic Alliance book, then join the rest of us cringing there's only 3 books so far.
Don't want to mislead anyone- there is a very satisfying conclusion, but, you definitely want to learn more about the characters, world's and tech Doug has fleshed out.
