"Rath's Rebellion" takes the ongoing saga of former contract assassin Rath Kalderim to a new and unexpected level of awesome, with an intelligent and plausible plot direction, combined with superb development of formerly minor characters from previous novels. I never rehash the plot when I review a novel, because the joy of being led down the author's rabbit hole is most satisfying when there's little to no warning of what's ahead...and I definitely don't want to ruin the surprises in store for readers with this installment! Even if you aren't much of a science fiction fan, (I'm not), but like Clancy-esque techno-thrillers, I'm betting that you'll be drawn to this series. (But you definitely MUST read them in order!!!)
Piers Platt has definitely hooked me into eagerly waiting for the next novel...I'm pretty sure that you'll feel the same way!
A well-developed world woven with interesting characters in a flawlessly written, fascinating story I long to see on the screen.
Well...what do you say to the continuation of a series that keeps bringing you so much joy to read?
I loved it! The progression of the storyline keeps you on the edge.
Only a few authors manage to keep the interest up in an ongoing saga without deviating from the story line or using repetitive phases, comments or actions when they can't think of something, cheapening the characters and the readers attachment to the story. Pier Platt maintains this intensity for me and I hope it does likewise for other readers.

Reviewed by J Bryden Lloyd
Note: I was gifted a copy of this work for an honest read and review. The following, as with all reviews, is my personal opinion of the submitted text.
Writing Style – 4.0/5.0 (Very Good)
It seems clear that the writing in this series has reached a level of consistency, although I suspect this is more to do with the fact that this second trilogy has been written as almost a single entity, and then divided into its parts.
Still a little pacey, but maintaining the good level of dialogue and structure, the flow continues to feel a little forced throughout this fifth instalment.
Yes, there are a lot of positives and it is a good read, but it carries the reader along in a way that suggests the story can’t wait to get to the end.
Character Development – 3.0/5.0 (Okay)
As we get to know several of the new characters, it is suddenly clear that there are multiple factions at work, all with seemingly similar aims.
While the established group improved a little and became settled within their sub-plots, I felt the new characters were left to fend for themselves. Filling the voids but never becoming fully entwined into the central plot unless required to be there.
The reason becomes clear later on, but I didn’t feel as drawn to this story as I should have been, because the characters didn’t feel real within the narrative.
Descriptive – 4.0/5.0 (Very Good)
A better effort from the last book, in my opinion. There are still a few characters who seem to slip too easily from the mind, but the narrative is a little more connected to the descriptive in this book, and the atmospheric work feels more complete.
Scene building is good quality and the dialogue continues to do its job and support the descriptive very well.
I don’t think the hell-for-leather pace of the central plot really helps, but this is much closer to the mark than the last book.
Language & Grammar – 4.0/5.0 (Very Good)
It seems this series has definitely found a level. Again, good word selection and usage. Again, good structure and fairly reasonable line editing.
Always room for a little improvement here, but it seems to be a case of “it is what it is”.
Plot – 4.0/5.0 (Very Good) – VERY MINOR SPOILERS
Now… a lot happens in this book, and not everything is clear and easy to follow for quite some time.
As the sub-plots begin to unwind a little, we do suddenly see a little bit of light. Unfortunately we also seem to lose a little coherence with the timeline of the piece, which begins to look a bit strained.
The central plot remains reasonably solid, despite being pushed back into the sidelines as the church monopolises a small majority of the centre ground.
Too soon, the end came. Much more could (and perhaps should) have been demanded of this book. It certainly would have felt more accomplished with a bigger plot impact as the story came to its conclusion.
Even so, this episode retained all of the best elements of the previous ones, and moved the story on very nicely.
General – 3.5/5.0 (Good)
Business as usual. Functional, sci-fi-ish cover, but again it falls a bit short of representing the content.
Unfortunately, I think this part went a little too far along the “everyone knows what’s going on” route, which means this would never be able to stand alone as a book in its own right.
For the series, it does well as a continuation and is a good enough read, with a good enough plot, to do itself some justice.
A very solid 3 and a half stars, upped to 4 for the Amazon restrictions.
This series is rapidly becoming one of my favorite to read.
Its almost a impossible to see all the plot twist that are being set up and the next book is already a MUST READ just to finish this cliff hanger.
