But unbeknownst to the rest of the Universe, Alexa isn't dead. Saved by an experimental space drive as the pirate flagship Red Dagger exploded around her, she, two of her fellow Vixens, an old pirate comrade, and a small contingent of Nastasturan Marines have been thrust into the hinterlands of the known universe, where they struggle to survive a primitive planet—only to stumble on an illegal mining and slaving operation.
Meanwhile, Florencia has invaded the low-tech planet Omar, ostensibly to use as a new capital world—after they've disposed of the inconvenient natives, of course. As thousands are taken into slavery and millions murdered, the Florencians proceed to rape the planet of its natural resources—especially the highly-valued metal, Tritonium Silver. In a stunning move, Alec and his personal army accomplish what the entire Nastasturan military has failed to do: they liberate not just Omar, obtaining a planet's worth of loyal warriors in one fell swoop, but also Handover from the totalitarian Florencian regime.
Later, by the time Alec swears fealty to Nastasturus, he has amassed an army and space fleet to rival any the Nastasturan military 88can muster—setting up the possibility that he will become a third deadly player in the new war, one that either Nastasturus nor the Florencians will be able to control or stand against. Already transformed by his rage over Alexa's death, Alec is prepared to move into action when he learns from Alexa's best friend Nina, rescued barely alive by his Grisamm allies, that his love may still be alive.
Five stars for this no-holds-barred novel. Less violent and sexually explicit than the first few, it's a perfect setup for the mayhem that's sure to come.
Section Twenty One is the fouth book in the Nastragull series and the pace is a little slower than the previous books, moving the story forward.
Alec von Hornet is building a private battle fleet and getting help from his loyal friends, still recovering from his wounds when he was almost eaten alive. Alexa is out with her band of Vixens, getting back into fighting shape. The author's attention to detail with weapons, spaceships, locations and all the characters of different species is just pheomenal!
This space opera really gets you hooked and I can't wait for book number five! I read a lot of science-ficton when I was younger and feel that the Nastragull books are fresh and innovative, still with a touch of Asimov and Heinlein.
Although it was odd and heavily laced with sadomasochist pornography and featured taboo subjects like cannibalism ,it had a certain twist and the action was incredible. It also set up a long-term plot between two star-crossed lovers that was highly unusual.
A little like reading the book of Revelation. .. it spoke of mystery and violence as good triumped over evil. Repeated scenes of rape desensitized the reader. .. and just when you thought it couldnt get any worse cannibalism on live subjects shocked the last fragile nerves.
It should be noted that the quality of writing and all the plot begin to deteriorate significantly toward the end of the second in the middle of the third book. The fourth book seemed to promise some resolution to the issues advanced before period.
Unfortunately the fourth book turned out to be it literal disaster. Editing became a major issue by the end of the third book and was pronounced in the fourth book. There is a disturbing habit of the author to jump from one episode plot to another in succeeding paragraphs without bothering to declare a chapter. Also noted was the tendency to copy and paste entire paragraphs in some cases , pages , of previous editions when describing scenes originally presented in the first three editions.
It's almost as if the author decided he finally had a sellable topic, and then begin to string out the plots and mix in a lot of garbage action that had nothing to do with the formation of the concept.
I must admit I left this series with a little bit of anger in the waste of time.
It is a bit distressing because this could have been a classic trilogy. but now it is is a one shot meteor followed by deep plunge into a literary lake.
Too bad.. this lumberjack author has a unique ability to shock the reader.
