Review: For the Triumph of Evil is an instalment in the Frontiers Saga that I think had the potential to be great, but stops short at “perfectly solid”.
For the most part, it feels disconnected from the rest of the series, as if it’s a bit of a Christmas special in the same world with the same characters. That’s not to say that the overall plot doesn’t develop through this book, it does, the outcome of this book is meaningful, but a lot of the oxygen in this particular instalment spent on what is essentially a self-contained story within the wider story. This isn’t a problem - it’s still a good story - but for me, it fails to stir up and utilise some of the engagement and emotional attachment I feel about the plot as a whole.
