Review: It’s getting there, it’s getting there…
After the somewhat boring second book in this series, the third book shows a lot more promise. The relatively large number of characters, which have until now mostly been hastily introduced and spent their time playing up to whatever role they were cast in, are now starting to actually develop. This is giving me hope that this series will become more character-driven than these books have been so far, which will hopefully add a little more depth to the (admittedly good) shooty bangy actiony space-fighting stuff. Given the number of books that have been released, and have been planned, in this series I am now getting really interested in seeing which direction this story will take. It feels like a proper build-up, and based on this book I finally feel that this series has the potential to become really good.
Of course, it’s still a somewhat space-opera’y quick, easily digestible, serial-feeling book. But no one would pick up this series expecting it to be anything else. It’s setting out to be good fun, no more, no less. This book was a really enjoyable and relaxing way of spending some hours in the afternoon sun on a Sunday. After reading this I hope and expect that as long as the weather provides the sun, this series will provide the fun.
