Much fun. ( )

This is a very generous 4*, unfortunately the 5* system isn't very good for ratings, especially if one can't select a 1/2*.

I have to admit this series has been growing on me. It has taken awhile for me to really get comfortable with her power level, yet now that I have accepted it I find the story more compelling. ( )

This series is so DAMN good! I literally spent every moment I could reading this from start to finish. I can't WAIT for more, wish I had reread the previous books prior. Intense, engaging… amazing precog being able to see all the twisted possibilities and finding only one path to save billions in the future.

This is the third installment in the series and, even though these books are not without a fault or two, I still find them enjoyable reading. Ia have now graduated from the navy officers school and given command of a ship, and not just any ship. It is time for some Salik clobber time.

There are plenty of enjoyable action in this book. At he same time, as the previous book did, it sometimes slows down and becomes a bit boring. Also, as in previous books Ia’s speeches can be a bit over the top at times. Luckily the action and the good parts of the book weighs up the not so good parts with quite a margin.

The space action is perhaps not on the level of the best authors out there but it is still enjoyable and comes with a reasonable amount of believability. Well, if you discount some minor details like the fact that the ship’s captain can predict the future etc. Speaking of predicting the future, I thought the incident somewhere around two-thirds into the book was not so well thought through. I mean, Ia have carefully predicted and planned the future and for some reason she did not see this coming? Okay, it made for a spicy episode afterwards but I felt her lapse of judgement needed a bit more reason behind it.

One thing that I find somewhat annoying is the attitude of the high brass against Ia. She has saved their bacon and pulled miracles over and over again and they still give her a hard time and with stupid idiotic arguments as well. I know that some of them are compromised by the Feyori but not all of them. That is just so frustrating. Having said that I also have to say that reading her taking down their “arguments” is very enjoyable.

As in the previous books Ia is evolving even though her academy years are over. I do miss those parts but then, she cannot be a junior forever if one want the story to progress. Anyway, when it comes to Ia, evolving means more than just maturing psychologically but I will not spoil the book by going into details on that. I do hope that this particular thread in the story does not go all overboard though.

The ending of the book was perhaps somewhat predictable but regardless of that, after having read said predictable ending, I am indeed eager to see where the story takes us next. Overall a fun book to read and I am looking forward to the next one in the series.
