That Which Other Men Cannot Do (The Frontiers Saga, #15) The title That Which Other Men Cannot Do is the tag line of the Ghatazak. It refers to the nasty but necessary killing and other decisions that are required of warriors. This is the theme of this novel. An Admiral asks the President if he wants a rival and potential Jung operative assassinated? A captain who has to issue orders he know will result in the deaths of friends and billions of individuals. A cult leader who must in his own mind sacrifice one or two of his followers to achieve his purposes. A leader who must decide weigh the potential consequences of attacking and enemies home world and with how much force. And of course the individual who must chose between the needs of the many versus the life on the one. These are the themes of this final chapter of this part of Browns truly epic space opera. The summer is over and so is this part of a highly enjoyable summer read. I loved the characters and the situations they were placed in and how Brown resolved them. There were moments of high drama as well as dialog that caused me to laugh out loud. I was unable to quit reading this series once I started it. I will miss the characters Brown has created and whom I have come love and know this summer. I am grateful to the Cleveland Public Library (CPL.ORG) and the Cuyahoga County Public Library (cuyahogalibrary.org) for buying the whole series . I could not have afforded to purchase the series on my own. ( )

And so it ends (for now).

What they have not yet seen, is that we are willing to go above and beyond, to take that extra step, to cross the furthest line…that we are willing to do what other men cannot do…what the Jung already do. That is a valid reason to attack the Jung home system.


I started [b:Aurora: CV-01|13504505|Aurora CV-01 (The Frontiers Saga #1)|Ryk Brown|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1334812795l/13504505._SX50_.jpg|19054364] all the way back in September. 15 books in Part 1 of a series? Sure! Over the books, Ryk Brown has quite obviously improved his craft and built quite a deep world.

That being said, [b:That Which Other Men Cannot Do|28248264|That Which Other Men Cannot Do (The Frontiers Saga, #15)|Ryk Brown|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1450575805l/28248264._SY75_.jpg|48284006] was something of a disappointment to me. After 15 books of building up the Jung as this big bad, we've spent a few now with the Aurora and co kicking butt and taking systems back and the first 3/4 of this book is more of the same. New designs, new ships, new missions, trial runs, and oh so many highly detailed fight scenes in space... and it's really all starting to get a bit old. Up through the halfway point, this would have been one of my lower rated books in the series.

When they finally find the Jung homeworld and take the fight to them, that was a pretty crazy fight. But on the other hand, the stakes never really felt real. Millions die, entire worlds are destroyed... and it's all for what? Big crazy tech space battles! That is certainly well done and takes the whole book up a notch. I just wish it were earlier.

Most of the characters I've really come to know and enjoy. It's interesting seeing them each grow and change over 15 books and how they all interact. The one that annoys me the most I would have to say is Jessica. She just gets away with too much. She should have been fired or moved to just special ops several books ago. If she can't deal with authority, put her in another command structure already. She already does it to some extent. Just make it permanent.

And then it ends. With a cliffhanger, which I've come to expect from this series, although seeing it in the last book of Part 1 was... a bit jarring. But you know? I think in this case it works.

And then I find that there are already two more series out:

- Fall of the Core with 4 novellas as a prequel to the main series and about the Digital Plague
- Part 2: Rogue Castes with 13 of 15 books published so far
- A total planned 3 more parts for 5 total, each with 15 books (that's crazy)

I'm a bit burned out at the moment, but I'm going to have to give them a chance at some point.

Side note: What in the world was with Captain Dubnyk? I kept expecting more from that plot. Perhaps next time around? ( )
