The Slaver Wars Book 5

Operation First Strike is coming to an end. It has succeeded in buying the Human Federation of Worlds valuable time to prepare for the coming invasion. Now Fleet Admiral Streth needs to get his remaining warships back home to aid in the defense of the human worlds. The AIs and the Hocklyns are determined to follow the admiral and annihilate every single human in the Federation. The humans are massively outnumbered, but they have a daring plan that just might save their worlds. However, the AIs have a plan of their own, one that if it succeeds will ensure the end of the human race.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another Read in a Day 10 février 2014
Par J.Z. Watkins - Publié sur Amazon.com

This latest addition had me picking up speed with reading it as I raced through some passages too caught up in wanting to know what happened next, to who survived and didn't. I found that sometimes I would quickly read through a battle, see who survived and then went back for a slower read to drink in all the lovely details that this author keeps placing in his books. It was surprising to see who didn't make it through the book, some that have been around a very long time. It just shows how the author created characters to care for during the series and how involved one could get with them.

There were my favorites, Streth, Ariel, Clarissa, Jeremy and the gang of five as well as others that gave a sense of connection and continuity, more so than the random fighter pilot introduced in one paragraph only to die a paragraph later. I think the threat to the long time characters was more intense. I found that oddly enough, I was more concerned with Clarissa's survival than Amanda's.

There were sacrifices, tragic losses, surprise victories and turn overs to keep the pace up, but not too fast, from beginning to end. With exciting battles, meeting of interesting allies, and unveiling a little more of the setting.

Also I've been meaning to mention this for books now, but any, like me, who are space settlement enthusiast, this setting has some wonderful inclusions of orbital habitats. Its by no means a central part of the story, but its nice to see in any sci-fi setting's background.

All in all, another book where I intended on a few pages today and more tomorrow, and ended up putting aside everything else to finish reading the latest book in a day.

There were a bit too many losses to call it my favorite of the series, I think, so far, book four remains my favorite one, but this one was certainly the most epic of the series to date. I look forward to more in this series (and hopefully the return of one particular character left with a doubtful question mark, one of my two favorite characters...hope springs eternal and all).

The only problem with finishing it in a day means a longer wait until the next book, but very glad there are plans for more books.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Care Bears! Really! Our author Has a Sense of Humor! 7 octobre 2014
Par Guardsix - Publié sur Amazon.com

Wow! What a great series! I think I said that before but I’ll probably repeat that in every review because it is a great series. In this book we’re waiting on the Hocklyn’s and their masters, the AIs, to come and take away a forward operating base that we originally took from them. We know that battle is going to be really, really tough and we don’t know how many AI ships will be in the new fleet. Admiral Streth has a plan for the defense of this planet but his primary objective is to get the fight taken back to New Providence so the Federation of Humans can apply their full might against a combined Hocklyn/AI fleet. It’s felt that, at New Providence, we might have a chance if the AIs don’t send an unreasonable fleet against the Federation.

The humans are astounding the Hocklyns by attacking and destroying AI ships. That has never been done in the history of the Hocklyn civilization. They have been directed by the AIs to gather up a huge armada that will completely wipe out the humans at the forward operations base and then follow them all the way back to their home worlds. It is a battle of genocide! The space fighting is really fast paced and described in pretty good detail. I’m particularly pleased that the author has given us the alien side of this war as well as the human. It is interesting to read what the aliens are thinking about during these battles.

I don’t know Admiral Streth expects to defeat the Hocklyns especially given that the Hocklyns have a fleet that measures in the thousands of ships. Most humans fleets number in the 100 to 200 ships including support vessels. It has also taken a lot of firepower just to defeat one single AI ship. How will the Federation stand up to 10 AI ships in one single battle?

The Federation needs help but all of it’s allies are smaller civilizations that can’t provide much in support of the Federation military effort. There is even one ally that has now refused to even discuss becoming involved in this war with the Hocklyns and AIs. I wonder why they have taken such a stand?

You will be surprised what is revealed in this book. There are a lot of things that are not as they seem. The Federation will need help because the AI fleet is much, much larger than anyone every expected and know one in the Federation has a clue.

Continue reading this series. You will not be disappointed.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good old-fashioned grand space opera 20 août 2014
Par Charles F. Kartman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
"Retaliation" is sort of a throwback to the old days of giant space battles as written by Doc Smith: fleets of space ships growing ever more numerous, with ever improving systems. But the enemy AI is reasonably interesting -- far more so that the other alien races encountered here, none of whom is very "alien" -- and there is a rather interesting revelation that I will leave for you to discover. The Hocklyn are stock bad guys, but at least they learn from experience, to the regret of Fleet Admiral Hedon Streth and his colleagues.

The writing is not especially good (neither was Doc Smith's), with lots of repetition and perhaps a few too many cuts to the council meetings of each side. There are a lot of characters, and each gets his/her own time at center stage.

But the grand space opera is the real star of the series, and it is hard not to be pulled into the inherent drama of this massive conflict. And Mr. Weil lays out his teasers quite skillfully, particularly regarding the potential problems to be faced by the AI's, and the origin story that is gradually unfolding. We also discover the existence of Federation survivors in the worlds laid waste by the AI's; while they don't play an important role in "Retaliation", this also promises to be an interesting development in future volumes.

This is an odd series. Its many flaws cannot be overlooked, but the sum is greater than the parts and it is well worth reading IMHO.
