I read this trilogy after first reading all of the 'In Her name' series, which I liked a lot. Unfortunately this trilogy is not so well written, with the hero and action just too miraculous to believe in. A continuous series of impossible situations to escape from, or recover from - but then... they escape! Injuries miraculously get recovered from. Falling out of planes. Blown up. Atomic fall out and radiation. Alien poison...on and on. Tremendous action, and certain death - cheated, time after time. It's too much.
And when you read the sequel, you don't want to be constantly dragged back to the previous book and told what happened. Each book should either be 'stand alone', or the author should expect that the reader has read the previous books. It is distracts the reader, and wastes time. So...in summary. Not a bad idea for a story, but the repeated, impossible, action escapes blow any sense of realism.
