Series: The Frontiers Saga #9
Publisher: Ryk Brown
Released: October 18, 2013
A chance to gain much needed resources…
A group of highly trained, merciless soldiers…
A half-completed ship on a trajectory to nowhere…
A lone operative on familiar yet dangerous ground…
Captain Scott and the crew of the Aurora have a chance to get everything they need to liberate their home world, but they may have to fight someone else's war first.
Aaaaand we’re back! After the slight feeling of setup-without-action in the previous instalment of the series, The Frontiers Saga is now reaping what it sowed.
As usual, I don’t want to say anything that will spoil the previous books for anyone who hasn’t read them, but our heroes (whoever they are these days) set out on what has become the obvious mission at this point, in order to prepare for what they, with good reason, believe to be the next thing they have to do. In order to do so, several of our heroes (again, whoever they are at this point) go down different roads whilst heading toward the same goal, and they face varying levels of adversity of their way there. There! Summary done.
Anyway, Resistance is back to being simple, fun, action is space, but, as with the previous books, it has the much more elaborate backdrop which has been built up through the previous books. At this point I’m enjoying these books just as much, if not more, based on how they progress the series rather than on how good they are individually. On their own the books are fun — as part of the series they’re fun, and much more substantive than they seem individually.
I can only reiterate what I’ve been trying to find new ways to say for my reviews of the past five books of this series. If you’re looking for a fun, relatively light, space-opera series with quite an astounding amount of instalments, start reading The Frontiers Saga. As usual, I’m really looking forward to reading more of it, and I’m very interested to see where the story will go from here.
