We continue to review The Free Fleet Series this week with book number three, No Rest for the Wicked. This time there is some good character growth and a much more serious plot. It’s clear that the author still had growing pains, but is finding his way.
We continue our trend of reviewing full book series this week with the second entry in the Free Fleet tales, Coming Home. The action and adventure in Coming Home is palpable, and avoids some of the uncomfortable points of the first book.
Although The Recruitment Rise of the Fleet is clearly the freshmen effort by an author, it has some interesting concepts that make it worthy of a read. And it stars a gamer as the main hero, which is always a plus.
While Croma Venture might not be quite as explosive as the other four books in the Spiral Wars series, it still presents a great look at how military sci-fi can be done right. And hopefully, it sets up even more adventures.
Book four of the Spiral Wars series, by Joel Shepard, is another amazing entry for fans of either military thrillers or sci-fi, or just novels with really good, action-oriented plots. We’ve reviewed the complete series up to this point, and there is not a bad book in the bunch.
Our reviewer fell in love with The Spiral Wars series with action packed military sci-fi books Renegade and Drysine Legacy by author Joel Shepard. But the third book, Kantovan Vault, blows those others out of the water.
Somehow, Drysine Legacy ramps up the action from the sci-fi thriller Renegade, which we very positively reviewed the other week. Renegade’s tale was action packed, but Drysine Legacy is off the charts, and a perfect read for Sci-Fi or Military enthusiasts.
One of the best military fiction type space opera books our reviewer has ever had the pleasure of enjoying, Renegade by Joel Shepard focuses on the crewmembers doing the actual fighting in a massive war.
While The Five Trials might appeal to some readers, the gratuitous use of sexual assault and torture as plot devices will probably keep this one far away from most mainstream readers. It’s even harder to take as an audiobook.
The plot of Skyward is intense, amazing and almost everything a Brandon Sanderson fan could want out of a book from him. In fact, though Skyward is a standalone tale, it would be a great candidate for a sequel or series.
