Unlike other books in the series this one is from a single pov and sexualized to the point that nearly every chapter contained some graphic sex scene or reference. Low action high.... IDK smut? Not a lot of takeaway unlike all previous parts to the series.
utterly and completely disgusted with this book you took a likeable 12 year old kid and slammed her forward 60 years and turned her into a street whore assassin. great thanks a lot.
I struggle for words to convey my deep disappointment in this book. It's like you decided to write trash romance or soft porn and trade off your earlier series good reviews. I wish I could get a refund. I love many of your series but John you took this one completely in the wrong direction in my opinion.
I liked the return of some known characters from earlier books. I greatly disliked a lot of the first half of the book. Needs editing.
Terrible storyline unless you are a fan of mixing Sci-fi with smutty romance novels. Don't believe what you read able this novel not being heavy in sex, because it is. Save the money and skip this one. It doesn't really even advance the Aldenta story any.
I read this when it first came out. I liked it then, not great, but good. Listening to this confirms my original thoughts. Not the best book in the Aldenata Universe but good. I would have preferred a female narrator but the person doing it was fine. Good book, entertaining and worth the credit.
If Mr. Ringo gets back to original ideas and good drama I might. This book was just one sex and violence scene after another. He seems to have taken the trashy vampire genera and put it into a scifi book. Really boring!
I would think carefully before trying another one of his books.
He is a decent narrator and does really well with certain characters.
Disgust and boredom. How much rape, murder and gratuitous sex need to be in a book? I like a good story that can stand by itself.
the series is stills entertaining, however if they stay along the cloak and dagger line and away from military sci-fi ( the reason I picked up this series) thet may lose me
The love scenes worked a bit on the amateur side and seemed disjointed from the earlier works. This book did tie in some of the previous characters which was a nice twist. .
