The book is not boring but the story is very light and naive. The bad guys are stupid and useless, the good guys are super intelligent strong and smart.
The science is more in domain of fantasy, with almost no explanations at all
I have listened to over a hundred books and this is the first book that I just could not make my self finish listening. The plot is incredibly shallow and uninteresting. There is simply nothing in this book that makes you want to hear the next sentence written.
If the intention was to write a science fiction parody, then good job, otherwise… Jesus, I cannot find the right words to describe the nothingness of this book.
I will not go into details because everything is just bad.
Where to start.
The story is very weak, as are all the characters. There is no depth in the story at all. The book is not boring, but you should not expect any excitements either.
It reminds me of a SF B movie, where the best way to enjoy it is to disconnect half of your brain.
All the historical references are inaccurate at best.
Janissaries are known from the Otoman empire, not from Persian empire.
I nice book, that continues the story of Black Jack. Author has opened a lot of new plots and possibilities for the continuation of the story.
Same style as the previous books in the series with a lot of space fight action.
The story is moving from a novel about a person “Honor Harrington” to a complex political intrigue.
It seems that the author explored all the possibilities with Honor and is moving on.
The other big change is the lack of space battle scenes.
I can still recommend this book for fans of the “Honorverse”
The series story is good but this book is just a repetition of the action seen in the first two books.
The last couple of chapters prepares you to what it seems planned to be a very long proccession of books.
A book starting a very interesting story of how wrong can it get. It reminds me a lot of George Orwells 1984.
