Publisher's Summary

Stranded.

The crew of the USCS Tempest has faced many hardships, but none so dire as crashing on a planet with no way to contact their ship. Now with no power, no resources, and no idea how to get back, they’ll have to find a way to survive on this strange, untamed world.

But not all is as it seems. This planet hides some dark secrets, such as why does the sun never seem to set? Or why, despite a lush environment, are there no other species here? Caspian, Evie and the rest of the crew have their work cut out for them if they want to discover the truth behind these mysteries. This planet was supposed to be a haven while they repaired the Tempest, but it’s quickly becoming a death trap.

And the only way off may be for Cas and Evie to face what they fear the most: failure.

Planetfall is the sixth book in the highly successful Infinity's End saga. Culminating the second set of trilogies in this series, this is one book you won’t want to miss! Pick it up today!

Character growth and story development exceptional

The start of Planetfall sees the crew of the Tempest trying to find a planet for which they can land the majority of the crew at, since the Tempest will run out of life support in a matter of days thanks to the damage that Diamant did when he came onboard with the other Bulaq, and sabotaged the ship in the previous book.
Having found a Planet, the crew attempt to determine if it will support human life, so that they can put the crew down, and then empty the majority of the ship, whilst they carry out repairs.
However, no matter what they do, they cannot get through the stratosphere of the planet, to tell what lays beneath, and what is on the surface of the planet. Multiple attempts by the main ship, shuttles, fighters, all fail.
Evie has a very ominous feeling about the planet, as it is the one from her dream, in which the planet has been overrun by the Andromeda aliens, and as soon as she sets foot on the planet, she is swarmed by the aliens.
Things are desperate though for the ship, Evie has no choice but to set down, because the ship is in such a bad way, if they don’t, they will lose even more people than they have lost now.
I don’t want to give too much away, no spoilers, but the Planet is a strange place, and has some fascinating things in store for those aboard the Tempest.
As I have said in previous books, this is very similar to shows like Star Trek, or The Orville, in that it has the same type of structure with the Ship’s Organisation, and the Coalition being very similar to the Federation. The storylines in each of the books are comparable to the storylines in the show’s episodes. One of the great thing though about Warren’s books, is that in Star Trek, it is only the Red Shirts that have any chance of dying, whereas in Infinity’s End, anyone is fair game, and this makes the series so much more exciting and thrilling.
Warren’s world (or Galaxy) building is just exceptional, with so much intricate detail, not just of the ship that the characters travel on, but the detail he has put into the aliens they encounter, and are part of the Coalition. Warren is one of few that have actually seriously thought about different species, and how they might evolve, as well as exist in space, and in a multi-species environment. The Multi-Dimensional ‘Sil’ as a species are just outstanding.
This quality of detail extends to the technological as well, with a comprehensive spread of compelling equipment, from Cas’s ‘Boom Cannon’ (Seriously, my favourite weapon in the entire series), to Xal’s exoskeleton. Warren’s descriptive work on the technology and science is both interesting and informative, without getting too lost in jargon so that you start skim-reading or flipping pages.
However, the fast paced action, as well as the intrigue and mystery that run through this book, mean that you won’t be able to put it down, and you will be flipping pages for another reason, as you just can’t read it fast enough to find out what happens to the various characters.
The Character work in this particular volume of the series is Masterful, Warren has shown just how extraordinary he is at writing powerful, gritty and realistic Character driven stories. Each of his characters are very real, genuine people, it gives the story a lot of credibility.
The growth and development of Evie has been amazing in this book, again, I don’t want to give away spoilers, but Evie has been changing and growing from the start, with significant change in Secrets Past. In this book, all of the questions that have been gathering about Evie’s character are finally answered, and we learn some astonishing stuff about her.
Her Character is just so brilliant in this story, so much fun, with a lot of really clever detail, and her dialogue (especially with Cas), is not only sensational, it is hilarious at times.
The other character that has really developed this book is Box. Box is another character that has been slowly growing over the last several books, with his move to the medical section and training under Xax. But he really steps up in this book, and there are some moments when he really shows that his emotional side is developing,
Cas has also grown, maybe not as much as the other two (it is Cas after all), but it is interesting seeing how he has changed in the face of all of the challenges that the crew has had to deal with, especially the loss of the Captain (Greene), in Book 4. His loyalty to Evie has meant that he has had to really look at who he is and make some interesting choices, and he is faced with more of those same challenges in this book.
Planetfall really sees a shift in the story as a lot of the questions we have about what is happening are answered, but it seems for each answer we get, we also get a couple of questions, but this is not necessarily a bad thing as it just adds to the intrigue of the story overall. This book really ramps up the story, and is going to lead into a brilliant part 7.
If you love Mil Sci-Fi – there is no way that you should miss this series, and if you have any interest in Trek or the Orville, this is a must.
Larry Gorman is truly gifted as the Narrator of the series, with a very easy to listen to voice, that is clear and concise. This allows him to provide a fantastic range of male and female character voices that are very easy to understand, and are also very distinguishable, meaning that each Character in the story, has their own voice, so that you can easily pick out who is talking as you listen. More importantly, Gorman captures the raw emotions of each of the Characters, so that we can really feel and understand the characters as they go through the story. Gorman’s Narration is outstanding, and he really brings this Audiobook to life, making it one to absolutely listen to, as opposed to reading, the Narration is just so good.

Next book please

A great story line set in, who knows what year but not necessarily in our future.
A bit of romance but not so much that you would need to wipe your eye

Just waiting for Eric's next volume
