Publisher's Summary

War in the Heavens for Freedom on Earth

In this finale of the Freedom's Fire series, the Free Army tries to salvage victory from what looks like a total loss. They've found a weakness in the Gray-Trog alliance they think they can exploit. But they'll need to ally themselves with the hated MSS and put their trust in people they've sworn to overthrow.

Rushed

On the one hand, it pushes hard to portray the hard grind of continuous fighting and the sheer randomness that can result. Not every little plot line gets fully explained or gets a neat little bow wrapped around it for closure. We're seeing everything through Kane's perspective, and he's not omnipotent. In ways it's actually refreshing. (*spoiler* - We never got to find out whatever happened to Jill and her ship when they lost contact on the way to 61 Cygni.)

But much more than not, the finale reads like the author was scrambling to finish an essay 2 minutes before the end of the test. It was 95% setup, a climax so fast you'd miss it if you blinked, and barely a breath of a conclusion. After all that happened in the series we don't get 2 seconds to explore the results? What it meant for everyone? What the future holds? NOTHING?

The description says "finale" but I can't help but think that only means Adair plans on launching a second series right off the back of this one. It's the only way it makes any sense. Even if true, this deserved way more of an actual ending than the full stop we got.
