To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is an awesome book. I can't say enough about how good the 4HU is and how much I enjoy it. I've yet to be let down by any book by any author. The bar was set high by Mr. Wandrey and Mr. Kennedy and has been raised with each new author and book. I'm diving right into book 12 now.
I read a lot...a whole lot. I review books with a critical eye and have no issue pointing out when an Author falls short of my expectations. Chris and Mark have been consistently great authors to my SCFI minded way of thinking. Neither of them have disappointed me and when they collaborate you can count on an excellent read. If you have not started reading the series your missing out on some very good tales. The For Horseman universe rivals the story lines set by some of the great SCFI authors of the past. Heinlein, Foster, Dickson, Bradbury and many others would love reading these story's. Now about this particular story...it's a great read, just when you start thinking that there is no way to keep someone's interest in the 4HU universe Chris and Mark manage to put a spin and change of direction and BAM your off and running and turning the page as fast as you can to read the next revelation...and then you may just have to pause and open a previous story to see if you missed something and get an insight into what the situation is. I read a lot with Kindel unlimited but with the 4HU series I buy the books so I can always have them on my Ipad. As long as they write them I will buy them
Minerva is at the helm of the Science Guild. It is behind the recent troubles for the Horsemen and Earth. The various groups are being pulled together to attack a Science Guild space station. The Dusman, Humans, Depik, Sumatozous from the Cartography and Peacemakers all come together to take down this being. This book will once again increase the scope of the universe and add a bigger piece to the puzzle of whats behind the scenes. I won't spoil it here, but it is a big one. Sato and Rick ride in to help out. The power struggle between the Dusman and Humans inch towards a resolution. This story brings together many loose ends into one, but also provides a few of its own. It is a great ride for those that have been following the stories from Book 1. It is still a great book for the new merc, but you really should start at the beginning and work your way through.
