The lives of elder AI Skippy, General Joe Bishop and the band of
"Merry Pirates" are never easy. Despite having brought to Earth a
tame Elder Sentinel at the end of the previous book, Earth's having
an apparent (because of course being the Merry Pirates, it's all a
bluff) protector only leads to *new* problems with the Awful Kitties
and Lazy Spiders and both of their multi-species coalitions, not
to mention the Jeraptha dirty-tricks division pinning some of their
own over-the-top exploits on Bishop.
As usual, Bishop can't even tell his chain of command the true situation
as all communications on Earth are hopelessly compromised by the senior
species, and the final icing on this unappetizing cake is the fact that
apparently there has been a second Elder AI acting against Joe & Skippy
the whole time, a player they absolutely have to flush out to have any
chance of winning.
I think there must have been an episode left out of the last book the
way the Kristang return to Earth was relegated to an audio-drama in
between two other books. In the event, we never do learn how the Pirates
found the Sentinel and how Skippy brought it on-side. That's not exactly
a minor point! On the whole I thought this book was a bit below the
series average. The humor was more forced than usual, and while I never
figured out Bishop's plan in toto, I knew certain events we were seeing
were parts of it as had been telegraphed a bit too clearly. Still the
denouement signals that we are finally heading towards the endgame, and
I'm still on board.
I love the tongue and cheek the way he narrates.
It was an addictive read and I hate to see it end.
Yes it did. Will I read book 15. Yes I will. Overall it gets a 4 out of 5 simply because I love the series but I'm simply exhausted readying it. It has become too long. It feels like the same story I've read 8 times already. I mean I guess it is hard to be new when you are on book 14. But at least book 15 should be interesting with the cliff hanger this book left us with. Overall good job but I'm glad the author is wrapping this series up.
