I've read all of Craig Alanson's books, many multiple times. I pre ordered this book as soon as possible, I even set a diary reminder for when it would arrive. Yes I was really looking forward to reading it. However the last chapter was a huge disappointment, now I wish I'd never read it. I understand that there are to be 14 books in the series, so 5 more to go, however after this book it's very unlikely I'll be reading any of those 5. If you like the series stop at book 8.
