can they prevent the Darkness from spreading?
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on November 6, 2019
Wow! Another great story from C Gockel! Volka, 6T9, Carl, and Sundancer are trying to assist the Republic in preventing the spread of the Darkness... and it frightens Sundancer terribly!
Our team is enlisted to help fight the Darkness while the One tries to assist in the effort. However, things do not go as according to plan... Once again, we have a fast paced story where our friends Volka, 6T9, Carl, and Sundancer try to do what is right - despite the cost. The story is indeed complex, but all the elements come together as we reach the climax. This is where the author excels - bringing diverse elements together.
We have great characters in Volka, 6T9, Carl, and Sundancer - we are seeing them grow as a team though they are quite a diverse mix! There are other characters to flesh out the story... some are likable... some... well, not so much. We see Volka and Sixty grow in character and in their trust in each other... and perhaps a growing affection as well!
While there is fast paced action, we also have some humor (sometimes Sixty just can't help himself!), tension, fear, suspense, horror, dread, heartache, and perhaps a little romance... One of the characters is very uncertain that it can be love - she didn't program that into herself... The story falls together effortlessly as they fight to succeed in their mission. It's not your usual sci fi story - and that's what makes this special.
I love this story! I love the series thus far! I love the author's work as a whole! I can't wait to see what happens to our friends in the next story! (I have bought the next book in the series and preordered the one after it as well!) If you like a story that isn't the usual stuff - read this book!
