Second book in series has some serious flaws
Reviewed in the United States on April 2, 2021
I enjoyed the first book “The Bounty Hunter” and was hoping the continuation in “Alien Artifacts” would be just as entertaining. Alas, to enjoy this volume I recommend reading the first 3 or 4 chapters and then skip to the final two chapters; everything else is a whirling cycle of ‘who is betraying who’, ‘which type of hungry monster eats who next’, and ‘what is real, not real, bot, cyborg, or clone’ ?
I nearly stopped reading the book several times out of frustration with the author’s incomprehensible story line, but managed to finish the book, begrudgingly. Book 1 was very good, book 2 wasn’t, and I am hopeful that the 3rd book will return to an interesting story line... but if not, it will be ‘goodbye’ to Mr. Korbin’s struggles.
