In battle calculus it is best to keep your enemy unbalanced and unprepared for your attack. Be unpredictable. Advance and attack from areas they deem impossible. Use surprise. Overwhelming force. Violence on the objective. The Messenger has learned these lessons. Gradually becoming a good tactician as well as an impressive way machine. Now he needs to find out how to completely annihilate the Deepers before they can learn and take the fight back to the Cygnus Realm.
Twelve books in and this series is still as awesome as when it started. There is plenty of action to go as Dash and company continue to deal with the latest enemy to the Realm and humanity. If you haven't yet started reading this series and enjoy books about mechs then you will enjoy it.
First, let me start and say I am a fan of the series. It's a good read and enjoyable.
My issues are for the series, the Unseen had issues with the Golden. Dash no so much.
The casuality rate is just...well so unrealistic. The good guys lose one ship here or there. Maybe 100 dead in the whole series. This is a war. You would think millions dead. How many people fly these ships? (Not the mechs). I know Unseen technology and all but still. Just makes it more..well out of the moment for me.
Im a scifi addict and The Messenger series is a perfect fix. So far this second edition (the war against the Deepers) is a little better than the war with the Golden. It is full of action, fantastic tech, & a well thought out plot. There is no ridiculous x-rated porn scenes, like so many authors seem to be fond of. The story is told by battles and not one long, drawn out mystery. So the reader does not have to skip chapters to quickly end the suspense and get some satisfaction. There is no political or personal belief bias written into the book, as so many scifi and fantasy authors tend to do with their anti American, socialist preferences. Its an all around good story and is designed to be read by all ages. Oh, did I mention there are mechs?
The battle rages on! The resources; men, machines, and allies are stretched thin. A new, powerful enemy is stripping away planet resources over vast areas who care not for other beings lives. Can the Cygnus Realm possibly defeat this vast threat? The outlook is grim.
This seems to be the "bridge" from the initial plot to the actual end of the story. The premise of you "have to break a few eggs" seems to fit here. The omelet is the mystery. Very well written, and I refuse to tell the story! Read it yourself. Excellent !
