To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The conclusion to the story of Lazarus. Well paced and well written. It went by quickly and all the loose ends were tied up. I think the end can much faster than it needed to but it never really felt forced or rushed so I am thinking my disappointment with these adventures coming to end might be biasing my opinions.
I have mentioned this before in my review of either the first or second book but it bears repeating; many authors in scifi try to make 'aliens' but they come across as humans with six limbs or who happen to be orange. Ward makes an effort to bring out the 'humanness' in each of his alien races and I think the intent makes all of the difference in this story. I'll certainly read more if they ever come to be.
This series creates a problem for me. Having read most of this authors work, I had a favorite two, now it has to be three. The Jessica Keller and Science Officer has been joined by the Lazarus Alliance. This was a wonderful series highlighted by the usual excellent space battles, political intrigue, spies, aliens and the Blaze Ward level of character interaction. The ending was excellent, but, I would hope when Lazarus gets bored a followup edition.
Masterfully written, well thought out. Ya there is space war but it is not the purpose of the book or the series. I'm a bit sad that it is over. Maybe another book about what the main characters do next? Hint hint... please....
