Read full description of the books Matadora:I've read 2 of these now and I must say that the books are based on a good idea. They are well written and "mostly" draw me in. The problem here (that brings the rating down to 3) is pretty much the same one that I had with the first in the series The Man Who Never Missed). The novel starts out well, gives us a good protagonist and spins right into an action packed opening with some plot building. From there we move into an interesting plot device (he said being careful not to give an untagged spoiler)... BUT, almost halfway in or less we hit another, slow down. The author in the first book led us into the "how our hero became our hero" story line and then incorporated the "heart breaking romance" plot-line. For me this bogged the story down badly, but it was over relatively quickly...in that book. When I say it was over relatively quickly I mean in comparison to this book.
I will pause here to note that some of you may very well like the part of this book that I rate low much more than I. I'm not in general a fan of romance or love stories that overwhelm other parts of the story. The second "more than half" of this one is very much filled with this type of a story. To a certain extent the chapters tend to alternate for a while, one concerning the love story the next concentrating more on the "main" plot line...though later the two become very "intertwined" again.
So, I like the book, I like the plot and I bought three books at once so I intend to read the next one. The story of a resistance to the aging yet huge and powerful Galactic Confederation is a good one. The characters are good, everything is well done. I just don't care for the all encompassing romance angle. Maybe you will and you'll give it a higher rating...
(view spoiler)[ I just wanted to note for those who care that this is not only a book with a long drawn out romance tale...it's sort of a double romance tale. The first is a kind of "unrequited love story". One party loves the other, but said other party has trouble with...love. Ahh, the pain, the suffering. She cares but she doesn't love, how sad, what pathos... Especially when you figure that she did fall in love with her client later.
I really don't like romance stories. If I did I'd read stories that present themselves as romance, not science fiction action. Oh well. Those of you who've read my other reviews know I'm not a big fan of romance. Some of you will like it better, enjoy. (hide spoiler)]
So as I said 3 stars and overall a good novel. If you like science fiction, a little action, revolution stories....romance. Try it.
