on July 04, 2013 :
I very much enjoyed the second book in this series "Passengers to Zeta Nine". It was a masterpiece of description and tech that didn't seem all that far-fetched for the sci-fi genre. "Revelations" however brought back Ben and Lori, Symch and Goster (I wasn't a big fan of the first book because of those characters) much to my dismay. What made the second book the best of the series so far was how there was always another discovery right around the corner. It spoke to the adventurer in me and I felt like I was on Zeta Nine with the main characters. "Revelations" fits in very little with the previous book and is more of a prison escape story with the Symch and Goster storyline. There were some interesting parts in there with the interactions of other characters but just not as good as all the discoveries from the previous book.
The Ben and Lori parts are very typical to their characters; investigative, logical and tenacious. Without spoiling anything it's hard to describe the reasons I don't enjoy their storyline as much. I suppose if you were a fan of the first book with them, that you will enjoy this one more than I did.
The book is peppered with just enough Raife and Nancy to keep me turning pages, hoping to get another new discovery on their new planet, but I felt let down by the lack of writing done on those two, who in my opinion are the real stars of this good series of books.
So the long and the short of it, is it's a good book. It's well written in the style that I'm accustomed to with Peter Salisbury's work but it falls a bit short of expectations. It's definitely worth it for the price, so it's not to say that it's not good value for money. I just can't help but ache for more Nancy and Raife adventures... but then comes the 4th book "Pioneers" which is much more of what the Dr. ordered.
