Third in the Big Sigma series, Artificial Evolution begins with our heroes facing the bureaucratic wrath of VectorCorp.

Reviews of Artificial Evolution by Joseph R. Lallo

RJHoward reviewed on July 8, 2021

At the heart of this 3rd in a series is a frightening idea: self-replicating robots with no off switches. The story's good, if not totally original at this point. The problem is that it can sustain a book of a fraction of the length of this one. It's repetitive after a short while and, like Lallo's other books, ends up being a war story.

I'm not a fan of military science fiction, regarding war as a genre of its own, not a fit extension of S.F. Yet, I think it odd to people such a story with mavericks, reporters, and loners. Such aren't welcome in any military I've heard of and it makes for a lot of unrealistic situations in this book. Guardians of the Galaxy has shown that teams of odd balls can plausibly engage in fighting and daring do, so there's no excuse.

That written, Lallo writes good characters who are flawed but grow on the reader. He doesn't minimize the boredom, smelly, and generally unpleasant experience of life in small spacecraft. Worth reading in military S.F. is your thing.

Love this series. Has everything you want in a space opera. Each book in this series kept me entertained with every page. This is not a hard core science fiction series, but a very fun read. Hope there will be more books in the future.
