Good book, even though few slow passage regarding the internal romance. That is not actually The Lost Fleet, but it is quite pleasant to read (and could be addictive). In addition, the epilogue makes us impatient to read the other books.
I enjoyed this book and it reminded me of Lois McMaster Bujold's Miles Vorkosigan stories.
Let's say it slightly too short for a novel : I read it straight away while waiting for a plane, that is why four stars only.
A good sequel in the same way that the two previous books. Let's say Mervyn Bright could be compared in some way to some of Jack Vance's characters, like Glawen Clattuc for example (Cadwal Chronicles).
Nevertheless, these stories could have been united in just one bigger novel, a kind of book one in a hopefully long series.
I enjoyed this book (and the previous one), but maybe it is a bit too extreme : characters go between the worst fate and the highest expectation to fall back to doomsday. I fear that it could be tiresome eventually.
I chose this book due to good previous reviews (and it was free, so there was no risk at all). I really enjoyed the ideas developed in this novel, it is very innovative. This kind of theme is a bit risky but was mastered. in this story.
