The first book in this series started off with something fresh. However, this books pretty much brings us back to Saxon Andrews’ standard formula. That is, good civilization is threatened by evil one(s). Good civilization converts evil ones to the “right way” or kills them off. The process takes place at roller-coaster speed with new revelations and technological advances almost magically springing up every so often to save (most) of our heroes behinds. This is science fiction with 99% fiction and 1% science.

This is not really a bad thing. The way Saxon Andrws write it is quite likable and if you liked his previous books, which I did, then you will probably like this book. I have to say that I am a wee bit disappointed though. I had hoped that Saxon Andrews would evolve a bit with this new book series that seemed to start fresh. What I like the least with his formula is that he (too) quickly expands the story to involve hopping instantaneously between galaxies and battles are between millions and millions of ships. I do not want to complain too much though since I have seen many shows and read books where the producer/ author wanted to renew themselves and it all went downhill fast.

Anyway, as I said, I liked his other books and I do like this one. It is young adult reading for sure but it is really nice to sometimes wonder off in this direction and read these unbelievable, wonderfully heroic, and uncomplicated adventure stories. No silly politics, heroes are heroes, bad guys are really bad guys (until they are made to see the light) and the heroes do win at the end of the day (although with a few losses). It is like watching one of your favourite movies or TV-shows from when you were a kid. One that still is good that is.
