I can’t say that I really disliked it but this book in the Frontiers Saga was not really my cup of tea. That’s primarily because, in this installment, the ship doesn’t really move an inch. It sits in orbit around Corinair throughout the entire book and most of the story revolves around guerrilla warfare down on the planet. What I liked about this book series and the previous three books in it was that it was indeed taking place on a space ship and there was some actual spaceship action. Thus having the Aurora immobilized the entire book wasn’t really what I had hoped for.

I really hope they get moving on refitting the ship with some nice new tech and gets back into the action in the next book. However, the ending in this book scares me a bit since it seems to leave the door wide open for further ventures into the realm of saboteurs, treachery and treason which I so despise. ( )

I quite enjoyed the fourth installment of the Frontiers Saga. The story becomes much more complicated, delving into the local politics of the Corinair planet. Brown takes his time with characters, events, and situations and lets us journey through the experiences with his lead characters.

I enjoy the coming of age story, I enjoy the space battles and tactics, and am quite enjoying the suspenseful drama. ( )
