Elp you nderstand some of the relationships and rivalries much better than if you just dive into Span without having read the preceding storiesI think that David Carrico and Eric Flint did a truly wonderful job of continuing the story begun by Flint and the late KD Wentworth This book is extremely well written not surprising for writers of both Flint s and Carrico s abilities and it builds on the preceding two stories in ways that carry the whole series forward The Ekhat are developed in this book in ways that show just how alien and Le seigneur des anneaux : La communauté de L'anneau, tome 1 / Les deux tours, tome 2 / Le Retour du Roi, tome 3 unsane they are compared to humans Bynsane the authors don t mean insane by human standards Rather they mean that sanity for the Ekhat is so The History of the Future utterly different from what humans Jao and Lleix would recognize as sanity that the Ekhat cannot be viewed as either sane or insane The Ekhat are truly completely alien compared to humans Jao and Lleix In addition Flint and Carrico show how allies human Jao and Lleix can have bothnderstandable and comfortable relationships because of their shared cause goals and interests and have prickly Sanzoku Ou - King of Bandits Vol. 9 uncomfortable relationships because each race is alien to the other In my opinion one of the better points about this series is that alien species are truly alien in expected andnexpected ways and yet excluding the Ekhat there are characteristics of each species that common to humans Many of the major characters especially Caitlin Kralik "and Gabe Tully ndergo excellent development by the authors through both triumph and tragedy What I especially liked "Gabe Tully ndergo excellent development by the authors through both triumph and tragedy What I especially liked that the character of Caitlin Kralik develops as a leader not only by her successes but also by her failures from which she learns and grows Her character is very well developedContinuing an inside joke for Baen Books authors and readers the character of Joe Buckley appears about midway through the story and dies a predictably gruesome death near the end If you want to know about the Joe Buckley must die joke read the last three FA s at this linkOverall I enjoyed this book I couldn t Bitva na Hackhamské pláni (Hraničářův učeň: První roky, uite give it 5 stars I would have preferred to give it 45 stars because of minor issues with the climactic combat scene and because I don t believe that the new alien species that were encountered in this book wereite as well developed as aliens as they would have been had KD Wentworth written those species into existence Still I enjoyed the story and I plan to read it again just for sheer enjoyment If you are a science fiction fan who is new to this series I hope you will read all three books It is Kent Hrbeks Tales from the Minnesota Twins Dugout uite an enjoyable adventure across the galax.
