My rating: 4 of 5 stars
In Rescue, the continuing story of the Earth/Pentarus Alliance gets a bit of resolution. The previous episode drops you unexpectedly into the future of the series. It whips you around, and keeps you wondering what happens next. THIS episode ties all the ‘but how did that come about’ questions right up with a nice little bow! It is mostly flashback, but the stage is also set for the the future. And, as a reward for your history lesson, that last chapter is a signature, Ryk Brown, kick-ass and screw the names kind of fight!
I probably should have been more emotional at certain points of this book, but for some reason I just didn’t feel it. I think it’s just me and my current mindset right now, because there are some intense scenes and events in this one. From reading the previous episode, you know the outcome, but the ‘getting there’ is still a heck of a ride! There were times that I was almost sure I was about to find out there was a secret within a secret, but it ended up not being that way. Even so, I can’t say there’s any disappointment. Read it, and you will see what I mean.
I give this episode of the extraordinary Frontiers Saga four stars and call it an Awesome Read!
