Here s the thing about the entire series If you ve ever been a fan of sci fi movies or video games the pacing and plot development will be very familiar to you In the hands of a writer like Neal Stephenson this material would have been a million word saga And that s okay he does that really well Jason Hough writes the whole thing in damn near teleplay format he knows how to write visually how to set up light and sound and does it all with text Pretty slick I found some of his characterization a bitstock Sometimes predictable But fun Kinda wish he and Whedon would get together and do it as a miniseries Alan Tudyk could play Blackfield and wellNo spoilers I suppose Fun stuff Enjoyed reading all three EDIT Okay I m dropping a star I confess that everything in the above is truebut he shanked the ending I mean really shanked it I m not griping because I didn t like the content of the ending I did entirely What I don t like is that Hough clearly gave up There was definite call for a fourth book Instead he wrapped everything up in an epilogue and asked the reader to takewellpretty much every major plot point on faith It wasdisappointing All Night Long A Nannies Novel pacing and The Freeze Frame Revolution predictable But fun Kinda wish he and Whedon would get together and do it as a miniseries Alan Tudyk could The New York Review and Atheneum Magazine Vol 2 play Blackfield and wellNo spoilers I suppose Fun stuff Enjoyed reading all three EDIT Okay I m dropping a star I confess that everything in the above is truebut he shanked the ending I mean really shanked it I m not griping because I didn t like the content of the ending I did entirely What I don t like is that Hough clearly gave up There was definite call for a fourth book Instead he wrapped everything up in an epilogue and asked the reader to takewellpretty much every major His Christmas Cowgirl Wildflower Ranch #6 point on faith It wasdisappointing

The second book of the Dire Earth Cycle The Exodus Towers ended with a slow tense burn that continues into The Plague Forge Skyler Luiken the main character now shares the spotlight with Tania Sharma and Samantha Rinn and all are on separate missions to retrieve the last three alien artifacts to complete the puzzle on the alien Builders Key Ship Tania and Skyler s teams deal with the ever present threat of subhumans and the SUBS disease while Samantha within Darwin must steal the blue artifact from the cold and deadly Grillo and his Jacobites Initially I appreciated the way the Jacobites a cult based on Jacob s Ladder were unobtrusively incorporated into the story I m not fond of religious cults as authors often allow them to take up a lot of the plot with preaching and indoctrination In the previous book they did play a prominent role which continued here as the official Big BadTM but Hough did not bog the story down with their zealotry The Jacobites and their leader Grillo existed as our heroes foil and while they did attempt to indoctrinate a few people here and there it was not their prominent function within the plot Similarly the characters of Pablo and Vanessa Skyler s new crewmates served their plot function as efficient soldiers in Skyler s new crew but as actual characters I would have liked to see them be fleshed out I never gained a connection with them as I had with Skyler s original crew no matter how often Skyler referenced them as his crew Otherwise I really liked a lot of Hough s characters including some that were not meant to be liked such as the deplorable Russell Blackfield I ve really enjoyed the insight into his character When he was first introduced he was the evil despot but I loved that Hough allowed us to see of him as the trilogy progressed without merely turning into a bad guy to be destroyed or redeemed I respect that all the characters were very much flawed and the heroes weren t necessary likable while the evil despots weren t necessarily bad considering the circumstances And I loved that Hough was not afraid to kill his babies No one died needlessly but it certainly raised the stakes to realize that any of them could die at any time As this was the final book in the trilogy it meant that we finally get the answer to the uestion that hung over the entire story What the hell do the Builders want Of course the heroes would obtain the three artifacts and of course they would put the puzzle together and meet the Builders who were already on their way But when I finally got to the answer I was shocked by it and by the pithy perfection of its delivery It offered the closure I needed while opening an entirely exciting new door Don t walk into this expecting any sort of happy ending considering the devastation the Builders have caused but Hough left me with a bittersweet offer of hope and forgiveness that surprised me and left me in 2am tears With thanks to Netgalley and Del Rey Spectra for the

The Plague Forge Characters ☆ 9 E the last and one of the objects has already fallen into dangerous handsWill the survivors finally reveal the Builders' pl. is still shaken from the events in The Exodus Towers and he s also still a little conflicted about his feelings for Tania who risked her life to save his It turns out that the alien Builders have something else up their sleeves but what Skyler and Tania do know that they must find the remaining keys and they re hoping that the towers will lead them to the artifacts needed to complete the Builder puzzle They decide that two groups will go in search of the artifacts with Tania leading one and Skyler leading the other but Tania isn t an immune so she ll be limited in what she can do on the mission since exposure to any area beyond the auras that surround the space elevators could result in her contracting Substhe dreaded disease that has wiped out so much of the world s population and driven the rest mad Luckily the portable towers do provide protective auras but the danger is still great Meanwhile back in Nightcliff Samantha is having her own struggles with Grillo s fanatic Jacobites and her own part of the mission which is also to get one of the keys back to the Builder ship and hopefully save her friend Kelly from his clutches in the processThe danger level is as high as ever and it doesn t help that Tania must not only fight her way through hoardes of SUBS infected humans alongside Vanessa and Pablo but she s got to wear a protective suit to do it and Skyler and Ana are toting Russell Blackfield along with them ostensibly to help them with any and all info pertaining to Grillo and his operationI kind of love this series and if you re wondering there s just as much action as the first two books and twists than you can shake a shock stick at We also get to know Prumble uite a bit better as he s helping Sam out and that was an added bonus He s a bonafide hero guys Samantha is one of my favorite characters like ever and the scenes with her and Prumble are among my favorites Russell Blackfield was also a bit of a surprise this time around Hough gives him depth and even though he s still a jerk he finds himself in a uniue position during this mission and there may be a little hope of redemption even for a scoundrel like him Turns out he is actually capable of a little introspection Who knew Of course Hough loves to throw all kinds of obstacles at our heroes so there s plenty to thwart their efforts in getting those keys to the Builder ships between the infected and Grillo s goons Since this is the last in the series though the narrative must move toward solving the why of the Builders but it s not so straightforward as all that I was pleased and a little surprised at the ending in a good way and admittedly than a little sorry that the series ended The Dire Earth Cycle is the euivalent of a blockbuster action movie but with considerably depth and the books are certainly paced like one I had great fun with this series and I can t wait to find out what Jason Hough has in store for us next
