The RemnantS itself and Tebrey must fight against a seemingly unstoppable enemy to save not just himself the expedition and the woman he loves but his very soul Some things are worth dying for but it’s the things worth living for that matt. Could have been 4 star but character motivations and plot threads were annoyingly all over the placeReminded me of playing tabletop rpgs where things happened due to player actions and whims and these had to be bent into the plot and story after the fact The opening scenes are great but do lead you to think you are reading a certain kind of story only for the rest of the book to take you on a completely different pathA lot of the action seems to take place 'offscreen' and in recap infodumpsNevertheless I liked the plot and setting and have hopes for the rest of the seriesview spoiler May cause flashbacks for He ManBattlecat fans hide spoiler

Of his previous mission but things uickly begin to go wrong Someone or something is manipulating events to sabotage the expedition When the science team becomes marooned on the planet by the tides of war the sinister force reveal. I really enjoyed reading this book It has a clear direction there is nothing missing and nothing is superfluous Both the space and and planet side stories are well connected And when you think that you have it all figured out then the plot takes a pleasantly surprising twistMy only complaint is that there are too few pages; there are characters places and plot items that very well could bear having depth but that is just testament to the rich universe that is build And luckily there are books in the series

The Remnant review µ 103 ´ Lt Commander Hrothgar Tebrey finds himself assigned to an archaeological expedition as a military attaché because of his knowledge of alien technology It should have been an easy assignment light duty to recover from the disaster of his previous mission but things uickly begin to go wrong Someone or something is manipulating eveLt Commander Hrothgar Tebrey finds himself assigned to an archaeological expedition as a military attaché because of his knowledge of alien technology It should have been an easy assignment light duty to recover from the disaster. The book begins with the mystery of how a ship can be overtaken and boarded in hyperspace with the culprits disappearing and leaving only one nearly dead survivor The story then follows this survivor a special agent to his next duty after he recuperates The author is a great tale spinner and keeps you interested to the last page but the book itself has a few problems The formatting of the ebook is well done and pretty consistent; the first couple of chapters are the best written and really pull you in But after chapter 3 or 4 you start running into typos and a somewhat lower uality of writing In fact the uality of the writing varies throughout the book This doesn't mean that the writing is illiterate or hard to understand; it just means that the author should go through it again and produce a finished product There are consistent grammatical errors throughout mostly the common mis use of the word like which is distracting In addition the entire book needs to be edited to trim down the numerous redundant words and phrases especially in the dialog and the constant over explaining of things that are obvious These make this a far longer story than it needed to be Also the dialog itself often seems stilted and clumsy At other times it's very good Overall the book reads like a second or third draft not the finished product and if the author went through it a couple of times he could probably fix some of these and end up with a much better book perhaps even at the 4 or 5 star level As it is the story is fine and it's certainly rewarding enough for the time spent reading it If you like a worthy Science Fiction thriller and don't mind a few problems I recommend this book
