    Heck of a ride!

    Pruden has saved the best for last (or at least the most recent). I read it quickly, mostly because I was reluctant to put it down. Another rollicking adventure, and my favorite of the series so far.

    Great story

    This third book in the series was well written and kept me reading to the end just to see what would happen next. It was full of action and craziness. And a bit of a treasure hunt. I loved the interactions of Kaine and the rest of the crew and his new allies as they try to save the human race. I liked the bit of twist hat shows up once or twice. Or was it three times. Just a great story that was a bit dark but so much fun to read.

    Is Earth Doomed?

    I was provided a copy of the book by the author. What follows in an honest review. I have read other books in the D. M. Pruden library. I had not read the previous ones in this series. While there are some holes in my reading of the book, they are filled in interestingly by the author for what I need to know. Kaine, in a previous story, had a choice to let an evil hoard of aliens attack or destroy the jump gates holding society together. In this book, he deals with the aftermath of his decision. While they have slowed the horde down, they have not stopped it, and it is slowly inching it's way across the galaxy and to earth as we know it. There is word of an alien weapon that could stop this advance, but the crew of the ship Scimitar must find a way to find the parts needed and join them with the parts on earth to put the weapon together back. Is the weapon going to doom them, or is it going to help them. The situation on earth is chaos. Political government of earth is in a shambles. One side wants to put the weapon together and the other side has it. I enjoyed the book. It held my interest well. There were enough places where what I thought would happen logically next, did not, but it was not out of the 'pull a rabbit out of a hat' type of thing. I recommend to all who like a good science fiction story. Nothing to hide from the kids in this one.

    Another Home Run

    The eagerly-awaited third book in Pruden's 'Shattered Empire' series is here. Hayden Kaine, the star of the series, is one of those characters whom trouble seems to seek out. These are not random troubles, but follow readily from the story's plot. From...well, I'm not going to give out any spoilers, but there is plenty of action to hold your interest and the writing is good. You could start the series from here, as there is enough information given -- but not so much to be obtrusive if you are familiar with the series -- but you might want to start with book 1 in the series, "Kaine's Sanction." But no matter where you start, I think you will be rewarded with a good read.
