Liberation – Good, fun action and finally some Jung ass-kicking

LiberationLiberation (The Frontiers Saga, #10) by Ryk Brown
My rating: 9 out of 10 stars

Heartfelt reunions with friends…
Desperate plans to gain advantage…
Opportunities that cannot be ignored…
Discovery of family once thought lost…

 

The time has come for Captain Scott to fight for that which was taken… the very freedom of the world he was sworn to protect.

This is yet another good, fun and action-filled book in The Frontiers Saga. The adventure continues from the last book and this time it is finally time for some Jung ass-kicking.

The book is true to the tradition of most books in this series in that there is plenty of action going on. Both on the ground and in space. Unfortunately being true to tradition also means that the Aurora is being shot to pieces…again! The author definitely has some Star Trek Voyager syndrome. I think this is the part that I like the least with these books. Either the author cripples the ship already at the start so that they can do nothing but sneak around trying to hide or he shoots it up completely.

Apart from that small gripe it was a very fun book to read. As stated before, this time the Jung is getting their behinds whooped although the price for this is rather high and at the end of the book we are far from the “end game”. The Ghatazhak are playing a not insignificant role in this book and I do like the Ghatazhak lieutenant quite a lot.

When not flying around whooping Jung behinds a lot of time is of course spent on trying to recover the Celestia and get her in a flyable state. Whether or not they succeed, well you just have to read the book if you want to know that.

As I wrote, we are far from any end game at the end of the book. The book does not end in a cliffhanger though. The events in the book come to a nice conclusion but you know how it is, winning one battle is not the same as winning the war.

Again I am looking forward to the next instalment in this series of good, simple and fun adventure books. Given the state of things on Aurora and on Earth at the end of the book I am quite interested to see where the story goes from here.
