My latest reads…again.

Time for another my Latest Reads post to clean up some of my backlog of unreviewed books.

Standing Alone (Cast Adrift, #2) by Christopher G. Nuttall.
My rating: ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ out of 5 stars.

This book is the best one of this batch of books. It’s the continuation of Cast Adrift which is one of the few five star books I’ve read this year. This one is almost as good. The first one had a bit more of a wow factor. Perhaps because it was a new fresh story. In any case this, the second book, is also really good reading.

Unbearable Choices (Unplanned Princess, #9) by Michael Anderle.
My rating: ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ out of 5 stars.

I got a feeling that this book might be the conclusion to the series. If so it is probably a good time to end it. To me the series has become a bit stale. It is still good reading but it has fallen in the trap of just adding more and more sensation, powerful adversaries etc. Also, this prophecy crap didn’t really add much to the story.

Human Insanity (Rise of Terry Victor, #3) by Michael Anderle.
My rating: ⭐ ⭐ out of 5 stars.

The first two books had promise but this one, well it was pretty meh actually. It felt messy and the story was not really very interesting nor very plausible with this human augmentation bullshit. The series is called Rise of Terry Victor but I cannot say he is rising very much. He is not really doing much that did impress me in this book.

Guns and Attitude (Pain and Agony, #3) by Michael Anderle.
My rating: ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ out of 5 stars.

I really like Pain and Agony. They are seriously kick-ass, their dialogue is hilarious most of the time. This book had a rather cool beginning. I am a bit disappointed that their new secretary gave up that quickly though. She looked like she and her relation to Pain and Agony could turn into a somewhat hilarious distraction.

Anvil Dark (Backyard Starship, #3) by y J. N. ChaneyTerry Maggert.
My rating: ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ out of 5 stars.

A decent continuation of the series. Pretty average but enjoyable nonetheless.

A Battle Tune (Reincarnation of the Morrigan, #5) by Renée JaggérMichael Anderle.
My rating: ⭐ ⭐ out of 5 stars.

Quite a disappointment actually. I liked the first books. They were not wow great but quite good reads still. This one, not so much. Just a bunch of machinations, whining about Simon and never queuing him in on the full story, some more whining and a bunch of evil machination without any progress or clear direction.

Nomad Fleet (Rise of the Empire, #10) by Ivan Kal.
My rating: ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ out of 5 stars.

The weakest book so far in this otherwise very good series. I just didn’t feel as thrilled with this one. Maybe it’s just because I felt that the humans were actually taking a step back in this instalment. Still a decent read but I hope the next book jumps back up to the 4 to 5 star level that the previous books holds.

Well, that’s it for this time.
