All for All – Good book in the Cast Adrift series.

All for All (Cast Adrift, #3).
By Christopher G. Nuttall.
My rating ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ out of 5 stars.

Humanity has won a great victory, liberating their homeworld from the alien Pashtali and convincing many of the alien Great Powers that Earth is much more than a vassal state of a decaying empire, easy meat for the first invader who comes along. But the war is far from over. The Pashtali are gathering their forces, closing down their border wars with smaller powers while the greater ones sit on the sidelines, readying their navy for a final confrontation with Earth. The end cannot be long delayed.

There is one hope left. Allying themselves with the other smaller powers, the Solar Navy sets off on a final desperate campaign to break the aliens once and for all, or lose everything on the final throw of the dice.

This is another good book from one of my favorite authors, Christopher G. Nuttall.

It is the third book in the Cast Adrift series and with this book we arrive at somewhat of a conclusion of the current story arc. I say “somewhat” because the author does indeed leave some loose ends and hints as to there possibly be coming more books in this series.

However, in this book humanity does indeed resolve their most imminent problems and I dare say that it will not come as a surprise to anyone that this involves a fair amount of alien ass-kicking.

I have to say though that I felt this book, and the series, lost a bit of the wow factor compared to the first book. In the first and second book the humans were on constant advancement and were dealing surprise after surprise to the arrogant so called “Great Powers”.

In this book however, humanity is very much back to being a underdog and are undertaking desperate, last ditch efforts to turn the tide of war. It is still a good, very well written book but I just felt it was a bit more gloomy on the side of humanity that the previous ones.

Anyway, I quite liked the book and I do indeed hope the author will continue with a second story arc in this universe.
