I can hardly overstate how much I have liked this book series. I was a bit hesitant after having read the first book in the series but I am really happy that I persisted. Out of the 14 books in the series 12 of them have received a 5 out of 5 star rating from me.
I have to say that I felt this book to be the weakest in the series so far. Captain Maddox and his friends are back and the good Captain is mostly as enjoyable as usual. Unfortunately it takes some time for the story to get going and the internal monologues of the sex starved pilot Keith was downright embarrassing.
Reconnaissance in Force is the continuation of Paying The Price but in a way it also starts a new story arc in The Empire of Bones Saga universe. In the last book our heroes finally came back home and even though they encountered a few issues that they had to solve with their usual application of sneakiness, technology and good old fashioned stuff that goes boom it felt like it kind of finished a first story arc. Once the dust settles we move over to this book where a new adventure starts.
In this installment of The Empire of Bones saga Jared, Kelsey & Co finally finds their way back home. It is a mixed homecoming though. Although this book sees a bit of a lull in the fight against the AIs Jared and Kelsey are forced to fight against internal enemies instead.
Here we go for another entertaining episode of The Empire of Bones saga. After the clusterfuck by the unbelievably incompetent Captain Breckenridge it is up to our friends to clean up the mess. This of course leads them into yet another adventure on yet another world of the former Terran Empire.
