Title: The Heart of Matter
Series: Odyssey One
Author: Evan Currie
Rating: 3.5 of 5 Stars
The crew of the Odyssey One are back at a homeworld of the Priminae, deepening political ties.
However, said world is attacked by the Drasin and the Odyssey chases off the spaceship portion of the attack and the Marines and other ground support crew deal with the ground invasion.
Lots of things are learned, such as how immense the super computer on the planet is, that the drasin are biological weapons tailored to wipe out the Priminae and that whoever the guiding hand behind the drasin are, they are apparently technologically exponentially beyond us.
Kickass action! I went in with a groan, because 500 pages seemed like an awful lot and I was sure there was going to be whine and angst and other such stuff-n-nonsense to pad things out.
Thankfully, I was wrong. The buildup was good, the action intense, the reveal predictable yet satisfying and in general I was satisfied. Overall, I am liking this series much more than the Hayden War Cycle/Warriors Wings series, as there is just a lot of action and that is what I expect from my SFF.
