"When the council that controlled the world spanning computer Mother fell out in civil war, it plunged the world in an instant from high-tech utopia to medieval nightmare. Critical to the little remaining technology that was left were the Helium Three reactors that powered the world-wide power grid. And the refueling ship that returned from the outer planets every five years." "With the ship on its way back for the five year rendezvous, every faction on the planet was hungry to capture the tanker, and the power that went with it." "Megan Travante, former slave girl, assassin and currently one of the thirteen super-powerful "Key Holders" that control the world-spanning computer network called Mother, has become deeply entrenched in the political infighting that characterizes the New Destiny capital. In that role she is swained by her "very close, personal, friend" Herzer Herrick, the Blood Lord's Blood Lord, who would much prefer to be splitting orc heads or riding dragons. He wouldn't mind so much if he was at least getting some." "When Herzer and Megan are trapped as replacements for the slaughtered first team, life becomes a nightmarish scramble to find qualified personnel and train and prepare for the toughest space-walk of all time. All while being assaulted by giant metallic scorpions and trying to resolve their "close, personal" differences."--BOOK JACKET.… (més)

The most sci-fi of the bunch. Imagine Space Cadet with swords and orcs.

Not the best of the series, but still solid. Ringo also shows his male character actually have heart and understand the difference between love an sex.

My big problem with this book was it didn't have any elves in it. I expected it given how the elf plot ended in the last book. Hopefully we'll see more in the future. ( )

Fourth in the series (and currently last, though the ending implies another installment), this installment was fun and fast-moving. Ringo specializes in military scifi, and he has the military part down pat. His interpersonal relationships are really poorly drawn (and ridiculous, and sometimes downright offensive) but he makes up for it with his depth of understanding about how the military operates, even when battling orcs in space. I wish there had been either a clearer description of the ship where the major battle takes place or a map, because the action is intricate and hard to follow in the absence of either. Also, I just took a master's level class in bioastronautics, and I'm pretty sure there are some important technical details that are incorrect. But there is a battle, in space, with orcs, so who am I to complain? Men will like this better than women, but I liked it too. ( )

This book didn't review well, but I thought it was ok. Its not the best book in the Council Wars series, but it is readable and has an interesting story. It doesn't wrap up the story line completely though, so I guess I'll have to wait for the next one to be written.

The battle for world domination continues, but at this point priority has shifted to a race for space. The side that can get to the incoming fuel shuttle and manage to retain control of its priceless cargo will have a better than even shot at gaining the upper hand. As always, Herzer's the go-to guy. With Megan and a few other familiar faces, teams are formed and training commences. Hard decisions will have to be made, and (as usual) not everyone will make it back alive.

No Bast, which was too bad, and this isn't the final chapter - too many loose ends still to be clipped. Hopefully, Ringo will continue the series soon, as it would be nice to know how things finally turn out. ( )
