remission praxis Reviews
This is fast paced, easy reading with some great set pieces and an amazing twist. Remission Praxis is for mature readers, I think the ‘hard hitting’ part of the description alludes to this, as it has a brutal and shocking scene on the disc that I found harrowing to read. The book is quite different to Redemption Protocol in that it plunges right in. On balance, I think I prefer the second book to the first, though it is a close call. I find the end an amazing idea, I am fascinated to see how the author handles it. The consciousness idea is again flirted with and I get the feeling this will become more central as the series goes on, which I would like to see.It’s a superb addition to what I have increasingly high hopes for as a series.
Having really enjoyed Redemption Protocol I was looking forward to Freeman's next offering with my fingers crossed that the standard of first book would be maintained. Happily this is the case with Remission Praxis proving a worthy sequel.As Freeman develops the characters further I find Weaver particularly endearing and really enjoyed the humorous exchanges between her and Havoc as their relationship develops. However my favorite character is the wonderful ship Commander O'Brien!The ending seemed to come much to soon and has left me in a real state of suspense. I have no idea where this series is heading but I am looking forward to finding out!
This is the second book in the author's Contact series, I enjoyed the first book it started with some fascinating alien discovery and ended with decent sci-fi action. This sequel is almost mirror of that with the action starting from the first page with the more interesting alien discovery coming near the end.For me the first book had a better balance between the two thread, it also mixed the human politics making for a more complex, but also more satisfying. This second book is a simpler affair as most of it comprises a battle for survival. The author writes the action well, so while it lacks some of depth evident in the first book it is an entertaining read.Things pick up towards the end and we learn a bit more about the alien race at the centre of the story and it's here that the book really shines. The action might be well written, but the more cerebral discoveries are a joy to read and I would have liked to have seen more of that. I've purchased the next book in the series so I'll soon find out!
Volume over substanceFirst, in the entire book there isn't a moment the characters are not in combat, not a moment. The result being, there really wasn't much plot development at all. In fact at the end of the book, you are at the exact same "cliff hanger" point as you were in book 1. The diss is attacking the ships in orbit, and Abbot is still on the loose.If you are really into written combat and don't care about the story this book is for you. Other folks, not so much.
