The Plague Forge by Jason M. Hough
What Goodreads says:
"After discovering the first key in the wreckage of a crashed Builder ship, Skyler Luiken and his crew follow the migrating aura towers in search of the four remaining relics. But time is running out: the team learn that the next Builder event will be the last, and one of the objects has already fallen into dangerous hands...Will the survivors finally reveal the Builders' plan?"
That is a very short paragraph describing the action in The Plague Forge, book three in the Dire Earth Cycle and yet it says it all. There was not that much substance in the third book.
The book followed various characters from the previous books as they retrieved the keys for the Builder’s ships. While each team faced unique challenges after awhile each one sounded a lot alike. This is worth reading if you have followed the first two books but otherwise you can skip The Plague Forge. The ending was not what I expected. They did find out what the Builder’s wanted and it may set up a new series but for me it was a bit of a disappointment.
Del Rey published The Plague Forge by Jason M. Hough in 2013.I received an ARC of The Plague Forge from Netgalley.
