Short and Sweet Book Reviews #27 – Visitor by C.J. Cherryh, Shattered Spear by Jack Campbell, Class Zero by Y.A. Marks
Visitor (A Foreigner Novel) by C.J. Cherry
So far there are 5 trilogies plus 2 more books in the Foreigner
series. Visitor looks like the second book in trilogy 6 but it reads like it could be the final volume. All of the familiar characters are back as the kyo arrive for a visit at Alpha Station. It is Bren’s job to learn why they came and what they want. I admit that I had a suspicion about who the kyo were at war with and it turns out I was right. Another interesting novel about how we are all alike and how we are all different. I do hope that there is another book to complete this trilogy.
Shattered Spear (The Lost Stars) by Jack Campbell
This is the final book in the Lost Stars series. It does end well but I will miss seeing how Iceni and Drakon. I have enjoyed the push pull of their relationship and how it plays into the action in the books. While many of the dangers that they have faced are removed in Shatters Spear not every thing is solved. Once again the story is full of fast packed action with a lot of tension thrown in. A very good ending to a fun series.
Class Zero (Class Zero Series #1) by Y.A. Marks
I like to add in some YA books now and then. Class Zero looked interesting so I requested and received it from Netgally. Paeton Washington is a interesting main character and the story is told from her point of view. All she wants to do is keep her head down and not have any trouble. Doesn’t happen and the way it develops keeps the story moving. There are some really great characters that along with Paeton drive the action. There is also a very sweet love story that is developing as Paeton’s life changes.
