Rate: 2/5 | Goodreads
Read Sungrazer by Jay Posey, second, and luckily, last book in the Outriders series, despite it having ended with direct line into the next one. It’s not out yet, and I feel no obligations to continue if it ever is.
About the Book: An autonomous AI warship, no crew, capable to commit chirurgical precision orbital strikes, basically a weapon in itself, disappears. And as it’s made to be untraceable – it’s the Outriders who’ll get the honors to find it. Following up on any lead, no matter how cold, unlikely, or dangerous. As, once again, planets worth of people are on the line.
My Opinion: Reads like American teenagers who loved their football and were about to join collage, but are now somehow adults in space military. That very specific and annoying stereotype, so very common in YA books, at least the older ones… Add that to the fact that there’s really not that much going on on the page as you read it, even someone, again, kidnapped is mostly just sitting there and thinking, trying to convey discomfort, poorly. Impossible made easy. Extraordinary made dull. It just lacked personality all through out.
At least it’s over, a 2 out of 5.
