Review The Plague Forge

After discovering the first key in the wreckage of a crashed Builder ship Skyler Luiken and his crew follow the migrating a. Here s the thing about the entire series If you ve ever been a fan of sci fi movies or video games the pacing and plot development will be very familiar to you In the hands of a writer like Neal Stephenson this material would have been a million word saga And that s okay he does that really well Jason Hough writes the whole thing in damn near teleplay format he knows how to write visually how to set up light and sound and does it all with text Pretty slick I found some of his characterization a bitstock Sometimes predictable But fun Kinda wish he and Whedon would get together and do it as a miniseries Alan Tudyk could play Blackfield and wellNo spoilers I suppose Fun stuff Enjoyed reading all three EDIT Okay I m dropping a star I confess that everything in the above is truebut he shanked the ending I mean really shanked it I m not griping because I didn t like the content of the ending I did entirely What I don t like is that Hough clearly gave up There was definite call for a fourth book Instead he wrapped everything up in an epilogue and asked the reader to takewellpretty much every major plot point on faith It wasdisappointing

First of all I feel bad for The Plague Forge because this particular book had the dubious honor of competing for my time and energy with Dark Souls II Ouch Even my beloved Packers would have a hard time competing with Dark Souls II soAnyway I digress I often make fun of Baen book covers but who hasn t Secretly however any time I pass one in the bookstore I linger on it because it just looks so damn interesting The amount of lasers monsters explosions and scantily clad space heroines does its thing it gets my attention These goofy covers work so well that inevitably once a year I pick up a Baen book with the hope of being taken away on such ludicrous adventures And each year about a hundred pages in I put the book down never to be picked up again The reason I bring up covers is because well just look at the cover of this book Guns grit explosions pyramids overly groomed action heroes and it s all tinted in red RED I tell you Just in case you thought this was going to be a book of peace and harmony well it s red And so just as you d expect this book take the action from the previous two novels and cranks it all the way up Fortunately unlike the Baen books I ve attempted the kitschy covers for the Dire Earth Cycle are gateways to highly entertaining gun toting space romps around the world If these covers appeal to you admit it they do then you should read these books The plot of The Plague Forge explosion riddled as it is follows a variety of character and teams from the previous novels on their global uest to find the remaining Builder Keys and return them to the Builder ship parked in orbit Naturally things explode along the way Of all the plot threads by far my favorite was that of Sam and Prumble busting into the Nightcliff complex Even though the SUBS are interesting the chapters that pit the teams against other normal people are developed much better and have a lot punch If you ve read this far into the series you should know what to expect and this book does not disappoint A word about the ending I can see why some readers wanted Hough leaves a lot of uestions without answers but I really like that the plot revolved around the people rather than around the world building does that make sense It makes sense to me I can t imagine how Hough could have revealed too much about the Builders without a major info dump or without strangling the plot both of those options are bad btw The story is about the characters and their many explosions not about the Builders Besides because the ending is so nebulous Hough has opened many doors for other books in the universe He could write about Skyler and what happens after he ships out or he could introduce totally new characters who explore Builder related places ships events etc These ideas would make for great books and I would read them allI have thoroughly enjoyed this series and it continues to be very popular with my students Now the countdown begins to book number four

Potboiler only sparingly dispensing bits of the sci in sci fi The conclusion seemed tacked on at the end It seems that the author feels confident in his skills for describing nonstop violent action over the course of three substantial volumes leaving only 18 pages at the end for the meaning of the invasion The explanation provided in these 18 pages seems like a set up for the next volume When Alan Cheuse first reviewed The Darwin Elevator on NPR he claimed that it was the first of a projected nine volumes Plague Forge concludes I guess the first trilogy in his series The Dire Earth Cycle Having worked through these first three I don t think I m up for any of this
