The Phoenix Reckoning Reviews
Mostly lost interestSpoiler Alert.I have been reading this series from book 1 and can I say it is a major disappointment, and it does not at all have a feeling of a "rushed" book but rather several terrible plot decisions in or form of the author attempting to throw a twist.Bad plot decisions are as follows1. Rain reject Calvin's love, because she doesn't want to hurt him after she dies. - Utterly stupid, the whole premise that Calvin loves Rain because she instills hope in him sounds more like worship than love.2. Sarah goes with Shen and Tristan to reclaim Remus Nine...-Who cares about Remus Nine and this side plot. Sarah is still a one-dimensional character who is confused and Shen is just as confused and timid. I'm not in the least bit interested in seeing how that turns out, and Summers complaining about it doesn't justify the gaping stupidity of letting your 2 best officers go.3. Summer and Nimoux really? We hear the same age old them of Nimoux trying to resist Summers charm. We see Summers is slightly confused as to what she wants then after sleeping with Nimoux she's all.."oh no this is unprofessional we can't do this I have feelings for someone else"...and who might that be? Radain or Calvin but who cares, because Radain is kind of irredeemable at this point and Calvin is in love with Rain....whatever that means...4. Alex loses his mind before the Senate to no avail. No help to humans shows up against the dread fleet.5. Dread fleet is boring phalanx position of polarian ships making its shields impenetrable.Finally, this book lacks finesse of a well polished story. I hoped that the Author would give us more astrological information (just make it up) about the relative distances, and number of stars in the galaxy. What about other Galaxy? Had anyone tried going there? Really it suffers from what most sci-if authors are tending to do but what I can "small world" syndrome. The Milky Way has 100,000 billion stars.......your store sounds like it revolves around a small cluster of stars not an entire galaxy...and when you say galaxy it leaves the reader wanting more....and undelivered more.
I have no idea why I'm still reading this series. The story line is moderately interesting, I guess, but the writing and character development is just... so... bad.But I'm this far in, might as well read the last book.
Reckoning is the beginning of the end and the payout for faithful readers in huge. It is clear that Sanders had most, if not all, of the threads of Reckoning in hand since the beginning as in each major (and most minor) plot points appeared to naturally arise from the hints and character development of the past books. The romance was a bit much, and too graphic, for my tastes, but the overall plot was gripping and amazing! (view spoiler)[I especially loved Alex's story in this book, although I am still puzzled at his affection for Calvin and crew. (hide spoiler)] I can't wait to see how everything concludes!
