    This is the fifth entry in the "Schwarzenegger action movie in book form" Sten series, and it's getting kind of old. I was surprised, because this one clearly had Sten in a situation (POW) much more like the first book (fugitive). The story itself is interesting enough, but it's just not told well. Lots of things are written about passively, and lots of facts about the situation are just stated in a summarized way. It's kind of a dry military wit that I recognize from a friend of mine, and while it's funny enough in small bits in conversation, it gets old when used to carry a whole book's worth of plot.Other than that, it's more special assignments that only a super action man like Sten can handle, more incomprehensible Scottish accent from his sidekick, and more references to Oregon (yay!) in a novel set far elsewhere in the galaxy. Oh, and this one has a semi-significant character named Sorensen!

    It took me a while but I finally went back to continue the Sten series. This book, of course, continues where the last one left off which means Sten is stuck in a POW labor camp. Now, I do not like prison settings so it’s maybe not so surprising that I didn’t like this book as much as the previous ones.Having said that, the book is still a quite good read. As the previous books it’s well written and Sten is Sten. This is the fifth book in the series though and some of the things that initially made me like the series seem to be fading a bit. The books have gone from following the rising star of Sten to be more and more about politics and conspiracies.It didn’t help that the author put one of my favorite characters, the emperor, on the chopping block so to say (given that the books have been out for a while and that the blurb on the next one is pretty explicit about the destiny of the emperor I don’t think this can be said to be much of a spoiler).Anyway, as I said a good solid read in the Sten series and if you don’t mind the prison setting in the first half of the book then you’ll probably like it more than I did as well.

    We shift from Spy to Investigator to Soldier to ... POW Movie for Sten. It's good fun, but feels more episodic than usual.---------PREVIOUSLY (Oct 2012)The Sten series continues, this time focused (A plot) on Sten and Kilgour being trapped in various POW labor camps, set against the backdrop of the Tahn War and its bloody Pacific Theater-esque meat grinder. There's fun and drama and action and adventure and humor and the usual high butcher's bill, as back in the Empire B plot) a cabal of prominent industrialists plans the assassination of the Emperor so as to consolidate the power they've gained during the conflict.Cole and Bunch have hit their stride here, beginning to play on plotlines and themes that will carry them through the rest of this 8-book series.

    This was definitely my least favorite of the Sten books. Everything was just too convenient. Whenever a tough situation was encountered, the exact right tools were always on hand. There's an element of that in every Sten book, but it's really taken to a new level in this book.

    Sten finds himself a slave laborer in a P.O.W. camp deep in the heart of enemy territory.This is another one of my favorites from this series. I love the whole rebellion within the prison system, and sabotage under the noses of the authorities theme.

    This book should be 3.5 stars The Sten adventures continue is this volume set in a POW camp. A good addition to the series and a good lite read.
