Reading progress update: I've read 70%.
End Game: Fallen Empire, Book 8 - Lindsay Buroker

"Alisa looked wistfully in the direction Leonidas had gone, wishing Jelena would approach him at some point. She felt certain that he would volunteer an arm as sturdy as a metal bar for gymnastics purposes."



(I'd credit the artist but I've been unable to track this pic to the original source.  It's fan art for the Mass Effect game, but I thought it fit well here.)


I am enjoying this final installment of the series, but reading is bittersweet because it brings me closer to the end and it'll be OVER!  I can see this series becoming one of my comfort re-reads, characters that start to feel like friends.


There's action here, but this one also brings us closer to some real heart, with the relationship between Alisa, Leonidas, and Jelena.

Relic of Sorrows: Fallen Empire, Book 4 - Lindsay Buroker

I noticed one reader call these books "Sci Fi Crack" and I can't really disagree.  They're a lot of fun, strong on character and action, and the plot is pretty good.  Sure they get into tons of messes, and some due to decisions we might roll our eyes at a bit, but it's fun so who cares?


One thing I like is that the "bad guys" are usually not just purely bad, but have understandable motivations, are often not really bad people, there's just a lot of conflict arsing out of conflicting loyalties and an unstable political situation.


I also like the fact that although there is a bit of romance simmering, it's slow burn and not the main plot, or even a major part of the plot.  Just one of the many personal dynamics among a varied cast of characters.


Overall, these books aren't deep literature, nor hard core sciencey sci-fi, but great entertainment, with characters to root for.  My cup of tea.

Honor's Flight
Honor's Flight: Fallen Empire, Book 2 - Lindsay Buroker

Kindle version ends at 85%. However, since what is included after that is the short story

Starfall Station (Fallen Empire #2.5), which is a direct continuation of their story, I think that's perfectly fine in this case.

“It’s possible he has an inordinately high opinion of himself,” Alejandro said.

“I just assumed he had an inordinately low opinion of Beck.”
“That is also possible.”
“Usually,” Leonidas said, “people talk about me behind my back, and I’m forced to use my enhanced auditory faculty to hear what disreputable things they’re saying about me.”
“We didn’t want you to strain yourself,” Alisa said.

They crack me up.
