Runs right off a cliff. If you hoped this second entry would develop on the interesting world...you'd be wrong. Full of promise, the book throws its characters (and promise) out an airlock in one of the worst endings of any series I've read in a long time. Find your logos elsewhere and just run.
Lots of action, like its predecessor, but the whole story is literally a "run" and so gets really loooooong. One major good guy gets killed off, but being as the dead aren't at all out of the picture in this universe that's more poignant than annoying. And the story ends in a good place after all kinds of fights and massive explosions! Enjoyable if sort of exhausting.
This is one of the worst books I've read in years. The Dune books by Brian Herbert have a better voice than this. I love Dietz's Legion books, but the characters just are not believable, the motivations and actions read like a bad D&D game. The ending is I think where Dietz just pushes the whole project off a cliff and gives up.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this fast-paced adventure. Dietz' writing-style makes the entire experience feel a lot like watching a movie, and I mean that in a good way. I also like the fact that the main characters are not invincible and things don't always work out the way you would expect.
This book picked up right where Runner left off and continued the adventures of Jak Rebo and Lonni Norr. I would very much like to see the author return to these characters at some point in the future. It was a fun, quick read and the action never overshadowed the plot.
