The last book in the series was, unfortunately, this reader’s least favorite, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a real gem. The reality of the series ending was saddening and expectations tend to be very high as a story culminates to its final chapters. Regardless, every series must conclude and writers must reveal the ultimate purpose for their character’s life. And for Fly and Arlene, it is only to be cursed by the fate of one of the two literary schools of galactic criticism, which debate the be ...more

Based on the video game series, but only as a jumping off point (which makes sense since the video game had an extremely simple plot).

Rather than "demons" they're aliens, and the whole situation of Earth is actually a very small conflict, almost insignificant to a greater multi-galaxy war. Interesting idea.

I was probably too young to read it at the time, but it did inspire me to be able to read more complex books.

WTF about sums it up. Again, its a decent read but its taken the odd tangent of book 3 and has run with it. By this point the book has almost no common threads with the first few books, or the source material.
It's like the author was instructed to wring a few more drops out of the already pretty depleted series, and to conclude it with the strangest things he could think of.

Just kind of strange. Very much a sci-fi fantasy book and goes way the hell off into left field relative to the prior action-filled romps. Though thats not necessarily a bad thing.

The last book in the series. Flynn and Arlene have arrived at the homeworld of the Freds, only to find that their greatest enemies have been wiped out by a fast-evolving race dubbed 'Newbies'. They find humanity already at war with the new species, but everything is not quite as it seems. In an effort to return to earth, the two marines discover that the Newbies are more devious than they think.

I enjoyed the last book - it had a sense of humour, even though the ending left you hanging just a bi

Awful. Just awful.

I have spent so many hours on the video game I was wondering what the background story may be. Was not even aware there were books on doom. Thanks to ebay I bought the lot cheap. Usually I don't read to much science fiction. I thought they were ok. Books 1 and 2 kind of explained what happen in the game. # and 4 took it much further. Not a bad light read.

Despite the story seeming a little bit artificial, it did catch on my imagination and was interesting till the very end, where it was left a bit more open than my taste would like.

No better title for what sums up the story. If you are buying this POS then it is endgame for your taste in books. This work should have been stillborn as it does nothing for the story or characters and even leaves off on a unfinished cliffhanger. Avoid at all costs

Did you like the videogames? You'll probably enjoy the books. Are you looking for a serious read? Look elsewhere. These books are a goofy romp in the Doom universe that I enjoyed reading.
