The first of the trilogy is always going to be my favourite, but all the books are hella boss. Oh Foster, you crazy bio-nerd and your sociological ambitions.
After finishing Mission to Moulokin, I'm having trouble remembering anything that happens in The Deluge Drivers, because a lot happens here.

Icerigger was primarily an adventure story with some natives that just happened to be giant ice-skating cats with underarm webbing. This cover begs me to add 'pirates', but, alas, one book can't have everything. Mission begins with the Slanderskree carrying our human survivors and their friends to the Humanx Commonwealth outpost a year and a half after they
Alan Dean Foster must be more of an ideas man, because although an entertaining read, the writing in Mission to Moulokin did not live up to the plot.

There are great concepts here just crying out to be expanded upon ... yes, I know there's the final book in the trilogy I still need to read; however, the characters are two-dimensional and I didn't really feel any empathy for any of them. Foster tries to inject some character development with love interests (although he kills one love triangle only

The first book was 100x better than this one and if not for being an UberFan of the author, I'd skip #3. Unfortunately for me, I like to read EVERYTHING a fave author has written, even the bad ones like this. Ham handed,a plot that makes zero sense, a story ark that seems shoehorned in with the locating of the warm weather Tran. This was time I'll never get back. I'll give book 3 50 pages (one hour of reading) before I decide if for the first time I'll leave a series unfinished.

Such a huge disap

Better than the first one, in my opinion! The saga continued, with new characters and more adventures!
I loved the book, on the other hand it's really only a book a science fiction lover would enjoy, and you need to have read the first book in the series, to follow along. But other than that a real nice story.
Foster continued to keep me awake with the second installment. Was looking forward to finishing the triogy.

Not quite as good as the first, but still excellent.
Another Humanx book - Skua September is interesting....
