I am really trying to stay positive. I started the series and like to see things through to the end. But I have not been able to force myself to continue reading this book in a couple of months.
Update: just could not finish it. And I don't regret that.

Can this series get any worse?
1 Apr 2012

It seems that the titles of these books are beginning to become as bad as the books themselves. In a way after the forth book they did not really get much worse, but they didn't get much better either. As has been mentioned numerous times, the bad guy Soltan Gris has no redeemable features about him and the good guy, Jethro, is simply too good to be believable. Not only that but he is an incredibly talented character (almost a little too talented for some...more

Same old piece of crap! Another 6th book of the so called Science Fiction Dekalogy! But as I have mentioned on my previous Mission Earth reviews; I still want to finish this shitty series no matter how bad it is! Just like the other not so wanted books that I've read before. Now I know why there's a bunch of this 10 series books on the loads of second hand book store.
Take all ten of these books and boil 'em down all night... no, leave it on the burner for a whole week. Reduce it too a thick dense sticky sauce. And still, this will have very little flavour.

There was the seed of a decent parody in there within the first two books then the joke was over. The joke became, "...let's make it ten books, just to make it a "dekalogy".

when I read this, I thought I was the main character.. not Jethro Heller but the evil Soltan Gris.

I don't why I always identified with him, since he is really a slimy bastard of a guy, perhaps its because he was always an underdog so I identified with him.
Totally strange but I was seriously annoyed when I realized I had reached the end of the book. I have to rush out and get book 7. =/ Hehe. =)
At this point, finishing the series became something I was forcing myself to do. What makes a good science fiction novel? If you answered 'lots and lots of necrophilia', then you're wrong. So, so wrong.

I don't like this story, but I hate leaving a series unfinished. I know that I will read the last four books, but I will regret it.
Great Series of Science Fiction novels.
