Chris Bunch’s Star Risk, Ltd mercenary team is back and all I can say is, Thank God! After Bunch died in 2005 after publishing his fourth and presumably final Star Risk novel, it was a tough pill to swallow, apparently for a lot of people, so esteemed sci fi vet Steve Perry and his son Dal stepped up to the plate to write a fifth in the series in Bunch’s style and they did a damn good job, in my opinion.

Though this book gave us a conclusion to the series, Chris Bunch had passed before writing it and the Steve and Dal Perry writing sytle just did not fit with Bunch's.

The language and off color humor was toned down significantly and it felt that at times they were rushing the story just to be done with it.

Still a decent read, though Chris himself would have made it a whole lot better.

Overall, I loved the Star Risk series. Fun action, characters with witty dialogue, and lots of spaceships and blowing things up.

The author passed away so the 5 books are all we'll get. But the series ends on a high note and all loose ends are wrapped up.

I enjoyed this series. I was sad for it to end. The only reason I started this series was because Bunch's Last Legion series' ended.

Star Risk has been described as the A Team in Space. It is a pretty good description except Star Risk has no problem killing people.
