This is a hard book to rate because the first third of this book is some of the worst crap I have ever read (see rant below for details). The rest of the book is passable with a pretty good ending. I like the set up so I forced myself to keep reading past the crap and will go on to the next book in the series.

The Rant [SPOILERS]:

The book starts really stupidly with 4 schmucks infiltrating a high security area by simply putting on women’s clothing and climbing in a helicopter. Never mind that tha

Another excellent story

Jake and his crew kick more bad guy and alien butt. The relationship stuff with all his girlfriends is a distraction at times.

Colonel Thomas is discovering that he is a very wanted man. While normally that would be a good thing considering his unusual relationship status, there are problems brewing that need his undivided attention. The ALICE-3 facility has gone off-line. Considering that the AL stands for Artificial Life the ALICE's are concerned about their sister, however ALICE 1 has informed Jake there is a greater reason to be concerned. However, because of the special nature of the facility Jake as the last survi ...more

If Alice-9 didn't end up the way I predicted I would have been disappointed, but I wasn't. More of the same from book one, just more in outer space. You know, children are our future, but we need energy to get us there. A lot of problems can be solved if we have a cheap portable endless power source. To infinity and beyond!

Looking forward to the next!

In just these two books I have seen the author improve greatly. I hope to encourage this, as I'm looking forward to the next ALICE.

Merged review:

What is next?

I refuse to post spoilers, but have enjoyed this series. Hopefully, the next will be available soon. I am waiting...

A good story

Good book, but unlike the first book the first half was a bit boring. It did pick up and get to the point where you didn't want to stop reading. Of course, our hero, Jake returns and is just that a hero, a living legend in everyone's eyes. Worth the read. Looking forward to the third book.

Good story telling gets better...

Charles Lamb alternate universe is filling out into a modestly grand sci-fi gem as he continues his tale. The plotline is losing its rough edges, becoming an smoothly enjoyable yarn for the reader. I am looking forward to seeing how Mr. Lamb takes his characters into future stories.

Great story well polished. a whirlwind story that i couldnt put down. I love the surprise elements to this story. there was a few loose ends but i guess will have to wait for the next book to see where they lead.

Shelves: science-fiction
Good Sci Fi but sort of sexist very much so the hero has a harem of 8 women and 8 artificial intelligences that worship him. Sexism aside it is still a well written book with much to offer the fans of military science fiction.

Alice 9 is a great read

Alice 9 is a great read! The setting is earth future. The earth was attacked a century and a half in the past. The human race is slowly recovering and has been attacked again. A great story of survival and defense.

3.6 stars. Overall, a good read and an interesting premise. The only negative is that the story is too clean, somewhat like Star Trek The Next Generation, where you would never see a dirty engineer. The story could use a bit more grit.

The editing needs work and sometimes the author seems to get tied down in minutiae but over all a decent series. The next book should pay off several of the story lines that have been planted so far.

The mind over , the computer

First it's the story, then it's the plot, this makes a greater storyline to me. I really like this book, but you have to read book one first. It will give you the plotting of the books.

A great Space Opera continues

Alice 9 is a terrific sequel to the original. The story progresses well with great detail and interesting developments. Alice 9 was thoroughly enjoyable. I can't wait for the next episode.

A 4.6 stars, not a 5

I cannot believe the author has not made Sarah pregnant. I can't believe it and what happened with the romantic life with Sarah and Jake? To much explanation on some subjects and not enough on some. Sarah needs a kid.

Will there be more Charles Lamb?

A thrilling cliffhanger ending! Leaving a lot of questions unanswered. And hopefully will be answered soon. Thank you for writing.

Good reading

I enjoyed this book. Be sure to read Alice before Alice 9. Not too sure the ladies will enjoy, but the male readers will....

Great followup to the first book, but the author REALLY needs to find a few Proofreaders.

Fast paced story that keeps the reader engaged through out. It's based on standard military theory though and could be more creative in that area.
