Sten had fully expected to die in a blaze of glory, taking his Emperor's greatest foe with him. Instead he was a slave laborer in a POW camp deep in the heart of enemy territory. But sitting out the action had never been Sten's style. And now that the war was building to a climax, the Eternal Emperor needed him more than ever. Not even the toughest prison in the known univ ...more

This is the fifth entry in the "Schwarzenegger action movie in book form" Sten series, and it's getting kind of old. I was surprised, because this one clearly had Sten in a situation (POW) much more like the first book (fugitive). The story itself is interesting enough, but it's just not told well. Lots of things are written about passively, and lots of facts about the situation are just stated in a summarized way. It's kind of a dry military wit that I recognize from a friend of mine, and while ...more

It took me a while but I finally went back to continue the Sten series. This book, of course, continues where the last one left off which means Sten is stuck in a POW labor camp. Now, I do not like prison settings so it’s maybe not so surprising that I didn’t like this book as much as the previous ones.

Having said that, the book is still a quite good read. As the previous books it’s well written and Sten is Sten. This is the fifth book in the series though and some of the things that initially m

We shift from Spy to Investigator to Soldier to ... POW Movie for Sten. It's good fun, but feels more episodic than usual.



The Sten series continues, this time focused (A plot) on Sten and Kilgour being trapped in various POW labor camps, set against the backdrop of the Tahn War and its bloody Pacific Theater-esque meat grinder. There's fun and drama and action and adventure and humor and the usual high butcher's bill, as back in the Empire B plot) a cabal of promine

This was definitely my least favorite of the Sten books. Everything was just too convenient. Whenever a tough situation was encountered, the exact right tools were always on hand. There's an element of that in every Sten book, but it's really taken to a new level in this book.
Sten finds himself a slave laborer in a P.O.W. camp deep in the heart of enemy territory.

This is another one of my favorites from this series. I love the whole rebellion within the prison system, and sabotage under the noses of the authorities theme.

This book should be 3.5 stars

The Sten adventures continue is this volume set in a POW camp. A good addition to the series and a good lite read.
