The Ember War (The Ember War Saga, #1)
Eric Allen's review
Jun 04, 2016
A thoroughly adequate and by the numbers military sci-fi book that doesn't really bring anything new to the table, stretch any bounds, clear any hurdles, or really do anything that I haven't read in a dozen and one military sci-fi books I can name just off the top of my head right now. Not bad, just kind of generic. If you really want me to sing your praises, you've got to do something a bit more original with the genre than this. I felt like I was reading a novelization of the first episode of the Battlestar Galactica remake through most of the book. So, uh, instead of reading this book, go Netflix Battlestar Galactica, because that series was awesome, despite it's non-ending. This one, eh, I'll give it another book to get its act together and pull itself out of Mehsville. Audible is selling both books as a single audiobook atm, so I might as well.

I dont know why people hated the end of BSG. It was perfect in my eyes.

I didn't hate the ending, it had a lot of good parts in it, but as the resolution of the entire series, it fell a little short in my eyes. Such an incredible series needed an incredible ending, and the ending it got was just sort of adequate. Like Lost, it had so many mysteries, unanswered questions, and loose plot threads that it just couldn't address them all in a satisfactory manner, and it just sort of felt like the show-runners hand-waved a lot of the resolution away and hoped we wouldn't notice what they were doing.

Yeah. Ending was okay, but it didn't do justice to the show it had preceded. Still, could've been worse *cough*dexter
