The Plague Forge (Dire Earth Cycle, #3)
Frank Hoppe's review
Oct 10, 2013
Potboiler only sparingly dispensing bits of the sci in sci-fi. The conclusion seemed tacked on at the end. It seems that the author feels confident in his skills for describing nonstop violent action over the course of three substantial volumes, leaving only 18 pages at the end for the "meaning" of the invasion. The explanation provided in these 18 pages seems like a set-up for the next volume. When Alan Cheuse first reviewed The Darwin Elevator on NPR, he claimed that it was the first of a projected nine volumes. Plague Forge concludes, I guess, the first trilogy in his series The Dire Earth Cycle. Having worked through these first three, I don't think I'm up for any more of this.
