Shattered Spear The Lost Stars #4 The New York Times bestselling author of The Lost Fleet returns to the “strong saga” of a rebellion against a totalitarian regime and the determination of two people to create a better future in the farthest reaches of the colonized galaxy    The Syndicate Worlds continue to splinter as star systems pledge allegiance to President Gwen Iceni General Artur Drakon and the new government they’re establishing at Midway But the toxic legacy of Syndicate rule continues to undermine their efforts as the rebels encounter difficulty trusting one another and believing their new leaders’ promises of freedom from tyranny   Before Iceni and Drakon can put their house in order they must deal with an even greater threat An enigma warship has appeared and vanished near a Syndic colony If the aliens are  capable of jumping into other human occupied star systems then billions of people could be vulnerable to a hostile invasion fleet anywhere they choose to strike   But an even greater vulnerability lies with Iceni and Drakon as a once trusted adviser turned saboteur plans revenge   Genre Go Round Reviews Shattered Spear is the fourth book in Campbell’s Lost Stars series a spinoff from his Lost Fleet series Led by President Iceni and General Drakon the Midway star system continues to consolidate its rebellion against the Syndicate Worlds The threat of those Syndicate Worlds is compounded by the hostile alien Enigmas setting up a new base in a neighbouring star system and the appearance of an apparently hostile warlord in the next system over from thatWith the Midway space fleet now much established the emphasis of this book has moved towards Space Opera with ground based operations only making a relatively minor contribution to the story This is once again good intelligent military science fiction but sadly it really felt very much like just of the same with constant reminders of how different everything is compared with the days of Syndicate rule and constant trust issues between the main protagonists somewhat alleviated by some interestingly different space actions including one involving four different groups each hostile to all the others It is still an enjoyable read but the lack of variety means I may shortly draw a line under these books and I’ll probably not move on to the preuel series Campbell has now started set during the early days of the Alliance A wonderful ending to a very enjoyable series I enjoyed the characters watching them grow learn and dare over the series So much action Now I must wait for the next book in his Young Adult series Pillars of Reality which appears on the face of it to be fantasy but which I have decided is a blend of fantasy and science fiction or perhaps simply disguised science fiction It is however uite addictive and has two ? books left in the series It would seem that I am always waiting for a book by Jack Campbellor whatever he chooses to call himself His books are devourable Is that a word? This has been a good series but it's getting a bit long in the tooth Lots unnecessary references to past events that are not relevant to the current story arc and the characters and stories themselves aren't as good as in days gone by I think this is the last book in the Lost Star series I hate to think this is the end Between the Lost Fleet series and the Lost Star series the characters have absorbed me into their world and I do not want to leave them The books in the series must be read in order to fully understand the story lineMidway Star system is facing multiple threats not only from the Syndicate Worlds but from a female pirate who has taken over three neighboring worlds and hates Gwen Iceni and from a former Syndicate CEO who was a POW that Iceni has released and sent to a neighboring star system But the greatest of all is the return of the “Enigma”Campbell continues to introduce new characters to the story Needless to say the book is well written I just could not put the book down so read it in one sitting Campbell has provided the reader with a number of exciting space battles and one ground battle Campbell is a master in writing space battles In this book we now have some romance between two couples; I am not going to reveal the details Campbell steadily ties all the various strands of the story and brings them all together at the end of the book but I still want I read this as an audiobook downloaded from Audible Marc Vietor has done an excellent job narrating this series
