It sucked Horribly the writingThe writing didn t improve an inch It remained excessively detailed I swear, if a character went to the restroom to take a dump, the scene would have lasted FIVE full pages Then, in the next chapter the character would still be shitting and it wouldn t be because of constipation It didn t matter if there was action, which the book had a lot, the pace moved like

It didn t matter if there was action, which the book had a lot, the pace moved like molasses I had less patience for book 3 than for book 2 so I skimmedI skimmed a lot You know it s a bad book when you re skimming the action scenes the charactersI ceased caring for Skyler He did improve from book 1 He did less angsting anddoing Nevertheless, the character growth was nowhere enough for me to give a fuck whether the protag lived or died Tania, the second protag, improved a lot from the annoying as fuck damsel in distress she was in book 1 However, she regressed a bunch in book 3 by obsessing over Skyler It was annoying enough to watch unrequited love from Skyler s side towards Tania, it was doubly annoying to watch it from Tania s side towards Skyler The non communication suffocated me Add in Ana, Skyler s current girlfriend, and a stinky love triangle exploded in my face I felt bad for Ana because she loved Skyler but Skyler didn t love her as much, not as much as he secretly loved Tania Honestly, the only reason I believe the two women loved Skyler was because he was the hero of the story and it s standard for heroes to havethan one love interest In other words, the romance was forced and superficial.The love triangle grated on my nerves Tania and Ana seemed to be defined by their love for Skyler At least with Tania, she was a protag of her own and had a life outside of Skyler Though Ana was promoted from a minor character in book 2 to a major character in book 3, she existed solely as Skyler s sidekick Without Skyler, she would have faded completely to the background Thankfully, relief came in the middle of the big book when shit was so important that they couldn t afford the luxury of even a minute to obsess over Skyler It was also depressing that it took that long and that much Samantha, the one major female character who wasn t a love interest of Skyler s, ceased to be my favorite character I still liked her, which is hugelythan I feel for Skyler, but she wasn t doing anything that I thought was important shit All she did was run, hide, and fight It was pretty entertaining in book 1 But as the series progressed, it became boring She didn t really serve a big role except to be one of the good guys for Skyler to save As for the villains, one of them disappointed me greatly Blackfield broke character by performing a heroic act After all that animosity and fighting against our good guys, suddenly he decided to help them towards the end because of, ew, altruism No I didn t buy it I didn t buy the reason given that Blackfield was varying the pattern, his motto of acting unpredictably to win There s a thick line between acting unpredictably and acting altruistically, forgetting the fact that you re a despicable villain What he should have done was backstab our good guys and survive like the cockroach of a person that he was As for Grillo, the other villain, he frustrated me, but it was in the sense that he was a great villain and he was kicking our good guys ass He didn t disappoint me as it was the good guys who disappointed me because they couldn t match him in war What few victories the good guys gained were by luck in my opinion the endingThe ending was the worst offender of the book and overall, the series It was rushed It had dei ex machina To add insult to injury, the epilogue was a letter addressed to the reader, telling the reader everything in one fat infodump By everything, I mean all the things the book withheld from the reader The reader learned about the reasons behind the apocalypse on Earth, the apocalypse in a galactic empire, the aliens mission, and the characters next adventure The epilogue revealed the entire series as a prelude to the real story where the characters will fight supposedly evil aliens in a galactic war A FUCKING PRELUDE Why the fuck was this series not that story My feelings were confirmed in a Goodreads review which said that this trilogy was the first of three trilogies facepalm I doubt that will happen if I have learned anything about series, sales, and publishers ConclusionI rate The Plague Forge 1 star for I didn t like it My only consolation was that I skimmed and the books were free courtesy of the very nice publisher humoring my requests This series was essentially an unnecessarily expanded to the extreme version of those prequel short stories you often see in Young Adult series.If you read book 1 and didn t care for it but have a compulsion like me to know what happen at the end, read book 3 s epilogue It s the only chapter that matters Review of book 1 The Darwin ElevatorReview of book 2 The Exodus Towers Here s the thing about the entire series If you ve ever been a fan of sci fi movies or video games, the pacing and plot development will be very familiar to you In the hands of a writer like Neal Stephenson, this material would have been a million word saga And that s okay he does that really well Jason Hough writes the whole thing in damn near teleplay format he knows how to write visually, how to set up light and sound and does it all with text Pretty slick I found some of his charac Here s the thing about the

play Blackfield and wellNo spoilers, I suppose Fun stuff Enjoyed reading all three EDIT Okay I m dropping a star I confess that everything in the above is true.but he shanked the ending I mean, really shanked it I m not griping because I didn t like the content of the ending I did, entirely What I don t like is that Hough clearly gave up There was definite call for a fourth book Instead, he wrapped everything up in an epilogue and asked the reader to take well pretty much every major plot point on faith It was.disappointing Click Picture to Enter Giveaway Post Tome Tender GiveawayEnter to winThe
