My rating: 5 of 5 stars
From Captain to Oracle to Imperial advisor Arla plays many roles to stave off the extinction of her species (humans). Meanwhile we get some exciting glimpses into some robot point of view chapters as a band of rusty renegades get repaired.
ACE becomes somewhat of a flat villain and some options go unexplored and some loose ends are left hanging, some characters think out of character thoughts thinking things they couldn’t possibly know about. But for a self published book it is pretty good.
The ending is good, I think that may be are of the main things going for him, he has excellent endings, they give a sense of resolve and peace, while the epilogues provide the cliff hangers that leave you yearning for more.
