Why even bother with a synopsis for this series? You’re not going to start with this book and by now, you already know what is happening: World War II on a fantasy world, ie Alt-History.
This book went way up and way down for me. A couple of times I was ready to lay it down and quit the series. Mainly because Anderson is just working this for every detail that he can. I skipped whole pages as he described an officer on a boat/ship describe everything he saw as he made a tour.
Boat porn doesn’t work for me.
Then there were the times where the action was just so awesome that I was almost pumping my fist in the air. The fighting is great, just not all the strategizing and expansion of the war.
I just want to know when the end of this series is happening. I’ll gladly stick around until then, but I need to know. I can’t keep supporting this forever. And that is why I dropped this another 1/2 star. I feel like I’m being milked.
Rating: 3.5 of 5 Stars
