Though technically a standalone novel, this book is part of a larger story called the Infinite Timeline. Whilst very enjoyable on it's own, it's easier to understand having read the previous book in the series first, the details of which can be found on the author's website. There is a cosmic war being fought for the very survival of the human race, that very few know about. The only hope is a mismatched group of heroes. I won't give any of the story away, i don't want to spoil the essence of it for prospective readers. This is a fast paced sci-fi novel, with great characterisation, the interplay between them humourous, thoughtful and, at times, heart-warming. It's a wild ride from start to finish, going from laugh out loud funny, one minute, to emotionally charged and disturbing the next. I love this author's writing style, and this is a standout novel even for him. He has a singular skill to write with humanity and real heart, whilst still being able to create a narrative that keeps you turning the page from start to finish.
The Robinsonverse has come knocking, and the door has been busted wide open. From beginning to end this book takes you on an impossible journey. Impossible and fantastic and rip-roaring fun! With its own built-in soundtrack, you will finish this book, then want to start it all over again. Dark Horse is probably my all time favourite character. I want to enjoy a Sunday new music day with him:) Read this book, you will love it!!!
I was so excited for this book. I reread Exo Hunter, The Flux and The Others (all fantastic books in their own right) to be fully prepared and it did not disappoint. The man is a genius of funny, science fiction & awesome action. Read it!!!
Huge fan of the author and have read just about everything he has published. All I can say is WOW. I don't know how many WTF or NFW moments there where (I lost count) but when I got to the end of the book, I took a few breath's and just said WOW. If you are up all caught up with his other books, this is a must read. If you are on heart medication, you might want to keep a pill or two close by because this will get your heart racing with all of the action. There is also a lot of humor and easter eggs from other books, tv shows and movies. That is all I am going to say. Wow!
Had to read this one twice. Now bear with me. I grew up in the late 70's and survived the 80's. First time through reminded me of an acid trip. Things coming at me fast and hard. Wait!! I remember this, maybe not, oh yeah.....that book about the jelly dudes. But that guy wasn't in that book, and there's that horny old lady. No, that was the lady in Deadpool. No, she was in the one with the inner earth alien dude. But, now that I think about it the Deadpool lady is who i see in my head when I'm reading. Ok, nuff acid trip. Second time was more mellow, kinda like a half bag of mushrooms mellow. I remembered everyone and strapped in for the ride. But that little girl reminded me of the one time I took a little speed, OK maybe more than once, and had a blast with that little rainbow battle. So yeah, I just used my drug addled youth to review the book. Couldn't think of a better way. Been sober for awhile now but this book was fun. Non-stop from start to finish. (Highly ?) recommend. Now what to do. Maybe JR can give me a little hint as to what L-A- C-R-O-S-S stands for. If I could figure out that maybe I try to ghost write a novella giving Mr Blue a appropriate ending!!! :)
I’ve long considered Jeremy Robinson to be the Modern Day Master of Science Fiction. With this book, he even manages to ascend all the way up to Douglas Adams level scifi insanity – while, like Adams, making the insanity completely work within the tale he is telling here. I’m not going to ruin any of the surprises or the hilarities, because both are awesome and deserve to be experienced without warning. But truly, for those fans of Adams – and he is among the more popular science fiction writers *ever* with his Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy -… do yourself a favor and check this one out. Though this *is* one of the final books in Robinson’s “Infinite Timelines” Avengers Level Event, and thus you really do need to read at *bare* minimum Exo-Hunter first (as the story is told through the eyes of our hero from that tale), but also The Others and Flux, the other two books on this branch of the timeline. And as The Dark is referenced heavily, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to read that one before this one either. If you’ve done all of that though, you’re truly going to love how this book comes together – and you’re going to want to read them just so you can get to this book to see just how truly utterly insane (in the best possible ways) it really is. Very much recommended.
Before we get into the fine details let’s just say what blew my mind Dolphin-Fu… The Thing(references to a masterpiece)… Space Dinosaur.
If thouse 3 things didn’t blow your mind then sad to say you’ll be wrong because the first 10 pages are off your rocker action blaster time. Haas the story gives us an 80’s action hero intro into the Exo-Hunter team and there mission but this places in comparison to the story that unfolds into a Galatia mystery of death and genocide that require the forces of 3 different novels coming together to face from a journey to secret Soviet labs in Antarctic to a war torn giant aliens home-world.
It doesn’t become obvious at first but if you remember the concept art for the time Jeremy released a year ago another novel Was under this in the timeline chart and with with story points in the boooook it becomes obvious to the reader that there are actions happing off ch that will become more seen when see what the chacthers in the another group of 3 books where up to in there actions because of the galactic menace.
They’s two explained just a surface of why Jeremy Robinson is call the king of Kaiju thrillers even do there aren’t any Kaijus in the book but this just shows how great a writer he is to create a book series worth a motion blockbuster series in writing.
