Ly did not hold back when it came to sacrifices and such Personally I thought Polaris was even better than AvalonPolaris begins at a fast pace in with Jeth and the crew are fleeing from Wainright and the ITA Within chapters f the story starting someone crucial is dead Jeth struggles to regroup his team and move forward But then Jeth the crew and Avalon are captured by Dax a new crime lord who has made a deal with Marian Seagrave Jeth s mother Jeth has to work with Dax in DIY Projects for the Self-Sufficient Homeowner: 25 Ways to Build a Self-Reliant Lifestyle order to protect his family and friends but it will cost him dearlyTo be honest I didn t remember a lotf specific things that happened in Avalon and I thought that would be an issue but it wasn t If you don t recall events in the first book that s totally kay Arnett makes it easy for us by either prepping us in the beginning f Polaris with details we need to know r by continuing the story without us needing to know much from Avalon It was easy to slip right into the action f PolarisThe story was not stop action There is the book s action and there is the series s action which crossed Dead Man Riding (Nell Bray, over and tied things together I was hoping the conflict with Empyria would have been centralized in this novel but saving Marian and not giving Dax what he wanted were important too There are a lotf new characters in this book so that allows for tons f crazy action and scheming and potential betrayals and whatnotI love science fiction and this bookseries is heavily science based However it s not so much that the average reader will feel verwhelmed r lost in the science Arnett does a great job f keeping things simple but making sure there are explanations to the science Pontius Pilate of this worldJeth has a lotf internal struggling in this book Implants are kind Livin de Life of a huge thing in the series Once you have an implant the person with the master implant can basically control you And you re connected to everyone else who has an implant so everyone can hear and see your thoughts Jeth struggles with being able to control himself and his thoughts if he were to follow through with Dax and his mother s crazy plan In the end we know he is going to have to make a huge choice and he does The romance is there but it s not important Like if you re hoping for a steamyr slow burn Aeralis or hot romance you re not going to get that in this series I like the romance in this series but it s not steamyr anything No insta love and no love triangle though ALSO I like the romance because the characters aren t professing their undying love for each Be CentsAble: How to Cut Your Household Budget in Half other like lovesick idiots Which I likedOverall I liked this book a lot I was terrifiedf certain things happening and some Academic Inbreeding and Mobility in Higher Education: Global Perspectives of them happened and I was pleased byther things happened and I was sad because Radio Crackling, Radio Gone of the deaths There wasne particular loss that crushed me but I understand why Arnett did it The ending The Legend of Joaquin Murrieta: California's Gold Rush Bandit overall is pretty satisfying Not bittersweetWhat I Did Not LikeI mentioned earlier in my review I had hoped for about the Pyreans that Empyria would be centralized in this book It doesn t really pick up speed until the last 20%r so I feel like there are certain things leading up to Empyria but I wanted It s hard to describe what I m trying to convey Perhaps Arnett did it perfectly and I have no idea what I m saying I just feel like I wanted in terms Limey Gumshoe of Empyriathe PyreansWould I Recommend ItI liked this book a lot as well as Avalon so I would highly recommend the series Science fiction thriller awesome story not a trilogy I m all for itRating4 stars Definitely a great examplef an excellent space Maritime Academy Graduate: Memoir Of A Third Mate opera in YA science fiction I hope to see well written spacepera series like this in the future Polaris is the final book in the Avalon duology The first book Avalon follows Jeth and his band f friends who steal space ships for an interstellar crime boss I thought the first book had a ton f potential and was a fun ride It deals with a Bermuda triangle like part Trouble Looking for a Place to Happen of space that messes with the threadsf reality and set up a lot Dressed for Thrills: 100 Years of Halloween Costumes and Masquerade of potential for the second book This series ranut Harcourt School Publishers Collections of time sadly It sne From Paella to Porridge: A Farewell to Mallorca and a Scottish Adventure of those rare instances where a trilogy would have been a better fit than a duology It packed a lotf information into the second book and it didn t have enough time to wrap everything up successfully There were so many points that weren t explored enough and whether it was character relationships character development On Toby's Terms or cool elementsf the world I can always use description f scifi tech particularly in this world where a lot f interesting uniue things were introduced but so many Max Lerner: Pilgrim in the Promised Land of the elements were dropped Even the villain feltne dimensional in a lot f ways I wish this series had time It was still fun but it could have been so much This review was riginally posted Indiscretion on Thoughtsn Tome. E Arnett’s fascinating and fast paced sci fi thriller Avalo.
