Galaktikoje stojo sunkūs laikai Žmoniją kontroliuoja loovonai Paėmę žmonių DNR loovonai kuria klaik. The Halo videogames borrowed heavily from this book and Jason Jones of Bungie Studios was my reference for picking it up For its creativity I am grateful that Jones appreciated it and borrowed many ideas for the game series But the story itself is so dark that it gets predictable and gross Torture torture rape torture humanity keeling over without a fight people betraying each other over and over againI am not sure Rowley realizes that when the enormity reaches that scale it can t sustain itself Societies based on evil don t last millenia Anyway this also causes the characters to be personality free and utterly disposableI suppose in terms of science fiction there were a lot of interesting ideas for the time But I am glad that Jones and the rest of Bungie decided to include heroism and good in their stories This utterly lacks any of it It was the age of relativism in fiction and like Jones other favorite work The Black Company this story gets predictably amoral because of itI won t be reading the seuels I also skipped through to the end once a particular character was about to meet a horrible fate I wonder how nerds of this era who freuently identified with Star Wars could also identify with this

If I was the editor for a dictionary I would put this book s cover art next to the entry for genre trash It s the kind of book that begins with a dozen paragraphs of galactic history delivered as pure exposition from no one s perspective before introducing an unstoppable protagonist who starts out a slave and is banging an alien princess by twenty pages in That literally happens Then in the next twenty pages he is involved in a court conspiracy to assassinate an alien duke with a gun implant in his middle finger Another twenty pages later and he s working as a psychic mass murder prevention cop on a space station I know what you re thinking that actually sounds kind of sweet And it is a bit Here s the thing while not without redeeming ualities Starhammer is just not worth your time when there is so much better science fiction out thereTo Rowley s credit his vision and ambition in world building are pretty laudable But when it comes to execution narrative dialog and character building he just falls on his face over and over If you encapsulated the plot of this book as an outline or a series of bullet points you would get me and most other sci fi enthusiasts pretty excited because there s a lot of fantastic action weird aliens galactic empires and such to make things interesting and varied But then you sit down to read the book which is composed of sentences made of words and you start groaning at least once a page To call the writing hamfisted is maybe too harsh I think what s actually going on is like a total abdication of editorial oversight on behalf of the publisher Patrick Rothfuss lets books bake in the editorial oven for years after he finishes writing them This feels like it was maybe given a single pass before being shipped to the printing press For me that seriously undercut the enjoyment I was able to extract from these pages but looking around at other reviews I see that s not the case for every reader And indeed this came recommended to me by a friend who introduced me to Iain M Banks whose recommendations have rarely led me astray But speaking for myself I freuently found the characters motivations unfathomable both on the human and alien side of the euation It s tough for me to get invested in the plot no matter how sweet it looks in outline form when the principal actors are the literary dramatic euivalent of two by fours with faces drawn on them by magic markerNow I m reading some Robert A Heinlein and it feels like a breath of fresh air after walking past a row of Chinese restaurant dumpsters in August Your mileage may vary but if you re like me you ll mostly resent this book for being just good enough that you didn t put it down halfway through and move on with your life The Family reikmėm tenkinti Džonas Jehardas buvęs loovonų vergas išsiveržia laisv.

Christopher Rowley ð 3 summary

ėn kad sužinotų stulbinančių dalykų apie žmones loovonus bei už jų slypinčią Kosminę Paslaptį. A brilliant gory action packed science fiction epic that ended like a splash of cold water to the face The ending was as if the author suddenly decided that he got bored of the story and ended it in a anti climatic way It would ve been one of my favorite books if the ending keep up with the uality of the drama the story carries I love the background story of the laowon human the vangs and the Starhammer This book has a great pace with consistent action but not too overwhelming It is a short book but it felt like a sprawling space opera which is a good thing I d give it five stars had it not been anti climatic in the end I might reread its seuel Military Form then end the series with Battlemaster
