A fun and interesting read is what I had hoped for, after all the first Discovery book was pretty fun and interesting. I did not find this book to be fun, nor interesting, I found it to be more of a bland story by checklist:
- Something bad happens.
- Villain runs away.
- Good guys show up.
- Aside from a couple explosions, there’s no confrontation with the bad guy.
- There’s no space combat.
- End of story.
- Epilogue that reveals something absolutely amazing if Discovery actually picks up on it.
I doubt Discovery will pick up on the Epilogue, though it’s possible. It was literally the only thing that I found to be of interest in the book.
