Rating: 3 of 5 Stars
Genre: Military Fantasy

The Ranger-Roos are off on a big bad mission to kill somebody. Only, they get side tracked and kill somebody else and the stupid narrator, Talker, who is like the most important person to the group for his linguistics skills, jumps into a dimensional vortex/rift thingy to save another ranger so he pretty much is dead.

Hurray!!!!!!!!!!!!! No more blathering idiot going on about coffee or blabbing about wanting to be a real Ranger-Roo. I actually did a fist pump when it was revealed that he was dead. It was very carthartic for me.

Of course, we’ll have to see if the next narrator is any better. I have a bad feeling Anspach and Cole (the authors) are just going to use some other nitwit to journal instead of, you know, actually writing an exciting adventure novel. Aaaaaand I just went on Amazon to see how many books were in this series and wouldn’t you know, one of the later books has Talker as the narrator again. Tarnation!

    1. Well, it was more about translating, which considering they are 10,000 years in the future, is pretty important. But he was a stupid wannabe, so I hope he stays away for at least 2 books. I can dream….


    1. Sadly, there’s no comparison. BC was fun to read and told an exciting story. This stuff, well, it just holds the ramblings of a young guy who can only think about coffee and languages 😦

        1. I will. I have hopes that maybe without Talker as the main character the authors will tell an actual story instead of the coffee fueled scribblings of a young narcissist. These have all been closer to journal entries instead of a telling a story and it really hasn’t worked for me.
          But it wouldn’t surprise me that as soon as Talker becomes the mc again that I’ll quit. I really dislike him.
