    This is the third book in the Tau Ceti Agenda series by Dr.Travis S. Taylor. This book is a great mix of Military Science Fiction/Hard Science Fiction and Space Opera. It is action packed from cover to cover and has great character development. This book continues the story of America's Space Colonies trying to secede from the union much as the South did in the Civil War era. The President is a former U.S,Marine. When the rebels kidnap his daughter he gets really mad. They learn very quickly nev This is the third book in the Tau Ceti Agenda series by Dr.Travis S. Taylor.

Taylor and fans of Military Science Fiction/Hard Science Fiction and Space Opera.

    I wanted to enjoy this... I really did... And I still did in some regards. But it let me down and I found myself zoning in and out of the battle scenes and losing track of the 75 percent of the cast that didn't matter. I wanted to enjoy this... I really did...

    This was a letdown of a series. No spoiler alert: I figured out some of the ending near the beginning of this book. SPOILER ALERT(UNLESS READ THE PRIOR BOOKS): The Disney storyline was just plain awful. SPOILER ALERT: Come on, we just happen to have a succession right after a kidnapping and the entire planet is behind it. The tariff angle was dumb and if a fleet can just QMT to one location why not do it in battle more often. Apparently even though the other side has this technology before they This was a letdown of a series. No spoiler alert: I figured out some of the ending near the beginning of this book.

    Okay book. The first two books set up certain expectations, and the third novel kind of... fails to live up to them. When I got to the 'twist' about the main villain I was just left going "You have GOT to be kidding me." It just seemed right out of left field. (I did wonder if Doc had a ending planned out, but which he had to change? Might explain the, in my opinion, DUMB plot twist.) So yeah, good start, bad end. Okay book.

    The story started out well but by page 110 I was fed up with the profanity. I served in the US Navy so I know all the words. :-) I resign myself to a certain amount of profanity in any military fiction story but the profanity was unnecessary in this story at the rate the author was using it. So at page 110 I have had enough and I am abandoning this book. I very rarely do not finish a book once I start reading it. I do not recommend this book.

    The series started off okay with "One Day on Mars" ... and I got the whole "Tau Ceti" thing ... but seriously? A mad AIC ?? Huge let down. That whole 'twist' could have been insinuated into the main plot early on instead of dropping it into the final couple of chapters of the final volume. Definitely not a re-readable series, despite how good the first volume was. The series started off okay with "One Day on Mars" ... and I got the whole "Tau Ceti" thing ... but seriously? A mad AIC ??

    The writing really isn't very good. The action sequences could have been shortened by a factor of three (or more) and be much improved. There is lots of combat, described in excruciating detail, but all the same. Lots of slang. Very tiring. The writing really isn't very good.

    If I have to read "Fox three" or "Guns, guns, guns" ever again, I think I will find a way to scoop out my eyeballs with my elbows. Dramatic action, good science, bad writing. This is not a book I would buy again. If I have to read "Fox three" or "Guns, guns, guns" ever again, I think I will find a way to scoop out my eyeballs with my elbows.

    The last book in the Tau Seti Agenda series. This wrapped everything up. I enjoyed the book and like that all the loose ends were tied together.

    418 pages, Science fiction. A good read. Last of the Tau Ceti Agenda. It wraps up all the loose ends of the other prior books in this series in a very satisfying way.

    Good end to the trilogy. Good characters, nice action sequences and all loose ends were tied up. And, I like the transforming marine mechas.
