    Outstanding!

    The perfect finale to a riveting series! S.M. Stirling make the story move like watching a movie. And you actually feel for the characters. If you are even remotely interested in the Terminator series, you should read this series. Start with T2-Infiltrator, T2-Rising Storm then this.

    Even if you're only familiar with Terminator for the movie Terminator Salvation, you'll really appreciate this series and won't get lost.

    Loved It!

    Fantastic read! I had read the previous two in the series and they were both good, but this last installment was far and away the best. I only wish there was a fourth one on the way.

    I couldn't put this book down!!!!

    Sterling alternate storytelling was right on the money. I read Vols. 1 & 2 and they held my attention from the first page to the last. And the same with vol.3 of the series which continue to deliver the punch and excitement that first two volumes showed. And if you liked the Terminator movies,then you will love Sterling approach with these volumes

    Waited 19 years for this?

    The book is the complement of the first Terminator movie, T2 and T3 (due in a few weeks). Remember in T1 the glimpses of the future, showing Reese and others fighting in the rubble, amidst skeletons? It has been nineteen years since the T1 movie, but finally we can see extra details alluded to. Stylistically, this differs from most of Stirling's works. In part because he must fit it into the boundary conditions set by the movies. The narrative is sparser. Details are considerably less, especially of the scenery, which is his trademark in many other stories. There is simply not the dense weave of descriptions and subplots seen in the Nantucket trilogy or the Peshawar Lancers. Plus, the combat scenes don't have the same intensity as those in Marching Through Georgia. (One scene in Future War alludes to another in the latter; see if you can find it.) My impression is that Stirling wrote this book simply to tie up the loose ends in the movies and close out his two other Terminator novels. Just work-for-hire. Fans of the movies should check this book out for more flesh on the movies. Fans of Stirling should probably look to his other wholly-owned works.

    great action packed doomsday thriller

    Sarah Connor, her son John, and her lover Dieter felt destroying Clea before she activated Skynet had given them victory, but soon learn otherwise as the organic terminator managed to feed the discs to Skynet. Almost immediately Skynet concludes that humanity poses a threat to its survival and must be eradicated. Instead of complacency, Sarah and Dieter become concerned when the Pentagon announces Skynet will run all its weapon systems. <P>Skynet begins experimenting to prepare for Judgment Day, when the advanced computer system fires all the nuclear weapons in its arsenal. Skynet starts the nuclear end run as Sarah and her loved ones hide in a fallout shelter. With human collaborators and terminator robots with advanced weapons on its¿ side, Skynet seems on the verge of victory. Only Sarah as a rallying point and her two cohorts lead a weak resistance that over the years is becoming stronger against a god-like enemy. <P>T2 THE FUTURE WAR is a great action packed doomsday thriller starring three long time favorite heroes, but also provides well-rounded personality traits to Skynet so the audience knows this is an independent sentient essence. Sarah seems so much more than she was in past books and movies as she has turned into a profound leader, who recognizes she is an icon to the resistance. John has matured from his previous feelings of resentment and disbelief into the hope of the future. This finale (loosely put ¿ need to read to understand why) is a winner as S. M. Stirling terminates the series with a triumphant doomsday thriller in which humanity fights to survive against a killing machine. <P>Harriet Klausner
