Read an Excerpt

Arlene stared out the porthole, ashen-faced. "Jesus, Fly!" She slid her hand along the deck and pointed; I just barely saw a huge piece of the ship below us, tumbling end over end, shattering into splinters scores of meters long. The alien ship, strong as it was, was never intended to burn through the atmosphere like this! It was fracturing along heat seams, separating into components. "Forward!" I shouted, nearly blacking out with the effort. It was getting hard to talk; we needed all our breath to bear down, force the blood back into our heads. Thank God we were lying down— sitting up, at six g's, we might have passed out. "Forward!" I shouted again, starting to crawl. "Nav...Room...One!" If any component of the ship was to survive the fiery reentry, it would be that one. besides, if that section went, there went the navigational controls— and we would all die anyway.

Starting with the third book in the series these books got farther and farther away from the core story of DOOM, turning it into a cheesy fued between two equally cheesy alien races. Once they get into the part where the story splits between the real world and a virtual reality world, it just becomes too tedious to bother reading any farther.

I love this book, by far one of the best series I have ever read along with Harry Potter and the Lloyd Alexander Black Cauldron series.

Man don't even look at this book if you haven't read the others, it takes away from the beauty to stray from the order of the series. The series as a whole is remarkably surprising, I didn't expect such a fine piece of work from a book that's based on a video game but it jumped away from the game and went to levels I didn't think of. The ending is heartbreaking, especially when you realize that it's the final book in the series, it leaves you painfully begging for more. I'm still scarred by the story, it pulled me in, sucked the life outta me, and spat my bones out to rot. I love this story, I just have to learn to not get so attached to a good story, because you never know when it's over yet leaves you begging and yearning for more.

Good.But the problem is that if you don't read the other parts you miss the story line and whoss who.But I give it a 80%.
