Overview

Singularity (Star Carrier Series #3) by Ian Douglas

Humankind’s vast intergalactic power struggle and future war to bring down an insidious evil alien empire reaches an explosive, page-turning climax in Ian Douglas’s Singularity, the third book in his New York Times bestselling Star Carrier series. Blisteringly exciting military science fiction in the vein of the hit TV series “Battlestar Galactica,” Singularity pits determined space soldiers against a powerful race of creatures bent upon the total annihilation of a human race on the brink of technological transcendence. A notable descendant of such classic military sf novels as Joe Haldeman’s The Forever War and Starship Troopers by Robert Heinlein, Singularity will not disappoint author Douglas’s every-growing legion of fans as it conquers Jack Campbell, Rick Shelley, John Ringo, David Sherman and Dan Cragg loyalists as well.

The book began with usual occassional flashbacks as to be expected, but by page 250, it was obvious that the author was being paid by the word. After having the mechanics of the same weapons system explained to me three seperate times in the same book in graphic detail, I found myself skimming entire PAGES. Predictable ending, and not up to par with the previous two novels in this reader's opinion. Far too many questions left unanswered, unsatisfactory answers to the questions that were haphazardly attempted, and about 2000 words that should have gone to an attempt to write a satisfactory novel (instead of writing to an advance from the publisher) earn this intergalactic starship train wreck of an otherwise fantastic trilogy three stars.

Ian Douglas has really delivered another fantastic military hard science fiction novel. What really amazes me about these books are how they are driven by people, emotion, politics, and engaging stories. The technology is based on real theories (look up Alcubierre drive in Wikipedia) and applications of physics in the military (the impact of light speed on tactics). But the books don't read like a tech manual. Also, the aliens are truly alien - with different ways of thinking that really keep you wondering about what drives them. These are rare feats, and I'm so happy that Ian Douglas can keep them coming. I'm looking forward to whatever he comes up with next.

It's a good story line and I enjoy reading it. The different aliens are creative and well thought-out. The only true complaint I have is the repetition of description. It seemed as though the author didn't realize that certain information had already been covered in this volumn, which I think is important for a person writing a series to keep up with. The information is important and helps the reader, but the constant repetition boggs down the reader and makes a little less enjoyable.

Here is a whole new approach to both galactic archaeology and time travel neatly wrapped up in intergalatic conflict and space combat. Extremely well done?
