If you've followed the journey this far, chances are you're gonna enjoy this last installment. It's still fun, funny, and fast paced. The only minor difference is there's less character development. Since all the main players have already been introduced, the story is more plot driven, which is kind of the point since we all want to get to the end and solve the heir of Novron mystery, as well as a string of other mysteries introduced in the first book.
All of these unnecessary diversions are red herrings to drag the series out. Once I can see the author's hand at work, much of the fun of reading is gone.
