Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author John Ringo—a former member of the elite 82nd Airborne Division—and real-life rocket scientist Travis S. Taylor bring an unmatched level of authenticity to their action-packed military science fiction.
Claws That Catch is the fourth volume from their popular Looking Glass series. Humankind’s only interstellar craft, the Vorpal Blade is dispatched to investigate an ancient civilization that may have left vital technology behind. But when the crew finds more than they bargained for, they’ll have to scramble to survive.

Looking Glass Series Jumps the Shark

I thought "Great! Another Looking Glass novel", and it was right up until they find the "Tree" artifact which then involves our trusted hero crew turning into anime characters and singing to defeat the enemy with gaseous Unicorns.... really? I'm sorry, John and Travis but here are your water skis I think the shark has swum into view.... NEXT.

Hilarious romp into SciFi

When Ringo writes, you either love it or hate it. There's no middle ground. I am one of the people who love it. Pseudo-military, pseudo-scientific, and one hundred percent hilarious. The characters are thrown from one insane situation into another, and while they generally manage to scrape through by a combination of luck and skill, it's not always sunshine and flowers. This book is a strange combination of gritty combat and lighthearted humor. The overarching threat of the Dreen, and a dive into insanity with the Anime Zone. I couldn't hear part of the narration I was laughing so hard. If you've ever read and Ringo and liked it, get this book.

Good sci-fi book with some glaring plot holes

Overall a very good book got some very interesting ideas on chaos etc.
Shame there is not a 5 book in the series to tie up some of the loose ends, but as we all know Johnny Ringo does not tend to finish off his series before he starts new ones and never seems to get round to finishing off a complete series.

Fun

The authors obviously had a lot of tongue in cheek fun with this book. An enjoyable listen.
