In this volume, the arch villain Tek turns almost cartoonish, and the interplay between him and Will resembles a scene from Austin Powers in which Dr. Evil steals his mojo. The purpose was to create a context for Will's inner conflict but it requires sending his wife out alone and unarmed without a military escort in a war zone, and then glossing over the fact that Tek is going to carry out his dastardly deed regardless of what Will chooses to do. It may have created a necessary context, but it framed Will as unintelligent and weak.
For light Sci-Fi the first two thirds of the book falls in line with all the prior books...then every character in the book seems to have been hit in the head with a hammer really really hard to have caused massive brain trauma.
It's at this point I put the book down...not on a table or shelf...no...the out behind the barn type down.
