Publisher's Summary

Eight months have passed since the Star Shroud barrier was engaged to protect the Earth, but it won't last, and humanity is scrambling to build a fleet.
Cut off from home, the crew of the Athena has taken refuge on the Boxan colony world, a last safe haven for the creators of the Star Shroud. When Kaylan forms a psychic link to a mysterious Boxan soldier fighting gruesome battles on a dying world, she has to act even if the Boxans refuse.
Rising Force is the fifth book in the Ascension space opera series. Kaylan will risk the Alliance to uncover the secrets of the Boxan home world and mount a daring rescue mission for those left behind. She just needs to find a way past a planetary quarantine zone that has kept the Confederation at bay for over 50 years.

Mostly a filler episode

The narration was still quite good but the story wasn't moved very far from the last episode. Kaylan continues to become stronger with her remote-viewing capability which proves pivotal on several occasions. However, the deference that the Boxen, a much more advanced species, seems unrealistic. Also, Zack moved from being an interesting super-hacker to an annoyingly cloying partner to Kaylan, often exhibiting false bravado when she is out into perilous situations. Their relationship seems a bit stunted and bordering on formulaic.

You call that an ending?

Loved the series, but the ending left a lot to be desired. Maybe Book 6 will tie it together.

Still interesting

Still enjoying the series. However, where was the ending? The story just seemed to be left hanging in mid air, which is why I have only given 4 stars.
