Publisher's Summary

An ancient starship discovered... An eternal enemy revealed... An impossible mission to save humankind.
The Goliath has been discovered, the first of its secrets revealed. Now the race is on for Captain Mitchell Williams and his crew to return to Liberty and recover Origin's lost memories before the enemy can complete their violent conquest. It's a mission with a near-zero chance of success. A mission that only the Riggers would be crazy enough to accept - and skilled enough to survive. A mission that will test the limits of Mitchell's mind, body, and soul and force him to make an impossible choice that could cost the lives of millions. This is war, and if he can't win a battle for a single planet, how can he possibly change the outcome of a conflict that has raged beyond eternity?

Reliving a million past future FAILS

I never liked the appellation, "Rig gers!" and now cringe every time I hear it. I would have preferred the author stick with Marine's "Ooh Rah!". The same with Admiral/Captain "Millie", I see her more of an Admiral Paine than a Millie, much like the Final Fantasy X-2 character. Oh, well.

Captain "Mitch" Williams continues to waft male pheromones like freshly baked bread with every new female he encounters seemingly wanting to bed him. Jealous much? Well, Yeah! While this genre is classified as SciFi, that part of the story is clearly touching lightly on the Fantasy genre.

{Spoiler Alert}
I was please to find that most of the Riggers survived the final battle in Book 1 but was dismayed when they were mostly turned into cannon fodder in Book 2. Also, most of Christine's role, between fighting to stay alive, was struggling with internal conflict about who she was and flipping between needing to save Mitch or kill him. It jumped the shark when Mitch was severely stabbed multiple times in the gut yet was able to recover by an unhealthy amount of meds and some tight stomach bandages.

much better than the way it started!

This story /series has a lot of concepts and tech we are familiar with from so many other places like Star Trek, Star Force, Undying Mercenaries, Terminator, Empire's Corps; in fact I thought there was a connection to Nuttal's Empire's Corps at first since I thought I heard "Avalon." But no.

The back- (and front-) stabbing crew thrown together in the first book has worked itself out well before this installment, so some of the complaints I had there are no longer viable. There is good character development, and the original overabundant shake-my-head carnal scenes are absent in this book. This is about plot.

There's a lot that's familiar here. It's well-written and has its own differences from the others in the genre. There is mystery in wondering who is cloned/remade and who is really dead. There is excitement and danger. The time travel aspect ("past futures") is the most fascinating and unique to this series. If you like this genre, you should like this series too. It's a good one.
