Almost 4 stars, but some glaring problems
The book is largely improved from the rest. The RPG elements have been completely abandoned other than token mentions. Which is better than the way it was just under implemented before.
The book also has a few of unexpected and odd references. Which leaves me confused.
But what really holds the book back and a lot. Is the way the book handles the main challenge. The enemy time powers. In that the writer basically wrote himself into a corner with these overpowered dudes and proceded to just ignore them.
Basically bad guys can reverse time for 15 minutes at will, happens automatically if they die and it seems to habe unlimited uses. So to die they have to be put into a situation where going back in time for 15 minutes doesnt save them and then accept death.
Not a single one of the time guys died in a way that I found satisfactory except perhaps the one who was tortured until he agreed to stay dead.
As it is possible she engaged him then waited 15 minutes before torturing him. So that way when he went back in time he was already under her power.
Seems like a strategy easily beat by enemies just making sure they dont engage for longer than 14 minutes at a stretch before going back in time, but I digress.
Every other time, going back 15 minutes in time would put them to a period before engagement. Letting them flee and try again. Even the first kill was specified it was taking 16 minutes for the shuttle to be primed to blow. So thats 14 minutes to set the shuttle down and try something else.
The thing is, any kind of limitation on the power would have fixed things. A cool down for instance. But the author wrote them overpowered and just didnt have them defeated properly. And that to me is an unforgivable failure.
