“War in the heavens for freedom on Earth

Time to take the fight to the enemy, if they can find the Trog Fleet.

The Free Army missed their opportunity to catch the vulnerable Trog Fleet docked together on Ceres with empty magazines after their latest assault on Earth.

Now Dylan Kane needs to scout their bases to see where they’re hiding. If he can find them, the Free Army has enough assault ships to attack and turn the tide of the war.”

Rating: 4.5/5.0

Date Read: June 16th, 2023

June has arrived and I’m still finding ways to easily slide the next installments of Freedom’s Fire into my monthly reading. I felt the third book Freedom’s Fray was slightly better than the first two. This may be due to just getting more invested by this time, I’m not sure.
 
The pacing continues to be smooth with these quick and easy reads/listens. I’ve continued listening to the narration by Greg Tremblay which I’m really beginning to get comfortable with. I feel his does a good job with different voices for the various characters as well as giving us a good deal of emotion behind these as well.
 
The worldbuilding is an area I feel is improving as the series moves forward. This could be partly due to how short each of the first three books have been. But I just felt like we’ve started to see some additional aspects to this world in Freedom’s Fray. Mainly we have a new faction introduced in this installment which was interesting at this point of the story.
 
The character development also ticked up a bit more. As with the new faction we had some new characters introduced which were very interesting. The group from the new faction added some interesting twists to say the least. But we also had a new character emerge from an older group already introduced early on. Another exciting turn for our main group!
 
I’m having a lot of fun with this series so far and it’s be more than worth the single credit I used to get the entire 6 book box set from Audible.
 
Some notables from Freedom’s Fray are the fact we find out along with Dylan there is more to his family history than previously thought. The Rusty Turd isn’t quite so rusty anymore. Lastly, I’m really intrigued and initially liking this new character stepping forward on the Potato! He seems like he has a lot of potential to add to the story in the second half of the series.
 
I’ll continue to recommend this series to fans of space science fiction looking for some good action and might not have a lot of time for a more epic space odyssey.

World Building 4.5/5
Pacing 4/5
Character Development 4.5/5
