Book Review: Freedom’s Fist

Table of Contents

“The first interstellar war, a generation ago, left humanity enslaved. Now humans fight in the armies of their masters to save themselves from annihilation.

At least that’s what the propaganda insists is true. What the layers of lies keep hidden is how badly the new war is going for the people of earth.

Now it’s Dylan Kane’s turn to blast into the heavens and join the battle, but what his masters don’t know is that by putting a weapon in his hands, they’re giving him the key to unlocking his hopes of freedom.

When the railgun slugs are tearing through his ship and the vacuum is sucking the life out of his wounded friends, will Dylan’s years of repressed rage turn into enough bravery to make his dream come true?”

I’m currently on a run getting through the fourth book in as many months of the Freedom’s Fire series now. July was book four Freedom’s Fist by Bobby Adair. This series continues to be a lot of fun for me. The story is engaging and they are such short listens, I can find time to slide them in almost any point of the month.
Freedom’s Fist did start off with some interesting twists. We introduce or progress with a couple of relationships that I either didn’t see coming or wasn’t sure we’d see actually happen.
Beyond that, this continues to be a fast paced space odyssey tale with plenty of action to move things along!
The pacing of this series has been very fast paced. I feel the names and vocabulary in general contribute to this. Not to mention the length of these books again. I wouldn’t feel right if I didn’t continue to mention the performance by Greg Tremblay on my audiobook version. I’ve gotten very comfortable with his narration by this point of the series.
The world building continues to expand. I mean we are in a story set in the unknown expanses of the universe. Freedom’s First takes us on the offensive though and the team sets out to take the fight to the Trogs and Greys. I’d categorize this book into the expanding the world but also those details as we start to understand a bit more about our enemies and how they operate in this read.
Finally, the character development ramped up a bit in the fourth book. As I mentioned we have some relationships that get rolling early on in this book. One I wasn’t sure whether it would ever happen even if it had been eluded to previously. But the other caught me completely off guard. Beyond that, I feel we’ve kind of settled into most of these characters at this point and we tend to know what to expect with them.
This series continues to be a cozy little quick science fiction story I can easily squeeze into each month. The six book set has been a fantastic Audible purchase for me so far. It’s truly exceeded my expectations when I picked it up earlier this year. At this point, I’m looking forward to checking out some more works from Bobby Adair in the future. I’m leaning towards either Dusty’s Diary or Slow Burn depending on how large of a series I want to commit to. I’m sure both will be entertaining though!
I don’t have much to recommend on this series for readers. I mean if you’ve made it to book three of the series, then by all means keep going as book four gives us more of the same world, only expanding on some of the character relationships and the fight for humanities survival!

World Building 4.0/5
