Description

Koban: When Empires Collide, Volume 7

The end of the main series:

Under threat of destruction or servitude to the Empire, facing the fleets of the Ragnar, Finth, and Thack Delos, and the larger force of the Thandol, Mirikami prepares the Federation for all-out war. The Planetary Union, allied with the Federation, receives a squadron of new technology Federation Scouts equipped with gravity controlled weapons. They conduct a preemptive strike on a Thandol base. The emperor blames it on the Federation, unaware of the PU's existence, and orders simultaneous attacks.

Mirikami sends teams of Federation Scouts to the Security forces to subvert them. They carry diplomat-soldiers with tough messages. The messages are not well received, and the Kobani must improvise in their typically hostile manner.

Unexpectedly, a mystery silver alien, the Silha, demands a meeting with Mirikami and the Olt'kitapi. It seems there are restrictions for species once they achieve advanced gravity control. The Kobani are told of limits they must obey, or else. To a god-like elevated species, survival of primitives is not their concern, so long as they don't use gravity technology in forbidden ways.

After Security force fleets attack Federation and PU worlds, Mirikami leads a combined fleet against the Thandol Capitol world. He uses a new tactic that bypasses the weapons limits of the Silha. Vastly outnumbered, he faces the Thandol fleet with a great defense.

An ending leaving you wanting more

Bennet has a way of rushing about the galaxies leaving his readers rushing to keep up.

Outstanding ending

What a great world building story enriched with humor and logic, which don't always go together.

Good conclusion to technically brilliant series

The best part of this series has been the innovative tech used throughout. The characters were good, perhaps could have been more dimensional and have evolved (other than transhuman enhancements) personality-wise throughout the series.

The banter was cheerful, with some awkwardness in the way the tech/science was explained - by using the characters to explain to one another how something works. Especially awkward when this method was used to bring the reader up to speed after a period of time between books and to remind the reader how something works.

Still though, Stephen W. Bennett is one of the best sci-fi authors to come up with innovative ideas for future technology/biology. His series is valuable for that alone.

I look forward to future spin-offs, perhaps with more focus on characters and their on planet adventures.

Truly one of my favorite series

This is one of a handfull of series that stands out clearly among the many out there. It starts with a humanity-ending tragedy and ends victorious on so many levels. I envy readers who can now read the entire series in sequence without the wait between books. This is also one of a few series that I may revisit again. I hope other readers enjoy it as much as I have. Do not judge the entire series by the narration of the first book. I almost did.

Rushed ending to a fun series

I find that I enjoyed the earlier Koban books more than the later stories. this was still a fun book, but it lacked any feeling tension. This has been a problem with the series since the Kobani became nigh invincible fighters with massive technological supperioty.

A fitting end of a series but not the end of a story!

I have thoroughly enjoyed the Koban series, it has it all! I look forward to seeing what the next series or stand alone books will bring.
