    One thought on “Balance Point”

    1. This was an interesting book. I picked it up mainly because of the cover, to be honest. It strongly reminded me of my old paper back copy of The War Against the Rull.I did not realize it was the third book in a series when I started reading it; reading the first two books before this might have helped somewhat, but I felt this was a decent standalone novel as well [there is enough backstory filler in it to aid the reader without disrupting the narrative pacing too much]. The character developmen [...]

    2. This is the 3rd book in Orphan’s Legacy series. It continues the stories of Jazen Parker and company, and involves events during a second Cold War between Earth and Yavet. What stuck out about this book were the historical parallels to the cold war, with lots of tidbits about the original cold war, spying + covert actions. It was a very entertaining continuation of the story, involving all of the characters from the past two books. I would say it has a bit less action sequences as the previous [...]

    3. Balance Point is book three in the Orphanage Legacy series, itself a sequel to the Jason Wander series.The follow-on to the Orphanage series features tanks. Buettner's father was a tanker and he wanted to write something dealing with his father's experiences as told to him. This is good, because it means I get to read stories that cover the whole spectrum of war, and the reasons why wars are fought. I very much enjoyed the intelligence spy-craft aspects of the series, and the inclusion of operat [...]

    4. The monster on the cover of Rober Buettner’s third tale of the Orphan Legacy series is one of the heroes. Mort is very intelligent and a super telepath and a great help to Jazon and Kitt when they go to Yavi to meet the dying woman who raised Jazon. The Yavi authorities have let the midwife go in the hope of drawing in Jazon and his parents who have the secret of ftl travel the Yavi’s desperately want. Yavi is a heavily overcrowded planet where child murder is acceptable and the human worlds [...]

    5. I picked up my first book in this series after being hooked by the Orphan series and loved the way it changed the whole direction of the story but remained in a familiar set of worlds. This book was a great finish dwelling on the cold war aspects of relationships which the author openly admits are reflective of our own. Like all good science fiction books it sets familiar themes where we can explore them and explore our reactions to them from a distance. Loved the characters, loved the final lin [...]

    6. A cracker finale to the end of a great series. The humour however just wasn't there this time, I love Jazen as a character but in this book he seemed to have lost the classic funny wry observations that I've come to enjoy.

    7. This was a pretty good book that successfully brought a 3 book series to an adequate end ! It kept my interest and was well paced !
