Fallen Empire - Book #7
by Lindsay Buroker
Perilous Hunt is the 7th book the 8-book Fallen Empire series. Since you're reading this, you've probably read the rest of the series. If you have NOT read the rest of the series, stop and run -- don't walk -- to the Final Hunt review and check it out. Then read the series, and when you're ready to read this one, come back. I'll still be here. I promise.
Book 7 continues Alisa Marchenko's saga to rescue her daughter Jelena and recover the Staff of Lore from the Big Bad Guy(tm), affectionately nicknamed Terrible Tym. In this episode (that's how I think of this, as one big season), our intrepid captain and her crew make it to the coordinates where the children should be held, only to find an asteroid belt -- and every opponent they've ever had. The Alliance and the Imperials are both chasing them, not to mention some androids and Terrible Tym himself!
This is the first of Buroker's book series to have an ongoing plot across all the books, and in this case, it's working out grandly. It feels like Firefly or Stargate or Star Trek, and that's a good thing.
Perilous Hunt is a solid addition to the Fallen Empire series, and I can't wait to read the exciting finale in December!
