BOOK DESCRIPTION: Inhuman is Book 5 in the best-selling, smash hit phenomenon, Post-Human series. In this 400-plus pages, 109k word epic story (twice as long as any other individual book in the series for the same low $2.99 price-point) readers will get to rejoin all of the characters they fell in love with along the way in the previous 4 books. Inhuman not only ties the first four books together, it also introduces a new villain, one that has been lurking in the background throughout, and that will trump any villain in the history of literature, film, or comics. V-SINN is its name, and, this time, it may just be too much for the post-humans to handle. Inhuman is to the Post-Human series as The Empire Strikes Back was to Star Wars–the middle act when revelations emerge, old sins come back to haunt, and the journey of the heroes that readers have fallen in love with deepens, darkens, and entertains to a whole new level. Post-Human fans will be not be disappointed with this epic middle act! Enjoy!
Ah, well. Here again.
Books 1-4 wrapped up the story pretty well, then I guess they got some traction, so here we are at book 5, which is a pretty good entry in the Post Human series, but not a conclusive story line at all. As the synopsis above says, this is just a middle act book, I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s a few more dozen of these.
Don’t take that as a complaint though, I think I’ll end up reading every single one of them as they come out, lol. The books are good and have a nice flair to them that’s missing in other post-singularity stories with some flourishes that take their logical course with interesting limits on the most power beings in the universe.Video on June 16th, 2015 by tiki bot | Report This Post | Add to favorites

While Spartans get all the glory, no soldier?not even the legendary Master Chief?wins a war on their own. Gunnery Sergeant Edward Buck and his team of Orbital Drop Shock Troopers (ODSTs) played a major role in saving the Earth from all-out invasion at the end of the Covenant War?acts of bravery and ingenuity that did not go unnoticed by the United Nations Space Command.
Now, after many Spartans have been killed in battle and the Master Chief is listed as MIA, the UNSC decides to create a new generation of Spartans to defend humanity from threats both outside?and within. When they come to Buck with an extraordinary proposition, he is forced to make a life-altering decision. With the Covenant War finally over, is it time for him to finally retire to the sidelines for a life he could only dream about…or is he prepared to step up and become part of the military’s new blood?
Not sure how this one snuck past me, though now that I’ve read it I can see why there wasn’t a whole bunch of hoopla made about it, it’s primarily just a filler book from HALO: ODST to HALO 5: GUARDIANS, the upcoming halo game that has a pretty big job of fixing the mistakes of the last halo game. If you’ve been following along, you know that they made some pretty (stupidly) drastic changes to the SPARTAN program that opened the floodgates to letting pretty much anyone become SPARTAN. As a function of that fundamental change, the surviving ODST team from HALO: ODST have been upgraded from normal high level hell jumpers to SPARTAN IVs. There’s some pretty major changes in the ODST team though, some of which seemed to be there only for the sake of having something major happen, and I really think that this should have been two or three times longer to give the characters the story they deserved. That being said, I enjoyed pretty much every page of it’s 188 page length and I’m hoping to see more from Matt Forbeck, he treated the HALO cannon pretty well.Video on June 10th, 2015 by tiki bot | Report This Post | Add to favorites

Humanity has made a leap into the future, but are they ready for what they’ll become?
This is the second novel that I’ve read through Amazon’s (new?) “Kindle Unlimited” program, the first of which was Angles of Attack, which was a great novel in of itself. The Post-Human Series popped up as a suggested read after I was done with Angles of Attack, and since I’m always in the search for great Singularity fiction I figured I’d give it a try, and I’m really happy I did. The series is always on the cusp of being too cheesy or pulling back, but unlike some other Singularity stories, the Post-Human series takes the obvious choices and follows the story where it should logically go. There’s a couple twists half way through that I haven’t seen in this genre before, which is surprising as I’ve read every Singularity book I could get my grubby fingers on.
