        I find all authors and writers very welcome here. If you are getting
        sexually explicit spam... please let us know because I am unaware of
        it. I don't get the messages as emails. Please report any spam you
        get. We do have some young members here. :)

            Marc: Are you referring to the third book in Weber's Empire from the Ashes
            trilogy?

            What I didn't like about it was that it felt like two separate stories, with
            little connection between the two threads (the coming assassination attempt
            on the Emperor/Empress, and the adventures of the kids on that planet).
            (Plus, the assassination attempt storyline was the one I was more interested
            in and it definitely took a backseat to the other storyline--to the point
            where it almost felt like an afterthought.)

            Even worse was the way the book ended. In the kids' storyline, they finally
            got to the computer that was controlling everything, and then that thread
            completely ended until the last page (four chapters later) when the parents
            got a communication from them saying they were coming home. There was no
            tying up of the loose ends. (How did they get the two sides in the war to
            come to an accommodation? Who's running things now?, etc. Too many things
            were left to the reader to guess at.)

            It felt like an editor said, "You need to cut out a few thousand words. The
            book's too long." and Weber replied, "Okay, I'll just axe Chapter 40. It
            only ties up loose ends, anyway. Nothing important." I wouldn't have minded
            if he summarized everything in a scene or two, but he just dropped the
            storyline with a thud, IMO.

            Mark.

            Well, when the note comes signed Acting Governor His Royal Highness Midshipman Sean Horus MacIntyre , you sort of know who s running the show there now.

              Well, when the note comes signed 'Acting Governor His Royal Highness Midshipman Sean Horus MacIntyre", you sort of know who's running the show there now. There wasn't a lot of accomodation possible with the fanatics in charge before. They would have had to go as a body, but that kind of scene is best left hinted at at best. And the reference to Princess Consort Sandra McMahon MacIntyre was hard to miss, as well.
              It was two stories, of course, but tried together at beginning and end. In the beginning when Emperor Colin is concerned about his children just hanging around for years being royals and not doing anything, in the end by that final scene with the received note, one of my personal favorites. I write and prefer to read about people, not political machinations or intricate plots, so the Pardal storyline was my favorite.

                  Marc: My point exactly. The two stories were *only* tied together at the
                  beginning and end. And even at the end, it was only one a few sentences on
                  the last page. Weber could have written the two stories as separate novellas
                  and it wouldn't have felt much different from the way he did it. Novels
                  often have multiple storylines running in parallel, but they usually
                  intersect here and there as the novel goes on. These stories were completely
                  distinct after the first few chapters.

                  I enjoyed both stories; I just didn't care for how separate they were. (I
                  suppose that was unavoidable given the stories, but it just felt disjointed
                  to me.)

                  Mark.
