From a Hugo Award-winning author comes the third book in this action-packed sci-fi caper, starring Fergus Ferguson, interstellar repo man and professional finder.
Fergus is back on Earth at last, trying to figure out how to live a normal life. However, it seems the universe has other plans for him. When his cousin sends him off to help out a friend, Fergus accidently
stumbles across a piece of an ancient alien artifact that some very powerful people seem to think means the entire solar system is in danger. And since he's the one who found it, they're certain it's also his problem to deal with.
With the help of his newfound sister, friends both old and new, and some enemies, too, Fergus needs to find the rest of the artifact and destroy the pieces before anyone can reassemble the original and open a multidimensional door between Earth and a vast, implacable, alien swarm. Problem is, the pieces could be anywhere on Earth, and he's not the only one out searching.
I am not sure what it is, but my ratings have been lower on each book in this series. Could it be because the first one was so action-packed with the explosion in the opening chapter, and then a gang war of sorts happens, and Fergus using an array of trickery to get him out of the crazy situations? I think that precisely what these following two books have missed the action and excitement and funny gags are just not hitting home. In this third book, Fergus is back on earth, and he agrees to find some lost sheep; there, he uncovers some alien tech that leads him on a chase to collect them all. Their some emotional reflection going on throughout the book of where his life is going, and he is working on his relationship with his sister that is now back in his life. I just felt rather bored with this third book and am unsure if I will continue to try and give this series more time; maybe if we go back to the excitement of book one, that would help.
