A Short Series

Star Carrier, the final book in the Lost Colonies series from B V Larson is of the same general standard as the previous two stories in the trilogy. As mentioned before in my reviews of those books, the Lost Colonies series appears to cater for what I consider a younger target audience, lacking the gritty edge of Larsson's other major series like the Star Force and Undying Mercenaries sagas. This is not necessarily a bad thing as I feel it's the mark of a good author when they can alter the style and content of their stories to appeal to a wider audience. Star Carrier is consistent in this regard to the previous books in the series and although lacking the sophistication of his other stories is still a worthwhile read.

The sense I got was that Larson perhaps ran out of ideas and ended this series at just 3 books. Given it's a lost colonies theme, there would seem to me plenty of scope for more stories but I feel Larson experimented with a "lighter" type of science fiction only to discover the idea had ran out of steam. Larson excels at the darker more visceral and alien aspects and having to tone down these themes may have proved too limiting for him.

Star Carrier is nonetheless an entertaining read on the whole and Ballerini's narration was excellent and totally consistent with that of the previous two parts to this trilogy. Given the way the book concluded, it does appear to me that Larson has closed the door on any more in this series.

An entertaining and lightweight series but one worth a read when you wish to tackle something more digestible than some of the much heavier fare out there in the science fiction genre.
