fifth and final book of the series. We finally get to the actual civil war....such as it is.
After four volumes of build up the actual civil war is, well, almost anti-climactic. And really hardly worth calling a war. Slight disturbance comes to mind.
Mind you that really did flow from how the secessionist movement has been described over the last few books. To put it bluntly they are barely competent. And they make really stupid partnerships.
I am glad I happened on this series. It is not a set of classic books to be sure but they have been good, mindless entertainment.
And we all need that from time to time.
