Blog Tour: MetaWars: The Freedom Frontier by Jeff Norton
I have had mixed feelings about reading this book, I have only recently started this series and have demolished every book I have read, and while I have been looking forward to reading MetaWars: The Freedom Frontier, I have not wanted to read it knowing that it's the final book in the series.
Jeff Norton takes no prisoners in MetaWars: The Freedom Frontier and the action is quick to start. Right off the bat there are an unimaginable number of losses from both Millennials and Guardians, and some potential losses, one of them I didn't expect and actually made me cry, which considering I didn't really develop a bond with this character surprised me.
Jonah, Sam, and Granger have to stop this war for once and for all, and the only solution is to join forces and fight a common enemy. I never saw this coming and considering the history between this trio they work well together, each one bringing something to their advantage. I really thought that they would last for one mission that only benefited Granger, and that he would then do something to split the team up, but he really surprised me, which makes me feel better about liking some of the ways he tried to 'help' the Uploaded in the previous book.
Prepare to grab hold of this book with both hands, and take one hell of an adventure with Jonah, Sam, and Granger. In my head I had it planned out how MetaWars: The Freedom Frontier would go down, and my expectations were thrown out of the window, instead I was presented with a book were I never knew what would happen next from one page to another, and this just made the adventure that much more 'real'.
I wish I could go into detail and write thousands and thousands of words to explain my feelings and thoughts about MetaWars: The Freedom Frontier. But if I did that then I would take away the surprises and the sense of adventure from you. I love seeing how the plan this trio made together works, and the end result from it all, which I think was a perfect touch to this series and what the MetaWars were all about. The friendships made in previous books are tested with bad, good, and happy consequences and I like were the future is heading.
