McCracken is Bac
on December 19, 2012
Reading this book was like getting back together with old friends that I haven't seen in a long time.
I knew that I've missed Blaine McCracken and company, but until I started reading this book, I didn't know how much.
Blaine, Johnny and Sal haven't missed a step in all these years.
The action, the banter, I couldn't have asked for more.
The only downsides to the book were the plot itself and Captain Seven.
Don't get me wrong, I like the good Captain. But after this, he should be a side character. Not a main. Too many "joint" and "high" references for my taste. It just got old after a while. Also, early on in the book there was too much answering a question without really answering a question. It almost seemed like he was never going to get to the point.
As for the plot. The search for Pandora's Jar and her Temple, it was okay. But as far out as some of the earlier books got, they were grounded for the most part, in reality. This one just seemed more out there. Almost as if it were written for another character.
