#Review: TERRAMEZIC ENERGY by John O'Riley


3 of 5 stars

When I agreed to review this book, I didn't realize it was the 4th book in the series. That actually has made an impact for my enjoyment of the book. There were references to past events that I knew nothing about and it made for some confusing scenes.

While the book is well-written, I didn't really connect with anyone in particular. There were also a number of typos/missing words in the book. I did like Perry, the white energy being, the most although I would have liked to know more about him and how he was created. The evil AI being, APU81, was interesting especially as I got further into the book. The author did a good job of keep the tension going until the end, but I didn't find myself invested in the characters enough to read the other books.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
