The Salvation of Caron brings the saga of Kaskle’s homeworld to a close, but not before some truly heart-stopping scenes are played out.
Ron is compelled to place his trust, and his life, into the hands of a new group of allies that he has great reservations about. His own personal issues lie in the forefront of that tenuous relationship and his view of past events fans the flames of suspicion until a final showdown with his most loathsome comrade is unavoidable. Through this confrontation however, he learns new respect and admiration for his colleagues, sympathy for what they have endured, and finally regret for allowing himself to ever have accepted grave circumstantial evidence for true hard fact.
He immediately sets out to rectify the situation, but before that can be totally addressed, all-out war with the Kreete explodes right in front of him. From there, he has little time to dwell on his private affairs.
The battles are clear and vivid, brutal and awesome, and will have you biting your nails as to how the outcome can possibly be a positive one. Ron faces more tremendous foes, both humanoid and beast, and with the help of a tightly knit group of friends, manages to survive, time after time.
He also takes to the air in different aircrafts, and carries the war across a wide expanse of the planet, pushing his body and his nerves to the very brink.
Cache returns to the plot with her own perception of the past, and a radically skewed look toward the future. She is conflicted, valiant, resilient, and brilliant.
The Salvation of Caron is a full-on, bare-knuckled brawl for the rule of Caron, and won’t fail to deliver the action, suspense, surprise, and triumphs you are looking for!
Another exciting and enjoyable episode in this brilliant action and adventure series. Fantastic characters and very well written. Highly recommended.
