Summary

This may be Victory’s eeriest voyage yet as the starship plunges into a bizarre nebula of weird compacted gases. They’re hunting for Valerie Noonan, last seen at the destroyed Adok homeworld searching for survivors.

The nebula holds dark secrets, ones that fight back with mass hypnosis and heavy lasers, seeking the crew’s enslavement and worse. Maddox desperately needs his new intuitive sense and fighting skills as he negotiates the treacherous space reefs, alien deceit, and sinister technology. And he risks everything for what his AI companion Galyan desires most.

The Lost Nebula is book 16 in the Lost Starship series, a star-spanning saga of deadly space war and planetary battles as told by millions-best-selling author Vaughn Heppner.

God bothering and a tad fascist in places

An ok story and easier to follow than recent editions. But the writer is increasingly adding god into the story and a belief the heroes are group of really nice Fascists. while this is a bit silly to hear, i would prefer the female crew to gain some depth of character, as they little more than blonde with nice breasts when described 🙂.

the constant religious inserts are getting anoying

calling back to the first book when it was mentioned that the Methuselah men had personalities which had calcified and become extreme characters of their most dominant traits, well that's the characters in the series now sadly. maybe 16 books Is to many.

MORE Mind Control!!

if you have read the first few books, you've read them all. I've never in my life seen an author that just reuses the same plot over and over, to this extent. I recommend that you read the first three or four books, then just ignore the rest of them. I assure you that you will NOT regret using your time on something else.

5 stars, but multiple new threads?

This was highly entertaining and I do rate it high in all respects, but so many new threads were opened in this one it makes me doubt that the author intends, or has even conceived, a satisying conclusion to the story.

Not that I am ready for the series to end, but the authors of my favorite sci-fi series all have one trait that I love: Even if they do go on to continue a series, they provide "Waypoint" novels along the way that close enough threads that they can serve as a satisfying conclusion, even if another book were never written in the series. SH. Jucha, and Craig Alanson are two such.

Dissapointing

Gosh, never thought I feel less than 5 stars about the Maddox Lost Starship series, but I struggled to even assign three stars to this one. Two sub- plots were so convoluted, disjointed, and seemingly without purpose that I coundt finish the book. And I * love * this series, have read all the other books, but this one did not work at all for me.

improvement In My Opinion

As with a lot of long running series this one has had some ups and downs. The storyline of this book was less meandering than some of the others and brought focus back to main characters whom I enjoy.

Overall a consistent performance and a decent story that was reminiscent of mid series books more than the last few. If you feel like the last two or three books were "Meh" then I think you will gain some faith back from The Lost Nebula.
