“Antz – The Gathering (Book 2)” by Ronald Wintrick

01/16/12

This book follows the first in the series real well. We continue to read about the Antz (they have a name but it’s hard to pronounce) and how they are ripping through the human empire. As large and all consuming as humans have become, we’re no match for the unimaginable numbers brought by the Antz! We get introduced to more interesting characters and read about their individual struggles to survive.

The writing is good and flows very well. Even though we get shifted from planet to planet and from one fleet ship to another, there is good continunity between each story line. I find the antics of one Fleet Admiral (Jeeda Collins) to be somewhat ridiculous but this is just a story and it makes for good reading. I like the idea of sending someone out to find if there are any possible allies left I the universe. Makes sense although I’m not sure time will allow all this interstellar traveling to do any good.

Still, continue to read this series. It’s very intertaining and nicely written.

I wasn’t sure about this series. I was kind of throw off by the title. I figured surely a sci-fi author wouldn’t be writing a story about “ants” attacking Earth. Well, that’s just about what this story is about. Antz in space ships, no less. Of course the book is more about the humans and how they react to a new enemy that seems to be coming at them in the millions and millions. I don’t know how antz fly space ships but they do and they also build them from the ground. Like Earth ants, these colonize planets by burrowing into the ground and taking humans with them to feed their young.

There are several story lines about how humans start coping with this invasion. The author does a pretty good job of building characters and making them do useful things.

These books are short and you seem to come to the end real quick. If you’re going to start reading this first one, then you should just go ahead and buy the next three so you’ll have a good three or four days of reading.

“Antz – The Alliance (Book 4)” by Ronald Wintrick

This is a petty good continuation of the first three books. I like the story line and the writing is pretty good. Still, there seems to be a lot of grammatical and spelling error in these Kindle books. Don’t know if that’s because the editors don’t pay much attention to what they’re reading or just some kind of translation problem.

The author introduces some new characters in this book. They’re a little different from the previous characters. The story continues in space and on the ground. Humans aren’t doing any better but we’re getting down to the best of what’s left and I think the tide is about to change.

The story-line doesn’t end so there must be another book coming. I hope it’s published soon cause I liked what I was reading.
