This entire series was kind of hard to understand until I got to this book, the seventh and last book in the series. I’m not so sure that’s the way to write a series, but it’s the way this one was written and if you’re now reading my last review of the series, you already know what I’m talking about.
Mitch Williams, Riggers, the Federation and the Alliance are once again fighting against Watson and the rest of the Tetrons. Again, Tetrons are Artificial Intelligence created by humans. Those same Tetrons decided they didn’t like being treated like property so they rebelled and now are out to conquer the entire universe. The original Tetron actually assisted in building other Tetrons. She is called Origin (what an original name) and is the “mother” of all the other Tetrons including Watson. What she did that was terrible wrong was to give Watson some human emotions. Unfortunately, Watson couldn’t handle these emotions so it warped his brain making him a complete psychopath. Now he’s the one leading the charge to destroy all humanity.
The thing is, this “war” between the Tetrons and humans has been going on for quite sometime in many, many different universes and time periods. Colonel Mitch Williams and a few other people have constantly found themselves at the center of this war. They are the ones doing the fighting over and over again, trying to change something significantly enough to stop the cycle and destroy Watson.
It hasn’t happened yet, but this book is about another effort only this Colonel Mitch Williams and his followers are coming into this new timeline fully aware of what they face. And this time, they have everybody ready to fight. The Alliance and Federation have agreed to a truce and Colonel Williams has his Riggers from the last time-line so everyone is ready to fight. Except Watson, who should have died in the late time-line, didn’t and he’s not afraid in this time-line, which he should be.
Anyway, once you read this book you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find out that all this stuff apparently never happened! Good reading!
