Book #11 - Spinward Fringe - Triton

I grabbed this one as soon as I’d finished #2, despite having other books to read. Triton continues the story of Captain Valance who has taken his crew in command of Triton, the Sol defense vessel, to a new system.

It’s an amazing ship, but woefully undermanned. This book talks of the amazing technologies, but also shows the challenges of running a large ship. The captain can’t do everything himself, and we see the characters develop and struggle to find their places in the story.

We also start to see the Fourth Fall of mankind, with Regent Galactic releasing a horrible AI virus on the universe that has billions being killed.

It’s an exciting, but sad book. I think it’s worth reading, but you definitely need to read 1 and 2 before this one.
