-Spinward Fringe is a fantastic series and rapidly becoming one of my favourites.

Nine million people have been killed by the Holocaust Virus and still it spreads, coming ever closer to the core worlds. People are frightened and are willing to pay the 100,000 credits to the Order of Eden to save themselves and their families. The Eden Fleet is separating from Regent Galactic who are denying all knowledge. The war of machine verses man has taken a terrible toll, and it is just the beginning. This is the backdrop in Spinward Fringe Broadcast 4: Frontline.


**SPOILER ALERTS** There are those who are fighting and making a difference. Captain Jake Valance on board the Triton is willing to do whatever it takes to bring down Regent Galatic.  And he is not alone, Ayan, the love of his life has been cloned. Minh-Chu believed dead has been rescued and reunited with Ayan both determined to reach Captain Valance.

Jason and Oz are also seeking the Triton, when their ship is attacked by the Virus, they are able to crash land on Pandem. Pandem has many secrets; it was here that the Holocaust Virus was launched. It is important to both the Order of Eden and Regent Galactic and when Captain Valance finds out that his people are on it, it becomes of vital importance to him.

This book was so fast paced and had so much going on that I was barely able to breathe. I couldn’t wait for old friends to meet new friends but was so caught up in the action that I found myself yelling at my ipad at certain parts.

I appreciated how there was more time devoted to the main characters in the Order of Eden and Regent Galatic so you could understand their motivations. I can’t wait to find out what happens with Eve and just whose side is the improved Wheeler on?

Spinward Fringe is a fantastic series and rapidly becoming one of my favourites. But trust me, don’t try and explain the plot to anyone…they would never believe it!

  1. I was fascinated with Lalonde’s presentation of the Order of
    Eden as a type of religion; the concept of people needing to pay 100,000 credits
    for their salvation is so mind-blowing.

    I also love the complexity of Lalonde’s characters. Are they
    evil, are they good or somewhere in between? His characters are always
    skillfully developed and multidimensional. I really love this series as well!
