    This review may not be perfectly coherent because I just had a several day long Zero binge I m reviewing Zero Recall first since it s freshest in my memory right now.After flying through the last 75% of Forging Zero, I immediately started reading Zero Recall I always brace myself when going into sequels because they have a tendency to crash and burn Since I loved Forging Zero so much, I was terrified I wouldn t love Zero Recall to the same extent The huge time gap also made me nervous, since there s something so intriguing about the child commander concept I was afraid that a grown up Zero would lose a bit of the magic Turns out, I had nothing to fear.By the time my Kindle s progress bar showed 5%, I was already completely sucked into Zero Recall The new characters are fascinating and the different POVs make the story even ominous I ended up pulling an all nighter to finish the book, even though I pulled an all nighter just a few days ago to finish the first book.There were times when I was a bit confused, though I blame that on my rush to find out what happened next I suspect I ll answer most of my questions when I reread at a reasonable pace The twists and turns really took me by surprise, especially the ending I have a lot of questions that I will not get answered until Zero s Return I think it s so amazing that Sara King has written these books so quickly, and I m so thankful that we shouldn t have to wait too long for the next few books in this series 5 5 stars

    This is one of the best new entries in the SF market begins with Forging Zero which is an Ender s Game for grownups Sara King does dialogue and plots v well and v intricately The second Zero Recall is better than the first amazing aliens, interspecies friendships, carefully crafted plotlines with different POVs all this securely tethered to the wonderful human hero Joe The thankfully long books are never boring, largely because the nonhuman species are well conceived and surprised me the Barga was just fantastic While there are many aspects derivative of other s work, that s pretty much the rule for SF and the author has selected the things I like the most references words that are rarely explained think Ridley Walker or Feersum Enjin , new aliens think old Jack Chalker Well of Worlds , intricate plotting Iain M Banks RIP Interestingly 3 of my favorite new authors started out self publishing free or nearly so Brent Weeks both Way of Shadows and Black Prism , Mike Shevdon 61 nails and now Sara King I ve been most happy to pay money after my freebie for every book they write.

    Ok I marked this one with a 5 because I love the idea of living mold The thought of seeing some fuzzy thing on the bark of a tree that can communicate and has an active intelligence intrigues me With this story I found myself at times a little confused and realized I was trying to hard to figure out some predictable ending Ms King is nowhere near predictable which means I was giving myself headaches and getting slightly grumpy in my quest to figure it all out I recommend when you finish this book the first time you go back over the 1st chapter, it looks entirely different once you know where it s headed In reality I enjoyed reading the entire book a second time I found myself picking up on so many ques I hadn t noticed before I guess I m just used to everyone writing the same cookie cutter books where I know the answer before I m 1 3 of the way through it This book, thankfully, does not fit that cookie cutter mold Ms King, thanks for the good read, keep it up I m ready for the next one.

    It s a very good Space Opera, also a buddy book with a lot of action, and very fun.Tremendous characters, very good story.If you re in Sci Fi like Jack Vance s that book is meant for you.Even better than Forging Zero.

    Of the new sci fi series that I ve read in the last few years, this is one of 3 that gets five stars from me This book made for several almost sleepless nights, as it was virtually impossible to put down Often the second book in the series doesn t live up to the first one, but Zero Recall exceeded my expectations It has everything, and I mean everything, you would want in your sci fi adventure, epic battles, unpredictable complex plot lines, intriguingly different species, amazing world building, unlikely friendship, humor, and memorable characters that you care about.The only nit I have with this book is the character names races, some of which are hard to pronounce and keep separate it slows down my reading speed quite a bit when I have to stop and think about which race is which I highly recommend marking the sections in Forging Zero and Zero Recall where the races are described And I referred back to the original prophecies in Forging Zero too quite a few times At the end of the book, the author recommends re reading a couple of chapters, which is definitely worth doing And even though it s one in a series of books, you aren t left hanging at the end one of my pet peeves I just hope the other books in the series come out quickly they are definitely on my must read list

    Great characters and camaraderie, which is how I got through 2 of these But calling your books character driven science fiction does not get you off the hook when it comes to the science part There s no world building here, no science no physics, no evolutionary biology, no planetary science, no ethnography nothing that gives us a sense of the scale of an intergalactic really federation that s been around for 3 million really years Where are all the complex AI life forms there is exactly one Why does the Army call itself an Army in existence 3M years prior to contact w humans Why does it have a chow hall Why is Congress recognizable in any way to the human mind In short, this is good in many of the ways that Star Trek is good, and terrible in all of the ways that it s terrible King doesn t understand lay vs lie and a number of other mechanical components of English She is quite enad of herself her afterword is full of claims about how much her books will blow your mind When I realized that this was not a trilogy but an endless series, I decided to bail if you can t finish your series in 3, I m out.

    I feared, after finishing Forging Zero, that the series would fall into the common trap that successful series fall into, and devolve into a serial string of adventure of the week stories, with no overall progress or change However, Zero Recall managed to completely avoid this mistake, introducing changes in Zero himself, as well as shifting the focus of the story I would argue that this book is not so much about Zero as it is about the development and expansion of about three of his sidekicks enemies And it is by no means a repeat of the first book with a different setting It is a completely different sort of story.The plot line was quite well crafted and intricate, without being too contrived What I really love is when there is an intricate storyline like this that spans several books There are some hints that King is planning a very vast storyline, but most of the complicated parts of this story seem to have fit into this book without spilling over.

    Overall, I thought this was a better work than Forging Zero There s some nice complexity to the story, and several layers of narrative There are minor editing consistency issues to be expected as an indie work Flea s inability to count over 6 is only invoked when convenient or humorous, while he seems to know what in 20 tics means when the plot can t be bothered with those constraints view spoiler I felt like the biggest problem with this book was the constant dependency on Huoyut shape shifting to drive surprises It reminded me of Mission Impossible 2 s ridiculous number of mask driven deceptions hide spoiler

    Vp i,e 2 in the Legend of Zero series is the best of a good good series Action packed as was the first book, but with delightful character development of featured alien characters and a surprise plot twist.One should definitely read Forging Zero first to get the background for this story.My rating system star 1 couldn t finish book2 finished book, but didn t like it3 a good read4 a very good read often with a novel concept or unusual plot5 an exceptionally good read, a prominent example of the genre

    My review of Zero Recall is meant to explore why this book is a special contribution to space fiction I will list some points to help you see whether you might want to step into the world of this book.The writing can bring you into another world.The writing creates a new world and brings you into a different time, place and reality The role of planetary ops, to which Zero is recalled, is to maintain the peace between Dasha, Jreet, Jahual, Genuji, Baga and the three thousand other species that are part of the Congress We have to learn the traits, roles and loyalties of several races to follow the story The author weaves fascinating characters, who were born on different worlds and belong to tribes with their own motivations, into one unified story This book takes you to places crossing from truth to fiction, fantasy and imagination New worlds are brought to life in this book The world and worlds of this story intrigues the reader and introduces characters and a central mystery This is a big mystery story.The first book in the series was military fiction This book is keeping secrets, there are things going on that the characters within the story do not know and the readers do not know We readers take a journey to find out why things are happening and who is gaining at each turn With each passing page we become immersed inside a mystery that will affect our feeling and opinions about different characters If you like mysteries you will probably appreciate the twists and turns on the way to revelation.There are many interesting detailed, well developed characters.We know Zero from the first book Zero is and less than he was before Our attitudes go through several changes as we see Maggie as his commander We don t trust Maggie, but we don t know why, she should be friends and with Zero, shouldn t she be Is Davlin just the mindless killing machine on the team, or does he have a textured rule to play Can Jer ait be trusted, or will he betray Zero as everyone warns Zero will happen Is Baga going to be a useful team member or is he just trouble Forgotten is controlling some events like a puppet master, but what does he control and where are events beyond his control What does the future hold for Rat, and will Zero and Rat ever have a than military relationship What is the secret about Zero s brother Will we learn about his brother, Sam, and how has he changed from the child Zero saved years earlier The relationship between characters is complex and multi layered I want to know what happens next with character s development and future interactions There are embedded secrets, change and surprises.Many mysteries are untangled in the course of the story There are surprises about Zero s old team And the members of his new team are all than they seem The new team begins as divided individuals and they are almost unable to work together, but move to depend on each other and become inseparable I became and invested in the relationship between the team members Individuals grow and develop, enemies becoming partners, friends becoming enemies and strangers become friends Such is the nature of well developed stories that can hold the readers attention.I am waiting for what comes next.The book leaves me wanting While we get closure with many mysteries revealed, I still want to know where some stories are going I still do not know what the game of the Trith is, except they hate Congress I don t know if Zero will find love I don t know who is not who they seem OK, this was a pet peeve of mine, I don t like people being someone else who is imitating a friend I do like that the story is embedded with future clues that are hidden I followed the author s suggestion to re read chapter 1 and chapter 5, and saw the hints she had tucked away to be revealed on the second reading I am even looking forward to a second reading of the whole book to see how my appreciation of the story might change I enjoyed this book and am anxiously awaiting the next book in the series I would say the most likely audience is people who are interested in character driven stories than tech or military driven stories This book has fighting and war, but is not just a military story I would recommend reading the first book in the series first, but realize the first Zero book is much darker and has a different feel than this book Also prospective readers should read The Moldy Dead short story before reading this sequel Give it a try, I think you will like it, although it might disrupt your sleep pattern as you forget to go to sleep when you refuse to put it down
