I find it difficult to rate and review this book. Overall I found it quite enjoyable to read, enough for a four star rating, but I also got the feeling that the book series is not progressing as I would have liked and has perhaps even outstayed it’s welcome a wee bit.

The first books were rather straightforward space adventure pitting humans against a technologically superior foe. Great action, technically and scientifically sound, great characters and generally well written.

In the latest book you sometimes get the feeling that the author is struggling to invent more and more mysterious and complicated enemies and plots. The enemies are everything from intelligent bacteria to huge planet sized brains. The action is generally fairly one sided where the various alien entities beat the crap out of the humans and any victories for the home team is not won by superior tactics and military prowess but by various complicated schemes using things the humans do not really fully understand.

In addition to this little gripe of mine the author spends a lot of time wandering out into technological and, sometimes, philosophical musings. It is difficult for me to complain about this since I generally like science fiction that has a solid foundation in science but you can have too much of everything. In this book I felt like there was just too much info-dumping going on. It was like a musical where the plot is interrupted by some song and dance every so often except in the book it was interrupted by these long blobs of text which did not really move the plot forward.

However, despite this I quite enjoyed the book. It could have been better as far as I am concerned but it is still a good and well written book. ( )

Star Carrier Dark Mind was a decent continuation of the series. Douglas uses this book to investigate everything from intelligent gut bacteria to self aware computer generated beings. The action focuses on Admiral Trevor Sandy Gray and his interaction with Konstantin an Artificial Intelligence. It at times looks like buddy film. Yet its not that simple. Gray harbors a deep seated distrust of all the technological wonders of this age. Gray begins to wonder whether the AI's that are integral to this civilization are working for humanity or running it. This questioning of AI's seems to be a theme running through this novel. I liked this novel but didn't love it. I found myself putting the book down to do other projects. It may be that the series needs a conclusion in my mind. At this point the Douglas is producing interesting situations that his characters must cope with. How long he can do this is an open question. Maybe he is working toward and ultimate confrontation between the Dark Mind and Konstantin or between Earth and the UrSh'daar Masters No matter what direction Douglas choses to go I hope he has a conclusion in mind.
