The last of the Orphanage series. This was good story with a mildly unsatisfactory ending. I wish that Robert had spent a few pages telling us how such an unusual species developed spacefaring technology. The story has the feel of the Forever War ( )

The last novel of the Orphanage series yet again does not fail to deliver a fast-paced military fiction novel which will probably keep you reading end to end.

One of the things it sort of fails to deliver, though, is a good ending to the series. Even though the pace winds down in general, and there's a lot less actual fighting going on compared to the previous books, it still feels like Buettner didn't bother braking for the end.

To say it in other words, the ending of the series sort of sucks. It features some nice themes, and even though it probably tries to establish a parallel to the "war is an orphanage" topic, it feels just a bit too sparsely populated by anything else than a lone, cynical Jason Wander doing What's Right[tm], and in the end even surprising himself.

If the author would split the book up into two and appropiately flesh them out to the quality they deserve, I might've been more appreciative.

Nevertheless, the book in itself is quite entertaining. ( )

Seeing a series end is always a little difficult. You’ve been with the characters for all of the triumphs and downfalls. You’ve watched them, in some cases, grow from a snot-nosed kid into a world-weary adult and you still want the story to continue. Questions pop up, like: Did all of the loose ends get tied up? In Orphan’s Triumph, I say yes, they did.

What starts out as the finale to a fun, fast paced military science fiction series really is more of a commentary on modern war and what it does to the people who must fight it. I am being deliberately vague in the hopes that you are intrigued enough to go pick up the series, because it is really worth reading. While in some places the whole series may feel a little bit formulaic (i.e., the good guys finally get their footing, oh #&@$ something really bad happens to them) it never stops being a page turner. Essentially, I’m trying to let you know that I’m in love with this series, but without spoiling the ending…

Whether or not the ending is entirely believable is up to you when you read it. I absolutely loved it, though. One of my big questions whenever a series of any kind ends is “was the ending satisfying,” and after all that Jason has been through, it’s for once the best possible result — shocker I know. If you’re a fan of intergalactic battles with non-humanoid bad guys, humans fighting at horrible odds but, because of their own ingenuity, managing to make it, or just a good read, you should start at the beginning with Orphanage. I promise you will not be disappointed. This book gets a solid A from me, and the series as a whole get’s an A+ in high action science fiction. ( )
