The Living Force
The other side of Midnight is the best so far. Based on the hierarchy C's mentioned 4D STS to humans and variations w.r.t locations, capabilities, densities etc., I kept thinking author can't go further than last book and she kept going deep into other layers of hierarchy. This book is troubling and shocking and I have stop at some point and pick up again.Ca a week ago I finished reading The Other Side of Midnight, so I've now read all the 8 first books of the series. I don't have that much to add to what has been said already, but I thought that The Other Side of Midnight was the author's best so far – the quality of writing and story telling was captivating. I think I'm gonna take a break now from this series and go back reading Laura's latest (half way through that).
Yes, C's said much worst scenario's, but reading the novels emotionally hits. As others said, wrapper of the novel's plot line is same, but suddenly she starts spilling the beans later part of the novels, it hits us hard and make it worth the reading. This novel is troubling and shocking. I thought happy ending is little bit too simplified, which is expected. These dark races that want to survive looks as ignorant and helpless as we are on the surface despite their advantage over us. Interestingly C's said, they are completely controllable. I am not sure whether this author goes to the depth of "Jupiter Ascending" movie. She throws Inca race in between making me wonder( probably part of population they taken down and use them to control us) , this author reads C's transcripts?
