I've read the previous novels in this series (Thanks, NetGalley), and I couldn't wait to discover what Amanda Bridgeman could deliver with this one.
Aurora: Darwin - reviewed here.
Aurora: Pegasus - reviewed here.
I may have thought this would be a trilogy and that Aurora: Meridian would be the final installment, but that is not the case. There will be at least one more novel, maybe more.
OK -- Meridian didn't work as well for me as the previous novels have. Carrie's behavior seemed foolish and put others in jeopardy. (You know how you have a character's personality in mind from reading the other novels he/she has appeared in? Carrie's behavior in Meridian didn't match my vision of her.) There are 3 reviews on Amazon that have a more positive take on this third book in the series, however, so my opinion may be skewed by personal preference.
Have to admit that, although not as pleased with this one, I eagerly await the next book in the series. Saul is beginning to admit the importance of his dreams, the spy has been detected, and the members of the crew are prepared to tackle the bad guys with renewed determination.
