Regeneration Species Imperative #3 Kindle ¿

Regeneration Species Imperative #3 Regeneration is the concluding book of the Species Imperative trilogy by Julie Czerneda finishing up where Survival and Migration had left off We finally get to learn the story behind the evident rampage of the Dhryn across the galaxy and what the ultimate goals of the Ro are The nitpicks I had with the first two books still apply here and I have to admit that towards the ending of the story I started skimming rather than reading in depth which suggests to me that the book could have used maybe one edit passBy and large though I did uite enjoy reading it I approve of carrying out a romance with a love interest who actually gets very little screen time which makes the time he is on screen effective Though the swoonability of Nik aside or should I be saying yumminess? Har I also have to admit that I found the final resolutions between the characters just a tad too romance novel tidy I was almost disappointed that Mudge didn't get to be the love interest after all I mean he got way screen time getting his character developed and having his relationship with Mac progress and I kinda feel like the poor man deserved to get the girl after all that ; Having him do the Hero Thing and clonk Nik out and then stay behind was a pretty good substitute but then I think that I'd have liked that plot path a little better if he had indeed heroically died As it happens having him get to be alive at the end and presumably free to pursue amorous intentions towards the second in command of the Annapolis Joy seemed a little too predictable and patI really did like the lamnas rings though Those were a very cool little way of keeping Nik's activities on the reader's mind even if he wasn't actually on camera and I also liked that what Mac got out of them was very jagged and erratic which I felt very neatly reflected that Nik wasn't an expert at using the things and had no idea what they would actually do And I was vaguely bummed that Mac didn't check what was in the last oneAnyway a decent book overall Taken as a whole the Species Imperative Trilogy isn't as solid as the Web Shifters one nor A Thousand Words for Stranger I'd say three stars for this book maybe three and a half for the series as a whole A wonderful conclusion to an outstanding series What we've got here is a cranky scientist Mac who just wants to spend time with her data but who isn't gonna get it The series gets off to a slow start but after a while you can't help loving her characterOverall Julie Czerneda has outdone herself this time The trilogy is full of what she does best fun and fascinating aliens It's also got several lovable characters who it is just plain fun to spend time with This book is a strong conclusion to a great series Worth a read if you can be patient with the setup in the first book of the trilogy This is the third and final book in the Species Imperative series and I recommend all three of the books The main character is a salmon researcher and heads a facility off the NW coast of either Canada or the US not sure which several hundred years in the future There are several species of aliens who play major roles in these stories and they are creatively drawn The earth is under threat from one of the alien species and solving who the threat is and them eliminating that threat is the theme through all three books There are also other issues going on in the lives of the characters and the character development is excellent Regeneration is the end of a trilogy and I think I liked it even better than the trilogy that ended with To Trade the Stars The science part of the sci fi was heavily weighted towards the biological and Czerneda’s alien species were fascinating I also loved the main character and found her interaction with her students and friends so charming that my children learned the teasing chant “No ribs for Mac No ribs for Mac Mac gets salad and BEER” Um guess you had to be there Anyways though the start of each book is a little slow I highly recommend this series And it also gets the coveted “appeals to both sexes award” as my husband gobbled up this series too A solid end to a well written if overly detailed trilogy I would only recommend this series to someone who's a World Building Super Fan Czerneda is much concerned with backstory and characterization than plot and while that's usually a good thing a bit balance would be nice Still the last 200 pages were very compelling Love this series very attached to the characters there's a bit of historical sci fi mystery thrown in along with suspense and Just go read it And Czerneda is a Canadian biologist Love Also read Jack McDevitt if you like this sort of book No ribs for Mac Mac gets SALAD and BEER Good trilogy all around really good trilogy if you are a biology nerd like me A rip roaring good tale from start to finishThis is a cohesive story starting with book 1 all the way though to its very end in book 3 Great development of characters each with plenty of personality and humor A story line that kept me coming back for and left me wondering if there's to come Yes please With the alien Dhryn cutting a pathway through the inhabited spaceways bringing about the annihilation of many of the races who have the misfortune to lie along the star trail they are following time is running out for all sentient life forms Can biologists Mackenzie Connor and Emily Mamami solve the riddle of the Dhryn before their part of the galaxy becomes as dead as the mysterious region known as the Chasm Great ending to a great series
