Though committed to helping their V’Dan cousins, the Terrans resent how their allies treat them.
The V’Dan in turn feel the Terrans are too unseasoned to act independently.
And the other nations fear that ending the Salik War means starting a Human Civil War.
Even as Imperial Prince Li’eth and Ambassador Jackie MacKenzie struggle to get their peoples to cooperate, they still face an ethical dilemma:
How do you stop a ruthless, advanced nation from attacking again and again without slaughtering them in turn?
Thank you so much Johnson for making it easy for a first time reader to slide right into the book without having to read the previous books first. Although I now plan on picking up the previous books because I enjoyed reading The Blockade so much.
This book picks up at quite a quick pace because the adventure and war are at its pique and its cast are having to scramble to save themselves and their people from devastation.
Johnson does a great job making the reader feel the building tension and apprehension chapter to chapter but she also brings heart to the table as well. There's a sort of human element that pulls you in and makes you feel for the struggle and the hope and the hurt the characters go through.
I really like emotional reads because it gives you as a reader something deeper to connect to on a personal level and Johnson does it well.
Yay for The Blockade - a really great read!
