    "Great End"

    this book does very well wrapping it up and feeling like it is the end without be completely final.

    This was my favourite book after the first 3. I would still love to know where the missing alien weapons went from book 5.

    "Great final chapter"

    Amazing as always, great ending to the series and does a good job of wrapping all the story lines up nicely. Hope he revisits the world to bridge the gap between this series and rebel stars.

    "I love everything about this series"

    Breakers stays as an outbreak story, then becomes a post-apocalyptic survival story, then an alien invasion story, then a war story. I'm a sucker for several of those story archetypes, so this is right up my alley, but Breakers transcends all that by being something more. Breakers is about people, both human and alien people, finding a way to keep going despite the odds against them. It starts with discrete groups of people in different places, but Robertson weaves their stories together, so that it keeps coming back to some of the key players. It was like meeting up with old friends every time he'd come back to folks I hadn't heard from in a novel or two. The characters are whole, flawed beings, and Robertson spent enough time on them to make them real, something that some authors don't do.

    I didn't love the narrator at first. A little too gruff and dramatic, but he grew on me, probably because I loved the story so much that I started associating his voice with something I loved.

    The series ends beautifully, with wistfulness and hope, and it left me in tears. Thank you, Mr. Robertson.

    "A riveting finale for the Breakers series"

    As this book concludes, one can only be fascinated by the possible centuries-later sequels that might be ahead. As an avid reader, I'm enthralled by the thought.

    As for this finale, it pulls together all the surviving lead characters of the series and weaves their lives, their adventures and their conflicts into a can't-put-it-down tale.

    As always, Raina is a fascinating mix of cunning animal and an increasingly perceptive young woman. Walt remains Mr. Grit and incredibly also Mr. Luck. Mauser stands fast as an ineloquent but wise second and Ness and Sebastian remain the most unlikely but loyal pair of friends I've encountered in 6+decades or reading science fiction.

    "An ending that sets a new standard for sci-fi..."

    What a terrific series ending finale! Loss, redemption, resilience, forgiveness, regret, hope, encouragement, love, and acceptance from front to back.All the major characters are brought together for one last battle to outshine the others! In Nt he slight chance that this series is ever brought to tv (I think the production team behind Walking Dead would be perfect..definitely AMC) then fans worldwide would drop all other plans and geek out while sharing the love of the mythos. Ray Chase delivers again (his Mauser is reminds me of Hugh Jackman for some reason), if theres a Noblel for audio books then he's a shoo-in...Im spreading the word of this series everywhere, I LOOOVE IT.

    I loved the narrator. The story line kept me intrigued. Don't let the amount of books in the series scare you away.

    Great ending to a great series. Does a good job of wrapping up all of the different storylines. The voice acting was superb and really brought life to all the characters.

    "Consistency issues"

    I find the series after Knifepoint likes to ignore a lot of what happened in Knifepoint.

    Nobody remembers each other? Ness and Sebastian hunted down Walt, made him tell his story, and then abandoned him on an island. And nobody remembers that when they all meet up again? At least the author suggests no recognition on any side. Drives me crazy.

    Also Ness and Raina had met in Knifepoint too, but Raina recognizes the sub and not Ness? And vice versa? And when they meet in Knifepoint Ness is described with alien tattoos on his body. What happens to those in the rest of the series? Ness also supposedly changed a lot between Meltdown and Knifepoint, becoming a hard warrior that Raina recognizes in his eyes immediately, and she actually somewhat fears him (at least that was my take). But that impression, and the fact that he personally helped in the assualt on Catalina is just no nevermind when everyone meets up again?

    Back to the description of Raina's impression, after Knifepoint the author ignores this hardened warrior Ness is supposed to have been. And he's more like he was at Hanover during Meltdown, stuck between the scared kid he was and the driven force he was learning to be.

    Overall I like the series but this has been bothering me since Knifepoint. I wish the author had kept his consistency. There could have been a lot of "Ah! It's you!" when they all met up again which would've been fun. And I just don't understand the flip flop on Ness.
