Summary

Fergus is back on Earth at last, trying to figure out how to live a normal life. However, it seems the universe has other plans for him. When his cousin sends him off to help out a friend, Fergus accidently stumbles across a piece of an ancient alien artifact that some very powerful people seem to think means the entire solar system is in danger. And since he’s the one who found it, they’re certain it’s also his problem to deal with.

With the help of his newfound sister, friends both old and new, and some enemies, too, Fergus needs to find the rest of the artifact and destroy the pieces before anyone can reassemble the original and open a multidimensional door between Earth and a vast, implacable, alien swarm. Problem is, the pieces could be anywhere on Earth, and he’s not the only one out searching.

Excellent story but....

All in all the story is engaging and fun however you can feel the lockdown and culture war in this latest entry. The author is talented enough to where her little additions didn't detract from the plot. But they were there, little sprinklings of white guilt, gun control, "Christian" hategroups, and most bizarre a traditional Mongolian tribesmen using they them pronouns as though that would be a thing in a 25th century after people had real problems to deal with. Also I don't think any one in the 25th century would harp so much on climate change it should just be an unremarkable part of their reality. The plot is still great the main characters are compelling. I just think the author needs to spend time with normal people again, not let the divide get to her so much.

An absolutely amazing story, but start with the first book

The series has become one of my absolute favorites. It has deep character development. Interesting villains, and truly laugh out loud moments.
One of the things I appreciate about the Finder series is that it runs the full gambit from humor to suspense while creating a fascinating cast of characters. The protagonist Fergus Ferguson is kind of like a MacGyver with an attitude problem and a complicated history.
My one piece of advice is start off with the first book because it helps you get a clearer picture and the rest of the series will make more sense.

She’s a good writer but had to get insultingly political.

I enjoyed the story but was stunned by two things. The first was just laughable. She has no idea what Fajitas are. The second was a slap at Christians that had nothing to do with the plot. There are so many highly educated Christians who are political moderates. There is no reason to express such uninformed bigotry towards Christians. If you decide to read this book, you will recognize it when you read it. Can we not read a book without being slapped by bigoted politics ??

Ruined ending (spoiler)

Unknown potentially lethal creatures? Not certain there will be breathable atmosphere? I'm taking my exo-suit off because I do not want to ruin it.

A Hot Mess

Nowhere near the level of the first two books in the series. The "end of the world" premise never feels credible or creates suspense. The plot is full of holes. Most of the characters are one dimensional. So much time spent on food and geography. The ending is a cop out. But Fergus is a great protagonist and I will read the next book and hope for better.

Give me the next one please!

This series started with a clever protagonist and not so simple heist. In this book it takes the depth created in the second book and gives it even more heart.

Easily one of my favourite current series.

Ive enjoyed all these books a great deal.

Very entertaining set of books. I really like all the descriptions of the different characters as well as all the accents.
