Very satisfying ending to an excellent, and under-rated, science fiction trilogy. All three of the Matador books making up this trilogy The Man Who Never Missed , Matadora and this book are well written, fast paced books that are seem to pack a lot of story into their pages. In this finale of the first trilogy, the war against the corrupt Confederation that has been brewing for the first two novels finally begins and the action never stops. Highly recommended for fans of action-p 4. Highly recommended for fans of action-packed science fiction.
Their only hope of survival-and vengeance-lies in the strength of Black Steel. View 1 comment. This was different. The Confed, in its infinite wisdom, recently declared them all criminals. She returned his fire with a half-dozen darts, three for each man. The plan was still working. He chuckled.
Apr 26, Wade rated it really liked it. A good closing for an enjoyable trilogy of pulp sci fi. There were several places, especially in this final book, where I had to turn off my critical side to be able to fully enjoy it: most of these times were attached to Wall or Massey, who I thought had potential to be much more intelligently written characters but who I don't think Perry gave enough attention to. All in all, Perry sticks to his strengths and writes an entertaining, fast paced story who's themes, if not depth and complexity, i A good closing for an enjoyable trilogy of pulp sci fi.
All in all, Perry sticks to his strengths and writes an entertaining, fast paced story who's themes, if not depth and complexity, inspire thoughtfulness.
I think stories like this can often outgrow their authors, but Perry does a good job of staying focused on his task and not being spread out and diluted by the breadth of possibilities. If you want to see an unimaginably big and corrupt government fall to the perspicacity of a few who have had enough and want to see it change, without getting bogged down in the details; if you like action and intrigue; if you like quick reads that have a laser focus; you might like The Matador.
Oct 25, Mike rated it really liked it Shelves: library , scifi. The Machiavelli Interface is a satisfying, 4 star conclusion to the Matador Trilogy. Perry writes a sparse novel but he covers all the bases. For the first time in the series, the Confederation, in the person of Marcus Wall, becomes a sinister, evil presence.
Mostly though, it is oppressive as a bureaucracy. Surprisingly the Confed Empire capital city is Canberra, Australia. Always knew we should watch those Aussies closely! The Matadors are charged to take down the Confed. Plenty of fast-paced battles and attractive characters make this a quick, fun read. Sep 22, Jack Ziegler rated it liked it Shelves: science-fiction. This was a very fun, light read. I got the book in a bag of used books for a dollar from the Brookline MA Booksmith store.
I certainly feel like I've gotten much more than my dollar's worth. Maybe it was because I just jumped into the third book of the trilogy, but I was slow getting into the future evolved language. But, it didn't really take too long to catch on. The author gave enough context clues if you were looking for them. Dec 27, Robert Thompson rated it it was amazing Shelves: sci-fi-favourites , favourites , I had high expectations for this book. I wasn't disappointed, much. Not to say that a little disappointment isn't good for a book. Getting everything that you expect makes for a dull read.
The Matador series has been anything but dull.
