New Horizons

New Horizons, the fourth installment of the Host Saga by Michael Farlow. This science fiction, drama, and action novel feature Van Childs and his allies as they prepare for imminent hostile contact with the Arkon. When losing crew members and mysterious sabotage efforts hinder the shipbuilding process, Van and his allies struggle to gain the upper hand as the Arkon fleet approaches. Will Van find a way to gather the allies and resources the Galactic Host needs before it’s too late? The suspense has never been greater than in this installment of the series!

This novel excels for several reasons, but the biggest is the apparent military experience from its author. It will be clear to anyone who reads this exciting novel that the writer authentically understands the politics and drama of the military and knows how to instill it into the plot of his story. If you’re a military enthusiast, these books will be an excellent addition to your library.

For me, though, I have been fascinated with each book and the growth of these characters. Specifically, I’m heavily invested in how they interact with Van, their leader. It says quite a bit about the author that there is so much attention given to interpersonal conflicts, even amid space warfare. It really is about the people, no matter the setting, and Farlow captures that sentiment entirely. I’m not a military buff, but these books have captured my attention because Farlow has made likable characters, and you want them to succeed in their endeavors. If this author continues to publish books, I’ll continue to read them. He knows how to develop characters, build suspense, and paint an action scene while staying authentic to the military experience of his past.

New Horizons: Host Saga Book 4 is a well-crafted space opera that takes readers on a suspenseful and thrilling action-packed adventure through space.
