This time it's Killian Melloy of the amusingly named pop culture site wigglefish.com, with a nice review of A Time for War, a Time for Peace:
The tone overall is one of denouement. Even the shady dealings and political attitudes at work behind the Presidential election seem tame after the wild ride in the eighth book, David Mack's riveting A Time to Heal. Overall, where Mack's two books where like a fighter jet, this book is more of a glider, and DeCandido brings the series to a close rather quietly, though with grace and style. This isn't a complaint. You won't be bored by the book. You just might want to shift your expectations a little and be prepared to savor and reflect.
