Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Review: 2019.621 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: It’s a pretty straight-up conflict, in which Amanda is fighting for her cause and her own life. There are great good guys, evil bad guys, lots of action, lots of tension, and even quite a few laughs.

Con: It can’t stand alone; even having read the earlier episodes, I got confused a number of times. Someone coming to this cold would be hopelessly lost.

Amanda is so powerful now that it starts to break suspension of disbelief. She’s not just the resistance; she’s the most powerful person in the Jupiter system.
