The Saga of the Seven Suns is one of those expansive Sci-Fi universes that just sucks you in. I have heard a few negative people complain that it was not realistic in some way. That is possible in fiction.

For years, the alien Klikiss robots have pretended to be humanity’s friends, but their seeming “help” allowed them to plant an insidious Trojan Horse throughout the Earth Defense Forces. Now, in the aftermath of a devastating war, swarms of ancient black robots built by the lost insectoid Klikiss race continue their depredations on helpless worlds with stolen and heavily armed Earth battleships.

Among the humans, the Hansas’ brutal Chairman struggles to crush any resistance even as King Peter breaks away to form his own new Confederation among the colonies who have declared their independence.

And meanwhile, the original, voracious Klikiss race, long thought to be extinct, has returned, intent on conquering their former worlds and willing to annihilate anyone in the way.

“Rapid-fire action and panoramic plotting make this a first-class space opera.” —Library Journal


Reviews about Metal Swarm (Saga of Seven Suns Series) (7):
Ceck
One of the names for the area of Space they are in is The Spiral Arm and that is a perfect word to describe these works, for a spiral can continue on for a very long time and you can roll forward or backward to find the threads that make it great.

Great book. Definitely, a great story. I really love this series. In a time of short stories being marketed as books on Amazon, this is a true epic series. A mixture of science fiction and fantasy, this is an engaging group of story lines that make it hard to put the book down.

The Kindle version of the book has some font issues. Most of the time the font is the size that I have it set at. However,there are segments in the book where the font is really small and some place where it is really big. Then it changes back to the standard size. Very distracting.

Not sure why I'm leaving another review because this saga by Kevin J Anderson is absolutely amazing. I can't wait to read the next book.

The four-star rating applies to books up through 5--books 6 and 7 only merit a 3-star rating. If the story would have been tightened up to fit into 5 books, this could have been a really great series instead of just a good series. The plot is complex with many characters, which is fine, especially because the author breaks out each character's story arc into short chapters so it's very clear when the reader switches character viewpoints. The scope of the plot is also interesting with several races and many sub-plots. However, the series is just too long. By the middle of book 6, when the author introduces yet another major sub-plot involving something that seemed to be relegated to the past (won't be more specific to avoid any spoliers). Because of the length of the series, it gets a bit repetitive by the end, especially given that the conflicts are resolved too easily in the same pattern, especially since forces outside of the main characters are the primary means to resolution. Still, if you like long series, this one is worth reading even though it runs out of gas before the books run out of pages.

I've read the 5 previous books and the 6th (Metal Swarm ) doesn't disappoint. You either love this series or you hate it. No in between.

I like it because it's like reading 4 or 5 books all in one. A long book that is made up of intertwining short stories.

It takes a long time for the plot to develop and that is why some people do hate this series. After all we live in a society of instant gratification.

My suggestion, pick up the first in the series and read 20 pages in the bookstore. Either it'll grab you and I'll see you on book 6 in no time or it won't and no worries.

I would like to offer an overall review of all seven books combined. Even though each book has its own sub-plots, one has to read all seven to stitch every piece together. Unless you plan to read all of them (a major time commitment) I suggest that you go find yourself something shorter to read. This is an epic saga.

I find the books and the story hard to classify. It is science fiction, but what kind? The story starts as if it is going to be hard science fiction. (That's why I probably consider the first book to be the best.) But then it degenerates into several parallel threads, many of which are pure fantasies. By the end of the seventh book, I felt that 90% of the threads and plot were more appropriately described as fantasy than science fiction.

Even if you prefer fantasy over hard science fiction, you will still be disappointed by the repeated "deus ex machina" saving the day. I count seven such cases, three of them occurring in the last volume. Anderson is very good in weaving a complex story to its crescendo and creating a very tense (nearly hopeless) situation for the heroes. Then he cannot get them out of there in any plausible way, and he resorts to dues ex machina time after time. Because of that, you will feel disappointed (perhaps even cheated) once you finish the story, even if you will find it entertaining most of the way.

The characters are one-dimensional. There are good sub-plots of love, hatred, betrayal, revenge... The evil is really evil, and the good-guys could do no wrong. If you don't mind that, you may enjoy the saga.

The Saga of the Seven Suns is one of those expansive Sci-Fi universes that just sucks you in. I have heard a few negative people complain that it was not realistic in some way. That is possible in fiction. I had no problem suspending my disbelief and diving into the well developed characters and massive story. If you enjoy a big space opera, put this on your list!
I'm not entirely sure why I keep reading this series. The writing style is only mediocre. The characterizations are very superficial and so is the plot development. The best thing I can say about it is that at least it hasn't gotten boring.
