Marque of Caine (Tales of the Terran Republic, #5)Marque of Caine by Charles E. Gannon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

After leaving his previous command with many plot-threads left hanging in the prior book, this one sets itself up as a bit of a wanderer.

That's not bad. We have his quest to find the mother of his child, the ongoing mystery of a very powerful alien race that has something in mind for him, and a ton of political intrigue in the wider universe that will either spell survival or doom for the human race.

Not bad. Add a ton of interesting reveals about that alien species, gather together a rag-tag crew of ex-soldiers on a de-mothballed ship, and we've got ourselves the Odyssey. With virtual realms, real-space, and risky ventures all around.

There is no real wrap up, but as they always say, the adventure is in the journey, not the destination.
