    1. Warning: spoilers embedded in the review.Well…it was an okay book, not a bad read, but…there were issues. Note that this is the third book of a series, of which at this writing I have not yet read (much less have found) the first two.It starts out all nice and good as we are introduced to Lalelelang, a researcher of the bird-like Wais, who are members of a collection of interstellarly connected races called The Weave. Her specialty: humans. Now, for the Weave, combat, violence, etc, is prett [...]

    2. What happens when you win a war? What do you do with soldiers acclimated to violence when the rest of your society is not? In his concluding volume of the series, Alan Dean Foster's focus is not on the climactic march to victory over the Amplitur, as you would ordinarily expect to be the case in a trilogy focused on an interstellar war.It is instead on the problem of re-integrating the veterans of the war - and the "too-primitive" violent humans - into a society that is at best uneasy with them. [...]

    3. I finished the series and felt about this book the way I felt about the other two. I keep wishing for better, or for more. I can really only recommend this series if you're looking for something very different and specifically, where humanity just kicks the snot out of everything else. The scenario is a fun one and I've yet to find anything that explores it better. But it is lacking. Characters are paper thin and there's a lot of plot twists that come from nowhere. I don't mind a plot twist or t [...]

    4. This is still a good read, but we had to come up with a way to tie the story up and I found it a little less than what it might have been. Still, it's enjoyable. The story here seems almost a little "hurried" to me. he got to the end, he knew what the end was how the plot was going to be tied up and got it down. Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad book, it's still based on a good idea, a good read and to use the word I used for the the others, "fun". It just slid a bit and as the second wasn't qu [...]

    5. The best of the series. Here, a pacifistic bird-like alien sociologist embeds herself with a human regiment in a galactic war. In this universe, humans are the only naturally warlike species; all others are variously inept at fighting for reasons of authorial convenience. (This was the a terrible stumbling block for me throughout the entire series.)The action sequences are well done, the broader plot elements were clever, the people were interesting, the penultimate section was terrific and the [...]

    6. This was the last book in the series and I enjoyed it. There are some contrived twists that I think weren't baked well. I appreciate a twist when an author has laid the groundwork all through the story, but if the twist is thrown in to finish a story, and then explained with awkward ties to the story that are technically possible but nonsensical, then I resent it. Other than that, the story is interesting told from an alien's view, which is uncommon in sci-fi, and the story line is a plausible a [...]

    7. Book three of The Damned, it's more complex, somewhat slower but more ambitious than its two predecessors. A truly preachy paragraph on the next to last page wrecks the ending, but the rest is good enough to keep the pages turning. Recommended. A

    8. I found this book is a very conclusive close to the captivating series that will have you hanging on to the edge of your seats through the whole book. It will make you ask yourself about how humanity acts to others of their species and the world around them.

    9. I enjoyed the characters, and their world and hope I get the chance to read the story again and/or to read more within the series.My Rating System:* couldn't finish, ** wouldn't recommend, *** would recommend, **** would read again, ***** have read again.

    10. An intriguing conclusion where people often pay consequences for racism/assumptions about those of other races. Not everything is tied up in a bow, but it's a nice realistic place to end it.

    11. Good end to a good series. I read them all pretty much back to back, so it was more like one contiguous story than three novels. I'm not sure if that influenced my feelings about it or not.

    12. Foster's patented multi-species cooperation (or not) plot. And there's the stereotypical "humans are inherently savage" trope. Its an interesting philosophical meditation on how to wage war (or not).
