This is the last of the "first generation" of Robotech. Lots of main characters are killed off. The book ends on a grim note. Humans seem to have no hope. The next book begins the "second generation". This one is not the best book in the series.

This review really covers the first 6 books [the Macross subset] of the Robotech series.
I grew up with the anime, rediscovered it in the mid '00s and loved Robotech.
I liked this novelization.

That being said, there are some caveats. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone who didn't already like the Robotech anime because these books are shallow, follow the anime almost scene for scene [and there are lots of things that work on screen that needed some skill to work in a book] and the writing is a hack job.

Perfect for a fan who wants to experience Robotech from a slightly different angle, but I think these books would scare away someone from watching the anime.

Looking forward to the Southern Cross part coming up though :-)
