The survivors of the battles with the Regent super computer that was built by the First Imperium are tying to build a new life on Earth 2. They struggle with only a small group of people and one of the most important issues is to build a larger population that is sustainable. They have to prepare defenses and make new space craft and develop new technologies and weapons. Thirty years later they are split into 4 groups and strife is showing. They have the original survivors, the new born generation, the clones called tanks and the enhanced hybrids that are called mules. As the politics and problems fester among the population of Earth 2 they face an even more threatening and dangerous problem that is unknown to them. A second supercomputer exists and it has been activated after the destruction of the Regent. It has the technology and the resources of the First Imperium at its disposal and it has only one mission. To enact total vengeance and destruction against the creatures that destroyed the original Regent super computer and it has the power to accomplish that goalThis is a great premise for the next book in the series and I have read all of the books of this series so far. This book introduces a new cast of characters and as a result a lot of new character development has to take place. In addition a lot of time in the first part of the book is spent on the politics between the 4 different classes of people that live on Earth 2. This is a good story line and it is developed well but my interest are not in politics but in more classic Sci-Fi and the continuation of the storyline of this saga that I have been reading for a long time. Parts of this book for me are 5 star quality while other parts drag into long discussions regarding the politics and political battles of the inhabitants of Earth 2. The story line and action builds as the book progresses and that held my interest. I am such a fan of Jay Allan and his past books that I believe that this entire series will be well written but for me this first book was a 4 star overall. The excessive politics and internal struggles just detracted from the real enemy and the problems facing the people of Earth 2. I look forward to the next book of the series. Check it out!

Winds of Vengeance (Crimson Worlds Refugees) (Volume 4) Paperback – August 28, 2016 by Jay Allan (Author) Review
Having thoroughly enjoyed all the Crimson worlds series, I jumped into this one of the Crimson Worlds Refugees with relish and it certainly did not disappoint. Very enjoyable read with some great new characters, a new menace to be confronted, continued fine military space battles, well described human grit and courage and a fine opening to the next trilogy. Highly recommended! -Read Reviews-
A very well done follow-up to Book 3 kicking off a new trilogy with "Vengeance" the AI picking up where the Regent left off. Intrigue abounds and moral questions have to be answered when it comes to the Mules, Tanks and NBs(Natural Born Humans). A small society gears up for war while fighting internal struggles to survive. I look forward to the role of Compton II, the son of our famous Admiral. It is clear to me that the population must increase quickly . . and the only way that can be done is via the tanks and mules. Earth 2 must carefully monitor their use of AIs . .. and avoid the traps of the Ancients. Some editing issues but not enough to distract from the story. Spelling mostly but not a lot of it. Look forward to Book 5.
