Galacticide is the third book in Bert-Oliver Boehmer's epic sci-fi/space opera series. After playing a significant role in defeating the Dark Ones, Kel Chaada finds himself on trial for the alleged murder of an old lover. His daughter, Linuka Omga, prepares to be the new Shaajis of the Aloo Dash, only to be overthrown by a violent coup concocted by her enemies. Meanwhile, one of the Dark Ones, the Brood Mother, is still alive and seeking vengeance, eventually finding a way to resurrect the "Greatest" and creating a weapon that can break causality. With reality crumbling in pockets of the multiverse, Kel and Linuka remain the only ones capable of fighting back with their multi-awareness abilities. But to do so, Kel will have to make the ultimate sacrifice.

Galacticide is one of the most complex and well-thought-out sci-fi novels I've read this year. Captivating from beginning to end, Bert-Oliver Boehmer's sprawling space opera trilogy comes to a satisfying conclusion with a thrilling end that haunts your mind long after you've closed the book. Boehmer deftly maneuvers an intricate plot with a large cast of characters and layers it with a healthy dose of political intrigue, mystery, action, and futuristic scientific theories that push the boundaries of your imagination. Among the characters, I really enjoyed the friendship between Kel and Raar and Kel's complicated relationship dynamic with Linuka. If all-powerful, terrifying alien villains are your jam, you will love the Dark Ones. In conclusion, this is a must-read series for space opera and sci-fi readers, and I can't recommend it highly enough.
