Pike's Progress is the third book in the Sandy Pike series by John J. Spearman. The story of Sandy and his friends continues in this installment. Sandy is once more Captain Sandy Pike of the Planetary Alliance as it has finally recovered after its surrender to the Hegemony of United Worlds (HUW). While getting control of a few lost planets is good, it is still not the same power the Alliance once enjoyed. With Sandy back on board and a brand-new ship to command, Sandy believes all will be well soon, or so he hopes. As the Alliance plans to become stronger. Sandy, Monty Swift, Alison Lynch, and others try to find a balance between work and danger. But that seems impossible as the threat against Sandy and his peers is constantly active. Can Sandy stay safe and protect everyone at the same time?
I love this space opera, but more than that, I love these characters the most. Stick and Puss, Sandy, Alison, and even Monty Swift are beloved characters who are the life of this story. Each character has a tale to tell, and author John J. Spearman makes sure these characters get the opportunity to do so. The descriptions are so vivid and transporting that I was in the moment with the characters. I love Ali’s storyline. She has to force herself to face her tormentors and make them pay and protect Sandy at the same time. Sandy, on the other hand, has an air of excitement as he loves his new ship and cherishes it like it's his baby. The dialogues are fantastic, the pace is fast, and the plot is action-packed. Once again, Spearman has done an outstanding job with Pike's Progress!
