    To be honest I m a little bit disappointed by Ingenious Not the plot, I m ok with the Spinners, their motivations, their interactions and the ending is satisfactory, but the way it s handled.Holes and dull would sum it up.Holes because being from the POV of the Spinners the relations with humans are kept to a bare minimum without context The main case is Claire, popping out of nowhere but treated as someone developped enough for us to understand her motivations Which is not the case.Because the interactions with characters from the previous books notably Xinmei and Adrielna go absolutely nowhere and their inclusion seems worthless Dull because being what they are the Spinners are boring as hell Their repetitive and endless self monologues never ceased quick enough to me Another boring point was the repetition of the battles between Spinners and Terrans I think I got the point after the third one but were to come Sigh.3 nonetheless because the plot of the whole series is good and entertaining with a first book better handled than the others The effort of Mccloskey is appreciated and deserves some recognition.

    This book was from the point of view of the Spinners All of their thought processes were well thought out and it was really interesting to read The ending was unexpected and I felt that it really completed the series I would recommend this book to anyone who liked the first one, even if they didn t like the second one as much.

    I enjoyed this book than the second in the series The action once again was the same as in the first book, but this time the main focus are the aliens The ending I particularly enjoyed as I had not seen it coming at all A very good ending to the series.

    Bottom line I enjoyed this book, and it was a satisfying conclusion to the Synchronicity Trilogy.Essentially, the three short novels that make up the Synchronicity Trilogy tell the exact same tale, but from different points of view a sort of SF twist on Rashomon In review Part One Insiduous was from the POV of the UNSF United Nations Space Force It was enjoyable but felt incomplete obviously, it s part one, after all Part Two Industrious was from the POV of the Chinese Divine Space Force An interesting twist, seeing familiar events from an alternate POV, and I appreciated how fully and honestly the Chinese protagonists were portrayed This isn t treated as a book from the antagonists POV, but rather a book from a POV that is simply different So, back to this one Ingenious is Part Three, and it takes up the tale from the POV of the mysterious alien Spinners We see how they got to be in Terran space, what their motivations are, what their internal conflicts are, and again within the context of their own, authentic POV The alienness of humans was fun to see from their perspective.The writing is solid Not flowery, but functional and that s the appropriate style It worked.The characters, alien though they were, did engage me I cared about them, even if I didn t exactly relish the concept of them being victorious.The tech sci fi aspect really well done Loved the realistic feel of the space combat, robotics and AI Top notch.The plot and narrative This is trickier The plot was good Each individual book, and the three together, tell the same tale from an increasingly complex threading of different points of view As a narrative, I m not sure that all the threads were woven together in the most efficient and engaging way possible Could this have been one story with a continuous narrative told from multiple POVs instead of three books that retread the same territory from the different POVs I think so Would it have been better Unconvinced of that, but equally unconvinced of how it was presented It became a little frustrating by the third novel to see the same things happening, even with new information and character perspectives to shade it in different color But that mostly technical gripe prevent me from enjoying the series Not too much, no.If it s available in an Omnibus Edition and I think it is grab it that way It may have a few rough edges, but I definitely recommend it overall.

    This final segment is definitely the best of the trilogy The author chooses the perspective of the invading alien cyborgs, creating a complete backstory and giving these new creatures motivations and angst The first half of the book retells the events from the first two books from the new perspective, and the second half resolves the entire story.I mentioned in the previous books that the writing style was a bit flat and unimaginative In this story, the cyborg voices are actually well differentiated The author understands computers better than people All in all, this has been an intriguing trilogy.
