The seventh book in the “I, Human” series, by science-fiction author Vito Veii, proves to be even more complex and exciting than the previous ones. Captain Magnusson, Padre, Vlen, and Astra are starting to understand the darkness at the edge of the galaxy and that they are the only ones who can fight it. Why? Because they have traveled so much, learned so many things, and seen so many worlds. They have managed to make friends on the planets they visited, and now they know there are people they can count on for help and support. Even though it is a pretty long installment, “The Cosmic Corridors” is so fast-paced and action-packed that readers will find themselves unable to put the book down. With each chapter, their favorite characters find out new information about the mysterious darkness, which allows them to make new decisions and come up with a plan.
Chapter Fifty-Two opens with the Captain, Astra, Padre, Tavo, and Vlen around an artificial campfire. They have just arrived from a portal, and they are trying to decide what to do next. Now, the Captain knows he must first find the allegorical man if he wants to get to the nexus, where he will meet a powerful ally. Even though the time watcher gave them some great advice in the previous book, he didn’t explain the Captain everything he would have liked to know. He still has unanswered questions, and there are mysteries and secrets he and his crew still need to uncover.
Astra knows where the allegorical man is, or at least she thinks she does. It seems that she met him when she was on Sapentia and she was strangely attracted to a golden-orange orb. Inside the orb, she met a man who told her she had come there with a purpose, even though she didn’t know what it was. Captain Magnusson asks Astra to contact the allegorical man again, as he seems to hold the key to their strange mission.
Fans of Vito Veii probably know what to expect from “The Cosmic Corridors”: well-developed characters, interesting discussions about philosophy, politics, and the meaning of life, and a compelling plot that will keep them glued to the pages. The author is incredible when it comes to world-building, and his fictional universe grows larger and more fascinating with every new book he publishes. Readers can only hope that Vito Veii will continue working on this brilliant series, because it is obvious he still has much more to say and so many more stories to tell.
