Top review from India
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
- the characters are caricatures and for supposedly senior military officers, act like teenagers - worse than teenagers.
- pretty much every cliche that the author can think of is introduced, regardless of whether it is relevant or not
- the writing style can be charitably described as... simplistic.
This would be a great book for 12-13 year olds. For adults, not so much.
I soldiered through the first book, skimming pages at a time. I lasted about a quarter of the way through the second book before giving up.

At first I was happy enough with it, even though Quintos was slightly annoying. Then things started to go all star trek/captain kirk. Some of the aliens had too human characteristics and ship battles were unbelievable. Worse still... year 2170 and humans can't even prevent their computers from being remote hacked by aliens on a daily basis. Not just the main computer either, magically all the robots on the ship can be taken control over remotely. Lets not even get on to the american revolutionary war aspect, something that would have been 400 years in the past for the characters. Then, when things couldn't get any more ridiculous, lets bring in a scientist from the past and transporter technology. Best be sure to keep that tech safe, and keep the research data on a computer system that might as well have an open port without firewall and root/root for the login credentials.
Overall a disappointing read.
There were times - as per the previous books mentioned - where you just think a 10 year old would write a better story
Whilst it follows a storyline, it’s predictable but at the same time you think why would they do / say / carry that out! It’s really hard to put into words, but it just doesn’t work for adults. Kids & teenagers would love this though!
The characters & storyline has lots of cliches from other sci-fi. You can also tell the author has no real military background for some of the stuff the characters would say or do.
Wont be finishing this series & in future will make more effort to avoid the author. Better than the junkyard series but instead of absolute crap, it’s just crap.
From a HUGE ship that reminds me a little of the one from Spinward Fringe, a flawed Captain reminiscent of Kirk, and a *redacted* who ends up with a *redacted* in his body that made me really laugh out lout numerous times. A thoroughly enjoyable read.
Really looking forward to the next title in this series. Tomorrow maybe? Today?
*Note: Redacted to avoid spoiling the plot... but you will realise what I mean when you read the book.
