As I type this review, the book is just 99 cents in the Kindle store - grab it now before the price goes up, as it is a dollar well spent!
You're left with a good conclusion, but obviously wanting to know what further develops in the storyline so I just purchased the second book in the series.
I mean, even the title is completely absurd. Total annihilation: love conquers all...?!? I think total annihilation would conquer love every time....
So lets just admit, he's a terrible writer and the book is cheesy. If you like that, buy it and have a great laugh.
So I knew what I was in for when I bought this, but still couldn't finish it. The writing just kept making me dumber.
However, I chose to give this book 1 star because it is obvious there is a campaign afoot with this book to squash honest reviews and elevate it with false reviews.
In other words, instead of the author taking objective criticism and learning to be a better writer, he is bent (instead) of squashing anyone who would hurt the sales of his terrible book by recruiting others (family? Friends?) to game the reviews and post ridiculous 5 star reviews.
True authors love their craft, not their sales. Money comes from a well crafted novel, not from manipulation of reviews.
So now you know. Lets see how many people try to squash this review. Happy reading.
I found this and the books that followed one the most incredible series I've read in decades.
When I stumbled across your first book last fall I had nearly given up finding a good book series to read. Everyone had such bleak futures, or stunted ones, where they took the technology only so far, ignoring it when it wasn't needed to solve a plot point.
Here I found big ideas, a scale that goes from planetary to eventually universes, and I do mean that in the plural, along with a wonderful message of brighter futures that the majority of science fiction lack.
It is true a story needs conflict and that's provided, but its not an anchor weighing the setting down. A problem arises and there are some pretty big and seemingly hopeless ones that come up, however once overcome (and not necessarily without struggle) its not default back to where they were in the beginning, the author takes it up another notch. The quality of life in the universe improves.
By the end of this series whole universes are journeyed to. Planet destroying weapons are flung about nearly as standard arms, teleportation is from one galaxy to another is common place, yet in all of that, the message that each life is valued comes through strongly.
Granted, when something wrong needs to be taken care of, it is. Evil, or 'just' the bad guys aren't just given a slap on the wrist and told behave. When 'grump', as the heroes say, needs kicking, its kicked and hard.Read more ›
I should have believed the many 1-star reviews. They cover the book pretty well, so there is no real reason for me to cover territory well covered by others.
I guess this qualifies as the preface, although it is not labeled that way.
"Alliance of Worlds has decided that humans are to be annihilated as an example to anyone that discovers ancient alien technology, even though there is no proof against them. They think fifty thousand warships can do the job. Unfortunately, the humans are not cooperating with their plan, and one young human who has fallen in love will change everything."
I did not read a whole lot of it before deciding it was not worth my time. I do not understand the many 5 star reviews. Normally I would attribute bad books getting a few 5 star reviews to friends, relatives, and sock puppets, but the sheer number of good reviews this one has just baffles me.
