Book Description

The Stars Realm has 832 new members and they are ready to go to the Galaxy of the plant creatures and attempt to stop their destrucdtion of entire planets. It is not going to be easy having to face fleets of more than a million warships with some of the largest being longer than twenty miles. This confrontation is going to be monumental. However, to wait will be fatal. The Plants will grow too large to handle and it's only a matter of time until they complete the harvesting of their galaxy and expand into others.

The King and Queen have also given birth to a child and its psychic abilities are going to play a large role if the Realm is to survive. It may be that the enemy is too large to stop. With space and land battles of epic proportions, the action will keep you turning pages.

The author has a nice continuation of this series, complete with some good space battle scenes. Some of this is a little unrealistic for me to fathom, however, such as the sheer number of space ships that are able to be built over a short period of years.

Consistent with my observations of Book Two in the series, there continues to be a very annoying number of spelling, punctuation, verb tense, and other errors in the Kindle version - while there is a prominent mention of an alleged editor on the Amazon web page, it sounds like the editor needs to offer a refund for their services or do the job again. These errors make you lose your concentration and take away a star in my review. I would suggest taking a fresh look at this and correct these mistakes - most of them are glaring - and get a corrected copy out to the public.

4.0 out of 5 stars MORE, PLEASE!! May 11, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
If you have not read this trilogy, go buy all three right now! You will not be disappointed. I hope this series will continue. It has a good plot, well-filled out characters, and some very nice surprises. It has all everyone could want and will please a wide range of readers. I gave it a four star because it did leave some characters behind without telling what happened to them, two of them I felt were important. I don't want to give anything away, and this is my only complaint besides a few nit-picky ones. However, having said that, I think they are well worth the money, and this author is going far.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's an enigma to me March 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm not quite understanding WHY I like this series, but I do. The plots are totally unrealistic, each battle is essentially the same as the previous battle, only with different races, and that whole popcorn thing really gets annoying. Yet I still read the first three books! I guess because it's true fantasy. Unfortunately, the world will never work the way the author has presented it, but it's nice to dream. If you're looking for something totally mindless to read, this is your book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good light reading. November 19, 2012
By Mikkel
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like this book, as well as the others in the series. OK - so the characters are too perfect to be real as some reviewers have said. The books are engrossing enough that I keep buying them. This book in particular was one that kept me up late finishing it. It let me get away from the real world for a while. That is what I bought it for, so I definitely got my money's worth!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good read in tradition of space opera October 6, 2012
By mike
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is really a good read and is in keeping with the best traditions of space opera. Authors like EE doc Smith, and edgar rice burrows would be proud.
The characters, storyline and universe that Saxon has created is well developed and the continuity from one book to another is well maintained.

Even the science is similar to those in the skylark series and the lensman series.
Keep em comming, i enjoy these kinds of stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Rose by any other name! September 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The whole series is good, if you can get your head around the fact that the basic plot is being repeated in every book.
It just gets greater and grander as you proceed through the series. I guess the authors premise is "if it works why fix
it!" I've read all of the books in the series now except for the last one. I know exactly how it's going to run but I
will still download the ebook and read it because each story sucks you in until you are totally absorbed. There are a
quite a few inane and irritating things in all his books relating to inadequate proof reading. Most of them seem to be
from using Microsoft Word (or similar) "find and replace" feature and assuming that the resulting edit is perfect.

I would even go so far as to say Saxon Andrews is like a poor man's alternative to David Weber. He probably wont like
the comparison but until Saxon gets his act together on the proof reading and he diversifies his plots a little more the
comparison stands. To offset that comment a little. Where David Weber uses a lot of "filler" in his novels to expand them
out with sub-plots, Saxon Andrews gets straight to the core of the plot like an arrow going from the bow to it's target.
The result is a fast paced and usually exciting journey which leaves you quickly reaching for Amazon's download link for more.

A real great read ! Just wished there was going to be more in this series ! Escapism at its finest. Yes there were some spelling and grammar issues but those are easy to look past.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Great Read for First Graders! December 3, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This author writes really bad dialogue. If his intent was to write at the elementary school level, then he accomplished that goal. I think the story line has some merit but the writing is down right horrible! It's very childish and simple.

The author is also obsessed with numbers. It seems as though you have to have an accounting degree to read his novels. Or if you are good at taking inventories, then this kind of writing will really appeal to you.

Read something else if you don't feel like wasting your time!

More About the Author

Saxon Andrew is one of Amazon's number one international bestselling science fiction independent authors. A list of his series includes the Annihilation Series, Ashes of the Realm, Fight for Creation, Lens of Time, Star Chase, Jesse's Starship, Trapped in Time and the Nemesis series. He is a lifelong reader of science fiction and the love he developed as a young boy for the works of the great masters such as E.E. 'Doc' Smith, Isaac Asimov and Frank Herbert have shaped his view of the world and the cosmos.

A former high school coach and classroom teacher who enjoyed the challenges of working with students also enjoyed a corporate sales/training career before he moved on to establishing a family owned service business in Tampa, Florida.

Soon after retirement and at the encouragement of his wife, who admired his over active imagination and storytelling abilities, he sat down in 2009 to see if he could write a science fiction story. The first book he wrote was "Annihilation - Love Conquers All"; before he knew it three books had made their way on to his laptop. The response from some trusted friends was overwhelming! The first three books were published in April of 2011 and he's discovered a few things since then.....

"I soon found out that there were thousands who enjoyed my books and bought all three of the first trilogy, making all three best sellers on Amazon. I also received reviews that pointed out I have a lot to learn about writing style, grammar, sentence structure and many other things. I am a work in progress and totally see the validity of those criticisms; however my intent is to entertain and produce a story that keeps the reader turning pages. I write like I speak and recognize that I have some work ahead to become a more accomplished writer and intend on continuing to grow in my skills. I have also discovered my passion to provide books for those who enjoy my stories and sincerely hope that I never get so caught up in style that I lose the ability to produce an entertaining piece. Parents don't have to worry about their children because I keep it clean and strive to pen a story anyone can read and enjoy. I want science fiction fans, like myself, to stay up all night trying to finish one of my stories!

There, you're warned. Now hold on to your seats and enjoy the SciFi series I've created. Have I got some stories for you..."

Saxon still lives in Tampa and when he's not creating a new story or keeping in touch with his fans and fellow indie authors; he's golfing, traveling or enjoying the beaches of Florida.
