Book Description

Captain Valance has taken the Triton to the Enreega System. The Samson crew man the massive Sol Defence vessel with the help of deserters and are soon joined by recently displaced refugees. Though they may have taken possession of the mighty ship, the battle to keep and tame her is only beginning. She's filled with surprises and secrets.

While the Samson crew and their new allies fight for control over their new ship, the Fourth Fall Of Mankind is beginning. Billions of lives will irrevocably change and those who managed to find a reprieve will have to choose a side in a war few are given the opportunity to comprehend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent SciFi Series January 10, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a pretty good science fiction series - make sure you read the Spinward Fringe Omnibus first, as it is the true beginning of the series (not Broadcasts 1 and 2). If you like science fiction and good character development, then this series is for you and well worth the low Kindle price: you won't be disappointed. I was unable to put the series down. Out of all of the books in this series (so far), I enjoyed this one the most.

I do believe this Kindle version could use a good edit / formatting / spelling check, as there are times the context is incorrect, and nothing can distract me more than a misspelled word.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love this series September 6, 2011
By jim
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a great series for anyone who likes character driven SCI Fi. Download the free origins chapters and you'll be hooked. The subsequent installments are so reasonably priced it's ridiculous. My only problem with these stories is that they're over to quikly. But that's because you can't put them down. Someone said this should be a television series. I agree most heartily. It'd be awesome. Where do I sign the petition?

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Sci-fi June 17, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed Triton. I know for some it was a bit slower paced, but the extra depth involved fleshing out the universe was worth it in my opinion. Start with the free copy of Origins, and if you like it, the rest of these books are well worth the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book - lousy editing May 11, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the 4th installment of Randy Lalonde's serial SF series (yes I know it says Broadcast 3 - the series begins with 0), and stands out for its interesting mix of the mundane (taking control of the mostly-automated Triton, dealing with lots of housekeeping issues and personal conflicts) and the fantastic (new tech, the reconnection of the current story arc with that of the original Broadcast Zero crew). Lalonde has a great feel for writing believable characters, and a soap opera scriptwriter's gift for plot twists (and I mean that in a good way); this series is a page turner that keeps you on your toes throughout. The only thing keeping it from a 5 star rating is the editing - please, get a competent editor to stomp out the plethora of grammatical boo-boos, Mr. Lalonde! I'll even offer my services if you are looking, as I could easily do a better job than whoever is handling the chore now. It distracts from the lovely work you have done on this series. The price is right (most installments are $2.99) and while the installments aren't long, there are plenty of them, and currently the whole series will run you less than $20, making it a worthwhile investment. If Joss Whedon had chosen to go hard SF instead of space Western with his Firefly universe, he might have produced something like Spinward Fringe, and that is high praise indeed. Read this - you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Developing Author... June 26, 2014
By Daminus
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This author started out really bad... the only reason i even gave it a chance was because the first book was free and somehow despite the terrible grammar and horrible technology system in the story... the author manages to make a great cast of characters that convinced me to pay for these... now as each book goes he figured out how to spell check... and now he is fixing holes in his plot and getting better at how the technology works... these books are definitely worth reading once you get to book 4+ and books 6 and 7 were some of the best Sci-fi books ive read... If you have read anything like star carrier, forever war, or odyssey one, then you should read these books. A fair warning that the first 2-3 books are not great and book "0" i would maybe give 2 stars... for everything but the main character... but stick with it because the last few books make all the pain worth it... pretty much everything prior to book 3 was just the chores you had to do to get the good stuff which is 4 and up...

4.0 out of 5 stars I nearly didn't buy this book .... May 28, 2012
By Mazza
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I nearly didn't buy this book because some of the reviews put me off. I'm so glad I did, I've enjoyed it as much as the first two books, and I've now downloaded the entire series. Normally, I don't read a series - the one exception being Azimov's Foundation series. Now I've added this series to my library, and am expecting to get as much pleasure out of reading it again as I have the first time. Ok, there are some very minor editing problems, and yes, the "resurrections" come a bit frequently. Nothing that spoils my enjoyment of the books. Well written, great characters, and some fine adventures. If the "science" seems a bit magical, well, what would a 16th Century sailing ship's captain think of radar, sonar, and nuclear submarines - or even an electric light switch come to think of it. This is imaginative story telling at its best, and I am looking forward to some very entertaining reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another good read October 27, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this story. Although it seems like it might have been a transition from the action of the first books to, hopefully, more action in upcoming stories, it was done quite well. Quite a few surprises and re-apperiances I did not see comming but well done. I enjoyed it very much. Can't wait to start the next book.

By DonnyJr
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This series is amazing. Even though it was quickly written. It will keep you reading constantly and have you very sad when you finish and must put it down. I loved this whole series and hope to find more by this author.
