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.

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.

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?

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...

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.

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.

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.

I have to say this installment left me rather peeved - not good because I really liked Origins and thought this was shaping up to be a good series. Having now completed the first trilogy of this series I do feel that there are some inconsistancies in the plot that make Triton and the previous installments in need of some revision. For example, I don't know what the author's point was in allowing Alice to retrieve Jonas in the previous book and then having him die in Triton. Further, it made no logical sense that Vindyne or Regent Galactic would put an explosive device within Jonas' body when they had tried so hard to extort information out of him. It just felt like Jonas and Ayan had become redundant to the story arc and so the best solution seemed to be to kill them off. I do feel the author has moved away from the original concept of the story arc which was about Jonas, Ayan, the First Light Crew and Free-ground - there was no real resolution, no addressing what happened after the crew were forced to leave and thus leaving poor Jonas in the clutches of Vindyne. I believe the author missed an opportunity to add more to the Jonas/Ayan and First Light story arc - just felt unfinished. the only other sour note is that all the books in the series I have read so far have had terrible formatting/spelling errors and editing.
However, in spite of what I felt was a less successful story, Triton did deliver some great Lalonde style - good character development, sense of humour and a developing and interesting universe filled with wonderous scientific tech. This is, I believe, inspite of inconsistancies, is still a good read.
