A world recovering from a devastating plague…
A brutal enemy threatening invasion…
A young man seeking to escape the shadow of his father…
A ship manned by a crew of fresh academy graduates…
A top-secret experimental propulsion system…
A questionable alliance with a mysterious green-eyed woman…

What destiny has in store for the crew of the UES Aurora, is far greater than any of them could ever imagine. And this is only the beginning.

A ship stranded halfway across the galaxy…
A difficult and lengthy journey home…
A homeworld in urgent need of their return…
And now they are running out of food…

A captain coming into his own…
A handful of refugees stranded on board…
A possible traitor in their midst…

5.0 out of 5 stars A thoroughly enjoyable read! February 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There is plenty of action with interesting villains and an extraordinarily lucky main character. Although the success enjoyed by the main character is unlikely, it is easy to sink into the action and just enjoy the flow. There are very few logic errors which make this a rarity in the self published genre. I would recommend this book to anyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Sci-Fi Series May 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I liked the first book so much I ended up buying all the others as well. As often seen in unsung authors struggling to break into the mainstream, there were plenty of typos and grammatical errors, but not enough to keep me from enjoying the stories thoroughly. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series and will look for more from Ryk Brown.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, but. January 30, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It was, overall, an entertaining book. If you take it as such, then it's good and there's no problem with that.

But... this is more of a space-opera/Fantasy book than a science fiction book in the sense that, known laws of physics like light speed, relativity, mass/energy etc are pretty much completely ignored. For example, in space, technically, sub-light top speed is not dependent on thrust, acceleration is. There it makes no sense when they look at a ship spec to say "it can only make 10% light at most"... no... just no. It also completely ignores time dilation at 50% light and a number of other laws of physics as we know them.

Further more, coincidences are much too common in this book, coincidences of absolutely astronomical proportions in fact. Jump millions of kilometers away in an infinite amount of empty space....coincidentally right next to two small ships.. wow... jump again, by mistake 1000 light years away smack dab in between ships in the middle of a battle... ONE THOUSAND LIGHT YEARS AWAY...hold on just a minute there...we just went from the mathematically almost impossible to "hand of God"/Fantasy level. And then Na-tan legend... we've left this universe and gone into full fantasy mode now...

I also read in other reviews that the Navy just doesn't work that way, that doesn't bother me at all... whatever...

The characters are relatively well done, the action is pretty well written and flows along, but the dialogs can become a bit stiff and bland. In fact I think the dialogs are what the author needs to work on most. The navy stuff and real "science" are easily fixed with a bit of research... but the dialogs.. that's hard.

So all in all, not a bad read for me and I will be reading the rest of the series hoping the author improves as it goes along. But not a classic, not a "real" Navy or military book, and more a Fantasy book than Science Fiction.

That's why... a 3.

This is the best sci-fi series of this genre I have ever read. Besides being a good read there are no grammatical or syntax errors that have stopped my reading in mid sentence that I have sometimes encountered with these ebooks.

Great SiFi space opera with strong characters and interesting story lines....without the in-depth and often times boring hard science fiction. If you liked/loved B.V. Larson's "Star Force" series then this saga is right up you alley. I'm on Episode 5 and going strong. Someone wrote "Star Trek on Steroids", I would say spot on target!!

I rate this book 4.25 on a scale of 1-5.

Just to help put this book, and other similar types, into perspective here is a list of some of my favorite SiFi books (I tend to like action/adventure/drama with great characters and creative story lines):

Dune (my personal all time favorite space opera) - Frank Herbert (5.0)
Hyperion (the Book of Cantos series is awesome and ends with a bang) - Dan Simons (4.5)
Heroes Die - Matthew Stover (more Fantasy than SiFi but an awesome edge of your seat read) (4.5)
Star Force Series (all 10 books are fun reads) - B.V. Larson (4.25 on average)
Old Mans War - John Scalizi (4.25)
Forever War - Joe Haldeman (4.25)
Forging Zero (a brutal and nerve racking read, but fun) - Sara King (4.25)
Enders Game (fun story, but IMO not as good as many rate it) - Orson Scott Card (4.0 - 4.25)

Thanks for reading :)

2.0 out of 5 stars Summary of these 3 books in a nutshell.... Meh April 12, 2013
By Jeff S
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
You can summarize these 3 books (and the 3 following for that matter) in very simple way. Impossibly lucky captain somehow survives every impossible encounter, followed by repairing the ship just enough to survive the next impossible encounter. Repeat 6 times and you've got the entire published saga in a nutshell. Just not believable, even for military scifi standards.

This book reads like one of the classic science fiction "literary herd" books where there is no real technologically new concept proposed, no new philosophical perspective advanced, and no interesting character interactions or developments present. The characters are one and two dimensional. the plot was boring. The story doesn't move.

I hate to slam anyone's creative effort; seriously. Maybe it's just that I don't get it.

But I've spent my life reading the genera and putting up with shoddy craftsmanship; bad development, bad grammar, undeveloped ideas, unreadable characters and otherwise painful writing. I've done it because if you can forgive all these transgressions, this genera will show you new ideas, new philosophies, new ways to look at the world and the future.

I'm sorry but in this book, I can't find a single redeemable quality.
