I bought and read both this book and it's prequel (The Unearthing) within the last ten days and can't wait for book number three. Steve, please don't go all George R.R. Martin on us and make us wait forever, I'm 65 and want to finish reading your series.
I said in my review of The Unearthing that I thought it a little slow in some parts. That was not the case with this book; I didn't want to put it down 'til done.
The story kept on building right to the end without a dull moment, but I don't want to leave it there; bring on the sequels.
I love books with alien life forms (Moties etc.) and this book has several, but I hope to see many more in the sequels and perhaps flesh-out the ETs that that have already been introduced.

I read the first and second books of this series back to back and would have continued on if there were more published. Both books grab you and make it extremely hard to put them down. I actually liked the second book more than the first as it went in such a fascinating new direction that I did not anticipate and now can't wait to see what happens next. I thought both books in the series so far were well written and an excellent value for their price so I highly recommend them.

Along with The Unearthing, Through Darkness and Stars is a ripping good yarn with very interesting social and religious themes. However again the story is let down in several places by poor narrative, numerous grammatical errors and "black holes" in the plot one could fly a star ship through. There are several unresolved issues at the end of The Unearthing that I hoped would be resolved in the follow-up. Unfortunately this was not to be. There is even an anomaly or two including the sudden reappearance of two characters who were apparently killed in the first volume. I sincerely hope that there is a concluding sequel to this story that completes the saga. I hope even more that the author and publisher employ a competent proof reader! And oh yes - "f-bombs". While I believe some are acceptable when in context, they are a little profuse here.

Right up front, I'm not the greatest book reviewer.

When it comes to books, my needs are rather simplistic. I don't base a books worth by comparing it to other books written by someone else and a typo or two here and there doesn't send me into indignant convulsions. It comes down to whether I enjoyed the story or not.

Steve Karmazenuk's first book, "The Unearthing", had some major twists in it that I have never seen in a book before. Just when you begin to think you can predict what will happen next, you get blown out of the water. "Through Darkness and Stars" was just as good and I thoroughly enjoyed it. In fact, I'm a bit sad that that the 3rd book isn't available yet. I'm hooked.

I just finished both books in the series and although it was a slow read for me, I don't agree with many of the negative things some were saying (especially in the first book, The Unearthing).

I understand what he was doing, but he does tend to give too much detail sometimes, and then scoots along quickly where you need the detail. However the full scope of his vision doesn't become clear until you get into the second book. I did find myself somewhat frustrated with characters I grew to care about that somehow just seemed to disappear. But then became fascinated with the direction the story was taking, which encompasses impossibly broad timelines. But the universe is billions of years old, so why wouldn't the timeline match that?

Another good thing is that I couldn't tell where the story was going, which drives me crazy with other authors. Usually if I can predict the storyline I get bored too easy. I didn't get bored, just flipped through some of the descriptions.

I think the story also accurately depicts the sexual and drug behavior of single city people from 20 - 30. When a crisis of faith and hope occurs, some people turn to these things for comfort (self medicating). I'm in my 60's and I can remember behaving in nearly the same way when I was a hippie. Fortunately, many will recover.

These two books impressed me with their forward thinking, but he needs to work on editing. Authors tend to think every word is a pearl, and they resist cutting. But cut you must to gain the audience. Question is, what audience is he writing to?

The way this book ended (no I'm not telling), I can only assume another is on the way. At least I hope so, I'm looking for it.

I actually read the entire story after reading the Unearthing, wanting to know where the Ship and its human crew would end up. The baseline story wandered all over the place, and the execution was not good. The story turned from an attempt to find a lost civilization to an epic struggle between 2 evil parties for control of the universe to a messiah story based on an alien version of the bible. Along the way, the author filled pages with facts and personal thoughts wholly unrelated to the main stories and time and time again engaged in the use of the F word, where it became less and less effective. I recommend against reading this book and avoiding the series.
