This is a very good sci fi tale that starts off a little slow, but picks up steam fast and not a minute of action stops from about the 45% mark to the end. This is one of those sci fi tales I had a hard time putting down, and I enjoyed it. The author does a good job with the technology and dialogue, although he lost me a few times with some of the alien race names. I found myself dreaming about some of the technology and wishing I had it right here, right now.

As I type this review, the book is just 99 cents in the Kindle store - grab it now before the price goes up, as it is a dollar well spent!

You're left with a good conclusion, but obviously wanting to know what further develops in the storyline so I just purchased the second book in the series.

I like "B" movies. I love cheesy, stupid dialogue. I like the low-budget movies where you can see the strings on the puppet monsters and the wheels underneath them to push them around. I'm a sucker for really dumb movies and books. So when I purchased this book, I knew what I was in for. Come on. Read the prologue. "Totally destroying"...??? Tells you everything you need to know about this author's writing skill.

I mean, even the title is completely absurd. Total annihilation: love conquers all...?!? I think total annihilation would conquer love every time....

So lets just admit, he's a terrible writer and the book is cheesy. If you like that, buy it and have a great laugh.

So I knew what I was in for when I bought this, but still couldn't finish it. The writing just kept making me dumber.

However, I chose to give this book 1 star because it is obvious there is a campaign afoot with this book to squash honest reviews and elevate it with false reviews.

In other words, instead of the author taking objective criticism and learning to be a better writer, he is bent (instead) of squashing anyone who would hurt the sales of his terrible book by recruiting others (family? Friends?) to game the reviews and post ridiculous 5 star reviews.

True authors love their craft, not their sales. Money comes from a well crafted novel, not from manipulation of reviews.

So now you know. Lets see how many people try to squash this review. Happy reading.

At first I thought this author would be recognized enough for such a wonderful series that yet another review wasn't needed. I see a few that are less than stellar and don't give the full import of this book and the series that follow it.

I found this and the books that followed one the most incredible series I've read in decades.

When I stumbled across your first book last fall I had nearly given up finding a good book series to read. Everyone had such bleak futures, or stunted ones, where they took the technology only so far, ignoring it when it wasn't needed to solve a plot point.

Here I found big ideas, a scale that goes from planetary to eventually universes, and I do mean that in the plural, along with a wonderful message of brighter futures that the majority of science fiction lack.

It is true a story needs conflict and that's provided, but its not an anchor weighing the setting down. A problem arises and there are some pretty big and seemingly hopeless ones that come up, however once overcome (and not necessarily without struggle) its not default back to where they were in the beginning, the author takes it up another notch. The quality of life in the universe improves.

By the end of this series whole universes are journeyed to. Planet destroying weapons are flung about nearly as standard arms, teleportation is from one galaxy to another is common place, yet in all of that, the message that each life is valued comes through strongly.

Granted, when something wrong needs to be taken care of, it is. Evil, or 'just' the bad guys aren't just given a slap on the wrist and told behave. When 'grump', as the heroes say, needs kicking, its kicked and hard.

While its possible to suspend belief in some science, like FTL travel etc, it should not be necessary to create absolutely unbelievable science just to fill out a story. The "Coronado" sun panel, the size of a floor mat, capable of generating the energy of 10 sq miles of 'old' arrays is just plain impossible, and adds nothing to the story. Quote from a bit later "They no longer had to be more than 3,600 feet long to contain all the shielding and weapons necessary to protect the crews from the old nuclear reactors" How do weapons protect you from your own nuclear reactor ? This is just bad writing.

The rest of it, as far as I read, is just the same, junk.

This book is just stupid!

**Spoiler**
Here is our "hero", a normal guy, well, with mental powers, chased by the goverment that want to execute him. And when the finally catch him the want to make him leader of the world - just like that....
And on the moon, in a cave (ofc. in a cave...) he tumble over an ancient spaceship - which is in hibernation and he wakes it - fair enough :)
But the ship, just out of nothing, grant him a shield so nothing, i mean nothing, can harm him and a gun that can kill everything and everybody, everytime, everywhere....

The earth is attacked by the mighty evil alliance - suddenly our hero is a strategically mastermind with a lot of military knowledge - only the author know from where, becouse he dont tell us... He have friend that is leading the newborn marines, becouse the human race have been peacefull for several centuries and that friend is fighting a loosing battle, with hes leg broken 4 places etc. etc., but refuses to get treatment, tell the medic to, ohh crap, you know the rest.....

Suddenly our "hero" see they are loosing the battle, and he arrives on the scene, take the full barrage from the 4000 enemy solider and there heavy artillery, but he have hes SHIELD! so no damage, at all, whatsoever. And he fire hes magic gun (which is a part of hes hand, when he think "gun"...) and kill most of the alien army..

For some stupid reason i actually bought book 2 - and i feel ashamed...
In book two the are taking the battle to the enemy (ohh, i forgot, the human fleet also have super-shield, gee, surprise!) and at the first talk, the enemy, which have killed MANY human, suddenly is an trusted ally - i mean, the talk like 5 min, come on!!
