Towards the end of the first book you got a little bit long winded. For example I could start reading about a battle starting in the first paragraph skip to the first sentence in the next paragraph then the next and the next and still not have the battle starting. Sorry, my comment was a bit long too.
I got to the point where I just read a sentence or two per page and followed right along.
Last I started the second book in the series (because I bought both books at the same time), but I just can not finish it. Book two reads the same way. Sorry John.
Each book centers around 1 event. From start to finish it's 1 enemy/location/conflict and that's all. Which would be cool if it was a little more concise or better written. The space battles are rather boring even though it's made to seem like a lot is going on. There's never really any tension on the survival of characters you're reading from. The humans are GUARANTEED to come out victorious no matter the odds.
Characters have no depth. They don't grow. You don't even really care about them. Honestly, it'd be better if there was just a narrator instead of hearing the characters thoughts.
There are multiple intelligent species in the book that cover (as far as I understand) the Milky Way Galaxy. But they're all humanoid. The author makes a VERY brief reference to an ancient race seeding life to maybe explain away why they're all similar but it just felt lazy.
If you have Unlimited and are a fast reader not looking for depth, give it a go. Don't expect anything decent though.
I'm afraid I cannot recommend this book, though I really tried to give Mr. Walker the benefit of the doubt and bought book 2 in the series... same thing, unfortunately. It just lacks the power to really grip you. Everything seems skimmed over with no attention to detail. A real gripe is the way the characters address each other so casually and completely ignore military protocols. Grrrrr!
This is pretty much kid stuff. If great military space opera is your thing, then this is mac & cheese compared to the porterhouse steak of Eric Thomson or Daniel Arenson.
Looking forward to Book 3 and the prequel!

This book desperately needs a prequel. Starting the next right now...... as in today
This is the first in the series and I can't wait to get on to the next book.Read more
