About the Author
I was born in western Sydney, Australia, in 1965 to my Australian mother and English father. When I was ten years old the family moved to Rotherham, England. We lived there for almost two years, and then returned to Australia. This time we moved to Burnie, Tasmania. At fifteen we all moved again, this time to Sydney. I got married to a wonderful woman, and we had two great children. But in 2001 I was feeling as though something was missing. I divorced, and left the placed I called home. I then moved to Michigan, USA, where a little over a year later I re-married. Over the years I had written many short stories and snippets, but during all this time I was unable to tap into that special place needed to write a full size novel. That all changed in 2010 when I decided to revive an old dream and re-start writing, thus the Terran Chronicles saga was born. The website www.terranchronicles.com has a more detailed biography. I hope you enjoy my work, as much as I do writing it. Take it easy James

It's always nice to find something new, to branch out a bit. Glad I took the leap, and found this whole new world of reading.
One of the things I want from the authors whos book I purchase is consistancy. I was all enjoying the series until their first starship takes off unexpectantly in an act of sabatage. the people and the engineers onboard the ship all wax poetic about their not being enough power to get into orbit, about their not being enough propulsion devices to get them into orbit even if they had the power.
Yet they get into orbit, land on several planets, get back into orbit again, and go to warp to another star system.
I like a little technobabble and I'll even give the author points for coming up with the magic space drive, but I can't really suport an author who says something is impossible and then does it anyway without any expanation at all just to keep the story going even when the characters themselves don't know why.
It bothered me thoughout the book that the characters kep mentioning that they didn't have enough power, and yet they kept going and doing all these things anyway. When did they stop for fuel? Did they get any fuel at all? I mean, you don't say your car is low on fuel and then go a thousand miles to your next destination without even stopping for gas or at least mentioning doing something about it.
