Essentially the world is becoming uninhabitable due to interplanetary war, drought, famine, etc. The book is not really about the wars but some details are addressed to support the story. It is about a small group of people/beings that have been manipulating societies for hundreds of years to make the planet uninhabitable.
These folks have partnered with an interplanetary race (Q'Roths) who want to use the human life-force for their next generation. The plan is to have pioneer humans leave Earth to go to Eden, where the Q'Roth eggs are waiting. The "babies" will feed on the human pioneers and zip back to Earth to finish feeding. A hatched Q'Roth with consume ~100 humans life force as part of its development.
While this is a series, there is a nice closure to end this part of the story - no "Who shot JR?" cliffhanger!
This is the part of the review where I point out where the author went wrong, what needs improvement, make some comments that at least I think are funny . . . I have nothing to put here. There is nothing wrong with this book.
If you like science fiction, buy this book now.
There are some great new concepts on offer with space travel and terraforming and the action sequences - of which there are many - are brilliantly described and executed.
Our author has one character flaw if I may. He does not know how to dispose of his characters. He keeps resurrecting them. Still it adds interest and I will immediately start on book 2.
