This series was enjoyable enough, but I was glad when it was over. My main problem with it was that after a while I felt I was reading sci-fi from the 1950s, not because of the tech, but because of the characters and story development. When one character obviously dies in a ship explosion, I could barely suppress a yawn, because it was totally obvious that the author would not write the character out. One thing I did appreciate was that certain scenes would just abruptly end and then the story would pick up - uneventfully - a few weeks later; so the author didn't bore us with minutiae. The regularly repeating sex scenes between our two main heroes were mostly wasted reading time.

This is a good story competently told but with shallow character development. The main problem I had was the excessive amount of repetition (this was not noticeable in the first volume, but became a problem in the 2nd and 3d). The author continually recapitulates past events in a variety of ways. This gets more and more annoying until I reached a point where I would just skim entire passages until I was sure I had reached the point where the STORY picked up again. I would say that aboaut 25% of the 2nd and 3d books are composed mostly of recaps. For instance, I read more than a dozen times what the principal weakness of the alien race is. The characters will say it. Then say it again. Then there will be a meeting where this is explained again. And again. And again.

Another boring part - especially in the third book - is the relationship between the two main characters (male and female). They will always say the same things to each other and at one point, I started skimming those passages too.

The problems I mention are not too apparent in the first book which I would rate at 3 stars.

I’ve been reading science fiction all my life. I decided to read this trilogy after an acquaintance recommended it but by the beginning of the third book (this one) it was undeniable that both I and the author just wanted to be done with it.

The first book is noticeable more energetic and interesting, but as the history progresses it slows down to become boring in the last book. The main faults for me are poor character development (the insistent sex scenes of the couple that is the two main characters do not contribute anything to the book other than wasted reading time) and simplistic plot narrative (too-easy-to-read science fiction and too slow or too fast development).
On the other hand, I liked the overall idea the story is based on and the author at least offers some technical justifications for the main technologies shown.

Unfortunately the end is the last nail. It occurs completely unexpected leaving the reader to just imagine it. Looks like the author intended to culminate it in a fourth book but was just too tired to materialize it.

I too would like to see a fourth book in this series. The first three provide an excellent read. I wrote the author about a continuation as I thought Giblralter Stars lacked the finality of Antares Victory (also a great trilogy) Am loking forward to his next work.

I have enjoyed the whole series. They were well written, exciting, lots of drama. It kept me interested for three days reading all three ebooks. I love good sci-fi with a touch of romance. This had it all. I just wish there were a fourth in the series.
I hope everyone else will give this author a chance, he has it going on. Thank you for a wonderful experience Mr. McCollum and please keep writing. :)

I love the storyline of the book trilogy, however, the author seems to equate ham-handedly described sex seems with character development. If the author edited these interludes, and stripped out all of the repeated concepts and phrases the series would be much better and probably fit into two books instead of three.

This is the sixth book I have read from this author in about as many days, so obviously I enjoyed the material! Watching the writers progression from mostly technology driven stories to those with more of a leavening of character and background (maybe even bordering on too much so) was interesting, and reminded me a bit of webers similar progression in the Honor Harrington series.

My one caveat to the authors writing is the tendency of his novels to end by sort of staring soulfully off into the sunset into the distant future........ Towards the real conclusion of the novel!

Those open endings are great for finally curtailing a book that has to stop somewhere, but as all of the previous reviewers have noted, after what amounts to three novel buildup, it all concludes with a sort of wistful cliffhanger that makes you go "W-wait! What the heck happens! How does it end!"

The best I can liken it to is the end of the Empire strikes Back, with Han and Leia staring out at the galaxy while the Millenium Falcon soars away. Imagine if the story ended there.

As I said, it really was a great rid. It's just seems to me that the car ran out of gas with the finish line almost in sight.
