Following is the review as I originally wrote it.]
Excellent plot, with a refreshingly unique style. With so many cookie cutter writers in the eBook universe now, it's nice to see a new author that doesn't copy his style or technologies en mass from the prevailing popular authors of the military sci-fi genre.
I would recommend this book without reservation, were it not for the annoying and ever-present grammar, punctuation and typographical errors. I realize that I'm only paying $3 for the book, but that doesn't mean that I don't expect a finished product. But as distracting as these things were, the story was an excellent read and kept me hooked until the very end. With the help of an editor, this author will have an awesome career ahead of him.
Into the Black: Odyssey One has all the elements of a good, old fashioned space opera: a heroic captain, a faithful and competent crew, aliens (both good and evil), spaceships, and big honkin' space battles. I thought that the book had a bit of a retro feel, taking me back to a period of time in the 1970s when I spent about a year reading nothing but sci-fi, with a heavy dose of space opera.
My only real criticism of the book is that feels flat. The characters weren't quite fleshed out. I liked them well enough, but didn't fall in love with them. The space battles didn't quite manage to evoke the tension that keeps you turning the pages well after you should have gone to bed. I didn't *feel* the loss of crew members and ground troops. I wasn't deeply dismayed and horrified by the devastation caused by the Drasin.
As you can tell by the fact that I rated this book 4 stars, I did like it. I enjoyed reading it. It is not perfect, but the strengths outweighed the weaknesses for me. The ending of this book leaves things open for a sequel or two (or more). I liked this book well enough to read the next one and well enough to recommend it to fans of this genre.

It was pretty good. The only thing is if you know physics, and especially astrophysics, some of the explanations of the structures will turn you off. Read morePublished 7 days ago by Amazon Customer
