Up till now you have fairly standard space opera,but the same old,same old is done with as the this novel takes the reader down unusual paths with well thought out twists and turns that took me places I never saw coming. Any more detail and there’d be spoilers. If you like your space opera simple-good guys wipe the bad guys,kiss their horse and go home you may be in the wrong place. If you want well crafted story telling that sticks with you,you may be in luck. Some of the best written,original scifi I have come across in a long time. Job well done,Mr. Shaw. Recommended.
*looks over book* Indie come back.
*looks around book* Johnsoooooooooon.
Oh no. I have more favorites. Yep. This series made my auto buy list quite easily. Where Ancillary Justice Failed to deliver for me, this book succeeded. I love sentient star ships and this fits like a glove.
In my review of that book, which I gave just three stars, I said it wasn't really a "story" because it-couldn't-stand-on-it's-own. I still feel that way and believe it would be much better as a prequel or early chapter in this book. I lean more towards an early chapter or even a "Part I" to this book. It is really a detailed focus on the early key-events acting as the gestation stage for one of the key characters in this book albeit, not a "Human" character.
I've referred to this as a "Stunning" Novel yet, it is easy to follow along, especially considering the many interesting characters and how much was covered. This is thanks to the author's presentation, largely that "prequel" Independence. I particularly liked the "recruitment and Training processes building the Liberation Forces.
In my recent review of another book, I commented that i thought That Book would be the Rare Book that didn't predict: "Evil AI Machined Destroy Mankind". It wasn't, but this IS that Rare Book. My personal limitations on giving too much away prevent me from additional comment on the difficulty of accepting Artificial Intelligence expanding and becoming sentient "machines".
The only negative comment I can make about this book is that it ended. Fortunately, it appears this will be the beginning of an on-going series; one I'm really looking forward to.
Review by THE HOLEY ONE
Complex story line continues to develop from book zero, which was a great short story by itself.
The story did seem to bog down for me toward the middle of the book. I felt that too much time was taken up with organizing, base set up, and recruit training. Guess I'm more interested in action sequences, space battles, strategy, and ground missions.
Thought that all or at least most of the carrier's weapon systems should have been repaired within a month, considering the resources available.
Looking forward to the next two novels, as I'm Interested to see how the unknown group fits into the story line, as well as the Red fleet.
Recommended with slight reservations, hopefully later books will have a more casual writing style as the author gains experience.

It started out reminiscent of the tired old trope of 'AI gets independence and starts killing humans' and almost immediately turns that, and all...Read more
