Earth has undergone both a nuclear war and global warming and yet there are still remnants of humanity struggling to survive. David wants to help restore Earth but meets some resistance as some groups don't want a change to the status quo.
David and John keep getting themselves in sticky situations and have countless narrow escapes, and John's beautiful daughter Elizabeth is turning heads everywhere much to David's chagrin. There is a bit of a surprise ending that sets the stage for the next book in the series.
Loads of adventure and intrigue, wonderful characters, vivid, detailed scenes and as always good hard science fiction, nothing magical.
Book one is a solid hard science fiction exploration story of a group of humans against the universe. It's plausible and entertaining, with a solid plot and good understandable characters. If you like that genre, I highly recommend it.
Books two and three are a rather disappointing followup to book one, with realistic but (to me) not terribly interesting stories of human disillusionment, treachery, and violence. There is little exploration of the mysteries book one raised and most of the action and danger is due to humans and not the world around them. They're not bad books, but I didn't find them great ones either.
Book four is a typical action-adventure flick of Small Outnumbered Group versus Big Bad Tyranny. It has a coherent plot and perfectly understandable characters and actions, but I don't particularly like stories of human vs human treachery and there was none of the wonder and exploration I hoped for. There were science fiction trappings but a very generic boring plucky-little-hero storyline and lots of violence.
Book five was an incoherent ramble from Extreme Danger to Treacherous Government to Good Guy Stupidity and back to Human Betrayal, all linked together by plenty of violence, danger, conspiracy, and Personal Heroics Saves the Day. It was also extremely repetitive, with a half-dozen chapters where the last page could be summed up in a single identical sentence, followed by almost as predictable a start to the next chapter. Very little actual plot or characterization and a serious surfeit of This Hero Can Do Anything.
Book six is not out yet, but the setup for it indicated that it will follow solidly after books four and five. It might be higher quality, but will almost certainly be more of the generic action-adventure vs. humans and not true exploration or interesting mysteries.
TL;DR: Book one does a good job of the exploration and mysteries of the universe with cooperative characters, books two and three have much more about humans and violence than exploration, and the second trilogy is poorly written action adventure without much plot or character development. If you like book one, read the others from the library before you spend any money on them.

But we will have to wait for the next book. The books in this series would make great films.
The readers are drawn in as though they are part of the plot.
The theme of a future Earth is not so unrealistic.
Again it gives us an avenue of imaginative escapism!!!
Looking forward to Book 6.
