From the Author
George Lucas once said he wrote Star Wars with the 12 year old boy in mind. That's about how old I was when I first rented Empire Strikes Back from the public library, and I proceeded to rent it and Return of the Jedi over and over again. George Lucas targeted me well, but Star Wars also attracts adults to this day. It is a franchise written in a way to include everyone.
So when I decided to create my own space opera, I asked myself what would the next step look like? George Lucas aimed at 12 year old boys, so what would he create if he targeted 20 year old boys? Or 30? What would be his adult version of an epic space opera that teens could also get into, but with more depth that they wouldn't fully understand until years later?
That's what my Star Force saga is. Something teens will love, but something they won't fully understand until they're adults. As a 12 year old boy, I didn't want something made for 12 year olds, I just wanted something awesome. So that's what I've tried to do. Make it awesome. And make it something that kids like me back then could dive into and then grow with over time.
So I decided to start at the beginning and bought the whole origins series package just finished it and the next book in line. Believe me when I tell you it grows on you. It sinks into you so you can't wait to read the next one in line. My only worry is that I will eventually catch up and then I will have to wait for the next one to spawn.lol. Dinos, war, space, colonization and empire building... Like the add for prego sauce. ...... " it's in there".
From the time I started reading this book, I was enthralled. The story telling is phenomenal and I loved the characters as well as the world they live in. Even being a fictional story, it's still believable in itself and I am excited to read more. Thank you for sharing.
The series will start with a single training class of leaders, with the guidance of the head trainer and director. The first books are the slowest, but most defining of the concepts that will ring true for the series. What will keep an empire that will eventually span hundreds of systems, trillions of people, and aliens from internally collapsing into the darkness when challenged? What really makes the trailblazers the leaders that shape Star Force? Rome wasn't built in a day, it's the same with Star Force. To build the empire, you need training. Lots and lots of quality training with some good friends. The adventure will be well worth reading.
The concept is interesting but the book got bogged down in the details of buildings, spaceports and training. I understand the concepts of teaching the trainees to think and work together. At this speed, this series could outlive me.
if you are a geologist there are some things you are going to have to let slide, but other than that it is a good read with an interesting premise. the first four books are about the training of a military force designed to protect humanity from a force that abandoned earth 100,000 years ago. while you might think a tale about boot camp is boring you would be wrong. solid physics and interesting ideas about the physical limits you can reach as a soldier keep you interested as they train to become a force outside of government to face a force humanity can't beat. reminiscent of starship trooper, Heinlein's book, not the movie.
Very well written. Keeps you engaged. Extremely realistic as far as human behaviour as well as technological advancement. And the fact that there is already so much published d will keep me in reading material for a while! 😉
This is a great book series the forthought that went into it is astounding the author isn't so much as writing a book as wrighting prologue or a first chapter I think its a bit of a mix really theres not a whole lot of actions in the first few but it picks up in a way that is truly cool books but if your looking for a Empire building series thats still being developed you need to read this
Good focus on the plot but after that main character development he disappears into the team and the story, for me, lost direction. It came back together as the story wound down and I will continue the read to find out what develops.
