There are a couple of irritating faults in the writing, though. Constantly writing that the doors open vertically is not necessary, once we know that a door on the star ship opens vertically we can take that as a given. And which way is vertically? Do they open up, or down, with a horizontal opening? Or sideways, with a vertical opening? I thought I had it until a flat rock balanced vertically on two other rocks was described as providing a roof. Really? A vertical roof? How's that work? Ending sentences with at, for, etc. is simply bad grammar. Have someone proofread the work that is not grammatically challenged, please.
I have seen grammar in books that is much worse, so this wasn't too bad. I have also seen repetition that is much worse, so I can accept that, too. But a vertical roof? Okay, I can let that one slide, too. But all together? The cost is one star.
Fix those minor faults and this will be a five star book.
One other good thing, no DRM.
I recommend this book.
The whole thing is framed using tropes common to many kinds of “Space opera,” from as far back as “Doc” Smith, to the latest Star Wars adventure. But the author does not stop there, including imaginative elements gleaned from thought-worlds found far and wide. A real shake up. I enjoyed it immensely. I award it five stars
The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat all of that info here. The author did a good job of giving readers an overview of what the series is about. There are a lot of twists, turns, and surprises written in the storyline. I really enjoyed reading this book and can't wait to read more of this series.
