    A good book worth the read, but some character names seem lifted from other books Senator Rione of the Callas Republic is in Jack Campbell's lost fleet books, Valerian steel sword George RR Martins Game Of Thrones, but I did enjoy the book and off now to get the second one
  • Readable if you can turn off your brain

    I love SF but authors must know Science. This one does not. Mike have no idea about motion in space and thinks that ships in space fly as planes in air (probably because StarWars). I mean I can accept FTL drives but loops in space or braking an reversing in seconds is just laughable. He also has a problem understanding speeds and distances or the effect of rail gun projectiles. The list goes on and on. On top of that, the timescale is wrong and adults behave like adolescents. If you are not worried about any of that, you will enjoy it.

    I found this to be a thoroughly enjoyable book. There's credit due, and in no particular order other than how they pop into my head, for the: technical explanations (which suited me as a geek/curious mind); interesting and not at all contrived feel of flashbacks and such; well defined plot with twists and a little for everyone by way of action, romance, introspection etc; and believable characters. Very much looking forward to the next in the trilogy.
  • Excellent, fast paced book

    This book needs a good proof-reader and editor. There are so many spelling errors that it becomes frustrating to try to read more than a chapter at a time. Definitely another mind and pair of eyes should have looked at this work before publication.

    I thought this book was excellent. I've not really been a big fan of reading fiction, but after reading the first chapter I was captivated by the characters and plot lines, which where both well written. I read the book from start to finish in 3 days, with me not getting much else done in that time! But well worth it, looking forward to the follow up book!
