Ut make it impossible for me to avoid unfavorable comparisons Young readers who have no knowledge of CS Forrester Orson Scott Card or the stunningly unreal special effects of the LucasSpielberg first Star Wars film will love this book recisely because they lack that frame of reference Those of us who know and love the works of the aforementioned writers and film makers will find it a let down at best I ll split the difference and rate it 3 stars but the reader must decide which camp they belong to and judge accordingly uite a short book it describes the Past Lives, Future Lives path of the hero of the different guy At it s core it follows the way of the space opera with different actors being given weight andersonality only as they appear to the Love with Every Beat protagonist Being a short book to get from doubted to hero doesn t take much There s a lot of oversimplified tech in the book only described as it becomes important but never in depth and lacking a little consistency Inarticular relativistic speeds are reached without much acceleration CPA Australia - Advanced Taxation problems and no tech that explains how s thatossible The engines are rated by top speed instead of by acceleration which doesn t make sense in space Still all that makes it fall deeply into some definitions of space opera But if you can get over all that it s an enjoyable read What a naval jokeI got as far as age135 before I uit I wanted to see how cheesy the book gets but it s so bad that I couldn t make it to the end It was OK If you are looking for a hard milsci fi series keep looking Everything about this book is strictly lightweight I would classify this as a young adult story based on it s lack of any kind of real seriousness of thought in the writing of the book The characters are all stamped out of a flat sheet of cookie dough And they make WAG s about the mysterious aliens which all miraculously turn out to be correct Despite being based on next to no evidence to back them up I guess that is the simplest way to advance your story if you are a inexperienced writer I hope it is inexperience instead of just lain laziness All that aside it isn t a bad story it just needed a lot olish to be the book the author thinks it is I will not be reading the rest of the series. Y Natural non genetically enhanced officer left in the fleet His classmates and superior officers have all expressed their concern that he will not be up to the demands of the space service Only bright and attractive junior officer Kelsey Mitchel has shown any sympathy for Gallant Now her life as well as a good many others depends of Henry Galla.
