Story was ok but this was far too short. I realise that it was free but other authors often offer the first full book free to entice you into reading the rest of the series. Unfortunately, I felt cheated and will not be bothering. I've given 2 stars for what content there was ( which was pretty good)

This book was too much just conversation without feeling. For some reason, I ordered book two, which has started out in such a dull way that I really won't be finishing it. There are so many good sci fi books out there that spark the imagination. This is just like a school play, or worse - crying out for someone to turn it into a tv series.

Picked this book up via the free Kindle section based upon the authors write up. Not a great fan of the buy a chapter at a time type format so we will have to see if I go much beyond book 3 (I bought book 2).

It's quite short but that makes it ideal lunch time reading - about 45 minutes long.

However, it's an enjoyable story well written with no glaring errors in syntax. The enemy seem a bit all too powerful and lucky, but maybe that will be explained later. I thought the story line was predictable (but again enjoyable) however there was nice twist at the end of book 1. Like a lot of modern space sotries death tolls in the thousands seem to be required.

Book 2 is purchased. Tiem will tell.

As a big fan of the various TV series this is clearly moulded on, I really enjoyed this opener and I'm looking forward to the next instalments and seeing the story and its characters develop. Ironically it's what I like about this book that might be a downside for others i.e. it's solidly in the mainstream of the genre with (so far) no real surprises, but frankly who cares. It's a great story with heaps of potential. Bring it on.

With all the hype in the description I expected better. Poorly written, poor use of vocabulary, in general pretty dire. Sorry one would think this was written by a 13 year old.

Short, far too short, reads like a star trek fan-fic that the author grudgingly edited to avoid being sued by Paramount. Unlikeable cardboard cut-out stereotypical characters plus obvious 'Mary Sue' protagonist. Transparently flimsy plot [what there is of it] and obvious set up for following books... which appear to be a pastiche of Voyager, Wrath of Kahn and David Weber's Honour Harrington series, without any of the better parts of them.

If it had been a physical book I would have thrown it away hard enough to leave a dent in the wall. Set phasers to delete.

Very STAR TREK like in many ways, a starfleet in a war with Gorn like creatures, passions run deep amongst the crew of the Defiant after the death of their beloved captain, and their newly promoted first officer Jessica King to command.

Voyager it aint.

Again an author selling chapters at a time instead of a complete novel/novella to make a buck at the customers expense, please stop ripping us off and sell it as one story or at least offer us an omnibus edition.

This is my first ever review, the story is fantastic, but like other readers, the story is very short. Having said this it is a free book! I look forward to the first of the series though.

This is a tale told over 6 books. Like Star Wars, it's told over 2 trilogies which start at book 4.

I would definitely say that they should be read in sequence from First Contact onwards.

Each book is good (4 stars) with identifiable characters who don't do stupid (ie out-of-character) things.

The whole lot together is a tale well worth a tenner. :)
