If this was intended for a Young Adult audience, then I think the synopsis or book description should say so. If not, then this is one where a potentially good story has been spoiled by poor delivery. Most of the characters, displayed little emotional maturity ("I've just made the most important discovery in the last millennium of human history, but I'm homesick and would rather be home" - really?).
Every female character (human or otherwise) was described in terms of her looks (and amazingly all were "stunning" or "striking" blondes, brunettes, etcetera ); surely we can do better than that in this day and age - YA intended or not?
The most annoying thing is that the premise for the story is a good one, and a really good space opera could have been born. There are some terrible plot holes (can't tell you without spoilers), but to its credit the story moves along at a fast pace, although seems to have been written to just set up the following books.

I only tend to leave reviews if something is really good or.....really bad. I'm sincerely amazed at the amount of 5 star reviews this book has had; as these convinced me to get the book I may have to re-evaluate how I choose in future.
Just so you know I forced myself to finish yhe book in the hope it'd improve....it didn't.
The writing style is truely dreadful and reminds me of a comic script....only without the benefit of pictures! The characters are two dimensional at best, there're plot holes bigger then the crater the ship was found in and any problems, large or small, that the 'heros' have to face are conveniently dealt with........with absolutely no drama what so ever.
Just to give you an idea of what you can expect (without a spolier if you still intend to read); the main characters are on the moon having a meeting over a simple meal which included chips (crisps) and sodas......seriously!!
Don't say you've not been warned.

For some reason, self-published sf tends to follow certain conventions. Major among these is the plucky, but tiny civilisation of the Earthers (Tellurians? ) stumbling across a galaxy-spanning, and often inimical civilisation. And then, of course, they find a lost, crashed, you name it spaceship that transforms the game. Or perhaps a friendly civilisation that gives them a leg up. In this offering, the title gives the plot line.

The story starts with two spacemen stranded on the moon by a bad landing, caused by a mysterious signal that overwhelmed their automated landing. At this point I'm happy to watch the story unfold, but the wooden, repetitive dialogue gets in the way of enjoyment. However. the story does move on, and we quickly see our heroes finding a giant, crashed spaceship, largely buried in moondust (and conveniently nearby). It had to be nearby to overpower the lander...Exploration follows, with a reprieve from asphixiation, and (wait for it!) the discovery of a funtioning artiicial intelligence!!!! So, breathable earth-type air, and a helpful AI. And a broken spaceship...

At this point the story could have branched. Usual plot one: we get scientists up from Terra who uncover technology that advances us some hundreds of years. Usual plot two: it really is one of ours, just very old (that air is REALLY suspicious), Usual plot three: it belonged to an advanced race of humans who planted a colony on Earth, long ago, and this ship just happened to have an accident. Etc, etc. To its credit, this story uses none of these plot cliches, but reveals that the galaxy is dominated by an evil civilisation that our starship fought. Not on its own, of course, but as a member of a small grouping of stars. Only a remnant was able to escape, with a colony ship or two.

Tepid read. Such a disappointment. What a great potential plot, moon wreck, survival, discovery of an extraterrestrial spaceship but it was poorly managed. No descriptives that dragged you into that world, no suspense, drama or thrills that left you hanging on the edge of your seat. This could have been a feast of many dishes, instead it was a trip to McDonalds for a bacon muffin. Bland, repetitive and it needs a good editor.
Amazon self publish needs better quality control if payment is involved.
Sorry ....try harder

Basic stuff. Simple one dimensional characters who, if they are a man, worry too much about what their wife/sister/mother will think, or if they are a woman spend most of the time worrying about what colour uniform they should wear and how to keep their elegant blonde hair out of their eyes. Oh and in all the stumbling about on the moon and exploring a giant wrecked spaceship nobody gets a cut finger!

I'm struggling with this series. The story line is very good and the themes work well. It may be just me, but I can't get on with Raymond's writing style. It sometimes reminds me of a 'B' movie script. That said, I've bought all of the Slaver series for the Kindle, and will press on and enjoy the story, if not the delivery.

really easy read. I enjoyed all the series of the slaver wars and now look for other books by the same author.

I had to stop part way through the free preview and thank Amazon for this service which has saved me at least £1.87. I genuinely intended to read the whole preview, but the writing is frankly just too bad to read. After surviving a crash landing because of "interference" (we're not told why they couldn't abort the landing) with no apparent damage to the lander (which has come down with one foot in a crater) or it's contents, which include months of provisions and a lunar rover, the two astronauts have a good lament about their bad luck, while the narrator repeats ad nauseam that they have, and miss, their family members. After having a nap they unload the rover, completely undamaged, only to be told they "can't seem to catch a break" because the automatic guidance system won't work and they'll have to drive it manually. Oh, calamity. Apparently, one astronaut hates leaving the safety of the lander...so why did he even leave the safety of his home planet?! The breaking point for me was one astronaut saying “There’s an awful lot of this damn dust everywhere. I hope it doesn’t screw up the rover.” It's a frickin' lunar rover! It might be moondust-proof, don't you think?
Considering this is the combination of three previously published short stories, I hoped the author might have taken the opportunity to review and edit it having improved his writing skills later, but it seems not. There are better things to read out there that cost less, I'm going to find the, now and hope you will too.
