5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book 8 Jan. 2015
By Smokey
Format:Kindle Edition
I really liked this book, like other reviewers it took a couple of chapters to really get into it but after that I was hooked and read the whole book in one night. Now I am onto the second book and enjoying that one as well.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very very soft SF 27 Jan. 2015

Call me picky, but I like my SF authors to know the laws of physics. Typical mistakes made here include saying that when you leave the Earth's atmosphere you lose the influence of gravity and thinking that when you blow something up in orbit the pieces somehow lose all their existing velocity and crash to Earth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good story line but ....... 28 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I enjoyed this book but it has quite number of spelling mistakes which alter the context of what you are reading. You most definitely need to ignore the gobbledygook explanations of the science! If the author concentrated on the stories of the characters this could be an excellent spsce opera series.

1.0 out of 5 stars A waste of time and money 3 Aug. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Rarely have I encountered a story so poorly written and constructed . The characters are badly designed and the plot is nit particularly original. I suspect that it may be a translation which may account for the spelling and grammatical errors. Not to be recommended for anyone over school age
