Well, what's not to like?! If you like Star Trek and Star Wars you'll love this. Full of implausabilty it is, but it's well told. Full of action but sufficient attention paid by the author to character to engage and sweep the reader along. The story is based on a classic approach: maverick hero leader supported by loyal and highly skilled followers confronts hordes of ruthless aliens bent on the destruction of earth forcing a divided humanity to make a joint and desperate last stand. Although drawing on a big legacy of sci-fi writers ( you'll recognise lots of the elements) this is a skilfully written and enjoyable read that will make it hard to prison. Highly recommended but read the first two in the series first!

What a ride! This is back to ethos of book 1 I thought; no spoilers but once again Captain Weston is back against the baddies and winning. Well almost. It was good to read of other ships and forces in the battle. Some of the back history is filled in and the plot gets even more convoluted. I was pleasantly surprised to find the enemy (and indeed other NACS ships command crews) were not all shown as bumbling fools. No spoilers well a little one - There's a really really interesting twist at the end...

There's a little bit more science used - and some repetitive texts / segments but the general book is very readable and the story continues along at great pace. This is a good series of books, for myself when book 4 rattles off the keyboard I will be buying it.

I had been waiting for this book for a while now. My pre-order sitting there patiently in cyberspace.

As soon as it was available, I practically devoured this book in a matter of hours, only to be left with as big a cliff hanger as the previous book

Hurry up Mr Currie and write some more.

Love the way Evan Currie spins a yarn, fast paced like able characters, excellent plot.

Devoured this in 3 days flat and thoroughly enjoyed it. Even though you need to read the previous two books (Into the Black and Heart of the Matter) to understand the storyline this is a fast paced plot with a very interesting twist right at the end. It introduces a new element into the story arc which remains a bit of an enigma all the way through and the book is actually all the better for it; leaving you wanting more without detracting from the events going on around you.

Please hurry up with the next installment!

This has a lot of things wrong with it. It has perhaps too many characters and points of view, and sometimes no point of view at all; it loves humans kicking butt; and it has a couple of complete golden-boys for examples, but it's happy easy reading, has a clever way of showing the effect diverging technologies and still leaves you grunting 'Oorah' as out of their depth humans pull off clever maneuvers to devastating effect. I can't help but like it.

This point in the series is where the books, in my opinion, really starts to lose momentum. I still enjoyed it as a continuation of the Odyssey One series, but I felt there was alot more mileage to be taken out of the present storyline without the addition of extra vessels (which are never explained properly) and so on. Still an enjoyable read if you've gotten this far into it, but don't expect it to be as good as it was before.

I am really enjoying this series. Good fun. This latest episode is a little slow to get going, though. There appears to be a lot of filler,. The real story would have only taken about half the book. It really does ratchet up towards the end and leaves the reader wanting more. A typical TV style season finale, designed to suck you in. That is no bad thing and I am looking forward to see how things pan out.

One of the best series of books I've read in a while. Good storyline, with a steadily unfolding plot with developments that fit in with previous parts of the story or previous books, but which are not obvious in advance. Really looking forward to how it ends (or hopefully how it continues - there seem to be enough ideas to keep it going for a few more books yet!).

My god these books are addictive, one of the best action novels by far, im so glad I didnt discover these when only the first was out, the pain waiting for the next novel would have been off the charts, right on to the 4th one, Evan if theres any chance for getting the next one out any quicker would be appreciated.
