Ripping Good Yarn!

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!
