This review is from: Out of the Black (Odyssey One Book 4) (Kindle Edition)
As the title suggest this is book four of a series. I have read and enjoyed the other books and would suggest that it is worthwhile reading them in order. That said this book stands alone as a good read. The story moves along at a pace. As is normal in this genre the characters are stereo types but reasonably well drawn in spite of that. The author has introduce an element of the supernatural by introducing 'beings' which are, if I've understood correctly, the spiritual distillation of all life on the planet. I can understand why the author has done this because otherwise this part of the story is a rewrite of H.G. Wells' War of the Worlds. I'm just note sure that the story needed this element. Certainly it is not clear why this entity should be American. The positive aspect of Kindle downloads is that they are inexpensive and if you give the story a try and you don't like it is not a costly mistake. I think military Sci Fi buffs will enjoy this tightly written if not very original effort.
