This trilogy is fantastic!! I started reading the first book as a kindle freebie, expecting them to be a general sci-fi adventure which held your attention for long enough to get you through to the end.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that the author manages to pull you in to the story and you get a really good feel for the characters.
The characters have a lot of depth to them, and are not necessarily as they seem with plenty of twists which keep you wanting to read further on and captivating you. At one moment you think one thing will happen, then from nowhere it changes direction (obviously with hindsight it all makes sense at the time) and managed to tie it all in together very well.
What you are left with is a story you want to keep reading and wanting the next instalment to become available. This really could be a long ongoing series of books and I hope this happens as I will be reading them.

Having purchased the trilogy for a ridiculously cheap price of £0.99 I settled down to read the Dark Space trilogy whilst on holiday. Before I knew it I had finished the first, devoured the second and happily chomped my way through the 3rd instalment. The Dark Space trilogy is part Battlestar Galactica, part Soap Opera and part Alien (in some places). Whilst this sounds a little bit unoriginal the combination of the different elements combine very well into a coherent plot line that grows with each book. What is great to see is that with each book Jasper T Scott's skill as a writer clearly improves. His confidence to be able finish the initial trilogy with the largest of the 3 shows how much he has honed his craft and that he feels comfortable with a deeper story with many plot lines running through it. The space battles are well described, the characters have significant backstories to become engaged with them, the universe it is set in is well realised with good technical information and the Gors and Sythians are some of the best sci-fi creations for a long time. I very much enjoyed this series and look forward to reading part IV.

Ethan Ortane is a smuggler who gets caught up in a fight for the survival of the human race, which the Sythians and their subservient species, the Gors, are trying to eliminate. Mixed up in the machinations of this story are the antics of Alec Brondi, a sort of Vito Corleone type gangster; Alara Vastra, Ethan's co-pilot at the beginning of the story who is changed by Brondi to be something completely different; Atton, Ethan's long lost son who is not who he seems at first; and Admiral Hoff, who has an extraordinary past, and turns out to be the father of Atton's half sister, Atta; and Destra, Ethan's wife who he has been searching for for years, whose story is told in a series of 'flashbacks' going back 10 years. In addition, there are a number of secondary characters, mainly military, that complete the line up for this story.

The plot centres around the aliens-trying-to-eliminate-mankind theme, but with quite a few twists and turns. Essentially, the remains of mankind have shored themselves up into a region of space called Dark Space, which is only accessible by a huge Stargate type portal, and it is defended by a massive carrier, the Valiant. What happens to the crew of the Valiant is key to how this story plays out, which you will just have to read to find out.

I read the trilogy as one book. Did I like it? Yes and no. It was a compelling story, although it took time for it to get going in my opinion. I liked the plot twists and turns, and the author makes reasonable attempts at injecting the right amount of technology into the story, without which a space opera wouldn't just work in my opinion. However, I did find some of the technology deployed to be somewhat thin, particularly the area surrounding the use and (non) detection of holo-skins.

I thoroughly enjoyed this collection, revelling in the pace and flow of the description and dialogue throughout! Jasper has a keen grasp of how a story should progress, and the development of the characters through the story was interesting and fascinating to see.

The science fiction elements are fascinating, showcasing the vast amounts of preparation that must have gone into the background of the story. Reading the book feels like joining a story that has been unfolding for many many centuries as well as highlighting a particular crucial point in the lives of the characters that are followed throughout.

Whilst I was reading the collection I was frustrated by the flow of Arala/Angel's battle with the memory chip, but in hindsight I see this as a real involvement with the character, hoping that she would overcome Brondi's plans for her and come back to Ethan. My reaction when this was resolved was pure, again showing that this story was engaging.

I love technical and background stuff, and the inclusion of a lengthy guide to the universe is a big plus as far as I'm concerned. I haven't read that yet, but I will be dipping into that soon.

I look forward to more Dark Space adventures (and am mightily pleased to find there's a FOURTH book to read!).
