Let me start by saying
1. I am rubbish at writing reviews
2. I'm not a sci fi aficionado
3. But I knows what I likes

And I love the Spinward Fringe series very much. My interest was sparked by Broadcast 0 being free for the Kindle - can I say as a marketing technique this worked really well as I have subsequently bought the next 6 books in the series.

If you like an epic yarn with characters you engage with, plot twists and turns, huge battles etc then the Spinward Fringe is for you. What I love about it is that the author has self published these electronically (I think) as a way of getting his work out there - well done Mr Lalonde! You've made a fangirl out of me :)

Get yourself an e-reader, get Broadcast 0, get hooked.

I read the first in the series and as a result had to pick up the next installment, knowing of course that in so doing I would likely be committing myself to purchasing the remainder of the series.

Broadcast 1 and 2 continues the good writing and enjoyable story telling that was visible in the first book. The story moves on at a rapid pace and we catch up with most of the characters from broadcast 0 who are now spread far and wide amongst the planets in the galaxy, mostly as a result of there captain Jonas being captured.

But Jonas turns up as Jake Valance, unable to remember anything more than 5 years ago and causing chaos as a mercenary style bounty hunter doing most anything for some hard cash, seemingly unaware of his past.

There's a great twist near the end of the book that I never saw coming, and it shows a real imagination for pushing a story to new boundaries, and keeping the reader wanting more.

I enoyed the first book a great deal, have to say I enjoyed this book as much. Although I did notice a few more spelling/grammatical mistakes in this book, but it did not spoil the enjoyment too much.

Two books into the series and I am hooked, the third will be purchased and downloaded to the Kindle very soon, and I will get through all the series you can bet on that.

If you have read the first book in the series and enjoyed it I think you will find this one as compelling to read, if you didnt like the first one then do not torment yourself by reading this review, the series is not for you, move on now.

Another bargain from Mr Lalonde, the next two books in the Spinward Fringe Series for the same price as one of the later books. Another good marketing technique after setting the first book in the series Broadcast 0 Origins for free.

If you enjoy plot twists, huge epic battles, whole solor systems at war etc that would put a series of Star Trek/Stargate to shame then the Spinward Fringe Series is for you!

Originally an interesting premise, along space opera lines, of the "Bold captain and plucky crew take on nasty intergalactic corporations apparently to defend their homeland" type, but soon deteriorates into what is clearly going to become a never ending saga (in fact it has!!, up to seven books now) that endlessly repeats the same hackneyed themes and is pretty dull fare. I know authors have to eat and series make them money, but there is a limit for me and to predictably go where many have gone before is more than I can take, so I gave up.

I bought these books after reading the prequel on a free promotion. I wish it were another way around. The prequel is a well-written book with a Vorkosigan Saga-esque plot: a bunch of virtual reality heroes assigned a real mission on a covert mission ship. The world situation was very now - global corporations vs. independent planet-bound and space colonies. The main character, a war veteran, Jonas Valent, coasting through life plucked from obscurity and raising to the challenge had a bunch of friends and a beautiful and clever love interest. The book was full of unexpected twists, the biggest of which was erasing the character at the end of three novels.

I wanted more of Jonas Valent and his merry crew. But the "Spinward Fringe Broadcast 1 and 2" is different, and not in a good way. It feels like not only Jonas Valent was erased and replaced by a less deep version, but the writer as well. The writing quality is lower; it's sparse, full of Stephen King's bane - adverbs. It moves repetitively but fast enough to get the standard "bondsmen in space" yarn going. The narrative duly delivers adventures with chases and laser shootouts, but not much else. Valent reloaded is at most two-dimensional, and his ragtag crew just stick figures. I'm intrigued by an unexpected twist promised by one of the reviewers, but not enough to read on.

If there ever was an argument against turning pro kindle writer, this book is it - the author sacrificed his unique voice to make a living.

Reviewing the series and overall this is a very good well written series. Although the first 4 or 5 books are gripping and original, I found I was forcing myself to finish the last. Some great ideas but It just seemed to loose its way. As daft as it sounds the universe just got too big.

I had to re-read Spinward Fringe Origins to re-acquaint myself with the main characters in this book, otherwise it would have been confusing. Whereas the Origins book left me with an impression that it was about a group of teenager gamers - complete with appropriate dialogue - who are lucky in the real world, this book is grittier and develop people's characters in a more adult way. Perhaps that is what the Author wanted. Both books read like episodes of Star Trek, Stargate, Andromeda etc. with the Goodies overcoming the Baddies against all odds.

I enjoyed reading it and, at times, could not put it down until I had found out what happened next. I will be seeking the next instalment.
