Really good, it is well thought out the technology was well thought out and the aliens had alien motivations. A fun read with more wonder than books where star ships can simply jump light years.
The author clearly knows his stuff it is competently written the science is believable and the battle scenes are well executed.
All in all a good read

Worthy of 4 stars. Well written, engaging plot and characters that engage you and unlike some books where it takes a week to build a starship - the timescale is realistic. I also thought the overall concept and the alien motives were just different enough to make it all quite interesting.

Hooked from the first page until the last, a believable first encounter book, hope we get the follow on book soon.

I really really enjoyed this book, I don't think I've read anything like it. It's a first contact novel, but with a very true to what might actually happen scenario.

This isn't like your regular mil sci fi book at all - the cover and title kind of give it that vibe. It's something different, something better.

One of the best sci-fi books I have read this year. Well crafted, good plotline, decent characterisation for what is essentially an 'action' book. Concepts are interesting without detracting from the story. Worth the money.

One of the best books I've ever read. Gripping story and great characters. The fact that the technology is believable makes that much better. A must read for all Sci Fi fans.

I like most science fiction and enjoyed this one as a well wrote escapism story , a bit short for my tastes but like most left open for a sequel.

What a wonderful story with a great cast of characters. All we need now is the follow up and we need it sooner rather than later. Over to you Mr Mays.

A splendid mix of proper (ie, hard) science fiction and characterisation. First book in a long time that has kept me reading way past my bedtime.
