If you read Science fiction these books are a must read. Excellent story.

The main characters Socket, Streeter and Chute are very likeable. Their adventures mainly focus around Socket who has many revelations to contend with. This alone would have made a good story.
I also enjoyed the science element. I assume Mr Bertauski was making all of it up but some of his ideas did seem grounded in a lot of what is known or what is being experimented in today. I didn't care eitherway, I loved it and anyone who can can create scientific scenarios like he did is an author to keep reading.
Then there was the metaphorical element. I liked that too. If you wanted to, it allowed the reader to think about the story on a deeper level.
So well done Mr Bertauski, I will be buying more books from you.
Tony is a great author and storyteller on a par with our mutual heroes of Asimov and Anthony. I have read number of his other books they are all of the same quality and I recommend his works to everyone.
Overall, the series is well written, fast paced and enjoyable enough to recommend to others.
Book number one opened up the world and provided enough curiosity about the characters to get you reading to the end. With the way book one wrapped up, however, I wasn't convinced it could carry enough to book two. I was wrong.
Partway through book two is where I committed to the rest of the series, fully on board with Socket and his development as a character.
Book number three was a good finish to the saga, but here's where my personal tastes conflicted with the author. I found the book go off into a few confusing tangents near the end, which I can only assume was an attempt to probe the bigger philosophical life questions. For me, this interplay didn't meld well enough in keeping consistent with the story. However, it does end well and does so on a powerful note.
The fact I wanted to, and did, read this series from beginning to end is the reason for the five stars.
