In one chapter, the author attempts to describe the ships' ion drive, he obviously has no idea of the concept and has done no research into the subject.
The personal armour is described as PDS (personal defence suits), then in chapter 6 even ships get PDS but now it means Point defence system. More attention to detail required!
The story may have been written for under 14 age group originally but to make it more adult(?) gratuitous effing and cursing has been added. Not a pleasant addition and totally unnecessary in that context
The author describes himself as a historian, fine, but trying to tie every space manoeuver to something Nelson did at the battle of the Nile is frankly ridiculous.
Sorry but I won't be wasting any more money on this series
I really enjoyed the five books that make up this tale. It is well written a flows well. Characterizations are about right for this type of book. High art it is not, a good read it is.
If you like reasonably realistic sci fi that does not rely on a 'magic' to move it along then you will probably like this series.
In my opinion the Star Crusades series would make a great series of films - come on Peter Jackson read this series and make some films!
Since using the Kindle app on iPad I've been getting right back into reading Sci-Fi and I'd forgotten how great it can be. There is such a variety of free and low cost books available and it's great to discover a new author such as Michael Thomas. I'll definitely be buying his other books and look forward to many more!
On the whole, it's an average read but only if you enjoy your Sci-Fi packed full of US Marine Corps references(ooorah etc.), but for me there are better books out there that do this.
