This is an excellent and well written series, this is the first time I have read books from this author. I read all 8 books of this series in 5 days as I could not put it down, I cannot wait for the next book in this series.
I am torn where this series is concerned! This was better than the previous book but I’m considering whether it’s worth continuing. The author states that his readers wanted him to concentrate on one or two characters which seems strange as the most successful sci-fi franchises (e.g. Star Trek etc.) all depend on team interactions! Splitting backwards and forwards between characters is annoying. I’m also getting fed up with their ships being shot up around them (in particular Satori!) and yet they can still fight far superior (undamaged) vessels and win! We still don’t have an international crew either. The other, unknown, star faring race is pretty obvious before the denouement too. I have decided that the readership who will like this most are the teens and YA. Mature readers will probably feel as I do, especially non Americans! I’ll give it 4 stars for the younger audience but only 2-3 stars for others!
