4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting sci fi with a traditional approach June 6 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had this author's series recommended to me and decided to give it a try. It is like reading a WW2 novel with the twist of modern sci-fi. Sometimes it is predictable but quite often the writer does something unusual that keeps you coming back. I am now on book #8, so I guess I am thoroughly hooked.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great space pulp series Jan. 3 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This series is a blend of Star Trek (the new movies) meets Battlestar Galactica. It's light, easy to get into and keeps you turning pages.

I love the shorter, more frequent format as well, I don't feel as disconnected as I do with some books.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not recommended for adults Oct. 24 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
On a positive note, this book is well edited and formatted; I have no negative impressions of spelling, grammar, page layout or kindle formatting. However, the plot is cliche and simplistic, the science is weak, the characters are unimpressive and the setting started out with promise but became increasingly unbelievable as I read on. This book is written as though in preparation for a movie adaptation: it lacks depth and describes things which could be implied. I will probably finish it, but I will almost certainly regret it afterwards.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Frontiers Saga: Episodes 1-3....a roller coaster ride with perfect pacing June 1 2014
By Thomas M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Great SiFi space opera with strong characters and interesting story lines....without the in-depth and often times boring hard science fiction. If you liked/loved B.V. Larson's "Star Force" series then this saga is right up you alley. I'm on Episode 5 and going strong. Someone wrote "Star Trek on Steroids", I would say spot on target!!

I rate this book 4.25 on a scale of 1-5.

Just to help put this book, and other similar types, into perspective here is a list of some of my favorite SiFi books (I tend to like action/adventure/drama with great characters and creative story lines):

Dune (my personal all time favorite space opera) - Frank Herbert (5.0)
Hyperion (the Book of Cantos series is awesome and ends with a bang) - Dan Simons (4.5)
Heroes Die - Matthew Stover (more Fantasy than SiFi but an awesome edge of your seat read) (4.5)
Star Force Series (all 10 books are fun reads) - B.V. Larson (4.25 on average)
Old Mans War - John Scalizi (4.25)
Forever War - Joe Haldeman (4.25)
Forging Zero (a brutal and nerve racking read, but fun) - Sara King (4.25)
Enders Game (fun story, but IMO not as good as many rate it) - Orson Scott Card (4.0 - 4.25)

Thanks for reading :)

5.0 out of 5 stars A thoroughly enjoyable read! Feb. 13 2013
By R. White - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There is plenty of action with interesting villains and an extraordinarily lucky main character. Although the success enjoyed by the main character is unlikely, it is easy to sink into the action and just enjoy the flow. There are very few logic errors which make this a rarity in the self published genre. I would recommend this book to anyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Sci-Fi Series May 10 2013
By A. Benson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I liked the first book so much I ended up buying all the others as well. As often seen in unsung authors struggling to break into the mainstream, there were plenty of typos and grammatical errors, but not enough to keep me from enjoying the stories thoroughly. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series and will look for more from Ryk Brown.

By Albert J. Belair - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the best sci-fi series of this genre I have ever read. Besides being a good read there are no grammatical or syntax errors that have stopped my reading in mid sentence that I have sometimes encountered with these ebooks.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, but. Jan. 30 2014
By Rex007can - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It was, overall, an entertaining book. If you take it as such, then it's good and there's no problem with that.

But... this is more of a space-opera/Fantasy book than a science fiction book in the sense that, known laws of physics like light speed, relativity, mass/energy etc are pretty much completely ignored. For example, in space, technically, sub-light top speed is not dependent on thrust, acceleration is. There it makes no sense when they look at a ship spec to say "it can only make 10% light at most"... no... just no. It also completely ignores time dilation at 50% light and a number of other laws of physics as we know them.

Further more, coincidences are much too common in this book, coincidences of absolutely astronomical proportions in fact. Jump millions of kilometers away in an infinite amount of empty space....coincidentally right next to two small ships.. wow... jump again, by mistake 1000 light years away smack dab in between ships in the middle of a battle... ONE THOUSAND LIGHT YEARS AWAY...hold on just a minute there...we just went from the mathematically almost impossible to "hand of God"/Fantasy level. And then Na-tan legend... we've left this universe and gone into full fantasy mode now...

I also read in other reviews that the Navy just doesn't work that way, that doesn't bother me at all... whatever...

The characters are relatively well done, the action is pretty well written and flows along, but the dialogs can become a bit stiff and bland. In fact I think the dialogs are what the author needs to work on most. The navy stuff and real "science" are easily fixed with a bit of research... but the dialogs.. that's hard.

So all in all, not a bad read for me and I will be reading the rest of the series hoping the author improves as it goes along. But not a classic, not a "real" Navy or military book, and more a Fantasy book than Science Fiction.

That's why... a 3.
