    Often, with me, Space Operas are hit or miss There s either too much mindless action or too much mindless action or there s even too much mindless action.But sometimes, fortunately, I get caught up with a crew of some really great characters They get thrown in some interesting situations with plenty of translator humor, and then, suddenly, all my worries just seem to melt away If you re looking for some great pew pew, vroom, and kaa plowie action, this novel has it in spades and spades, and it s great fun, but none of that would be quite as fun or engaging without a great cast.This has a great cast It s also the kind of thing I ve always enjoyed about Star Trek It s all about people who get thrown into situations that may or may not be out of their ken or abilities, but often than not, it is the fundamental aspects of living and getting along that make them so damn real and a part of our lives The...

    This book was just what I was looking for at the time I picked it up low brow schlub that I am I have included it on my space opera shelf as well as my other science fiction shelves We get lots of action here, lots of esprit de corps as the crew of the new star ship , made up of people from all services pull together into one cohesive unit.So far as this being a military science fiction military fantasy we get fleet action, groundpounder action, even space fighter action Yes the story is well into science fantasy as well as science fiction and that will probably alienate , get it, science fictionalienate Oh well some readers However, I think there s enough hard science involved in the story to appeal to some hard science fiction fans Of course I realize others will be annoyed when that is twisted or whatever Life I guess.This is an adventure read, a first contact read, a war combat fiction read it s enjoyable on several levels and I think most who enjoy imag...

    Into the Black is the first published work as nearly as I can tell by Evan Currie, published thought he Kindle Direct Publishing program that has put into place It is a piece of military science fiction For those not entirely familiar with the term, military science fiction is just that science fiction focused around some military organization In most cases, it involves mankind at war against either themselves or some variety of aliens.Into the Black focuses on the first voyage of the Odyssey a new, high advanced spacecraft built by a conglomeration of nations formed in the aftermath of a war with the other conglomeration of nations The Odyssey is piloted by Eric Weston, a highly decorated pilot from the aforementioned war, has been assigned to leave the solar system and test their new FTL drive During this, they make contact with an entire civilization of humans and the bugs that are trying to kill them Naturally, matters move forward and the Odyssey finds itself taking an active part in the war This mostly seems to be due to the fact that Earth humans are good at fighting wars, and alien humans really don t have a clue in that regard There are other reasons, but going int...

    A real action fest with some nice ideas on technologies and the problems of waging war in space I would never call it a space opera The people on the Odyssey are all perfect soldiers idealistic, courageous, professional, almost infallible Their motivation is very thin and their characters would be the typical soldier cannon fodder used in many movies, if not for the fact that it is not possible to kill them unless they want to sacrifice themselves It i...

    Just finished and would like to quote Cpt Weston as much as Adm Tanner Wow The author is incredibly good in writing what I call a classical sci fi novel Nothing is sleek, shiny or too clean as most new sci fi novels and movies are The characters are being introduced, then developed as if the reader was on board the Odyssey itself the crew g...

    This is Space Opera Science Fiction For the most part, this was 3 stars for me It was heavy on the science which isn t a bad thing even though science was never a favorite subject of mine There were times where it seemed a little on the wordy side I did add a star to the rating because I was impressed by the time I finished I liked the story and the characters, even though both were a little on the perfect side The world building was also nicely done There were also some thought provoking questions and they were eloquently tossed around I always appreciate when t...

    Originally posted at FanLit.http www.fantasyliterature.com reviBecause he was such a spectacular fighter pilot during WWIII, Captain Eric Weston has been given command of the new spaceship Odyssey which is making her maiden voyage beyond the galaxy, to boldly go where no man has gone before What Weston and his crew find out there is quite a surprise a small spacecraft emitting a distress signal and containing a nearly dead human woman named Mia.When they take Mia back to their ship, revive her and learn her language, they discover that her ship had been attacked by non human aliens In fact, the Odyssey has arrived just in time to witness the aftermath of the destruction of an entire planet of humans by a horde of insectoid aliens, and these aliens don t seem to be content with just one planet The human targets, unfortunately, are somewhat pacifistic and do not have the weapons they need to defend themselves.For Captain Weston, there are so many questions that need answers First, obviously, is how there are humans so far away from Earth but that s going to have to wait, because the most pressing concern is whether or not the crew of Odyssey should try to help their genetic cousins Their duty, after all, is to go straight back to Earth and report what they ve found because if they stay and help, they ll likely be destroyed, and then Earth won t know to prepare for a possible alien attack But can they, in good conscie...

    A free on special book from and it reflects that The story takes place after World War 3, when the good guys North Americans, of course have won and are just starting with a new phase of space exploration that includes faster than light speed travel Captain Weston takes his starship out of system and receives an alien signal in another star system What do you think he does next Travels to that transmission without any communication back to Earth He finds the remnants of a massive battle and a trail his sensors can pick up to where the survivors went Now what do you think he does Yep, he follows it Then he finds a decimated planet, presumably destroyed by the aliens he is following and another trail Now guess what he does You guessed it, he follows this trail until he becomes embroiled in a firefight with aliens, chock full of military and literary cliches It was actually pretty amusing to read all the different descriptions of how thick the tension was and what you could do wi...

    This book gets my personal BIBLIOGASM award You know, that high we all get when reading a good book Where your practically jumping out of your skin with anxiety, anticipation Losing sleep because you have to know what happens Slightly manic and bursting to tell anyone who will listen how good the story is I was really excited because it s hard for me to find military sci fi that I like That has a good story, straight forward space travel and battle technology, no cookie cutter characters and a plot that you can get lost in I I left the Earth s orbit right along with the Odyssey on its maiden voyage to test it s new faster than light jump technology Manned with a crew of 300 of the world s best military, scientists etc I was drawn in to the mystery when they jumped to a system that held debris and wreckage from a very recent fight and further when they find a pod with a HUMAN in it She explains that they were attacked by alien creatures and the epic battles that go on as...

    More like 2.5.What to say, the book is competently written with a fast paced plot and looooots of action and some great stealth sections The tech is futuristic, of course, but described just enough for us to suspend the disbelief and see it as possible And the story is nicely rounded with an ending that suggest grand things to come.Personally the greatest failing for the book ar the characters Fairly one dimensional and uninteresting I understand they are not important and so the focus isn t on them but still I didn t care for anybody and as a result lots of tension that the book builds simply had no effect on me I mean I was rooting for the humans but I didn t care if half of th...
