I can appreciate character building but something has to happen at some point to hold your interest. I made it 3hrs without much happening. There are so many better titles. I'm asking for a refund I couldn't finish tho one.

I wasnt impressed. The tactics utilized are. idiotic at best. Early in the ship battle he mentions torpedo tubes, but then never uses them. The so called honorable commander keeps his crew and himself at general quarters living on stims for days at a time with apparently no degradation of their performance, unless you count the complete lack of tactical thinking throughout the book as a result of this stupidity. As pointed out by another reviewer the main characters are generic and almost carbon copies of each other. Besides all that the author seems not only to have his characters commit atrocities, and to do things detrimental to morale and the lives of their crews, but he seemingly whole heartedly endorses their actions. If this is his notion of a good commander he's obviously never spoken to a real service member. To top it all off he's very generic in his physics concept, and the ships are bland and unremarkable aside from their size. All in all the premise and the execution of the plot was mediocre at best.
The narrator made the women sound like men with bad accents.

This was a refreshing SiFi story, a great start to the series, I did find this a little over descriptive of personnel in the story, later it soon got going. Perhaps a little more technical would be nice. But that could be me. Totally looking forward to later books in this series. The narrator is brilliant, well done thank you.
It’s a good written book, in the first book we are introduced to the different politics and lives of all 3 ruling entities. But we Focus mostly about alliance and the conspiracy to start a war with federation. Alliance isn’t as big as federation but they are weak democracy ruled sheeps. A lot of action And sacrifices.
This brilliantly written book tells the story of 3 different races although at first it took me a while to pick up on some of the transitions between going from one race to another. That was more due to me not paying close attention as I listened to the audio book rather than any problem with the way the book is written, or I would have encountered problems later when I was paying attention and I didn't. The characters are superbly fleshed out and genuinely identifyable sorts of people we all have known. It's the mind of story that plays out so real, you can definitely imagine yourself in it. Not every beloved character survives this battle but that's all I'm saying. Stop reading reviews already and get the dang book! I assure you, you'll be glad you did!
