Well after reading the second book that was very face paced (which i personally prefer) this book goes back in time as we just start to get out into the universe. i enjoyed it, it was a bit slow for me, but i stuck with it and I'm now on to the next book in the series.

The saga continues after the Federation took a sound beating from the Hocklyns and the AI Masters. What survivors remained gathered together, resupplied and headed for Earth. It wasn’t that easy as Hocklyn war ships surrounded the home planet and had landed their version of Marines to root out and destroy all survivors. Once reaching Earth’s system our refugees, whom I’ll continue to refer to as the Federation, numbering some thirty thousand settled on and within large asteroids to remain hidden. Earth was not prepared for what the Federation had to offer, and wouldn’t be for roughly one hundred years. During this time the Federation secretly helped Earth increase their knowledge and expand their technology so that by the end of that period the Federation could reveal themselves. Once that was done the real work began. Among the many goals were: increase the population, educate and train the population, raise the overall technology level, build defenses, weapons, weapons platforms, and space ships; many, many space ships. Prepare for the Hocklyns to eventually discover Earth!
"Eyes opened wide", "sparks came out of the consol", "blue white vortex" etc are repetitive phrases that rapidly grate and give a childish feel to the writing. In general the people are poorly described and don't feel real. When there is no action this weak character description makes the story boring (not helped by flat narration).
These clear faults are compensated by a good story and strong long term narrative. So I do keep buying the next (rather short) "book" in the series.
another great addition to the series , a little slower than the first but still good
