Almost five stars
I basically listened to the first and second books in this series in a single huge gulp. And the third book is downloading to my computer as I write this review. So do I recommend this series? Yes. Heck, yes.
Now for the whining: The characterizations are great. I suspect this is Eric Flint's contribution. Most of his books do a good job with characters. And I love the fact that there is actually science in this book. A lot of science fiction is close to completely science-free. But there is something missing. A sense of wonder over the amazing discoveries they are making. It's like a child in a toy store. "Oh, look at this toy. Oh, there's something else. Here's something else..." They don't linger to savor discoveries. It's like the story is approaching a climax and then backs off just short of it time after time.
So I feel a bit unfulfilled after listening to the first two books, but only a little. I really enjoyed the ride. And I'm really looking forward to the third one.
