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.

story is very technical, so if dry science bores you, this might not be the book for you. narrator is bad. Mispronunciations and horrible cliché accents abound. if you have time, read it instead
