    Talented story line, but truly needs to hire an editor or get a volunteer 8th grader to read it with a red pen. The sloppy grammar is distracting. I would pay for an edited version, but don't plan to read the sequels because of this lack.

    Great read, hard to put down. Excellent story line. Lots of twists, also an interesting romantic story. A must for science fiction readers.
  • Irritating Grammar

    How did such poor grammar get past the editor? It overrides enjoyment of the storyline.

    I'm sorry, but GRRR. As this book was under "Sci-Fi", the author should have done a bit more simple research. Not a good understanding of physics, thus some tough-to-chew descriptions of damage, fights, and piloting (and guns work fine in a vacuum, watch Mythbusters, lol). Emotionally the story was well tended, author making good on conveying every facet. Unfortunate is the main characters seemingly constant pain.
  • Not Very Good

    This is a space opera novel about a military character who makes many sacrifices in order to fulfill his duties. There were many plot holes in this book, and many situations which just weren’t plausible. The science was also unsound, such as lasers not being able to work in space since there is no air. Mr. White would benefit by researching science a little more before writing another novel. Not a recommended read until then.
  • Thank you Mike Smith

    I have had the biggest desire for a space sci-fi like Star Wars or star trek and this paid the bill. It is intertwining fun and awesome writing in my opinion. Thank you for such an awesome and fun story.
