    Mike Smith fully develops the key characters and writes a tense storyline with a dramatic ending. A great read!!

    Well, what can you say about a book that tells a story so strong and subtle at the same time, that you find yourself sweating, running for cover, laughing or crying without consciously knowing it? Smith is a superb author that gives it all to fulfill your expectations and more. Exactly just like Jon did.

    The story is pretty good, but I know 10th graders with better grammar. Please, please, please get a better proofreader. It detracts from the story itself when your grammar is consistently bad. It took me out of the story multiple times when I noticed your grammar mistakes.

    Awesome book. Couldn’t wait to read the next page. Definitely one you can’t put down.

    Space tactics, politics, space ships, and even what happens to humanity post-Earth, this is an amazing book. But I disliked two things: Too much of the romance. I know only like 40 total pages in a 435 pg book is too little for some, but for me it just distracted from the, in my opinion, quality content.

    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.
