    Sword gives weight to the dictum, You get what you pay for Since it cost nothing, that pretty well describes its worth.Sophomoric plot, cardboard characterization and high school story telling Made through the first half Neither believed in nor cared about the heroes Not a good read A waste of time.

    There were parts of this that were pretty good, and others that make me question what I was reading Overall, I would say this sci fi offering was just okay First, the good the author has a nice outline of a story here that is classic Star Wars with the rebellion against the dark side Typical good vs evil, but this time with a religious fanaticism that does strain the believability a bit Even better is I picked this one up for free during a Kindle promotion.Next, the not so good the battl There were parts of this that were pretty good, and others that make me question what I was reading Overall, I would say this sci fi offering was just okay First, the good the author has a nice outline of a story here that is classic Star Wars with the rebellion against the dark side Typical good vs evil, but this time with a religious fanaticism that does strain the believability a bit Even better is I picked this one up for free during a Kindle promotion.Next, the not so good the battle scenes are not very detailed, but somehow we are supposed to believe in each and every battle a vastly outnumbered force in terms of sheer numbers and technology will win each and every battle None of the good guy main characters ever die or lose, and the bad guys always lose The ending, without having a spoiler, was a little strange and while the obvious intent is to get you to purchase the sequel there just wasn t enough there to make me want to go and buy the sequel

    Simply awful.Why authors with the scientific knowledge of a 6th grader insist on writing science fiction is beyond me.Within the first 20 pages, we have repeated juxtaposition of descriptions of the area where the events take place the Nine Systems and references to the entire universe and the known universe It doesn t bode well for a science fiction book when, after only a few pages, the author demonstrates his ignorance of the difference between solar systems, galaxies, and the univers Simply awful.Why authors with the scientific knowledge of a 6th grader insist on writing science fiction is beyond me.Within the first 20 pages, we have repeated juxtaposition of descriptions of the area where the events take place the Nine Systems and references to the entire universe and the known universe It doesn t bode well for a science fiction book when, after only a few pages, the author demonstrates his ignorance of the difference between solar systems, galaxies, and the universe We find spaceships that are large enough to hold hundreds landing on planetary surfaces These ships blast off from the planets using fission drives producing some undescribed thrust which then within minutes send the ship to deep space where they engage their fusion drives which, in some undescribed manner, send the ships into hyperspace and to the other star systems in the story within a couple of hours Yet after thousands of years using such magical propulsion systems there are only 9 systems We see our heroes on their wondrous ships, after they have arrived at a planet occupied by the enemy, manage to hide in low orbit But nothing beats how one of our heroes while opening the ship s hatches to release their shuttle boats after hiding his ship in orbit, drops this little gem They might pick up some noise down on the surface, he said worriedly Simply amazing.Of course, scientific knowledge isn t the only thing the author lacks For example, we learn that 100% of the food raised to support the billions of people on the planets of all nine systems is grown on only one of the planets in one of the nine systems This is both economically and logistically absurd.Naturally, much of the book is what you might call military science fiction But by this time you shouldn t be surprised that the author has no clue how militaries operate, how they are organized, or how they plan and conduct operations He apparently thinks that admirals and captains just make it up as they go along there is no such thing as strategic, operational, or tactical planning.Of course, all of that is simply the backdrop to the story In and of itself, this backdrop would have caused me to throw a paper book across the room after reading less than a quarter of it But the character development, story, dialogue, and writing style are equally poor.One reviewer thought this book might be suitable for teens I disagree Even a teen would find the book juvenile

    Yeah I got halfway through and ust did not want to read any, The problem was the scenes where to short, one planet was completly taken over with no explanation how, and although i liked how they took over the food planet interestingly I just could not bring myself to finish it,

    Was looking for some sci fi to read, and I stumbled across this in the free section of kindle books I got about 1 3 of the way through when I realized that thus far the plot had been a string of deus ex machina events Can t recommend it.
