    This review will be for the complete first three book arc of this series. This novel reminded me a lot of the Jack Campbell Lost Fleet series as there was lots of space battles with ship to ship action. In this series, humans are fighting multiple alien species and not other human groups and for the most part are behind them technologically but the author makes up for this in the tenaciousness of the human fighting spirit. The author also does a pretty good job in fleshing out the multiple main characters and well as building a nice universe to tell the tale in.

    I really enjoyed this who series and look forward to reading more in the followup series. 4 stars for a fun read. Recommended for any fan of space navy military sci-fi.

    Light relief in what was to be the final in the 'Star Carrier' trilogy installment by military SF writer Ian Douglas (actually William H Keith). Douglas continues his tale of American exceptionalism and manifest destiny, as the North Americans show the appeasing European surrender monkeys and inscrutable Chinese a thing or two about taking the fight to the advanced alien races of unpronounceable names (Sh'daar' this time).
    It is a good enough page turner, but the resolution a little on the convenient side. Perhaps a sign that his opus was wrapped up in a single trilogy, rather than the trilogy of same in it's space marines predecessor.

    ETA - Not so fast, a fourth, fifth and sixth installment have now appeared!

    This was the last book in the Star Carrier series. While story was full of tactics and space battles, the resolution to the central conflict of the book, man merging to be one with his technology, was a little bit unsatisfying.

    Singularity picks up right where book two ended, and continues in an even faster pace of events. Perhaps a bit too fast. Where I found the first two books very enjoyable, realistic (characters, mechanisms, functions - in a sci fi universe) and captivating this third volume didn't really do well for me.Don't get me wrong, it is a nice quick read and enjoyable in its own right. It just feels, well, not up to the level set by the first two books. There are strange scenes that are almost hilarious in terms of how unrealistic some steps in the scenes are. I am sure this is a matter of personal taste, perhaps I looked forward too much to this book and had expected more evolution of characters and a more balanced choice of mechanisms.
