Description

A world recovering from a devastating plague. A brutal enemy threatening invasion. A young man seeking to escape the shadow of his father. A ship manned by a crew of fresh academy graduates. A top secret experimental propulsion system. A questionable alliance with a mysterious green-eyed woman.

What destiny has in store for the crew of the UES Aurora is far greater than any of them could ever imagine. And this is only the beginning...

    Entertaining SF, not the big complex would building, but down to earth action. Definitely will pick up the sequel.

    Ender's game anyone?Of course, not nearly as well written. Bad boy (who is chronologically mature, but written like a teenager) who turns out to be just enough of a rebel that he makes an outstanding leader (i.e. can save the world by thinking outside the box while everyone else (mostly females) are still arguing over what they should do).If women weren't needed for the males in this story to oogle and have sex (or think about having sex) with, there'd be no women at all in this story. Or... maybe a more accurate analogy would be a Star Trek episode where Wesley Crusher becomes captain at age 14 but has Kirk's libido. Yes, that sums up the "child-prodigy with chip on his shoulder + let's drool over how hot all the women are in their tight uniforms" tone.And, other than that... it's a standard, unoriginal sci-fi story that feels like it stole its storyline from a hodgepodge of nearly all the classic sci-fi books written by good authors... minus the part that includes good writing. (i.e. space battles won by dint of boy (err, I mean man) being super talented and lucky, space ships with new tech being sent off on maiden voyage, transluminal spaceship flight to uncharted areas of space, first contact with another planet's inhabitants, etc).And the farther I get into it, the worse it becomes. I think I read somewhere that this is a first novel... and I hope that is true, because it certainly sounds like a newbie wrote this, fresh after watching a 4 day Star Trek marathon on the Space channel.It's the unoriginal storyline and tell-not-show approach that makes this story un-enjoyable. (Oh, and the author jumps from inside one character's thoughts to inside another characters thoughts without any pauses- so we get to see this unoriginal story from everyone's point of view.). Unfortunately, I have the next book in the series already, but I won't be reading it.

    I am starting to understand the third one better now. I enjoyed that one more than this one, but I can see the potential in the series in this one. Looks like I need to move on to the second to fill in the gaps and see if the writing is better. I am hopeful about the rest of the series.

    This reads like fan fiction. It ends with little resolution.
