  • First Strike

    By C E Campbell
    Fast moving SIFY thriller. Enjoyed the interactions of the characters combined with the futuristic setting. Could have used a final proof read for typos.

    Book moves well. Maybe a bit predictable but overall a pleasant reading experience.
  • 1st of Nine Volumes; kill me now!

    By jboyg
    Yikes, this was a decent read and I found it enjoyable enough to finish. But plow through eight more of them? I think not. Like so many of the authors offering their first books for free the writer seems to suffering an extreme case of sequel-itis, a veritable pandemic in the SF world that I for one would like to see stamped out with extreme prejudice. Still, I thought it was worth three stars on its lonesome.
  • Excellent sci Fi

    By Tam preen
    Read this book at my leisure. Stimulated my imagination, being I believe that we are not the first or only. Also being a former active Marine set my curiosity as to a futuristic Marine Corps. Fast paced believable sci Fi.
