Good hard sci-fi space battles..3 star

But we could have done without the anti Islamic sub plot.35

Sixfold I

Earth Strike3 star

Too much time spent on attempting to explain faux science and too little time spent on the story line and character development. Rather boring most of the time. ✌️35


Excellent, Engaging Read5 star

The author pulls together all the elements needed to kick off a rapid page-turning series. Enjoy!55


Hardcore Scifi at It's Best5 star

A credible application of real-world physics to carrier based spacecraft warfare as Navy pilots fight for the survival of the human race against an enigmatic implacable alien foe. The battle rages a lttle too close to home as the enemy attacks the sol system with the intent of exterminating man. The novel re-introduces the concept of the technologic singularity and man's proximity to it as the reason man must die. A worthwile, well-thought, and entertaining read.55
