This was a first reads that I won. Overall I really enjoyed the book as it was a very engaging read. I honestly didn't want to stop reading it. The story line I felt was a little predictable at times but it worked well with the book, which I think helped to make the book even better. It takes a great writer to pull off something that is similarly done so often. And by similar I mean humans and deep space travel encountering aliens.
The only thing that I didn't like about the book was the grammat This was a first reads that I won. The only thing that I didn't like about the book was the grammatical errors. I know I'm not the best editor in the world but I do feel like it takes something away from a book that has errors. But like I said I really enjoyed the book and will continue with the series. Started with a sample of this book series.
Got my interest immediately. Read the book and had to get book two. Started right away Jul 27, Christopher rated it did not like it. Ho boy. I couldn't decide whether to give this book 1 or 2 stars; in the end I'd give it 1. Structurally the book suffers painfully - the Narrator drops exposition in the middle of dialog "So you actually turned on your DAT Data Acquisition Terminal this semester" , and will answer questions within the narration in a way I can only describe as spontaneously fourth wall breaking "His instincts were correct and he was about to find out what that plan was" Ho boy.

This book suffers from a serious case of "Tell, Don't Show". As I read I could pick out plenty of more places where exposition could have been inserted more naturally, if this book had gone through an editor. The protagonist I found deeply dislikable; he rarely suffers for his flaws and is frequently rewarded for them. The narration even takes it's time to point out how correct he is in his assumptions all the time. I felt no tension from this story. I never felt like the protagonists were in any danger at any point or at any real risk of any kind of real loss.
Hard pass. May 25, Shadrach rated it really liked it. I just finished the entire series as currently published and thought they got better and better as they went.
The End Times
You can tell the author is a new writer but he should definitely continue to publish. Character dev is pretty good and the storyline is pretty good.
Lots of potential in the universe the author has developed. It wasn't one of the best series I have read but definitely better than many I have read. Rating details. More filters. Sort order. May 23, Leif Dolan rated it it was amazing. The Rise I used a lot of time reading this book. More time as it grabbed me and made me want to have the Phoenix win everything! The end falls hard but you can feel the coming rise. Mar 08, Per Gunnar rated it it was amazing Shelves: 2-military , 1-science-fiction.
Great book. I was worried both by the title and the fact that the previous one more or less ended with a despicable spy lurking around, as well as having teamed up with that bloody annoying engineering professor, that this book would end up in nothing but internal strife and nonsens. Luckily it didn't. Well, there was a bit of that but I quite liked the way this part was done and, especially, how it was resolved. Obviously I can't really go into any details without spoiling the book so The over Great book. The overall mix of space exploration, fighting the baddies and a mystery here and there makes for a quite enjoyable read.
I hope the author keeps it up. Mar 17, John rated it really liked it. Very good addition to the series. Things get much more personal in the third book. The story continues with the captain and crew meeting more races and helping them out of their issues with the Screen. I enjoyed many of the aliens and thought they added to a much deeper story. The personal aspects that come up are pretty rough and left me a bit sad overall. I am still ticked off about Alex'sis, that was way to sad for me Apr 04, Daryl Suen rated it really liked it.
Typically, I look for science fiction that includes deeper scientific explanation for the aliens and technologies that appear in the stories. I found Stadnik's Phoenix books to be very Star Trek-like in nature, but I didn't find this to be a negative thing like most sci-fi fans, Star Trek was an important influence on me. I really enjoyed this series and eagerly await the fourth book.
