    I'm so disappointed in this book I usually love stories by SE Smith but this one didn't really seem as much of a romance as it was a science fiction novel Sure there were a couple of sexy scenes thrown in but that's what it felt like they were 'thrown in' to ensure this would be considered romance I didn't feel the chemistry between the main characters Josh and Cassa There was this one point and I'm not sure it's because Josh realized he was never going back to Earth but Josh tells Cassa that he wants her forever However it wasn't until way AFTER that point that he realizes that he loves her Now ladies and gentlemen as a connoisseur of romance novels I feel that the acknowledgement of LOVE precipitates the declaration of being together FOREVER Now it just feels that he is set on 'settling' for Cassa because he can't go back home to Earth and he realizes that he needs to have someone to help him navigate this new world for him to survive instead of finding love and exciting that he's going to have his mate with him while he navigates this new world Also the story started off real well but then I got lost in all the action All that part kinda turned me off and I actually skipped sections to figure out what happened in the end And the sad thing i that skipping these parts I don't feel like I lost the gist of the storyline It looks like this is going to be a series with the this first book about Lieutenant Commander Joshua Manson Captain of the Gliese Mission It looks like the person getting the next book is about Lieutenant Commander Ashton Haze Gliese Pilot Then I'm sure we'll see Julia Marksdale Mission Specialist NavigationContact Support Dr Mei Li Hú Mission Specialist Computer ScienceBiologyEnvironmental Systems and Sergi Lazaroff Mission Specialist Mechanical EngineeringPayloadWeapons Hopefully the next books won't be as disappointing as this first book but I'm definitely going to be reluctant to shell out 4 per book if the story was as week as this one

    First I want to say I want to continue to read the series Okay this wasn't the typical type of book MS Smith writes but it wasn't bad either It was a little hard to get into Every other book of hers grabbed me on the first page This book didnt It never grabbed my interest until the fourth and fifth chapters The foundation though it was needed took too long I never saw or read Star Wars so I cant make a comparison with it The action was almost non stop once you got to the fifth chapter At times the action was hard to picture or just didn't make sense I also couldnt picture the main characters as lovers The sparks just weren't there

    I listened to this audio with RU I like most of SE Smith's books but this was a miss for me An object has been spotted in space Five people are sent to investigate the object that turns out to be a series of rings So I thought this was going to be a Stargate story The ship gets sucked into the gates and thrown into another solar system where people already speak English Complete with the evil Legion and the rebellious Gallant Order The story turned into Star Wars complete with a visit to a funky alien bar on a desert planet to a secret rebel base on an ice planet I didn't feel the romance between the earth Commander Josh and Cassa the budding Gallant Order knight They went from strangers to sex to saying 'I love you' with few tender moments in between They just navigated one dangerous situation after another It was of a space opera than a romance

    I like a good science fiction now and then Some disappoint but some check all the boxes and I’m a happy camper Command Decisions was not great but it was fun Well some of it The setup was fun The human astronauts were cutouts from every other bookmovie but they worked out enough The BeingsAliens they encouraged have been seen before but they were still enjoyable Fighting the good fight with fun cohesive action scenes Yes A female with balls and brains Check A romancewait what?? Smith didn’t have a strong sense of time so they’re connection was out of left field and totally unbelievable Will I read the next book in the series? Yes but it’ll have to wait until I’m in the right mood

    More like a 35 I did like this book It kept me interested I really liked the characters and the adventure was great With all that being said I think it could have been much better if the author would have filled in the missing parts My main issue is how much the book skips forward It's like everything is on fast forward An example of this I hated how mushy gushy the man got when talking about his love interest He knew her for a month but we didn't get any insight into that month at all It's so frustrating Maybe if the author wouldn't have skipped that whole month I could be down with this But seriously They meet then like the next page is a month later and he kisses her for the first time ??? how does the author think that makes sense? At least get me interested in them being a couple There are many examples of stuff like this I understand it's hard to fill in big spaces of time I just feel this book would have been MUCH better if it wouldn't have skipped around so much It may needed to be split up into two books but I would have preferred that Like others have said I got a lot of reminders of Star Wars while reading which was annoying because the similarities are easily avoidable The biggest reminder is the weapon they use It sounds very similar to a lightsaber I even started imagining it as one because it sounds so similar Also the way they sneak onto a ship the droid on the ship the bar they go into etc etc etc


  6. Tony Tony says:

    This book is honestly the worst book I've ever read At some point I only kept going because I was curious how bad it would get and it kept getting worse and worse Stereotyped Asian and Russian characters? Check Incredibly cheesy dialogue from a jock fighter pilot moonlighting as an action hero? Check Black best friend racial trope? Yep Sci fi that is incredible nonsensical that it makes you uestion where the science is? Lets see aliens in far away galaxies that happen to speak English a fighter pilot who happens to be able to fly space ships he's never seen before 5 escape pods that are programmed to find the nearest habitable planet and they somehow all go in different directions just a few of many oddities in this universe Hating on the class nerd like it's high school all over again? Oh yeah Blatant plagiarism from Star Wars? There is that too Delicate woman lead? Yeah Chauvinist male lead who would never hurt a lady? Cliche after cliche Definitely the worst book ever

    Out Of The ParkLoved the story absolutely in love with the characters The science is good and spot on as far as modern technology takes usThe ONLY problem I had and I admit I had to keep putting the book down and grit my teeth is the improper use of the word galaxy instead of star system It's a big difference with a huge distinction especially in sci fi Interstellar travel or travel between stars is capable to any society with a sufficient amount of knowledge and technology Intergalactic travel or travel between galaxies would reuire extensive use of wormholes because of the vast amounts is space involved The space between stars is extremely vast The space between galaxies is stupidly vastI felt this story was plot driven than character driven as in other books by this author in the past however it was excellent in pacing I loved it I would like some explanation later as to why they speak the same language


  8. Erin Erin says:

    So at first I was thinking okay this is cool going to be a 'first explorers in space' type story Then a star gate got mentioned and it made me immediately hesitant But it only called it a star gate once so I got over itNext up at the vineyard on the far off planet Cue me Oh cool This is gonna be like that Farscape episode I ET where Crichton and fellow crew land on an alien planet and Crichton gets his first other world experience and it was like all the classic Aliens have landed type stories from the 1950s I was okay with thisAs soon as the vineyard started burning a niggling little voice in my head said Okay this is a Star Wars trope the her farm has been destroyed and her family is dead so she has nothing left but to go on an adventure and fight the big bad space government tropeAnd then it went down hill from there After that it pretty much ripped off Star Wars A New Hope to a ridiculous level Even so much as at the end Josh even says You just need a hat and you'd look like Harrison Ford Or something like that I've blocked it out a bit and I can't go look as I was listening to the audiobookThen I came and looked at other reviews and yeah totally not just me feeling like the author ripped of Star WarsNow this wasn't awful I'm sure it would have been uite exciting and enjoyable if you've never read there are a lot of books or watched Star Wars beforeI did like that it wasn't the normal SE Smith Alpha male alien needs female I liked how Josh was the alien see above comment of I ETI liked how there was no Little One endearments from the Hero to the Heroine That got really old in the Alliance seriesI almost feel like I should put this on the Star Wars bookshelf lol

    If you want a sci fi story this could be for you but not want I want to read from one of my favourite authorsThough interesting in its own way and with a LOT of action maybe too much it will not be one I reread As much as I love Ms Smith’s books this series is not for me I have deferred reading it for ages knowing it was probably not going to be for me but finally sat down and picked it upI just felt it was fast forward and lots of information overload which is typical of a new series but the lack of romance and connection between Josh and Cassie just made it a poor story It felt like he settled for Cassie once he realised he would never be returning to earth he wasn’t anyway as it was a one way mission as she was the only one he knew not because he loved her That came later


  10. Margie Centner Margie Centner says:

    I read the first three reviews here and can’t believe the bad or mediocre reviews I bought all three published in paperback just because I wanted to get away from the e raeder for a little while I finished the first in less than 24 hours and loved it I have the the third and now wait for the second as it seems to have come from a different seller on and I didn’t realize that I can’t wait for the second to be delivered This story drew me in from the first page and I hardly put it down I have read other books by SE Smith and while I loved a few most were not worth reading Not so with this story It’s not has hard core in the sex as some of her other books I have read but the plot is great and throw in the little romance she did include for the two main characters and I found it to be one of the best books I have read lately
