The overall story is worth reading with some unique ways of tracing the main character's journey from a position of dire danger to a heroin who saves the day. The biggest drawback that I found was the author's apparent fixation on the issue of the main character's sexuality and, to a lesser extent, his tendency to drag out unimportant happenings.

I enjoyed this book very much. It is a good combination of sci-fi and character development. I liked it so much I bought the second installment.

I would've like more character development and a cast I loved but the action and fast pace made up for it. :) Looking forward to the rest of the series!

This is really fun space opera. I've read all 7 of the Galaxy Unknown series and I've been delighted with every one. The characters are refreshing. The plots are filled with interesting tactics. The bad guys are really evil people you love to hate. I love the space battles and the heroines brilliance. I would recommend this book for teens and adults. It's really too bad that B&N doesn't carry this series in Nook format. I also recommend The Lost Fleet series by Jack Campbell.

The only thing I did not enjoy about this book is that it came to the end to soon. Once started I could not put it down. I am looking forward to the rest of the series.

This was my first book by this author, and I couldn't put it down. I compare it favorably to David Weber's "Honnor Harrington" series. I am definately reading more from this series.

I'm a Mlitary Sci-Fi nut and happened to try this book just for something to read. Loved it from the start and hated to see it end. It's an enjoyable read. Just bought the next 2 in the series.

I am now on my fourth book in this series. It offers a great heroine character and interesting fast paced writing. I recommend this book and series to all lovers of Science Fiction and Space Opera.

Certainly a page turner, however it feels as if the author wrote this with a thesaurus near by. The characters all spoke too well. It threw off the flow of the book. I probably wouldnt read it again

The author's protagonist is too perfect almost a cheap rip off of Honor Harington. DePrima is a student of the experience doesn't count school. The military do not promote people for potential and no command officer would put an obvious strategist/tactician in charge of a base when ship commanders are in much need. The author needs to actually study the U.S. Military to better understand a working system of leadership and how it relates to experience. Novel was interesting though DePrima should study the works of Elizabeth Moon, David Weber and John Ringo.

Once started, I had to read it through in one sitting. Great character development, plot and non-stop action from the start.

This is the best book I have read since the Honor Harington series. Once picked up I couldn't put it down until it was finished.

Totally enjoyable. I love a good, strong heroine, one who can think ahead and isn't afraid to mix it up a little. I also like that the author kept his facts straight, like who was in the room or who did what, when, and where. Have read the second in the series, and can't read to read the rest.

It may not be strong competition (yet) for David Weber's "Honor Harrington" series but I thoroughly enjoyed this fun read!

I was a little skeptical at first.  As a fan of the Honor Harrington series by David Weber, I figured this would be just a cheap knock off.  While it does have the underlying Horatio Hornblower feel to it, the story is still it's own.  Unlike Weber, DePrima does not give the reader information overload with respect to the politics and technology of the time.  This series of stories are nice and easy to read and the main character is one that we do care about.  If there is anything that I am critical of, it is that we got to know some of the supporting cast, and then they were gone from her life.  I have also read the second one, and will have to see if that issue continues.
