Overview

Seeds of Earth by Michael Cobley

Merciless. Relentless. Unstoppable.

The first intelligent species to encounter mankind attacked without warning. Merciless. Relentless. Unstoppable. With little hope of halting the invasion, Earth's last roll of the dice was to dispatch three colony ships, seeds of Earth, to different parts of the galaxy. The human race would live on ... somewhere.
150 years later, the planet Darien hosts a thriving human settlement, which enjoys a peaceful relationship with an indigenous race, the scholarly Uvovo. But there are secrets buried on Darien's forest moon. Secrets that go back to an apocalyptic battle fought between ancient races at the dawn of galactic civilization. Unknown to its colonists, Darien is about to become the focus of an intergalactic power struggle where the true stakes are beyond their comprehension. And what choices will the Uvovo make when their true nature is revealed and the skies grow dark with the enemy?

The author takes an original approach to humanity's future, but occasionally falls into techni- babble. I felt I needed a thesaurus to follow parts. The storytelling is at its best when the action begins and the pace of the plot picks up. I found much merit to the writing: indeed, I finished the series. The series held my interest despite the depth and challenges of its vocabulary. The author would be well advised to slow down and better explain some of the science. Suspension of skepticism and leaps of faith are best taken in small doses

Original plot utilization of AI and a richly layered galactic history provides context for the well developed characters' intrigues to flourish while in an impressively erudite and intoxicatingly visual style. It's one of the best sci-fi series I've read in recent years, and will be near the top of my recommendation list for this genre. Read the whole series.

Although the plot seemed to be interesting, there were far to many subplots and characters to follow. I found it hard to get through most of the extraneous dialogue between the actual action that flowed along the main plot line

Characters ill defined, story line all over the place, worst read in long time

Just pay for the series, or at least the second book. The first one is interesting, with a good premise, interesting characters, satisfying complexity, and has done a good job of holding my interest. Unfortunately it did not draw to any sort of reasonable conclusion. It is a cliffhanger in the classic sense: tune in next book to find out what happens. Plan the purchase now.

You get immerced into ... well more than just a world or even a galaxy. Politics, deceit, worlds, cultures, religion, and all nicely comming together. Even with the multitude of characters and story lines, you somehow never end up lost.

Imaginative worlds, people, and machines make for a great story. Wonderful sci-fi at its best.

If you like sci fi then this book will do it for you. The dtory has so many interesting plot suprises that it keeps you deeply submerged and wanting to read more. The whole trilogy is well layed out and keeps you interested. The books are also well written.

A real hard read. Not a page turner for me.

Too many subplots and techi-words. Should have been several books instead of just one.  Some of the subplots were well written and others seemed lost. Did one author really write the entire book??
