The book began with usual occassional flashbacks as to be expected, but by page 250, it was obvious that the author was being paid by the word. After having the mechanics of the same weapons system explained to me three seperate times in the same book in graphic detail, I found myself skimming entire PAGES. Predictable ending, and not up to par with the previous two novels in this reader's opinion. Far too many questions left unanswered, unsatisfactory answers to the questions that were haphazardly attempted, and about 2000 words that should have gone to an attempt to write a satisfactory novel (instead of writing to an advance from the publisher) earn this intergalactic starship train wreck of an otherwise fantastic trilogy three stars.

Ian Douglas has really delivered another fantastic military hard science fiction novel. What really amazes me about these books are how they are driven by people, emotion, politics, and engaging stories. The technology is based on real theories (look up Alcubierre drive in Wikipedia) and applications of physics in the military (the impact of light speed on tactics). But the books don't read like a tech manual. Also, the aliens are truly alien - with different ways of thinking that really keep you wondering about what drives them. These are rare feats, and I'm so happy that Ian Douglas can keep them coming. I'm looking forward to whatever he comes up with next.

It's a good story line and I enjoy reading it. The different aliens are creative and well thought-out. The only true complaint I have is the repetition of description. It seemed as though the author didn't realize that certain information had already been covered in this volumn, which I think is important for a person writing a series to keep up with. The information is important and helps the reader, but the constant repetition boggs down the reader and makes a little less enjoyable.

Here is a whole new approach to both galactic archaeology and time travel neatly wrapped up in intergalatic conflict and space combat. Extremely well done?

I have always enjoyed Douglas' writing and this is up to his standards.

Singularity picks up right where book two ended, and continues in an even faster pace of events. Perhaps a bit too fast. Where I found the first two books very enjoyable, realistic (characters, mechanisms, functions - in a sci fi universe) and captivating this third volume didn't really do well for me.Don't get me wrong, it is a nice quick read and enjoyable in its own right. It just feels, well, not up to the level set by the first two books. There are strange scenes that are almost hilarious in terms of how unrealistic some steps in the scenes are. I am sure this is a matter of personal taste, perhaps I looked forward too much to this book and had expected more evolution of characters and a more balanced choice of mechanisms.

Nice continuation of series. Interesting ending that naturally leads to more. Will continue reading the next book.
