The Dark Traveler: Book One by Richard Schulman

One man. Hundreds of secrets. Thousands of lies. Millions of enemies.

The galaxy is truly amazing, filled with adventure and opportunity, unless your life is protecting the Noss and enforcing their five thousand year old treaty with the Kra.
With his back against a wall, the Dark Traveler has ventured into the galaxy after a pseudo-exile drove the man from his homeworld. It is his mission to hold back dark armies intent on destruction. He knows of at least one, but the galaxy is a complicated tapestry of intrigue, violence and insanity. The Dark Traveler must tread alien landscapes in an attempt to contain the madness of war, the savagery of lawlessness, and the darkness of evil magic users. A shadowy path which must be journeyed alone.
Enemies are as plentiful as the secrets that the Traveler keeps, allies are as scarce as the Traveler's rules of combat. Everything can be gained, and everything can be lost. No matter what, the Traveler must keep war from engulfing the galaxy.
354 pages.

Could be a good story, but you need to get it edited bud. Every sentence is 6 rolled into 1.

Made it to page 28 before I just couldn't go fiurther. Not a lot of typo, but sentences go on and on and on and on and on. This was so distracting that I was unable to focus on what I was reading. The author doesn't appear to know how to properly begin and end (especially end) a sentence. Too bad, because the story in itself seems promising.

Overall it a good book. There are parts that still need cleaning up. Pretty choppy reading. The main character needs better modeling as some actions don’t really match the character. Also. Way too much detailed descriptions of mechanicals and stuff. Too wordy and uninteresting. Needs further editing.

Once I stopped trying to make it fit traditional sci-fi I thoroughly enjoyed it. The action is non-stop. The rhythm of the writing matches the main character; intense but slightly deranged.

A very chaotic writing style with poorly developed characters and a uneven storyline.

This book is a good read. The action and it is pretty much Non-Stop and it is quite entertaining.

I will describe this book as a peculiarly good read. The cover is highly unassuming for one. Im a prolific reader and cant say i agree with the editing or run on sentence complaints. I didnt really notice them but wont dispute that they exist. My negatives consist of the blurring of human culture sayings and phyical attributes, as well as earthly weapons in both actual and descriptive terms, such as machine guns, .50 caliber, etc. The use of earth slang and human emotions were predominate in usage which was strange. This was strange because clearly the author had good imagination when describing alien technology or weapons, as well as cultures and customs. I think the author would be better served by either making the main character human or all alien with minimal overlapping, unless of course the protaganist is a hybrid? But i still have to say i liked this read, and i did look forward to getting back to reading it between breaks, so it did what a good book is supposed to and provided enjoyment. So for that, thank you and kudos to the author. Dale M. Baranoski

Easily should have been a 5 star review based on the Sfi-fi story being very solid and well told. However with so much detail being placed on the alien sex life's, I felt like I was reading 50 shades of alien sex.

Kind of reminds me of Rick and Morty, minus morty. Definitely worth a read

I have to confess, I did not finish this story. I couldn't. The amount of run-on sentences was just painful, and consistent throughout the 105 pages that I did read of the 405 page book. I wanted to like the story, even with the poor editing, but the character development was pretty poor, as well.
