I've heard recommendations about this series for some time now amongst different groups I am part of online. I figured why not, let me check out book one and see if I like it too.
I'm glad I did!
This book is one of the few books thus far that covers realistic physics-based combat in space, specifically accounting for the fast distances that ships would necessarily have to travel and fight in. It's fascinating and well worth the read. The characters themselves are decently written, and a few surprises await the reader.
WELL worth the read! Excuse me, I'm on my way to get the next one in the series. :)
