Absolutely the best! (hint, start with Episode 1 of PART 2)
Reviewed in the United States on April 17, 2022
I was bored. Looking for something better to read. I wasn't sure I would like a space saga, but I knew that I was getting frustrated with so many adventure books being about some ultra-macho-male that "was never good with the ladies" yet woos and beds any of them in sniffing distance because they can't resist him - blah blah blah. Maybe if they could find a way to make that part interesting... nah. It's just boring nonsense. And the typical protagonist that is always the most bad-ass, king of all fighters that ever existed, also bores me. I wanted intrigue and action, but something that made you try to guess who the bad guy(s) was and what was their motivation (like the Holmes, Poirot, Quatermain, etc. books).
Anyway, I decided to try this one (in 2016)- but I made a mistake; I bought the first episode of the second part of the series (it was in the suggestions list and it said episode #1, so...). After finishing this episode, I realized the mistake and continued from the first episode of the first part. Now, after having read this full collection about 8 times now (yes, it's THAT good!), I recommend to prospective readers that they, too, start with Ep1 of Part 2.
Why? Well, I think there is a good reason that the first 3 episodes of part 1 are bundled together: it isn't until the end of episode 3 that many of the main characters have really joined the story (with MANY more great characters to come in later episodes). It takes a little bit for the action to really get started in Part 1. But, in Part 2, Ep 1, the action starts off right away, and the characters are already working together with the usual closeness that comes with years of relationships. But, the way Ep 1 rolls out, you barely notice that you missed all that came before it - but make sure to read all of Part 1 after finishing Pt2 Ep1.
The way the author has put together this massive collection of characters is simply amazing. Whenever I'm waiting for the next episode, and I go off to read something else, I find myself longing for the characters of Frontiers Saga. Nothing compares to this.
