    Description

    They had seven years to prepare. Earth is lost.

    Seven years ago the New Earth colony received one final message from Earth...a warning. First a global pandemic, then the emergence of a new species. A war for survival ravaged the Sol system. Now they are coming for the colony.

    Many colonists don't believe it, but Connor does. They must prepare. They must fight. But how can they survive something that killed every person back on Earth?

    OK story, but lacking in military knowledge

    The story itself is pretty straightforward, and not bad. The basic plot, while not particularly original, is fine. The characters are pretty well drawn, and distinctive enough to keep the story interesting.

    The narrator is good, and while I don't care for the voice he chose for one central character, that's more personal preference than a solid critique. He does quite a few different and distinctive voices, and although his feminine voices are a little weak, I'm going to give him a pass on that, since cross-sex voices are really hard (I certainly can't do them).

    My biggest complaint is that the writer doesn't seem to know his material very well, and he makes some choices along the way that will detract from the story if you happen to know anything about the military, or if you have read any naval battle novels written by really good writers.

    For example, no soldier who has ever made it past boot camp would call a sergeant, "sir." You don't say, "yes, sir" to a sergeant, you say, "Yes, sergeant." It's a minor point, but little missteps like this go a long way toward making the story feel "authentic."

    Another example, he uses army ranks in a naval setting, which is discordant and strange. So instead of Admiral, the leader of the navy is a general. Instead of Commodore, it's a squad leader. Instead of Captain, it's colonel or major. It makes the whole thing feel like you are listening to a book written by someone who couldn't be bothered to google "Navy ranks" before he wrote his book.

    Finally, he tells the story exclusively from the perspective of the protagonists, but during the big battle, he keeps them in such a fog of war that you never have a clear picture of what is going on. Did they kill any ships in that engagement? A dozen? A hundred?

    And in that big explosion, did you take out any enemy ships?

    Big battle scenes are described as not much more than "lots of detonations." The result? No clue.

    During the entire battle, most of the time you do not have a clear picture of how many ships you are facing, and even more, how many you have destroyed. So it's not until the very end that you find out any of the details of what happened in the war. And for me, that detracted from the drama and appeal of the story.

    Overall, I'm giving it three stars, which in my book is equivalent to a "C" [5 = A, 4 = B, 3 = C, 2 = D, 1 = Fail].

    "The book was fine" I said.

    "The premise of the book was interesting" I said. "The story it self wasn't to bad" I said. "Character growth was a bit minimalist" I said. "But there was a glaring issue with this book" I said. "Have you guessed the issue yet?" I said.

    Fun but silly

    A good enough adventure but there is no science in the fiction. Sometimes communication takes a while to get from planet to planet and at other times there is a delay. If these kinds of logic failures bother you, this probably isn't for you. They usually aggravate me. Lozito did enough other things well enough to suit my tastes that I was able to enjoy the story. I would not recommend them. If you need a "last of humanity trying to survive on a new world" story, this might scratch the itch. I was fine with the first 3 books in the series, as I got them on sale, but I won't be continuing.
    Narration is good.

    Good story and Decent performance.

    I enjoyed the story but it wasn't one that I couldn't wait until the next chapter. And the performance was okay but not the best depiction of the female characters buy a male actor.

    Conner said. Tobias said.

    Lozito should work on his dialogue skills. We know who said what 90% of the time. The other 10% can be iterated in some other way besides he said she said.

    Solid

    Another solid performance by Scott Aiello and another solid book in the First Colony Series. Ken Lozito takes you on a journey in such a way that you feel like you are part of the story. Now time for book 3!

    not the best but good enough

    Good scifi military book. Not the best I've read. Space combat wasn't what I expected not as much fun as some other space combat books I've read. Story suffers slightly with not understanding the enemy but maybe will get more in future books.

    Amazing start to a series I will be continuing!

    Great character development,
    right away their are characters that your form a attachment too.
    It is well worth reading if you like exciting (semi-futuristic) sci-fi space action with a few twists.
