    This is an interesting series I don t know how far this series can go, but it s off to a pretty good start Now, the premise behind the initial book, Behemoth , is that Earth has already been attacked and almost defeated by an unknown alien race bent on the destruction of humanity The Behemoth was immediately built with the aid of friendly allied aliens right after that struggle It is a massive ship meant to defend the entire solar system if and when the aliens return A single ship expected to protect the entire solar system I think not Anyway, the stupid aliens seem to only send two ships at a time to attack Earth Actually, these aliens were attacking another alien ship that was fast fleeing them and this alien ship lead the bad guys straight to the Solar System The Behemoth manages to rescue the fleeting ship and finds a weapon system or firing method called Protocol Seven which allows them to destroy the bad guys relatively easily Now they must get this new protocol to the rest of the alliance, but they just can t transmit via usual communication methods.So, here comes two ships from the alliance ready to help the humans and obtain Protocol Seven They volunteer to leave one ship to defend Earth the Solar System while the other ship and the Behemoth go to a secret research facility hidden deep within the Kielan s territory This should be a milk run mission for the Behemoth It doesn t turn out that way, of course.The writing is pretty good in th...

    Overall good bookI think the story is good A good base for sci fi genre There were a few grammatical errors, and the story bogged a little when going over Clea life decisions early on, but this is a book I would read again and again.

    Aliens and Space combatLoved the characters the tactics the reversal.The reveal about the big bad seems s little allegorical Could use less jingoism and science

    Childish But if you are a child, that doesn t matter Characters are still tissue thin Conflict, so much of the book, is nonsensical.
