    Story

    The date is 1970 of the Galactic Era, almost 3,000 from now, and the Republic, created by the human race but not yet dominated by it, finds itself in an all-out war against the Teroni Federation, an alliance of races that resent Man's growing military and economic power. The rebel starship, the Theodore Roosevelt, under the command of Wilson Cole, is preparing to lead Cole's ragtag armada into the Republic, even though he is outnumbered thousands to one.

    Nice to revisit Wilson Cole and the crew of the TR. The story is just not a compelling as the previous.

    Story

    For Oxford student Kivrin, traveling back to the 14th century is more than the culmination of her studies - it's the chance for a wonderful adventure. For Dunworthy, her mentor, it is cause for intense worry about the thousands of things that could go wrong.

    Owl says: "Timely, beautiful, terrible and haunting"
    "The Middle Ages"
    Overall

    Great story and narrator, but pretty depressing in parts. Willis' humor shines, but it hard to make happy times in 1300s.

    Story

    In the 21st century, the perfection of faster-than-light travel and the rise of a prodigious artificial intelligence known as the Eschaton altered the course of humankind. New civilizations were founded across the vastness of space. Now, the technology-eschewing world known as the New Republic is besieged by an alien information plague. Earth quickly sends a battle fleet - but is it coming to the rescue, or is a sinister plot in motion?

    Paula Ross says: "A unique blend"
    "Good but confusing"
    Overall

    The plot is a bit weak, but there is so much hard scifi that you can overlook the pauses in the plot. Of course the narrator makes the story move along faster than it perhaps was written. The transitions between story lines are the most confusing, but the chapters aren't too long so you can get back into the more exciting story lines quickly. It refreshing to hear a story that takes place in other than the USA.
