    "Taylor is the name. John Taylor...My card says I'm a detective, but what I really am is an expert on finding things. It's part of the Gift I was born with as a child of the Nightside - the hidden heart of London where it's always three a.m., where inhuman creatures and otherworldly gods walk side-by-side in the endless darkness of the soul. Assignment: Joanna Barrett hires me to track down her teenage daughter, who decided to forgo the circus and run away to the Nightside."

    Angela says: "The Nightside"
    "Urban fantasy a la film noir"
    Overall

    Wild characters, wild premise, wild ride. Philip Marlow meets Clive Barker. The first person storytelling and vivid characters keep the story racing along. Tongue in cheek references from Tolkien to Asimov. Good beginning.

    With Earth in the path of the rapacious Posleen, the Galactic Federation offers help to the backward humans - for a price. You can protect yourself from your enemies, but God save you from your allies!

    Matthew says: "surprised and delighted"
    "Ring a ding dingo!"
    Overall

    Well told suspenseful classic combat sci-fi. The first in an epic series. Ringo knows his military jargon first hand. This is the juice. A+

    Union laborer Rohr Furland begrudgingly takes a job on a space freighter piloted by Captain Future, an immature and slightly crazed captain with an obsession for early 20th-century science-fiction novels. When they receive a distress call from a nearby space station, Furland and the first officer blend the dangers of reality into the captain's fantasy world.

    Glenn says: "Melodramatic Fun"
    "Hilarious send-up"
    Overall

    Great fun.

    War is forever. The people on Earth no longer remember how the human race was nearly obliterated centuries earlier during the terror visited upon them by the merciless Xul. But the Star Marines, 30,000 light years from home, know all too well the horror that still lives.

    crazybatcow says: "What's up with the politics?"
    "the saga continues.."
    Overall

    Satisfyingly spectacular raising of the stakes from the first novel with the appearance of the Dyson sphere. Like the first book, very vivid combat sci-fi with a cast of dozens. The dronelike impersonality of the hegemonic aliens mitigates any guilt the reader may feel about the vicious pasting that they receive at the hands of the marines....

    Like so many others, Ramón Espejo ran from the poverty and hopelessness of the Third World to the promise of a new world, joining a host of like-minded workers and dreamers aboard one of the great starships of the mysterious, repulsive Enye. But the life he found on the far-off planet of São Paulo was no better than the one he had abandoned.

    Richard says: "Different but good"
    "Good sci-fi"
    Overall

    Combining the best elements of a human story with the cool effects of sci fi, this is a good example of a story that goes beyond being just another space romp. Great characters and a cool plot twist are worth mentioning.

    Expelled from the Union Astronautica space fleet and facing charges of grand theft, Jules Truffant agrees to sign up as shuttle pilot aboard the freighter Pride of Cucamonga in exchange for amnesty. After botching Pride's mission to RhoCorenae and upsetting an alien culture in the process, Jules must take part in a voyage across the galaxy to place a probe squarely in the path of a black hole as it plows through an inhabited star system.

    Peter says: "Irreverent take on sci fi staples"

    Tongue in cheek but a lot of fun.
    Story moves along and has a number of cool surprises. The characters are also very vivid. Liked this.

    Planet by planet, galaxy by galaxy, the inhabited universe has fallen to the alien Xul. Now only one obstacle stands between them and total domination: the warriors of a resilient race the world-devourers nearly annihilated centuries ago.

    Lawrence says: "Good Sci Fi Detail and excellent story"
    "Amazingly detailed"
    Overall

    Incredible detail and suspenseful narration are what distinguish this long novel of space warfare and strategy. Cool Borg-like aliens also.
