I've listened to the 3 books in this series. I felt that the series could have been done in 2 books, maximum, but was dragged out to make it into three books. There is a lot of repetition and exposition in book 3 that is simply not needed. Other than this complaint, the story line was interesting and fairly well developed although not in a great deal of detail. Overall, I enjoyed the series until I reached the 3rd book which as I mentioned drags.
condensed the series into 2 longer books
I will start by saying I am not a fan of fantasy and never have been, I decided to give this book a shot since it was a mixture of hard science and fantasy. It did not work for me. I simply could not ever stop thinking the fantasy parts were unbelievable. I did listen to the whole book and ....as I said it is just not for me. I had just finished listening to The Martian which I loved and thought was excellent. To me, the hard science in The Martian was what made the book so good, and The Daedalus Incident suffered in comparison. If you like fantasy, I could see liking this story. For me it was an interesting experiment which failed.
none, didn't like the book
