Probably not. The story and series plot line is great. I will complete the series because I want to see how it ends. But the writing is inconsistent. The main character continually forgets things that occurred only moments before. For example, in one section he receives an email saying someone is coming to talk to him. The person shows up and he is completely surprised. Its as if sections were written at different times and then assembled without checking for consistency. Another example, a certain ship is destroyed. That ship shows up as completely intact and unharmed in the next book.
Plus the main character is inconsistent and from any practical perspective an idiot. He does everything on his own and believes he is the only one who can save the world. The fact that he does though, seems to be almost by accident. Every once in a while he even throws a temper tantrum. But believe it or not, he is still likable.
The narration is passable, but too melodramatic. One moment you're getting a blow by blow description of battle and the next a swarmy description of the universe and the future. Then the next chapter begins. It's disconcerting but not unbearable. Bottom line I'm hooked even with all these issues. Not sure I'd recommend to another though.
