    Webmind is an emerging consciousness that has befriended Caitlin Decter and grown eager to learn about her world. But Webmind has also come to the attention of WATCH - the secret government agency that monitors the Internet for any threat to the United States - and they're fully aware of Caitlin's involvement in its awakening.

    "This is SciFi?"
    Overall

    This book has a lot of problems. The characters are really flat, the narration, and finally it is more about an annoying 16 year old girl then the emergent intelligence.

    Think about this as a look into a 16 year old girls life with all the OMGs you could ever want with bad science and wedged somewhere in there is an AI that is learning from... Yeah the 16 year old girl and her parents...

    Captain Eric Weston and his crew encounter horrors, wonders, monsters, and people; all of which will test their resolve, challenge their abilities, and put in sharp relief what is necessary to be a hero. A first-rate military-science-fiction epic that combines old-school space opera and modern storytelling, Into the Black: Odyssey One is a riveting, exhilarating adventure with vivid details, rich mythology, and relentless pacing.

    C. Hartmann says: "Great, Solid Military SciFi / Evolving Space Opera"

    There is a milestone in the evolution of every sentient race, a Tech Singularity Event, when the species achieves transcendence through its technological advances. Now the creatures known as humans are near this momentous turning point. But an armed threat is approaching from deepest space, determined to prevent humankind from crossing over that boundary - by total annihilation if necessary.

    Story

    This looks like the beginning of a great series. The physics, units, and ideas are well thought out. The main characters are intelligent and likable. This book does drag while it sets up the entire series. I listened to this book while doing a lot of driving this last weekend and even though I was tired at times it helped to keep me awake.

    Note:
    The description of the book is a little bit misleading and is probably better suited for the entire series even though only the rest of the books can verify that.

    Earth has managed to recapture the Sol system from their Horvath conquerors and has begun entering the galactic millieu. But when the Rangora Empire rapidly crushes humanity's only ally, it becomes clear the war is just beginning....

    Colin says: "another great story, with new characters"
    "Lots of fun"
    Overall

    This book is a just plain fun. If you like the idea of a giant battle station hammering aliens into little pieces than your going to like this. Ringo follows a different set of characters in this book even though characters from the first book continue to drive the story. The change in perspective helps to keep things fresh. I can't wait for the next one in this series.

    Earth is conquered. The Shongairi have arrived in force, and humanity’s cities lie in radioactive ruins. In mere minutes, over half the human race has died. Now Master Sergeant Stephen Buchevsky, who thought he was being rotated home from his latest tour in Afghanistan, finds himself instead prowling the back country of the Balkans, dodging alien patrols and trying to organize the scattered survivors without getting killed.

    Barry says: "Collapses at the finish line"
    "Had a lot of fun listening and guessing..."
    Overall

    I had read the other reviews and had come up with the most insanely stupid plot twists that could make the book horrible... I was close but didn't guess exactly what it was. I did have a moment where I said "REALLY!?!?!"

    The constant jumping around and all the different characters kept me second guessing my self as the where they were talking about and who had done what. This book can be in the middle of a conversation and then it jumps to another conversation.

    Armed camps of eco-survivalists battle purveyors of technology in this exclusive, original production featuring five sci-fi masters and five all-star narrators.

    Karen says: "Fascinating stories"
    "Great SciFi"
    Overall

    The stories really aren't based on the characters. Instead they are driven by the idea that each story is exploring. This book really looks at the future of society and the green movement after humanity moves towards a carbon neutral footprint.
