Publisher's Summary

Beyond the confines of our small world, far from the glow of our star, lie a galaxy and universe much larger and more varied than anyone on Earth can possibly imagine. For the new NAC spacecraft Odyssey and her crew, the unimaginable facets of this untouched world are about to become reality.The Odyssey's maiden voyage is an epic adventure destined to make history.

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.

    "Great start to an exciting series..."

    The book exceeded my expectations. They narrator kept the story interesting. I also liked how the writer did not overdo the explanation between the storyline.
    Looking forward to the next book in the upcoming series.

    Story
    "no idea how navies work"

    if this man has ever been in sight of a warship I'll apologize. however I'm certain he has no clue how any military works, and that makes this painful to listen to or read. if you've served , don't bother with this book, it'll make you cringe. I couldn't even pay attention to the story for all bs his characters were spewing.

    "Simply brilliant and entertaining!"

    The story is amazing and the narrator perfectly skilled in telling it. Already purchased the next book and will begin listening as soon as I finish writing this.

    "Finally, a story where the good guys can kick ass"

    Out gunned and in some ways out matched, still, our team isn't doing too bad. Stir story contains interesting science, well written battles and decent but not overwhelming character development.

    "Good start"

    The story progressed naturally and wonderfully - then the battles started... And didn't stop. I wished there was more dialogue between the Earth vessel and the colonials but I suppose that might be coming up in the next book. The reading and presentation was clear and wonderfully recorded.

    "okay"

    it was an okay listen. I didnt like the incorrect terminology for weapons. IRS a magazine not a clip. this is a turn off for military.

    Story
    "unlistenable"
    What disappointed you about Into the Black?

    To be fair here, maybe it is a great story. Perhaps it's one of the best books ever. However, it didn't go anywhere fast enough and the narrator made it nearly impossible to listen to as he sounded like my high school economics teacher...that is, absolutely monotone and epically boring.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Evan Currie again?

    If it were narrated by someone else, sure.

    Story
    "Good but not great"

    Don't get me wrong, this series isn't a disaster or anything. I will probably give the second book a try.
    Pros:
    - good action/suspense
    - decent plot concept. Pretty tricky to make inferior technology plausibly relevant, and this is handled reasonably well
    - military aspects are fine,
    Cons:
    - Writing isn't all that great
    - Science is a bit rough. Seems like he may have had to play a bit fast and loose with some numbers to make the plot concept work.

    "Took a chance and really enjoyed it"

    I had never looked into this series before, but decided to try it out on a whim. I really enjoyed the first one and am downloading the second immediately.

    "Just couldn't finish"
    Any additional comments?

    I know this has received a bunch of good reviews, but this book just wasn't for me. I couldn't get past the inconsistencies throughout the book. For example... so it's their first step into deep space and they happen to run across some aliens that look like humans and speak a form of French? Not likely. The author also tries to just translate Navy equipment into space. He even refers to the fighters as planes. I tried listening to this twice and just couldn't get through it. Time to move on.
