A captain coming into his own. A handful of refugees stranded on board. A possible traitor in their midst. A voyage into the territory of the very enemy that pursues them. Sometimes legends become realities in unexpected ways. It seems that fate has the crew of the Aurora firmly in its clutches.

I withheld one star because the first three volumes should really be only one. The publisher's decision to break each major 8-hr episode into separate volumes seems to be a common revenue generation scheme. This is frustrating to the reader/listener.
Neither the science nor the military action is strong, the characters are interesting. Again, a little more character development would be good.
Having said all that, I find myself addicted and keep downloading the next installment as I approach the conclusion of the last.
One of the things I appreciate the most is the absence, so far at least, of overly obnoxious contra-characters and frustrating politicians. However, Cameron seems to be a constant irritant who cannot be assuaged. I hope that the final events of this 3rd episode correct her unrealistically implacable role. However, I worry that as with Joseph Campbell, Orson Scott Card and too many other male writers, she will continue to be the bitter ally/enemy or male hero-worshipper that seem to speak to the author's prejudice that delimits the roles of strong women.
Fantasy Novels 4 Life
yes i like series

Story continues on from the first two "so called" books. I would rather call these books "Parts" 1 2 and 3 of one book. Sad to say they are not Worth the expenditure of a credit each or the cash of purchase seeing as they are so curtailed as to be rediculous.
Leg of Cor is a great read. Unlike Rings of Haven which was dull and desperate, LoC takes you back to what Aurora was all about: excitement, friendship, and legends. Nathan Scott makes you want to root for him, and every member of his crew that he loses you feel the pain with him. But Ryk doesn't just make you love Nathan and the crew, he makes you respect them as well. This series is starting to come into a realm of its own. It's no longer a Star Trek copy and is quickly becoming it's own tale.
