Publisher's Summary

Delphi Alliance is book five in the best-selling scifi adventure series Delphi in Space.... 

The series follows the McCormacks and their friends as they drag Earth from a backwater world in the galaxy to the forefront of interstellar civilizations. They leverage the technology from the Sakira to build MacKenzie Discoveries into a world-leading technology company and eventually into an interstellar juggernaut.

The McCormacks have their floating city growing in the South Pacific, and their space station well underway. As they continue their quest to unite Earth and bring her into the modern age of space travel and repair her environment before it’s too late, they have to fight with the major powers that aren’t too sure they want to change the status quo.

Now they have discovered an incoming asteroid the size of Ceres. What will it take to unite Earth to deal with this threat to its very existence? And what other threats may be lurking there? Now it’s time to step up, for Delphi and all the nations of Earth.

A Soothing Listen

I really liked this book because of its effect on me at this time.

To be clear, this is not the best or most exciting book ever. BUT, it falls into the same category as the early "Quarter Share" books in that it builds in a way that is not overly glaring but is *satisfying*. In a time when everything around everyone seems to be going to hell, this book paints a picture of people who are getting things accomplished and it's a balm, at least for me.

This sounds like a backhanded compliment, but I mean it sincerely. To have characters create something sci-fi and do it in such a way that you don't get a bunch of "magic goo" type of explanations kicking you out of the story is a skill in itself. Balancing that with just enough political fall out to give the story tension and progression is impressive and Bob Blanton has kept it up for five books so far without dropping a plate. Yes, people are a little too rational, yes the world is idealized and yes some of the technology is convenient. Lightsabers not constantly cutting off body parts also happens but we ignore it.

If you like this kind of story, you will like this. If you don't, you won't. It's really that simple. It gets an A grade from me.

great book

too much details on how stuff works. I was in the us navy and I don't know any commander who would leave a enemy weak and come back for another day let alone come back for multiple days. I love how you can tell it trump without saying it
