Publisher's Summary

As the colony grapples with the realization that New Earth is not as uninhabited as they’d once thought, tensions between the colonial settlements rise to new heights, and the Colonial Defense Force finds itself caught in the middle.

When Connor uncovers evidence of a militant colonial faction secretly exploiting the NEIIS, he has to investigate. Connor learns that some of the colonial settlements have been holding back discoveries of their own. He’d thought the NEIIS were a threat to the colony, but he was wrong. They all were, and the truth is beyond anything Connor could have imagined.

Meanwhile, Colonel Sean Quinn’s latest mission brings him off-world to investigate a previously discovered NEIIS settlement. When all communications from home go silent, he must return to New Earth to investigate. Cut off from everything, Sean must lead the crew of a CDF warship against a mysterious foe. Sean must forge a path into the unknown if he’s to have any hope of unraveling the mystery.

Emergence is the sixth book in the best-selling First Colony military space opera series.

Another great book in this series

I've immensely enjoyed this book, and the narration as usual had been outstanding. I've already purchased and downloaded the next {and at this time, last) book available. I'm hoping the author continues with more installments.

Best book so far

The First Colony series has been a great read. I was looking for good space sci-fi while I wait for the next Expeditionary Force book. This book has been the best one so far. I'm really looking forward to the next book and will be here for the full story.

what? it's already done and I have to wait?

Very good continuation of series but a bit rough on the ending. still worth a read, but you might want to await the next book first.

WOW! I love this series

I have been reading the First Colony series from Genesis on. I just finished book seven. In all the books I am eagerly awaiting the next paragraph. Mr. Ken Lozito is an incredible author and I am so very glad that he bailed on the IT security gig. His art is writing. God has blessed this man with a wife and children but also with the ability to take the reader away in an awesome journey. I believe that Mr. Lozito will be writing for many many years and I look forward to the next book.

Stretched thin, but still enjoyable

TLDR; For the length, this felt a bit busy and thin. You're basically following multiple stories/perspectives at once, which is fine, but done here it felt like each story was underdeveloped. Still a good listen, and I enjoyed it, but more time spent on each story would have been better.

Spoiler Free: The story follows on where the last book left off, You follow the story from Conner's, Sean's, and Dash/The other tech guy's perspectives. It's a fun way to get more story and worked fairly well here, the only problem is that I left each story feeling a bit underdeveloped. It's a good set-up piece and offers major expansions of the "world" the books take place in. I am a little concerned that we're getting a bit too much cast at this point. The characters a distinct, but with the addition of new characters in every book, I'm worried that I'll start needing a guide to keep track of everyone.

Overall, I really enjoyed the book, the setup was good, the narration was good, and the series opened up what we can expect in the future, overall I'm looking forward to starting the next one.

Enjoyable yet lacking

It's a fun book but don't think too hard about the science, dialogue and character interactions because you will become frustrated, just go with it, enjoy the ride and let your own imagination fill in the gaps. Also I am sick of hearing "Internal Heads Up Display" seriously if I never hear Internal Heads Up Display again I'll die in peace. I am enjoying this though and looking forward to the next book.
