Publisher's Summary

When called to do battle many light years from home, the first Marine Interstellar Expeditionary Unit rose to the challenge - and now thousands of enslaved humans have been freed from the alien yoke. But Earth is 21 years older than the home planet they originally left, and the Marines need time to retrain and readjust - time they do not have, due to the bizzare disappearance of a detachment of their brothers- and sisters-in-arms. It is a mystery, but there is a starting point: an ancient wormhole threading through the Sirius system. Whatever waits on the other side must be confronted, with stealth, with force, and without fear - be it an ancient enemy or a devastating new threat.

The Marines are heading into the perilous unknown...and what transpires there could reshape the universe for millennia to come.

fast paced and interesting take on ancient aliens

Tight military centered, action. Veterans will be able to relate to the portrayal of corporate executives and civilians. The story ties together many ancient alien astronaut legends in an entertaining way.

Love it a great read

I love this book and all the others. I have to place this book series in the top 5 for space operas. I especially like how he was able to tie things in with ancient times and make it rather believe and not to far fetched. Keep them coming please.

Tried it but

What did you like best about Battlespace? What did you like least?

I tried the first two books and wanted it to be good. I was turned off by the constant mentions of weird comments about religion and very little action. Reader was okay but only one voice. I finally got bored.

Would you recommend Battlespace to your friends? Why or why not?

No just not my type of scifi book.

What aspect of David Drummond’s performance would you have changed?

Using several voices would be good.

Did Battlespace inspire you to do anything?

no
