Publisher's Summary

War comes home to the Sol system when the Drasin track a human ship back to Earth, with devastating consequences. Facing massive force of invading alien ships wielding terrible power, the crew of the NAC spacecraft, their allies, and the people of Earth must mount a desperate effort to stop them.

Doomed from the start, but with nowhere to retreat, Captain Eric Weston commits his ship to the defense of the human race even as the human outposts in Sol system fall one by one before the unrelenting Drasin onslaught.

A first-rate military science fiction epic that combines old-school space opera and modern storytelling, Homeworld: Odyssey One, the third installment of the Odyssey One Series, continues the exhilarating, hard-pressed action as the Captain Weston faces an overwhelming enemy threatening not just his ship and crew, but the future of Earth as well.

    "A long stretch....."

    I feel the author was lost in how to finish this truly 'against all odds' scenario, so he threw in some fantasy. Confusing, stretched too far and too hard, a sad disappointment.

    Story
    "Man, the last chapter ruined it for me..."
    What did you like best about Homeworld? What did you like least?

    The story has face-paced adventure, but there are some logical issues that creep up from time to time (e.g., how can people who apparently fled from a galactic empire as a space-traveling species with presumably the ability to use stored history not realize that nearly identical ships to the ones they build are from the same galactic empire they fled? How can critters that typically freeze to death floating in space after devouring planets survive floating in space laying in waiting to attack ships?). Oh well. It is science fiction, and I can suspend disbelief. However, the last chapter just did me in with the introduction of a new character that just killed the tension and seems a little too pat to me. I really liked the book, right up to the last 8 minutes or so.


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

    Sure, although I think one would have to really, really like military science fiction to really enjoy the books.


    What about Benjamin L. Darcie’s performance did you like?

    Darcie did a great job in general.


    Do you think Homeworld needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Well, dang. The book ended on a cliffhanger that leaves the entire focus of the story unresolved. Yes, it needs a follow-up book, but I am concerned that it is will take a turn towards the mystical, as opposed to a science fiction structure.

    Story
    "Getting better with each installment"

    Currie's Odyssey One series 3rd installment continues to set a standard for a future universe not too dissimilar from the classic Star Trek. With the recent development of a faster than light drive, Earth has learned that not only is it not alone in the galaxy, but that other "humans" exist, their region of space is a bit crowded, and there are potential enemies to deal with. For #3, Currie brings the story back to Earth as more of the geopolitical tension and it's history (along with more of the backstory of Erik Weston) between the Confederacy and the Block are explored. Earth's location is revealed to both the Priminae as well as the Drasin. In addition, more insight is revealed regarding the Drasin origins that hints at future directions for this continuing saga.

    The sci-fi elements are extensions of past installments with Earth's scientists and engineers continuing to devise ever more cleverer ways to redress the power curve differentials between Earth and everyone else. Currie continues to explore the theme of the Earth as an outlier in terms of its tactical skills and warfare oriented culture as a quality that begins to worry the rest of their galactic neighbors. Finally, Currie leaves the listener anticipating #4.

    The narration remains simply superb with an excellent range of voices with great pacing and tone that matches the storyline.

    "Nice Listen"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Homeworld to be better than the print version?

    Same


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

    Yes. Its got a good story the plot is interesting and


    Which character – as performed by Benjamin L. Darcie – was your favorite?

    Mr Darcie does equally well with all the character voices.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I hate spoilers but it was when the Odyessy was apparently destroyed.


    Any additional comments?

    Its a good story with interesting characters. The action is well done and there is enough mystery to the story that it will be interesting to see where it goes since Earth was lost.

    I drive a 18 wheeler, audible is a great way for me to stay awake, but its got to be riveting, so a good author and narrator is key.

    "Intriguing"

    By far the best so far. The story moved pretty easy with less of the unnecessary minutia that plaged the first two books. This story had high action and an intriguing cliff hanger that I truly didn't expect which made me by the next book. So here's to improvements of storytelling and great stories.

    "A Great Addition to a Great Series"
    What did you love best about Homeworld?

    The Book is extremely well written and equally well read.<br/>Kicking Ass and Taking Names!!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Homeworld?

    NUTS!!! A Great Quote from history!


    What does Benjamin L. Darcie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Prior to this series, I do not remember listening to Ben Darcie.<br/>He brings the characters to life and gives a memorable performance.<br/>He did such a great job that I have listened to the book twice in a week!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The book has several events that you would only find in an old World War Two movie.<br/>All great moments of heroism!

    "book three in the series, thoroughly enjoyable."

    this book is a fast-paced adventure with lots of aliens, hints of fantastic things to come, and good old-fashioned space combat. If you liked the first two in the series you'll like this one too.
