Publisher's Summary

Beyond the confines of our small world, far from the glow of our star, lie a galaxy and universe much larger and more varied than anyone on Earth can possibly imagine. For the new NAC spacecraft Odyssey and her crew, the unimaginable facets of this untouched world are about to become reality.The Odyssey's maiden voyage is an epic adventure destined to make history.

Captain Eric Weston and his crew encounter horrors, wonders, monsters, and people; all of which will test their resolve, challenge their abilities, and put in sharp relief what is necessary to be a hero.

A first-rate military-science-fiction epic that combines old-school space opera and modern storytelling, Into the Black: Odyssey One is a riveting, exhilarating adventure with vivid details, rich mythology, and relentless pacing.

    "Weak"

    Worst dialogue ever, real people don't talk to to each other that way. Did anyone edit this book?

    Story
    "Lots better out there"

    Maiden voyage, new type of ship, Earth's first FTL drive. So of course the captain decides, what the heck, let's go somewhere really far and unknown. There are lots of hearkenings to other (better) series and TV shows. The best line is the self-deprecating on-the-nose, "this is worse than a sci-fi novel" comment. It brings a chuckle, but the novel loses credibility.

    I do not like the nature of the FTL drive. I cannot believe that engineers would leave it the way it is. It seems quite ridiculous.

    I do not like that girl Mia; I wish her life-support had given out 5 minutes earlier. She is such a ditzy, cringing fool I can't believe she was ever allowed on a space ship. Once she gets into battle armor, she seems tolerable, but that's because she's like a different person.

    I do not like the doctor's constant, "my dear" ing, which the machine translator changes to "deer". That's supposed to be funny.

    I do not like how the ship's linguist makes some sort of translation break-through but the captain doesn't have time for it, and then neither does the author--never mentioned again.

    I do not like the narrator. I probably couldn't sit at dinner and talk to him for very long, no matter what voice he uses.

    I thought the story line indicated some time travel or ancient alien abductions, but that hasn't proven the case yet. Future books might clear up that mystery.

    If you want to fight bugs, read Star Force or Ender's Game. If you want to go exploring, read The Lost Fleet. If you want to encounter intercultural problems with humans, read The Empire's Corps.

    "Great start to an exciting series..."

    The book exceeded my expectations. They narrator kept the story interesting. I also liked how the writer did not overdo the explanation between the storyline.
    Looking forward to the next book in the upcoming series.

    Story
    "no idea how navies work"

    if this man has ever been in sight of a warship I'll apologize. however I'm certain he has no clue how any military works, and that makes this painful to listen to or read. if you've served , don't bother with this book, it'll make you cringe. I couldn't even pay attention to the story for all bs his characters were spewing.

    "Simply brilliant and entertaining!"

    The story is amazing and the narrator perfectly skilled in telling it. Already purchased the next book and will begin listening as soon as I finish writing this.

    "Finally, a story where the good guys can kick ass"

    Out gunned and in some ways out matched, still, our team isn't doing too bad. Stir story contains interesting science, well written battles and decent but not overwhelming character development.

    "Good start"

    The story progressed naturally and wonderfully - then the battles started... And didn't stop. I wished there was more dialogue between the Earth vessel and the colonials but I suppose that might be coming up in the next book. The reading and presentation was clear and wonderfully recorded.
