Publisher's Summary

A mysterious entity may be the key to a starship’s survival - or a terrifying new threat - as the Odyssey One series continues…

The Empire has set its sights on its next target: human Terrans. As effective allies of the Priminae, the denizens of Earth have proven themselves enemies to the Empire, and now the Imperial forces know more about the Terran home world than ever before. 

The battle for the planet’s survival will see the Odysseus first into the breach. But more perils loom for Commodore Eric Weston and his comrades. They’re at odds with the political conflicts dividing Earth’s government and challenged by the mysterious presence haunting their vessel—its intentions unclear, and the extent of its powers unknown.

As the Empire brings the battle home, the crew of the Odysseus will need to determine whether this entity will support them in their fight for survival, or prove to be another dangerous foe.

There’s no turning back…and the only way forward may be a pathway to doom.

A great military Sci Fi

you will see people complaining that it is a fantasy now and that they came for sci fi, but everything in the book has a possible future. just because they dont think Gestalts can be a thing they say it is fantasy. it is amazing and truly enjoyable.

Good recovery from previous book

Overall this entry in the Odyssey series was pretty good. It was a clear step up from the disaster that was the last book. There were multiple battles (although small) that kept the story going instead of 1 long drawn out battle. The story also answered some questions that were brought up in previous books. Some downside to the book is that the author seems to ignore pieces of the story that were developed in previous books as well as not give enough information about certain aspects, is as if he has to hit a minimum number of pages and just gives up when he does. This book also just took a large time jump to skip past some smaller battles but didn't even talk about what occurred in those battles. Some numbers would be nice, how many are in the enemy force after the previous 7-8 battles, you've been thinning out their forces but don't let the reader know to what effect. As I said, this was much improved over the last couple of entries in the series, so hopefully that is a good sign as to whats next.

If I Wanted Fantasy....

I was really enjoying Evan Currie’s Odyssey series - that is, until his “science fiction” morphed into “fantasy,” starting with “Odysseus Awakening” and becoming even more glaringly fantastic in “Odysseus Ascendant”. I’m not quite half way through the book and I’m thinking, “Give me a BREAK!” I’ve been HOPING that the new fantasy characters would turn out to be a mortal alien species, but naming one “Gaia” and implying that she and the others similar to her were possibly immortal, well, that has really put me off.

Turning Sci-go to fantasy

Enjoyed the first book. Reader was an issue on the others. Delving into fantasy is z distraction to me.

Nice but shallow and illogical.

I just finished the entire series, and the fillings are very mixed.
The books are generally good and even somewhat absorbing. At the same time, all feels very shallow and barely believable.
All weapon improvements during the war with empire coming only from two captains. Not only all Earth researchers not coming with any improvements, but it seems even improved torpedoes and drones not used by home fleet defending Earth. Not mentioned any effort to improve tachyon canons. This in spite of the fact that it was mentioned that one of the colonial fleet captains attempted to compensate for gravity distortions and even got some promising results. Sci-fi should be still based on logic. And logic is missing very much from all these series.
I also have issues wit gestalts. Not because of the introduction of gestalts brakes sci-fi rules, but because of the fact that it is not adding any value to the story. It seems like the author wanted to add content but was unable to come with anything relevant. So, he slapped some not relevant fantasy to the main theme.
Bottom line, mainly because of lack of logic I don't think I will read this author more.

Great Series

Great series, I really enjoyed all the twist and turns the author brought us. The narrator did a good job creating different character voices for the many different characters that were throughout series. Can’t wait to see where the author takes us next.

Really good series. one qualm

it gööd böök. My appröv! I likë tœ listən tœ spæce

I have one critique. The author repeats certain technical points over and over in the same book. IMO it would have been better to have a skippable forward section explaining all the lore.
