Summary

A surprise attack.

Technology has allowed humanity to take to the stars. Earth’s first step toward exploring the unknown universe begins with a surge of hope, followed by the sting of a surprise attack. Just as their most advanced ship embarks on its maiden voyage, aliens assault the unprepared fleet, making a play for an ancient technology the human race has relied upon for all major advances.

This sudden meeting proves humans are not the only sentient beings in the vastness of space, and it quickly becomes clear they will need to thwart the plans of their new enemies. If they do not, our first foray into the unknown could well be our last.

LIKE LISTENING TO A WET LETTUCE

The storey is OK but the narrator just drones on and on with no passion or expression at all, so I won't be getting the rest of the storey, a pity so make your own mind up for yourself!!

Not written for anyone other than children.

Firstly Russell Newton does a decent job with the narration but he is narrating a poorly written bland at times confusing story. The characters are given ranks like Lieutenant, Sargent, Captain, etc but they mean nothing one minute the Sargent is giving direct orders to a Lieutenant then the next a different Lieutenant is ordering a Sargent. There is zero since of military order or discipline what so ever. Some of the technology in the story seems very interesting and intriguing but there is zero explanation for any of it. The author will often change from past to future to current tense in the same sentence . The author seems entirely unsure about his own storey he uses words like probably, maybe, possibly, maybe, and must be often. It's very tiring over all I wish I hadn't sent my credit on this story.
