    1. This book by Ian Douglas pseudonym for William H Keith Jr was SO DISAPPOINTING Frankly, it was terrible, even for a pulp military science fiction book Just terrible.I generally loved the first 3 books in this series, although I thought 3 Singularity ended sort of abruptly I also absolutely LOVED all 3 of the space marine series The Heritage, Inheritance, and Legacy Series as well as the new Star Corpsman series However, I felt like this book was written with a pending deadline or something.Here [...]


    2. This is the fourth book in Ian Douglas s Star Carrier series and continues to deliver great story telling and compelling space battles.Out near an enigmatic anomaly called The Black Rosette a research vessel and two marine spaceships are destroyed by some sort of weapon Now Earth,and particularly the USNA, are concerned that the truce with the Sh daar has just been cancelled by them.Adding to this impression one of the colonies settled by Earth has been attacked and reclaimed by a race known to [...]


    3. Book 4 is as good as the restIntense scientific detail and packed with military action this book is very much like it s predecessors The underlying plotline of an alien empire and and an enigmatic, ultra advanced race continues to develop I m looking forward to book 5.


    4. This is a good book there is little question about that It takes off quite a few years after the last book ended but it still pretty much continues the main story arc from the first three books As before there is a fair amount of action and the action is well written taking most of the normal laws of nature into account making for a realistic, as far as science fiction goes, experience.Again the Star Carrier battle group kicks some alien butt but not without getting a fair beating in return The [...]


    5. It has been twenty years since the confrontation at T sub minus0.876gy Alexander Koenig is campaigning for his second term as president of the United States of North America and Trevor Gray is acting captain of the CVS TC USNA America For these twenty years, Humanity has honored the Sh daar Treaty, which put together a cease fire between the Humans and the Sh daar Empire But somewhere in deep space, near a planet called Arianrhod, a new client species called the Slan are attacking Confederation [...]


    6. As usual, I received this book via a GoodReads giveaway Despite that kind consideration my candid opinions follow.In a nutshell, it s 2424 and the human race is under threat and what ever can possibly save the day Yeah, that about sums up the plot nuff said.The first thing that strikes me about Douglas work is that he s not afraid to weave a complex and satisfying world with a long history and many varied inhabitants He rightly expects his readers to concentrate and pay attention if they have an [...]


    7. Deep Space takes place twenty years after Singularity Admiral Koenig is now the president of the North American Union, and Trevor Grey is the captain of the Star Carrier America Trouble is brewing as a mysterious object appears at the fringes of known space, destroying the scout force sent to investigate it The Sh daar resume hostilities by attacking a human colony Finally, the Confederation is in trouble as the EU seeks to eliminate North American Union independence Naturaly, the America and it [...]


    8. This is the 4th book in the Star Carrier series by Ian Douglas It has been 20 years since an uneasy peace was begun with the alien Sh darr Then Admiral Alexander Koenig has just been re elected for a 2nd term as president of the USNA formally the USA The USNA is at odds with the Confederation and a civil war seems to be coming Meanwhile something emerges from an area of deep space known as the Black Rosetta It destroys a USNA ship and whatever it is frightens the Sh darr so much that they decide [...]


    9. This continues the long and wonderful series of hard tech military sci fi from Douglas a nom de plume which took us from the early 21st Century to well into the misty future More than one race vies with mankind for domination of the future Many are client races of one overweening master race which has moved beyond physical form to a tech based essence But even these technologically advanced overlords fear older, powerful mastersThis is the 4th installment of his current Star Carrier series Stil [...]


    10. This story felt like a reprise of book one of Ian Douglas s original series The Sh daar alliance seems to be falling apart The earth alliance is falling apart The Star Carrier America leaves the solar system and goes rogue after a wild and wooly battle with another unknown alien race.What is compelling about this story are the mysteries that this story sets up Who created the Black Rosette, where did the Sh daar really go, and how does a modern spacefaring culture have a civil war without destor [...]



    11. For those who are familiar with the series so far, this book takes place 20 years after the events of book 3 Singularity Koenig has retired from the military and is just starting his second term as President of the USNA Gray is now the captain of the carrier America Note that he s not the Admiral of a battle group so he hasn t actually taken over Koenig s old job, he s actually replaced Buchanan in that capacity After a series of unfortunate events that I will not say because they would be spoil [...]


    12. I ve been waiting for quite some time for this next installment s pre order to arrive on my Kindle on release date, and I immediately jumped in to it.From an overall standpoint, the book pretty much picks up right where it left off in the battle with the Sh daar, albeit 20 years down the road from where book three left off You have the battles, you have the wins and losses, and there is a to be continued element of the ending I enjoyed it, but I felt like I was slogging my way through it vs beco [...]


    13. This is the 4th book in the Star Carrier series I like the series, and while I rate this lower than the other three, it was still a very good book I like the discussion on trying to communicate with other alien species and the problems understanding them.



    14. The Star Carrier has been an amazing adventure across 4 books, sadly this is the conclusion This novel takes place 20 years after the last one The author does a great job portraying the characters as time has past and our heroes matured and evolved in what feels like a natural succession There are still some surprises here as a few characters have moved in unexpected directions New aliens are introduced that are much stranger then anything encountered by the fleet so far Again Star Carrier Ameri [...]


    15. This is the fourth book in the Star Carrier series, but it is of a first book in a new trilogy, taking place 20 years after the third book.As in the other books, the over all story is enticing and appealing I really enjoy how the author manages to mix military battles with great sci fi and always keep the pace even and unrelenting.However, this book is by far the worst of the four.What I have most trouble with is the constant and really insistent repeating of the same things over and over again [...]


    16. It s ok.This book starts to make good on the strife building at home on Earth but it s a bit clumsy Overall it s repeating a lot of the same themes the books have already gone through and doesn t feel like it expands any long term plots enough to add as much as it could or should to the series.Some of the actions going on around Earth come across as rather annoying to the reader You can see some coming and have to just ask yourself really The excessive repetition of certain essential background [...]


    17. Where book 3, Singularity, completed the first part of the story, Deep Space picks things up a little further on This much I liked I liked the new characters, the new encounters, the new alien races, the new problems, the gradual reveals There s a nice level of background detail that fleshes out the story rather well.But oh my, so much repeated text Perhaps the author is assuming that somebody is going to pick up Book 4 as their starting off point, or that it s been a while and the reader needs [...]


    18. I read this book about a year ago and was not as impressed with it as I was upon rereading it now This time around, I really can t see any reason to dock it points.Pros SPOILERS BELOW epic space battles author mostly sticks to his guns about the physical universe he s created There is a lot of consistency, though I did find myself wondering how the Slan could be among the most feared warriors of the Sh daar if they don t have a concept of total war author thinks about things in all kinds of craz [...]


    19. This series is going down the drain Started out good in the first two books, was borderline readable in book three and then this turd shows up Unreadable drivel.The worst part is the authors complete blindness for his severe case of american exceptionalism and inability to write believable about politics It is simply incredibly annoying when every single diplomatic act or decision is just stupid, without any reason or thinking behind it And even worse, when the same stupidity is enacted by the b [...]


    20. Ian Douglas continues his star carrier series twenty years after the last trilogy ended in a truce between humanity and other alien species Something new is coming and the Sh daar group wants to destroy humanity before it has to face this new enemy from Deep Space paper from HarperCollins Publishers At the same time the European heads of the Confederation want control of the United States of North America and Alexander Koenig, the former Navy commander, now President of the USNA has to find a wa [...]


    21. Another awesome book I breezed thru this book in a few days time reading on and off during the week Can t put the book down as the action is really fast paced and Ian Douglas keeps on adding new things to the plot line.This time around our space fighter pilot, Trevor Gray has been promoted as captain of the America Star Carrier and surprise, surprise, Koenig is now President of the new USA There are new aliens with technology years ahead of humanity the Slan and Trevor needs to figure out how to [...]


    22. I won this book in a advanced reader Giveaway This being the first time i have read a sci fi space fighting story I have to be truthful that i was really bored with it at the beginning I guess all my life i have been used to watching Star Trek and when they give commands i can see it on the television and understand what they mean But i really wanted to give this book a chance and as the story progressed it became less scientific and of a drama that i could actually get into There are plenty of [...]


    23. As expected, this is another military focused story I had hoped this book would not contain the incessant repetitions of physical principles in space manouvering and combat, acronyms explained, references to old earth naval and aerial combat etc Luckilly, it did contain far less of these repetitions But as a replacement, the book is full of poor dialouge and character relations Much too predictable for my liking, and unpleasantly full of dialouge only Arnold could utter and come away unshamed by [...]


    24. The first three books were amazing Book 4 is still a good premise, with good action, but the last act of the book started to bog down under the weight of the ever increasing technical explanations and the needless repetition How many new crazy spacetime concepts does a series really need How many times do I really need the so called GRIN technologies explained to me I have a bad feeling that the next book is going to start to buckle under the weight of all this exposition Douglas also takes a st [...]


    25. Summary Another the final excellent military SF space opera episode, lots of excitement and a good complex plot Love it.Plotline Complex plot with aliens and civil war and much much The plot has weaknesses so shouldn t be over analysed.Premise A great technological future with aliens way ahead of us as our enemies.Writing Really good, some of the characters are a bit wooden, but all in all simple, clear and to the point Good style.Ending It all happens Excellent.Pace Never a dull moment


    26. A good story and fun read for what it is However, the author is very repetitive seemed like that, the first time a piece of historical detail came up in a chapter, that he would go off on a two paragraph tangent explaining So some things were explained dozens of times throughout the book so often that I had to chuckle about the number of times I came across an explanation of the White Covenant or the history of the alien antagonists Nonetheless, it was a good story hence the 4 stars and I ll be [...]


    27. Another great book in the Star Carrier series of books Continued use of amazing technology and the discovery of alien species capable of stellar architecture and time space wormhole creation makes this quite a read The continued petty squabbles of the inhabitants of Earth is both familiar and realistic After reading this book in the series, I feel a kind of kinship with the author as I have the same view on religion Maybe we should enact a White Covenant law in order to inhibit the continued Rel [...]


    28. A few dozen pages of not bad battle scenes buried in hundreds that offer nothing but long winded, repetitive frequently verbatim cut and paste jobs , TMI explanations of historical background, character motivations, futuristic battle tech, and alien points of view The author has promising ideas, but really needs to find a collaborator who can keep a plotline moving along and an editor to cut the filler I m done with this series.
