Love this series. I originally came in at book 2 found at a second hand store around 1992. Frantic search then started for the others. Found book 3 in my brother's collection a year or so later. Spent about 20 years looking for books one and four, even going so far and considering buying them second hand for an obscene amount of money through Amazon before finding them online.

I discovered The Biofab War via Twitter and am absolutely thrilled with this story. It starts off with fantastic space-opera action, switches in the next chapter to 20th (21st?) century Terra, and then brings the two together with blasters, alien bugs, clones, psionics, AIs, alternate/parallel existences, and some delicious plot twists. I thoroughly enjoyed this.

Always loved this series!

Interesting concept, but not well written.

Continuing story of Spartan and family which is well worth a read just make sure you start at the very first book or will soon get lost in the story

Fast-paced scifi action flick. Really enjoyed this one. Looking forward to the rest in the series. Greatly intrigued by the biotech fabrications running around and the insectoid race.
