With this installment this book series is back in shape after the dip it took (in my personal opinion of course) with the previous one. Not that the previous one really was a bad book but I was disappointed that the Aurora was just sitting in orbit while the action centered around dirt based guerilla warfare.

In this one we’re pretty much back to space and starship action. The Aurora gets some much needed repairs and also some improvements from the more advanced tech that’s now available to them

Nice book! Adds quite a bit to the series story arc, and has an awesome space battle at the end. Very well written, can't wait to get the next one.

From My Newsletter Number 38:
The first review is on Rise Of The Corinai from The Frontiers Saga Episode 5 by Ryk Brown. The story starts out with the Aurora badly damaged by battle and a shortage of crew members. Captain Nathan Scott must enlist a new crew from Corinair volunteers and former Yamaro crew members who have turned against the Ta’Akar. Nathan has started a rebellion in the Darvano system and created a new Alliance of planets that must now find a way to overthrow the Ta’Akar king, Cai

I'm not ashamed to say I'm addicted to this series. What's different about this storyline as opposed to some of the other authors self-publishing is the lack of a formula for each book. You know how some authors write the same thing over and over but in different locations with new character? So far that's not a problem with The Frontiers Saga.

Will they or won't they....

Book 5 is an entertaining and blood pressure raising episode. The ride through it is worth the price. If you haven't already done so start with Book 1 and catch up. See you on the other side of Ta’Akar. Happy trails.

Another good one.

Episode is a nice build-up to what is turning out to be a great series. I also appreciate the orthography. Science fiction these days is not properly proof-read. Great book.

Solid writing

Well written page turner. Better spelling and grammar than most self published books. Feels a little more derivative than I would really like, but the author is improving with each book.

Continuation of a good story- same excellent quality of prose
Carries the theme well amongst all the episodes. A little heavy on the technical side, but good ideas

Another great book in the series. Earth is awesome! I love how the author often foreshadows an event early in the book and delivers it in glorious fashion at the end. I must go now. Onward to the next book.

Great story

What more could you ask for? A new technology looking to be used. Throw in desperation and you have a rip roaring yarn.

The best episode yet. Thanks for keeping me interested and on the edge of my seat. Keep up the good work and keep the books coming.

A New Star Trek?

This series could easily be adapted for an entire new TREK.
Looking forward to returning to the next new story,

enjoyed this instalment. The characters are finally acting like naval officers and the whole story is coming together well. Will read more.

Part 5 in a series. Way too slow. Explained a bunch of tech development, but very little action. I hope the next picks up the pace a bit.

a build up of sorts, the alliance gains strength and resolve until it is forced to defend the planet once again.

I'm enjoying the series. It's one of my summer guilty pleasures. I get a little in each evening right as I climb into bed, and pick up again the next night---stretches it out and makes the adventure last. :)

Better then the previous book although a bit predictable.

Good series. Enjoying the way Brown develops the characters. Pacing is good, and I really like how he focuses the tale w/o throwing in needless foul language, etc.

Captain Scott and his crew continue their adventures as they fulfill their obligation to help overthrow a tyrannical emperor - some narrow escapes here.

Thankfully, this book returned to the style of the first ones. Even though everything is still rather chaotic, the writing is less confusing than the previous book.

This is the only part of the story that really felt like 'filler'. It is very good filler; but still just an in-between in the story line.

My favorite of the series so far. A lot of detail of ships and weapons without being dry. Interesting plot, lots of suspense.....
