Lions and tigers and Clusters, oh my! Book Three in The Old Star Saga. I loved this series. Well paced and written in clean, unaffected style, this is good sci fi with a nice balance between geeky astrophysics and human sensitivy. I grew very fond of the characters by the end of it: pirates, sailors, warriors and wild women. This book brought the first two together beautifully, with enough information placed here and there to show the whole picture without being repetitive, and to answer some of ...more

It’s not very often that I find myself finishing a book with my jaw literally dropped open. That’s what happened with David Lee Summers’ new novel, Heirs of the new Earth. I flat out admit I was disappointed not with the ending of the tale but the very fact that I had come to the adventure’s conclusion. Summers carefully breaks up his tale into sections and like a master weaver threads separate story arcs and characters across the galaxy, spinning the fabric of an amazing tale of Science Fiction ...more

This is book 3 in this series and I absolutely loved it. In this book, the humans must come up with a way to stop the Cluster. All my favorite characters show up, including Ellison Firebrandt and Roberts from book 1.

I couldn't set this book down. The book flowed easily even though it kept the reader up to date on different characters in d

Heirs of the New Earth is a fitting conclusion to the Old Star/New Earth saga. The aliens and Terrans (both human and whale) learn to interact on a whole new level. One of my favorite characters, Captain Ellison Firebrandt, returns to Earth to help keep the Cluster from enslaving humanity. A good mix of action and science fictional ideas kept me turning pages. An enjoyable read.
