took me pretty long before i got into it... there's a lot of political factions involving various alulien species as well as humans. edwards is such a self-serving, selfish bastard.

Maybe it is all for the best that The Sentinels never made it to television. Where the duo that make up McKinney did an excellent job adding depth and maturity (to a degree) to the novelization of the Macross saga, they appear to have simply gone through the motions in trying to adapt the scripts for the follow-up series. They struggle to introduce characters in a smooth manner, have a worse time trying to represent the political scheming, and the action is almost non-existent (they choose to ...more

I'm not sure how many books 'Jack McKinney' actually sold in this series, but it has to be pretty stupendous. Nonetheless, the 4th, or Sentinels Series is another great example of finding a groove and sticking to it. McKinney is pressed for the first time with making it up as he goes, because unlike the first three Robotech Series this one never made it past initial production. He does, however, use his talent and knowledge of the universe to begin to cobble together a cohesive story that inspir ...more

Great series of books for kids that enjoy or are interested in science fiction. I read these books in middle school (I'm now in my 30s) and loved each one. The stories are fun, engaging and relatively fast paced. I'd be tempted to reread them now just for old time's sake if I didn't have so many new books on my to-read list.

I knocked it down a peg because, in retrospect, there are some aspects that are a bit too cheesy. I'm sure when my kids are old enough, they'll get thier own copies.

I loved Robotech growing up and the Sentinels series was the series that I wanted to see animated the most after the original. Settling for the books instead, sadly the book doesn't match the appeal of a cartoon series. Nevertheless, it's good to see how the storyline progresses and learn about the events between the RDF and the Masters' home world.

Great SiFi series. Giant battlesuits battling outer space monsters, what more can you ask for. Very recommended

Good read. Very nostalgic

Good read. Been a long time since I read this series. I watched and own all the episodes. Never read sentinels, this fills a lot of holes.

Shelves: television, skiffy
Godawful. So disappointing, not worth the effort. Hard to believe Brian Daley was parially responsible for this tripe.

Read it back in the summer of 1991, and just reread it in 2011 still really enjoyed it. Though most of this series I admit to not remembering the finer details so it had it page turning moments.

Good start

Nice to see what happened to the sdf3 after so many years. Glad I delved back into the lives of the old crew.
