This was a good book, i listened to the audio version. It was very heavy on political decision making, planning, tactics and subterfuge instead of action and explosions. I definitely didn't mind te change of pace but i know that some may be put off by the lack of battle.
My main compliant which goes for mccollum's antares series as well is that he spends an annoyingly long time recapping the story line for the first book. If you're reading the 2nd book... Then you should have read the first!

Decent realistic science fiction book about first contact. Part of a trilogy.

Quick and fast and fun. Read all three books in less than a week.

No, I couldn't make it through. I love the story, but the writing's just makes it too hard to enjoy. Too bad, could have been a great series!

Really enjoyed this book, great improvement on book 1. I really hope there will be more than 3 books because the author has created such a huge story that it would be a crime to leave it too early. Onto the next book!

Really enjoying this series but finding some of the character interaction believable and engaging while others cheesy and less believable. Definitely would recommend.
