I simply loved it. Elite: Legacy is a story full of action, battles and deceit, just as I like them, except the battles are in space and not in a remote jungle.

The plot? Freeholm is an ex penal colony that fought for independance. For the last ten years, peace was prevailing but obviously, someone was not too happy about that, as Freeholm has a lot of riches and natural resources that are not available for free anymore and no more cheap labour. Rings a bell in real life? All what I will say to

Pretty decent SF set in the Elite: Dangerous universe. Brookes weaves a great story with lots of intrigue, a cast of acceptably nuanced characters that all have interacting goals, and the action itself is well visualized and fast-paced. However, there are quite a few points here that I'd consider "rookie mistakes". Most egregious to me is that Brookes falls back on the "faceless enemies" trope towards the end of the books: the main characters are faced with a large number of enemy combatants, wh ...more

Really enjoyed this. Starts off with good scene setting and introduction to the Elite universe and then gets straight in to heart of the story, which is well thought out and kept me turning pages. To use a oft used phrase, I couldn't put it down! In fact I read it Elite: Legacy within two days and was sad when I got to the end.

Hoping there will be a follow up...

I had no expectations going into this which really worked to my advantage. This book was a lot of fun. There were quite a few errors, missing words, wrong words, etc, but if you can get past that, then the story is great. Didn't remind me of any other sci fi book that I have read which really made this all the better. I definitely recommend.

Outstanding fiction in the Elite: Dangerous universe, I'm inspired to seek out other work by this author as a result.

This book suffers from very poor linguistic structuring and editing. It makes the process of reading it uncomfortable and frustrating. Specifically, the author constantly joins independent clauses by commas, chaining together long and often disconnected thoughts in a way that is jarring and difficult to follow. Above the sentence-level issues, the narrative lens rarely follows a cohesive line of thought; introspective monologue roves back and forth almost at random, dumping heavy but monotonous ...more
