I recently met Mr. Richardson at SpoCon (Spokane Science Fiction Convention), so when I saw his book released on Amazon, I picked it up.

The story covers a lot of ground--or space. And it does a lot of hopping from one character to another. This got a bit confusing and at times I lost track of what was going on. It was interesting enough to finish reading. I found the editing a little uneven and a good story editor could help smooth out the rough spots. I suspect there is a sequel or two in the w

Characters
I actually really liked the characters in the book. There doesn’t seem to be any real lead character, but instead an ensemble on characters each giving their own point of view to the situation they’re put in and the war in general.
Devante is compelling as a prince who is placed in power too soon and doesn’t know how to handle his new found command. Dark Reign plays an excellent military commander who wants nothing more than peace for his people. Skyfall, the clone warrior who manipula

In this action-packed space opera where multiple factions are constantly fighting each other and turning traitors as secrets regarding clones are revealed, M.R. Richardson takes his reader on a thrilling adventure, through a futuristic time, on different planets, and around space itself. There was already one Genetics war regarding the fate of clones; will this be another? With the death toll in the hundreds of millions–if not billions?

In this military-esque, Star Wars-feeling novel, we readers

I received this book for free through Voracious Readers Only.

Galactic Mandate: A Radical Cause is a Star Wars-esque epic science fiction story. There's an Empire, there's a clone army, there's strong memorable characters (some with very over-the-top names, which I love) and a lot of action.

There were an awful lot of characters, planets, shifting allegiances, alliances, etc. to keep track of. Some only appeared for a short moment, only to pop up again much later. I had to resort to taking notes a

A really good, gripping story, that engages the reader from the beginning. I found myself changing allegiances as often as some of the characters did and being appalled one moment and impressed the next. I did wonder if this was t he second book in a series as it goes so quickly into action scene after action scene that I felt I could have done with a bit more backstory, but by the end of the book I'd forgotten about that and was really involved with the characters. I felt really bad for Ninety- ...more

Change is good

I must say, I never claimed to be a sci-fi reader but giving this story a chance was fun. I enjoyed the speed of the story, fast pace and thrilling. If you're a fan of Star Trek or Star Wars, well this is an original intriguing take that hopefully one day holds its own ground.

Like a good gumbo this is full of many excellent ingredients, ideas that artfully expressed would when creatively combined, be greater as a whole . unfortunately this reader does not find the whole to measure up to the ideas that were found .

A pretty good space opera with a large cast and good action. The plot is a bit complex (and not much character dev), but satisfying overall. If you like pew-pew, this is probably worth your time.

I really appreciate the advanced copy for review!!

Galactic Mandate – A Radical Cause is a science fiction book written by author M.R. Richardson, and you can grab yourself a copy on Amazon. This story has a lot going on, powerful factions vying for dominance, clone slaves, and space battles and so much more.

So I was sent a copy of this book by the author for review, and first off I want to apologise for the delays in getting this review up but I’m glad the author was patient with me because this book is so worth talking about and I was grateful
