4.5 stars...

Loved it! Non-Stop action, murderous AI's, a journalist in over her head and a military Sergeant with a past that keeps rearing its ugly head...what more can you ask for?! : )

I have to say Tarah Benner's Author's Notes are absolutely fascinating! I look forward to reading those just as much as I do the actual book. She presents an amazing amount of factual data about the world we live in that is just scary. If you ever read any of her books, you've got to read her notes in the back;
This is one of those books in a series that you read and realize, you could have skipped entirely for all the forward momentum in plot that took place. The relevant bits could have been pared down and split between the first book and the third (heaven help me, I'm going to begin reading that one tonight). 

The story picks up quite literally where the first book leaves off because the first didn't have an ending, just an abrupt full stop scene cut. So the bots are going rogue and Maggie and Jonah

Great series so far

Book one for five stars, this one gets four. It didn't quite good up to book one. There were many times that I felt the tech got too complicated for the story telling. It started feeling more like I needed to Google things to sort out what was going on. Don't get me wrong, Ms. Bennett is a great story teller but this book just didn't give me as much character substance as usual for her. There wasn't much of the characters relating to each other. When looking back, you realize

This continuation of the story of the colony on Elderon was difficult to put down. The research by author Benner is put to good use as advanced technology, politics and personal vendetta are skillfully employed as Jonah and Maggie and the Space Force face off with robots, hacked and dangerous.

The what, who and why are exposed in this fast-paced, exciting story set in the not so distant future while the burgeoning romance between Space Force officer Jonah and news reporter Maggie begin

This series by Tarah Benner has been a joy to read. She has done her research on and created a very logical future communication system. She has made the system benign (so as to keep folks from freaking out and getting caught up in something other than the "big brother" issues). Read her authors notes - they are fascinating.
This book focuses on life on Elderon, the first totally private space station/luxury resort. The upside and down of initial occupation and running of the resort is pe

Dystopian and SciFi

Non-stop action from page 1 with a seamless transition from Colony One. The thought that went into this story line is amazing and intricate. Just when you think a situation will be solved, it takes a turn.
As always, in books I love, there is the love interest that blossoms in the face of tragedy and grows. And I love the strong woman that isn't over the top, in that strongness, still has her vulnerabilities.

Book 2 colony

Book 2 had a few errors throughout and was a slow book. The characters and plot had potential, but was the same as the first book but on Earth instead. I will not read book 3. It will probably be the same but back at the space station, so it will repeat itself.

Another gripping plot. Another page turner. I truly loved this book almost as much as the first. And finally a kissing scene!!!!

Interesting follow-up

This was a good continuation of the first book. These are definitely not standalone stories and need to be read in order.

Colony War

It was an interesting book to read. I could do without the cussing though. The political propaganda at the end was way too much.

You got me with the ending of the first book. I was on a jaunty ride and then boom! I have been waiting for the sequel, I was not disappointed. Hurry up with the next one.

Future forseen

Close enough to the world we live in to be perfectly plausible. So while the book is entertaining it is scarier for the implication to our future.

4 out of 5 stars.

This book was a good sequel. Lots of fast-paced action. Can’t wait for the next book. Hopefully it’s not too far away.

This installment has the same flaws as the first. When everything is new on the first book, here just became repetitive, nothing new is added. There is more action, but with a plot this thin, it's not really enjoyable. Some of the characters actions are questionable and the villain is plain and his goals are generic. I want to how they will defeat the threat, but I'm hoping the next installment isn't just a repetition of this one.

The narrator did an amazing job, specially her male voice, it's qu
