Magnificent new book from sci-fi to author R. L. Blalock

Wildly entertaining, vividly told story of a generation of people from earth seeking a new life on another planet. Join the characters as they struggle to live in this thoroughly hostile environment and interact with the creatures that are there. Well written, well thought out story with a strong storyline and extremely interesting characters. I can't wait to read the next book in the series!

Great Book!

This was so good! There are few series that I want to complete, and this is one of them. So well written, that I was able to read it in a few hours. Move over Avatar! Here comes the Endurance Series!

Slow start but redeemed itself

A tale not a book but is sets up future books. The characterisation is thin, because of that they act in an illogical ways.
I guess its purpose is to set the scene. Maybe the characters will grow?

Really enjoyable.

I randomly came across this treasure when I was browsing out of boredom. I like reading books that have a low amount of reviews because sometimes you find something special in the millions of available titles. I was surprised at the really cool connection that happens in this story between a couple of characters. I was totally caught off guard by it! This book is well written and my only complaint is that it could be longer.

Very short

I really liked the concept but it seemed to fall apart the further l read. The story was too short to achieve the connection between the main characters that would have pulled the reader into the storyline.
