This author needs to flesh out his storyline some more. Fill in the blanks like what kind of fighting he has done and what is driving him to do what he does. The characters were decently defined, but some back story on them would be better. Overall, this is a decent start for this author and I liked the novel.

The Battle for Allegra is the first episode in a brand new side-series that I am adding to my universe of books! If you like alien invasions, sci-fi military action, and stories you can read in under an hour, then this is the perfect book for you!

The Battle for Allegra: Conscripted

Our hero, Matthew, is tired of working for his father as a fisherman and wants a change. He didn't think he'd be forced off his home planet to fight in a war with all the other young men and women from his community. It doesn't pay to tick off the commanding officer before you even board the space vessel.

It turns out all the fighting on his father's boat might help keep him alive a day or two. Read now and find out what's going on.

intrigued. one of them big words i'm averse to, but it fits. reads a bit like anime to me/another term I dislike. felt like a slow starter to me, just like a lot of anime, but by the end of first chapter I was definitely curious, hellabrutal. wondered if it was gratuitous, so had to read further. aspects felt borrowed, but not totally off-putting, making fer n interesting recipe. managed to keep my attention in spite of pacing/descriptive to a fault. by the end it turns out to be just beginning, ...more

Wow, I loved this book even more than Caleb Fast's other series! I think these books may be the prequels to his other series, The Limit of Infinity, but I'm not sure. Either way, I really enjoyed Matthew's character. ...more

Needs work

A little disjointed. Going from a fishing/sailing ship. To a machine shop
Seeing his girl tortured. To not kicking the guys ass who done it. To him fighting all the big guys and winning there is to much inconsistency. Also there needs to be more story on the training. So far there's none at all. To me it needs work.
