    Das scheint das Erstlingswerk des Autors zu sein, denn all seine anderen Bücher sind deutlich stärker - darüber bin ich erst darauf gestoßen. Die erste Hälfte des Buches ist großartig, während die Zweite deutliche Schwächen zeigt. Dennoch macht das Buch neugierig, wie es weiter geht. Wer durchhält, wird deutlich belohnt, denn die Serie nimmt zwischen Band 4-5 deutlich an Fahrt auf und wird sehr interessant. Inzwischen bin ich bei Band 10 und kann die Serie als Ganzes empfehlen. Die erwähnte Auslieferung von alten Ebook-Versionen, wie das ein anderer Rezensent erwähnt, sollte nicht mehr vorkommen. Ich habe jedenfalls nichts nachteiliges gemerkt. Und wenn schon, welcher nicht Native-Speaker würde die feinen Nuancen der Grammatik erkennen? Ich jedenfalls nicht.Die Serie erinnert mich sehr stark an Perry Rhodan, zumindest der Anfang, was ich an sich begrüße. Man bekommt einen Einblick in den, mit vielen Überraschungen und Problemen (Aliens!), behafteten Aufbruch der Menschheit in die Sterne. Das macht echt Spaß!

    I liked (re-)reading this series from the 1st book onwards. It is Space Opera deluxe and quite entertaining, intelligent but not intellectual, never boring and above all quite addictive! Even if the story is driven by tech development, interstellar conflicts and space battles, it is not really military or hardcore tech sci-fi, but more about character and story development. Can't wait for the next books to come out.Unfortunately the indie author and his books had suffered quite a bit from bad reviews on .com for the bad or not existing editing, which has been professionally rectified since early 2016, so everyone can enjoy reading now!

    Anscheinend wird sowohl im Kindle Unlimited, als auch in der gekauften Version die falsche, alte Version geliefert.Die Vorschau des Kindle Buches enthält aber die aktuelle, richtige Version.Beispielsatz aus der Vorschau: "The airplanes of old had all been mostly replaced [...]"Der gleiche Satz in der gelieferten (alten, falschen) Version: "The airplanes of old have all been mostly replaced [...]"Die downloadbare Version hat auch noch das alte Cover.Ich würde gerne die aktuelle berichtigte Version lesen!

    I really liked this book!! I would technically give it 4.5 stars if it was an option! I like the ideology and philosophy of it.The only reason I don't give a full 5 stars is because of charactor development. I would love to have more! Also for some language.But I would recommend this book to others! It is a great read and can't wait to read the next one!Also, for the author, I have taken note of many aspects of your plot development for my own work in progress. My book likewise encompasses a great span of time. Your timeline/article at the beginning is a great idea and it helped me drastically!! Thank you!!! I look forward to reading the rest of the series! Thank you so much for sharing your heart and mind with us in this!- Justin

    The book had great story line and character build but it was difficult to read due to poor use of tense and preposition. I got the feeling it was converted to English from another language and done poorly. The story line is good enough that I still plan on reading the next book in the series.It would be very helpful if the publisher reviewed and corrected the grammar on this book and the rest of the series, assuming they have the same problem.

    A good read and I am up to the 6th book in the series. But the underlying plot is exactly the same as another series by an author using a pen name. The pen name author has a picture in his profile, but Ivan does not. Are these two the same author? Either they are the same person, or one is using the others work.
