"Can't Wait For More"
D. L. Smith has wondrously blended science and fantasy to create a future so outrageously believable that it's hard to believe it exists only in the pages of this debut novel. Smith uses philosophy, humor and fast-paced action to embellish the notion that if we are to play a significant role in space, then like pioneers of old we'd better be worthy of it. In a war for survival comparable to anything envisioned by H.G. Wells or Gene Roddenberry, Smith creates a universe that is bright yet sinister, and filled with a humanity we've yet to imagine. This action-filled saga is a great read for sci-fi lovers, philosophers and anyone looking for a darn good read!

D. L. Smith handles a complex and interracial set of characters (earthly and extraterrestrial) with great skill. I enjoyed the author's interweaving of the Imperians and the crews of the terrestrial space vehicles, and all the adventures and intrigues of the intricate plot. The resolution of the tale leaves us eagerly awaiting more.
A good story from a new SciFi author. A real page turner. I enjoyed the Smith's descriptive narration style. It's very cinematic. Even though this book is about 450 pages, it reads fluently and quickly.
