A little dry in parts and very one sided but it has good action and believable tactics If ou like space war one sided but it has good action and believable tactics If Bad Pets you like space war dramas this is a good book forou I m giving it five stars because it delivered the kind of story the description claimed it would It s not often that I don t read a book to the end but I could not bring myself to go any further than the first 40 pages I don t know if it gets any better later in the book but the writing style is really lacking Cliches bad dialog It s really hard to justify spending time on this book as far as sci on this book As far as sci goes it s not a total loss but this book reads like a train schedule It feels so structured all of the time Running Your Best yup pretty much all the time Something like if the 1054 train leaves before the 1108 train but accelerates faster and bypasses the local station then it will arrive 5 minutes ahead of the first train However if going faster means needing fuel the 1108 train will need to refuel at a local station Replace train with space ship andou get the picture Even the minuscule amount of romantics is treated this way On top of this we soon find out that the protagonist Shiloh knows some of what will happen ahead of time which means things run even on schedule He also pretty much single handedly changes the course of the war by coming up with such revolutionary ideas as building bigger tanker ships to reach further into enemy territory gasp all whilst his superiors marvel at his ingenuity I m pretty sure this all sounds a bit like a rant but the books aren t un readable I just find it all a bit annoying Now on the other hand if ou like that kind of writing ATTN I somehow bought this series as one single book and read it all the way through in one reading so I am just going to copy and paste this review for each of the four separate parts making up the whole of the book I readIt was pretty funny to read the reviews. After almost a century of peaceful exploration and colonization of space the United Earth Space Force stumbles across a shockingly xenophobic alien race that has and better armed ships and refuses all attempts at contact As the outgunned Space Force is driven back in battle after battle in what ap. I mean really How can anybody judge this book deserving than 05 stars Everybody has the right to like it or not but I think there are objective things which should our own judgement plot and writing Plot is non existent as wrote here should guide own judgement plot and writing Plot is non existent as wrote here somebody it s pretty flat flavorless and uite repetitive Writing skills are those of a teener But the non plus ultra is the author begging for 5 stars in You cannot be serious It s not bad but not et up to the level of the Webers et alThere s some potential here but overall I found it lacking in execution at least to my taste Still Wehr has been uite innovative on the tech side whereas on the other hand I m not sure whether Newtonian physics has always been taken seriously while writing But ou better not expect too much realism in milSF both on the science side as well for the personalitiesThe story itself plot there s not too much of such a thing is pretty straight forward and if MTIV you urgently need something with starships in battles with faceless aliensou can give this one a try I got to the end of chapter 3 and could go no further The synopsis caught my attention but that was pretty much the only part of the book that engaged my imaginationWhat I liked The descriptive science behind the technologyWhat I didn t like The characters were flat the dialogue was stereotypical and cliche but most of all the 10% I read seemed to be than 90% tell and 10% show This is something that as an author myself gets pointed out to me often than I d like but it gives me the opportunity to fix and improve I wish Mr Wehr had been told that Synchronicity War is tell than fix and improve I wish Mr Wehr had been told that Synchronicity War is tell than Perhaps this makes for an engaging audio book but it could no hold my attention or interest me in going any further I wish Mr Wehr the best of luck in the future I have a hard time putting down military SciFi space opera but had no problem putting this one on Pears to be a war of extermination one officer experiences precognitive visions that help him blunt the enemy onslaught but he can't control or predict when they occurWith the Senior Brass convinced that he's a tactical genius he's given and responsibility and is terrified by the belief that Human.
