Publisher's Summary

The Drone-masters are coming. Humanity is on the verge of extinction. And Earth has no idea.

The fires of intergalactic war have given rise to an unexpected hero. Medical scientist by training and ship's captain by circumstance, Tag Brewer leads a band of aliens, a few humans, and a synthetic lifeform into the deepest reaches of unexplored space. They may be all that stands between humanity and utter annihilation. It's up to Tag's crew to unveil the shroud of secrecy surrounding the Drone-masters. He must destroy them before they destroy Earth.

I really liked all 3 books so far

In this book, the captain, continued to be predictable. The best way I can describe it is that the story is going along well with good development and good action, but the characters seem stuck. Tad seems especially stuck in limbo. His character hasn't grown, he has the same tendencies, same weaknesses, etc. He isn't a bad character, but as the protagonist, I'd expect more growth in his character and some of the secondary characters. This doesn't make the story bad, it could just be better. I still want to read book 4 and now I have to actually put up a full credit when I want it.

And outlandishly fun Syfy experience

I pick this title up with a little expectation, just some mindless entertainment. I ended up finishing the entire book in the span of two days! The story proceeds at a breathless pace with unexpected turns around every corner. Thoroughly enjoyable

Disappointing characters

The main character lacks decisiveness and always has a monologue at critical moments that has nothing to do with the critical task. Such an indecisive character makes the storyline hard to follow.

Little bit of Firefly. Add in some Farscape. A nice serving of Star Trek, and some Melchiorri magic!

Fun ride! A plurality of species. A satisfying ending. A throwback to Star Trek, and some weed. Seriously, weed.

Anthony J. Melchiorri, thank you for writing such an enjoyable title. The joy and happiness, is a dish well received. Cheers!

Nice, little shop of horrors, good narration

Interesting battles with some very close shaves. Chacters are varied and some unusual plant life, not seen nice an 80's musical. Well worth a read and looking forward to the hoped for next chapter.
