I recommend this series for the exquisitely detailed space battles and the way the main character navigates the military-turned-bureaucracy of the fleet. I can’t rightfully give it my strongest recommendation because, ultimately, it’s just candy. That is, the books are quick, easy reads but they don’t push you to think. It’s tasty but without substance. It also could have been four or five books. Despite having read the series twice, I can barely differentiate each book except the first and last.
You might wonder why I gave the series four stars when I rated two books four stars and four books three stars… this is because on the whole, I enjoyed the series and am comfortable recommending it, though with the qualifications stated above.
