This trilogy is standalone from the sequels. Dark Space I HUMANITY IS DEFEATED Ten years ago the Sythians invaded the galaxy with one goal: to wipe out the human race. THEY ARE HIDING Now the survivors are hiding in the last human sector of the galaxy: Dark Space--once a place of exile for criminals, now the last refuge of mankind. THEY ARE ISOLATED The once galaxy-spanning Imperium of Star Systems is left guarding the gate which is the only way in or out of Dark Space--but not everyone is satisfied with their governance. AND THEY ARE KILLING EACH OTHER Freelancer and ex-convict Ethan Ortane is on the run. He owes crime lord Alec Brondi 10,000 sols, and his ship is badly damaged. When Brondi catches up with him, he makes an offer Ethan can't refuse. Ethan must infiltrate and sabotage the Valiant, the Imperial Star Systems Fleet carrier which stands guarding the entrance of Dark Space, and then his debt will be cleared. While Ethan is still undecided about what he will do, he realizes that the Imperium has been lying and putting all of Dark Space at risk. Now Brondi's plan is starting to look like a necessary evil, but before Ethan can act on it, he discovers that the real plan was much more sinister than what he was told, and he will be lucky to escape the Valiant alive. . . . Dark Space II: The Invisible War THEIR SHIP IS DAMAGED Ethan Ortane has just met his long lost son, Atton, but the circumstances could have been better. After a devastating bio-attack and the ensuing battle, they've fled Dark Space aboard the Defiant to get away from the crime lord, Alec Brondi, who has just stolen the most powerful vessel left in the Imperial Star Systems' Fleet--the Valiant, a five-kilometer-long gladiator-class carrier. THEY ARE LOW ON FUEL They need reinforcements to face Brondi, but beyond Dark Space the comm relays are all down, meaning that they must cross Sythian Space to contact the rest of the fleet. Making matters worse, they are low on fuel. They'll have to travel on the space lanes to save fuel, but the lanes are controlled by Sythians, and they are fraught with entire fleets of cloaked alien ships. Dark Space III: Origin THE DEFIANT IS STRANDED Ethan and his son, Atton, have been arrested for high treason and conspiracy, crimes which will surely mean the death sentence, but it's beginning to look like theirs aren't the only lives in jeopardy--the Defiant is stranded in Sythian Space, and the vessel which Commander Caldin sent to get help has used all its fuel to get to Obsidian Station, only to find out that the station has been destroyed. Now the Defiant's last hope for a rescue is gone, and everyone on board is about to die a cold, dark death. HUMANITY IS STILL FIGHTING ITSELF Meanwhile, the notorious crime lord, Alec Brondi, is plotting to capture the remnants of Admiral Hoff's fleet, just as he captured the Valiant, but Hoff's men are on to him, and Brondi is about to get a lot more than he bargained for, forcing him to flee to the one place he knows will be safe--Dark Space. AND A NEW INVASION IS ABOUT TO BEGIN But Dark Space is only safe because the alien invaders don't know exactly where it is, and now they have a plan to find it which will threaten not only Dark Space, but the entire human race.

    The entire trilogy was pure entertainment. "Space Opera" at its finest...in other words... Junk food for the brain. As such, they were well-written, with interesting characters and plot lines. The interplay between the various characters and the different factions in this sector of space was sometimes confusing. I am an avid reader, but I still had to pay attention to what I was reading. The technical details and the warfare scenes were interesting. No spoilers, but the last section of this book The entire trilogy was pure entertainment.

    Nice sci-fi There was a lot going on in the beginning so I didn't quite understand what was happening. Ethan faces a criminal cartel on one side and an evil space empire on the other. Seems like a loss-lose situation. Fortunately, he wasn't in it alone. The series really grew on me over the course of the three books to the point where I had a hard time putting it down. This series is complete on its own but left plenty of room for more in this setting. Worth the read.

    Superb Space Opera This is a superb space opera full to the brim with action spanning across galaxies. With humanity facing complete destruction fighting against an unstoppable enemy. A reluctant hero must fight to save the people he cares about against almost impossible odds Would definitely recommend this

    Dark Space 1-3 This story was just about everything you want in a really good action adventure. The author has put together three stories which have been more than one should be allowed to ask for.

    Space opera at its best Though the plot alternates between rambling and hyperspace, overall the trilogy is a good sci-fi romp. There are areas that are over explained and others barely glossed. Still it was A good series introduction for a new author in my library

    These were interesting to read. However, with the technical details and the twists in the different character plots, it was challenging to read and follow at times. I felt like there were almost too many different twists to the characters.

    It's been a long time since I read a science fiction novel and I wasn't sure I would last the course, particularly when I saw the illustrations of the various space ship at the start of each chapter - I felt it would be too technical for me. However I found it a really engrossing story and happily continued reading through each book in the trilogy to find out what happened to each of the characters. I look forward to reading the 4th book later this year!

    I downloaded this (free) ebook was because I needed a break from my usual historical fiction and because it seemed to have some decent reviews. Seems I was mistaken. Starting with some positives, I'll give this trilogy the benefit of the doubt: somewhere in there are the elements of a decent story, with some surprising twists and consistent action. Unfortunately, that all lies beneath a mess that is in desperate need of more editing.

Starting with some positives, I'll give this trilogy the benefit of the doubt: somewhere in there are the elements of a decent story, with some surprising twists and consistent action. Unfortunately, that all lies beneath a mess that is in desperate need of more editing. The flow was disrupted by long, technical descriptions which weren't always necessary - there's only so much I want to know about a spaceship other than the fact that it's big and has a lot of guns. There's a lot of telling (over and over again), and too little of simply showing. It's frequently excessively wordy (don't get me started on those 'frekking' neologisms) and ultimately left me thinking 'filler'. The dialogue was so stilted that I couldn't picture the conversations actually happening. Characters are repeatedly described/introduced, often using the same words, even if they were present just a scene or two ago - trust your reader to remember who is related to who, and what they vaguely look like, even if they are minor characters! Speaking of relatives, there were fair too many coincidences given the unfathomable size of space. The main hero's long-lost wife just so happens to be married to the Admiral and his co-pilot is the daughter of a famous professor the crime lord blackmailed into service? Hmm yes, do continue whilst I struggle to sustain my disbelief. And sustain your disbelief you must, otherwise you won't make it through this trilogy without clawing your eyes out. One quote towards the end of the third book that I couldn't help but smirk at: "The explanation which followed went past the point of credulity and challenged everything Ethan thought he knew about human history" (emphasis added) Sounds about right.

    depends on what your looking for I find that science fiction comes in two categories, the scientifically accurate and the storyteller. This is mainly a storyteller novel. and a darn fine one too. I actually got sad when i finished it because i wanted more. While i did not find the science behind everything to be totally accurate but it was accurate enough to be able to make up the rest.

Even coming up with a full glossary of terms, ships, and technology that would be foreign knowledge to the reader. I found myself totally engrossed in the story line and the characters. Another talent that Mr. Scott seemed to have is the ability to keep me guessing. That is a rare talent. More that once i would think to myself, "he's a holoskinner too" or "She's going to die before she finds out the truth". I think that is the real reason i enjoyed these books so much. If i can continually guess what is going to happen next then the story becomes blaise and more than a little boring. Yes, this was more of a story teller book, not a technical marvel.

    Interesting but overly technical I enjoyed the plot and all of the side plots and different characters but felt the human element with the relationships between the main characters was unbelievable in that amount of vast distance and significant events that the characters would tie up so neatly.

Parts of the trilogy were overly technical in description and took away from the flow of the books. I'm a well educated nerd and still had trouble understanding parts of the space flight and spacecraft descriptions, and didn't find the detailed descriptions helpful, so I eventually skipped paragraphs at a time when I came to them. I enjoyed the trilogy but eventually tired of it and just wanted to see it to the end.

    I really like the story line. Humans trying to survive after near catastrophic war with the Sythians. The character development was very good. You got to know the characters pretty well, although there were a few surprises. A few times the story lost my interest maybe due to a lot of technobabble. I think if I had read the books as they had come out instead of all at once I wouldn't have felt this way. There was a big twist at the end which I wasn't expecting.

    Since I had many books queued up to read, my original plan was just to read book one, but I found that I had to find out what happened, so I ended up reading the trilogy. Even though I could see some parallels to Star Trek, I loved the imagination of the author with all the new terminology and places. Well written; definitely a must read

    I enjoyed the first 2 books of this trilogy but, about half way through the 3rd book I was ready for it to be over. The third book just introduced too much new stuff and I didn't feel as connected to the characters as I had earlier. Others may feel differently however so feel free to give this a try.

    This series is fantastic! I could not put these books down. The characters have depth, and the story is filled with surprising twists and non-stop action. I highly recommend this series.

    I really liked it. There were some great characters, plenty of action, and some good story arcs that made me want to stay up reading instead of what I should have been doing, sleeping. I even took it to work to sneak in a few pages.

    Sometime the story is a bit hard to believe and I had a few time the feeling that something didn't make sense with what was written before but overall I still enjoyed the trilogy
