Now the Defiant's last hope for a rescue is gone, and everyone on board is about to die a cold, dark death. HUMANS ARE STILL FIGHTING EACH OTHER 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.

    Holy Freck that was epic. This was the last book in the trilogy. Just the right amount of books, great characters, plot twists that left me gasping. Lots of frustration as the humans fight amongst themselves while hostile aliens want to kill them all. A ridiculous yet ruthless villain. I can't think of a space opera I've enjoyed more.

    An epic sci-fi space opera in the vein of the Battlestar Galactica television show, the Dark Space series from Jasper T. Scott (@JasperTScott) features thrilling space battles and a multitude of twisty sub-plots arising from humanity’s fight for survival a decade after the devastating invasion of the alien Sythians pushed human survivors into a hidden corner of the galaxy: Dark Space. The second book in the series, Dark Space: The Invisible War ended with every major character facing crisis, and An epic sci-fi space opera in the vein of the Battlestar Galactica television show, the Dark Space series from Jasper T. Scott (@JasperTScott) features thrilling space battles and a multitude of twisty sub-plots arising from humanity’s fight for survival a decade after the devastating invasion of the alien Sythians pushed human survivors into a hidden corner of the galaxy: Dark Space. The second book in the series, Dark Space: The Invisible War ended with every major character facing crisis, and Dark Space: Origin wastes no time getting the reader back into the action and drama surrounding the Ortane family. Ethan Ortane, a convicted smuggler who was blackmailed into carrying out a devastating attack that crippled the remaining human fleet keeping Dark Space safe, and his teenage son Atton languish in jail after being accused of treason for impersonating the Overload, the leader of humans in Dark Space. Ethan’s attack left the capital starship Valiant in the hands of crime boss Alec Brondi, who never met another human he wouldn’t sacrifice for his own gain. After barely surviving the Sythian attack on her homeworld, Ethan’s wife Destra escapes and lands on a barely habitable planet in the company of a fleet admiral who plays a central role in the third installment of the book. After Hoff Heston and Destra are rescued, he will go on to lead the military contingent that remained outside of Dark Space, evading the Sythians who have cloaking technology. Heston and the Overlord — first Atton and then Ethan Ortane in disguise — disagree on several issues, most centrally the trustworthiness of the alien Gors, a deadly race enslaved by the Sythians but who now fight alongside the Dark Space humans. Paying off on plot points raised in the first two books, Dark Space: Origin delves into politics, the nature of humanity, family, loss and love, in much the same vein as quality sci-fi works as Battlestar Galactica. Although some of it dips close to soap opera territory, the pace never flags for long and action scenes both large and small are both exciting and well-executed. The ending is satisfying as I thought it nicely tied up all loose ends, but to my surprise there is a fourth book in the works. After sampling the provided chapter from the next installment in the series, I’m looking forward to reading it. For more about the author and his writing, visit his website.

There are so many surprise changes and shifts that I think it's important to minimize interruptions while reading this book. With a lot of the technological advances being made today in Science and Medicine there will be many moralistic issues to be addressed. With people living longer and longer lives and less premature death to disease and illness the Earth's population will grow to unsupportable levels. It is already happening in many parts of the World. This book confronts some of these issues and I found myself thinking: "Hmmm, Yeah, That's a real possibility". by "THE HOLEY ONE"

    The title may be slightly deceiving as it doesn’t completely cover the origin of humans more than we really discover the origin of Admiral Heston (Hoff).

This has to be the best of the first three as we discover the origin of every mini storyline and how each character comes to be as we know them now. Everyone is searching for answers but it doesn’t take long for Ethan and his son Atton be reunited with Destra but it’s not the reunion they we’re expecting. Destra has moved on, but I believe part of her would not have completely moved on had she not discovered Ethan with Alara and being told that Atton was in the netherworlds. It’s hard for anyone to trust anyone or should I say no one trusts anyone except for Ethan and Atton and Atton and Destra. The humans have tried to align themselves with the Gors but neither side really trusts each other especially after Hoff destroys their relationship. No one can trust Brondi, the criminal overlord but that is turned around when the common enemy, the Synthians attack and almost take over if not for alliances with those who believe they are enemies. Which adds to the title Origin, the new alliance between the Humans and Gors, between Imperium forces and criminals. And the origin of a new love story of Ethan and Alara! This book has it all! Space, violence, betrayal and love.

    Very good ! Towards the end of the second book I was a bit concerned that the third would not be able to keep up. I was very wrong, this book is very faced paced with lots of secrets and epic space battles. The revelation chapter was a specific example of the brilliant writing of Jasper T.Scott.

    I had to go back and re-read part 2, before starting part 3. It was just a bit too long ago that I had picked up the story and I needed a refresher. I would not suggest one wait too long between segments. The parts are all closely knit together and is best enjoyed in a batch. A culmination of the events in the previous two stories. It does tie up all of the loose ends from the previous books. These first three books should be read as a single work for maximum enjoyment.

I was not a big fan of the "holoskin" approach, but it worked well enough in the end. I am not sure that I will be continuing this series. This book also sets up events for continuing the series with other adversaries. There is a lot of twists and turns in this series. Have a GoodReads.

Mr. Scott is a relatively new author and this series is very popular in the UK as well as the US according Amazon.com website. Dark Space III: Origin starts with Ethan’s wife, Destra, and her companion, Hoff, trying to stay alive and wait for rescue on a frozen planet called Ritan where they have been stranded for three years since fleeing the Sythians. It is a constant battle for survival. Meanwhile, Ethan Ortane is in the brig on the Defiant for impersonating the Supreme Overlord Altarian Dominic. Deck Commander Loba Caldin is now in charge of the Defiant and ordered the arrest of Ethan and others for their roles in the loss of the Valiant and crew. The fate of the Imperium is now in jeopardy since the discovery of the Overlord deceptions. Alec Brondi has captured the Valiant, but he is under attack from the inside by an unseen foe. His plan is to destroy the Defiant and all those under Admiral Hoff’s command so he can rule Dark Space and the rest of humanity. Of course, the Sythians and the Gors are still determined to eliminate all of humanity once they find them. The war escalates to the point of destructive space battles between the two human camps and between the humans and the aliens. It seems as if humanity will destroy itself before the aliens do. As the plot thickens another story line or theme develops that took me by surprise. It concerns the “Origin” of the human race and how the human race evolved. This theme starts to take over the original story as found in books one and two. It will be interesting to see how this develops in book four. I give this story four stars because of the interesting characters, the twisting plot lines and the exciting space battle action scenes. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series called Dark Space IV: Revenge to see what happens to the characters.

    For a good 2/3 of the book, this story took the same tact as its predecessor and just piling on the bleakness. Nothing ever goes right for anyone, and things just keep getting more and more depressing. Everything you hope would happen as a reader doesn't. But then, finally, things start taking a turn for the better. The subplots about Brondi, Admiral Hoff, Ethan/Atton/Destra, Illara, the Defiant, and the Valiant are finally resolved.

I listened to the audiobook, and as usual, the narrator does a fine job. His kid voices are incredibly annoying, but otherwise, he does a fine job.

There are several well developed characters. Some are clearly good guys, some are clearly bad guys and some are hard to classify. But, all of them are flawed in some way - very human. There is love and betrayal. There are devious plots and unsolved mysteries. There are even moral issues to make the reader ponder their own beliefs. Thankfully the trilogy stands on its own and you're not left with unanswered questions or a cliff-hanger ending. Well maybe there are some unanswered questions, because Scott has created a universe that is rich with possibilities which makes you ask, "Where will he go next?"

    Not as good as the previous books in the series. Instead of finishing the story properly it tries to do too much and as a result turns into a bit of a mess, going from one desperate situation to the next to keep the action going.

I personally didn't care much for the 'revelation' at the end that is supposed to explain what everything is really about. I hoped for a conclusive ending but (as often is the case) all that really happens is that the scope of the danger increases by an order of magnitude and much of the revelations are merely a setup for the next book. Be that as it may I still think that this series is a welcome distraction from the more 'serious' SF I tend to pick. 71/100

    Would have been a perfect ending! This book was so much better than the last and it read like the series ending. Things are happy now, but we know that can't last. Those tricky Synthians and their ability to look human are sure to become a huge problem soon. This book had lots of nightingale action, but also a lot of human drama and politics. It even threw in some romance... finally! There was nothing not to love about this book. It's a page Turner and now maybe I can finally get a little sleep Would have been a perfect ending!

    A good end to the space saga trilogy. Book three pulled together the previous two and wrapped up all the story lines nicely. Good characters and well developed over the three books. The books do not rely on just a few main characters but has a large cast, a bit like another great space saga, Star Wars. I look forward to the next instalment and recommend this book to space lovers, especially if you enjoyed the Star Wars X wing books by Michael A. Stackpole.

    The third story in this series continues with the previous action and adventure to reveal some unexpected conclusions. The story and writing simply get better as the plots progress. The only negative comment I could make is that the repeated pictures of spaceships at the beginning of each chapter are somewhat tedious and unnecessary. However the story is well worth a read and I look forward to the next instalment. Keep up the good work and keep us guessing.

    I think this was by far the best book of the series. Less focus on extraneous characters and more focus on building the story. The series as a whole is good. The characterizations are better although more focus on Ethan's character would be a welcome addition. Overall a very enjoyable read and I am now very much looking forward to the next book

    WOW.. this series takes off in book 3, I took a break from it after book two, seemed a bit simple... but it was all precursor to a pretty amazing story that begins to venture far from Dark Space. The series jumps into every manner of space fiction from teleporting to planet building, but the Artificial Intelligence aspect is by far the most interesting. Anyhow, read this it's really good.

    Like the other two, not great. Some interesting plot bits, but felt te story was wildly inconsistent in where it was going, and what the story was about. Also required a crazy huge suspension of disbelief that was hard to maintain.

    Scott has pulled off a great story, multiple plots within plots. He develops great charecters with depth. The action is mostly non stop but never failed to contribute to the overall storyline. This has been a most enjoyable series and I do look forward to continuing the journey.

    I really enjoyed Dark Space Two. This is an engrossing story and well written. I would like more deatil on the starships and cloaking technology. Also subtle reminders of the holoskinners and their identities and events in past books would help. I can't wait for the third book!
