    Wow! This series definitely starts off slow but takes off as each portion of the tale is told. We have seen what the aftermath of a human annihilation would bring. Then the struggle to rebuild humanity and whether or not gods and religion have a place when humanity is quickly wiped out by an unseen Sythian race who first enslaves animal like aliens to slaughter us. Only then to enslave us to fight the new Sythian plan to find the supposed mythical Avilon or as the religious humans call Etheria, Wow!

Then the struggle to rebuild humanity and whether or not gods and religion have a place when humanity is quickly wiped out by an unseen Sythian race who first enslaves animal like aliens to slaughter us. Only then to enslave us to fight the new Sythian plan to find the supposed mythical Avilon or as the religious humans call Etheria, and wipe humanity out of the galaxy forever. Only one knows that Avilon exists and where it lies hidden in the galaxy away from the Sythians. Admiral Heston being exiled from Avilon sends stepson Atton along with his most trusted XO and provides his wife Destra the location. One of the three has already been captured by the enemy and is a mole that leads the Sythians to Avilon also. Ethan Ortane and Alara are trying to enjoy their honeymoon, when the Sythians begin their invasion of dark space and the Admiral surrenders leaving a small resistance of humans and Gors to wait the help of Avilon. Ethan is then also sent to Avilon to make sure Atton has made his safe passage to get the help of Avilon, where his transport is being followed by the Sythians. The battle for revenge begins but it’s only a battle and the war will rage on.

    Great Follow-up to Dark Space Books 1 to 3 After reading the first three volumes of Dark Space, I was interested to see where Jasper Scott would take us in this saga. I was not disappointed. While you could jump into the series starting with Book 4, I would suggest reading Volumes 1 to 3 first. A lot of the character development is done there as well as the overarching story line. Revenge adds some very unexpected twists and takes the reader deeper into the religious and philosophical realm that w Great Follow-up to Dark Space Books 1 to 3 After reading the first three volumes of Dark Space, I was interested to see where Jasper Scott would take us in this saga.

Revenge adds some very unexpected twists and takes the reader deeper into the religious and philosophical realm that was started in the first three volumes. There is no shortage of military action or the ongoing relationships that evolve through the isolation of space. Once again, the author manages to leave the reader with very few (if any) loose ends (except for what the future holds).

    Wow When I started thus series I was a bit dubious about it, however it now has me firmly hooked. This book has epic, galaxy spanning fights and amazing action sequences whilst wrapping it up in one hell of a clever story. Towards the end of this book the sythians are dealt a good blow which actually made me feel good! And then the first 4 books are tied up very nicely. I can't wait to get onto book 5 now, god knows where else he can go with this now. Brilliant!

    A great series I wasn't sure about this series when I started it but now I don't want to put the down. The twists and turns are unexpected but really add to the story. Anyone who enjoys stories if people struggling and overcoming obstacles will enjoy these books. Now I have to g OK get book 5.

    So, I read the first 3 - which were in a set entitled "trilogy". Thought I was done at the end of book 3, but no there was a book 4 - which I have now finished, thinking, again, that I was done, but no, there is a book 5!! Will there be a book 6? I DON'T KNOW!! But, I am really enjoying the series so I'm not really complaining - just surprised. :)

    New places I've read a lot of sci-fi over 30 years. This book and series has genuine new ideas. The writing is enjoyable, and I'm very impressed with the author's imagination. I'll be reading more from Jasper Scott.

    This series just gets better and better plenty of space battles and twists and turns. The mystery of Avilon is finally revealed. But not until the main characters have been through the ringer a few times. Definitely would recommend this series.

    In Dark Space: Revenge, the Sythians have come to dark space to conquer humanity. Meanwhile, Admiral Heston sends a mission to get help from the Avalonians. The book got to a very, very slow start. Ethan and Illara's wedding and honeymoon were pretty boring, and they didn't really do anything for a good 2/3 of the book. When I read the first book, I thought Ethan was going to be the protagonist of the series, but he really is just a major letdown. He has zero character growth in this book (ditto In Dark Space: Revenge, the Sythians have come to dark space to conquer humanity. Meanwhile, Admiral Heston sends a mission to get help from the Avalonians. The book got to a very, very slow start. Ethan and Illara's wedding and honeymoon were pretty boring, and they didn't really do anything for a good 2/3 of the book. When I read the first book, I thought Ethan was going to be the protagonist of the series, but he really is just a major letdown. He has zero character growth in this book (ditto with Illara). Meanwhile, Aton is sent on this secret mission to find the Aviloians, but as usual, he gets relegated to the sidelines and some occasional space combat. Captain Caldron continues to be a rather loose cannon and not a particularly good leader, especially in her analytical and decision making. Overall, all of the human characters act incredibly dumb and often can't see the most obvious things in front of them. They also have a tendency to say "rikah...death and glory" every 5 minutes. The novel continues down the previous course of making things worse, worse, worse, and worst with little hope., but there is some light at the end of the tunnel. The Sythians continue to do their evil thing, and are rather flat, but at least consistent. What saves this book is Avilon...it is a rather unique and fascinating take on an ancient society, and their technology is also amazing. When we finally meet them, and when they finally face the Sythians, things aren't quite as predictable as one would have guessed. I just wished they would have appeared earlier in the book and saved the tedium that was the first half of the novel. Overall, the novel had a good resolution and for once ended on a positive note. Finally the next book might be some serious matches between Avilon and the Sythians... we shall see. Narration continued to be really good.This review was originally posted on MichaelSciFan

It has been a while since I read Book 3.

Scott. This is the fourth book in the series I have read by this author. It has been a while since I read Book 3. The book starts out with Master Commander Lenon Donali dropping out of superluminal space (SLS) near Dark Space where the last humans found refuge from the Sythians and the Gors. Now Donali was testing a Sythian implant that could be used for tracking purposes to make sure the Sythians would not find them. He decides to test the alien device on a clone to see what happens. He should have known nothing good comes from testing unknown alien devices. Admiral Hoff Heston is still in command of the ship, Valiant, a five-kilometer-long gladiator-class carrier designed to last a decade or more in space before resupply. The ship was the only one left in the Imperial Star Systems Fleet (ISSF) from the former Imperium before the Sythians from the Getties Cluster invaded and wiped them all out, except for those who escaped and are now hiding in the Dark Space region. Everything for the Sythians to finish the war revolves around finding Avilon, the home of Origin for all humans. It is rumored that trillions of humans still live on Avilon and the Sythians want to kill them all. Only a few humans know where Avilon is and Admiral Heston is one of them. The story continues to unfold as the history of Avilon and its people become known to everyone. The battle for Avilon is intense and many die. At some point in the story you will learn who “Omnius” is and what he has done for the Avilonians, which took me by surprise. It was a plot twist I did not expect. I give this story four stars because of the interesting characters, the entertaining story, the exciting space battles and the plot twists. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series called Dark Space V: Avilon to see what happens to the characters.

    Not my favorite This was not my favorite in the series. In fact, I had a hard time getting through it. People seemed so far out of character or just plain stupid. First, is Alara a Synthian human? I wouldn't be surprised. She spent the entire book whining, complaining and being a pain. Captain Corbin was all stupid when encountering the Avalonians for the first time. Got people killed with her arrogance and refusal to listen to Atton, who was the one sent to meet and talk with them. Then we get G Not my favorite This was not my favorite in the series.

Lastly, even Ethan was completely disrespectful of the people they were asking for help to save the rest of humanity. Those attitudes made absolutely no sense unless you could care less about the millions you are supposed to try to get help saving! So, yeah, all the attitude was out of place if you ask me. Oh and Atton leaving his wingman to fly out of his zone to save a pilot whose wing had already been sheared off? Ummm, no, you tell them to eject and stay with your under heavy fire wingman! Everyone was just so out of character that we had gotten to know and got stupid in the process.

I'm hoping this will be addressed in the next book in this fantastic series. I hate review's that give away key events so I'll just say I'm very glad how some things turn out. I had hoped for something similar (like maybe someone didn't do what they were asked to do) but since the result was the same, I'm a happy guy. There are still a few questions I'd like answered like; What happens to the "Bad-Guys"? Are they forgiven because "It really wasn't their fault?" And, "If we are them and they are us...Do they go there too?" Confused? Read the book. You'll be glad you did and also glad there's still more to come. by "THE HOLEY ONE"

Well, at first, I didn't feel sad so sure I was that Destra had somehow fixed his LifeLink when he had been made prisoner by the Sythians so that he would survive. But the moment when Destra sees her husband die and the sorrow she feels made me realise that he was dead "for true" and then, I felt a great deal of pain for her loss and for the passing of a complex and very fascinating character! But I couldn't help but think he will relive in a way or another... Yeahhh! I was right!! Your books are so good, Mr Scott! Thanks a lot!

    The series is just not getting it done for me. My first pet peeve - if you are going to use curse words fine, use them. Don't make up words. It sounds silly and I guess tells me the books are written for a less mature audience. If you don't feel comfortable using swears in your writing - simply don't use them. Genocide, criminal masterminds, undisciplined military, body changing, mind chipping, cloning, immortals, and an AI God complete with his own heaven and hell.

This and previous books are all over the place. It's like one of those bubble universes that spring into existence and before it develops the bubble pops. Gone. Narration is fair though some of the voices are comical and distracting. There are a lot of characters so it is quite a challenge. Oddly, I'll continue to listen to the series as new books come out just because I've gotten this far. If you've not started the series there are probably better places to go. Avoid the frustration.

    The return to the Dark Space universe in book 4 revenge. This was the best book in the series so far, a very good story line that continues on from the original trilogy. I have the feeling they have jumped from the frying pan into the fire and I am looking forward to the next book. The characters continue to develop well and the story does not rely on just one main star. That being said, I do like Ethan Ortane. He had a quiet start but came into his own in the 2nd half of the book, reminds me of The return to the Dark Space universe in book 4 revenge.

I recommend this book for all Sci Fi Space opera fans, you don't need to have read the first three books to enjoy this one, but you should as they are very good.

    Redeemed Scott made the right decision in bringing aboard an editor. The proof is in the pudding. What we're left with is a more matured, crisp story that echoes the impact of the first book. Plenty of action and fun as any Dark Space fan has come to expect, with an ever expanding universe and a promising set up for Book 5—hopefully, the stars will correlate.

    The continuing story simply gets better and better. The battle sequences keep you on the edge of your seat, and when you think the plot is resolving itself it is suddenly turned on its head. The whole series is excellent and well worth following through to the end.

    As I am more likely to believe in the existence of 'faster than light' drives than of romance, the fact that this book started with a wedding was somewhat offputting - but having read the first three - I knew to keep going, and I am so glad I did. I love the scope of the author's imagination - although I don't want to live on his version of Utopia - but it was great fun to read about it. This gets 5 stars, unusual for me to give that, but I am left really wanting to read the next one, and totally As I am more likely to believe in the existence of 'faster than light' drives than of romance, the fact that this book started with a wedding was somewhat offputting - but having read the first three - I knew to keep going, and I am so glad I did.
