Odysseus Ascendant (Odyssey One #7) Reviews
"Odysseus Ascendant" eBook was published in 2018 and was written by Evan Currie (http://evancurrie.ca). Mr. Currie has published more than 20 novels. This is the seventh in his "Odyssey One" series.

The story is set in the far future. The primary character is Commodore Eric Weston of the Priminae/Eart ...more
Another good book in the series
Everything that is good and enjoyable about this series continues in this book. However, I was a bit let down at the surprise ending. I didn’t feel it was up to the standard I have come to expect from the previous books.
I certainly hope that there are more books in this series coming! The Empire has turned up the heat and is making life difficult for the Terran forces and their Priminae allies. Central, Gaia and the ship, Odysseus, are still still unexplained but are major characters and we get to meet another one of their kind who seems to need an attitude adjustment. What happens next?
I enjoyed the new tech. Overall this was another good addition. I read it in a day or two. Not a lot of character depth, just space ships and space battles with a little intrigue mixed in. Definitely more about the tech than the people. I wanted more from the entities.
Nihilism vs idealism
The rise and fall of the Roman Empire. Nero fiddled while Rome burned, still duty to an ideal was greater than the cynical views of Roman nobility. The were some real pearls of wisdom thank you for some great military SF.
A terrific read! Ties nicely in with an earlier book or two...but you gotta read it to find out
Read it, and you will be pleased. It Tues in with past books, and brings together the.... Nope, won't say...that would spoil the read...enjoy!
Excellent, another fine addition to this series.
This has been a wonderful space opera and it leaves you waiting for the next book in the series with real impatience. Hurry up Mr Currie. Lol
Currie gives us another good military SF book, extending his Odyssey series to book seven. This time, the Empire is coming with an entire sector fleet. They aren't messing around.
I am now tagging these books as fantasy as well as military and science fiction, because some fantastical (as in mythic) characters have started taking important roles.
In my opinion, not as gripping as some of the earlier books in the series. 3.5 stars.
