    I enjoyed this novel despite a few quibbles. Mr. Renneberg's prose is pretty good as are his characterization skills. His pacing was fast and enjoyable. The copy editing had a few problems with homonyms and the odd case error. The world building was not always deeply thought through, but it is an interesting universe even so.

    FantasticAlready one of my favorite sci fi books, and one of the best books I've read in years. The plot is great, the flow of the book is pitch perfect, the characters are a lot of fun, and the details are extremely well thought out.Can't wait for book 2!

    Stephen Renneberg captures the same fun as Guardians of the Galaxy with the tale of Sirius Kade, free trader with his own ship, and former spy for the Earth Intelligence Service. Earth was cut off from galactic civilization for a thousand years when fanatics blew up their ship on a galactic world. With only fifty years left of the current five century probation period, Earth is eager to prevent other incidents. So Syrius is reactivated when something is heard of a potential incident. The trail leads to the Mcguffin of the tale, The Antaran Codex (ebook from Amazon Digital Services, Inc which I bought) which is up for bid. But the aliens who where hurt with the first incident, the Matarons have an evil plan that involves the Codex and one of the buyers. Sirius has to risk his ship and his crew, first stealing the Codex, then restealing it, then stopping the final crew from destroying a low-tech world. The action is fast and furious and the background shear fun. I hope there’s a sequel.Review Published by Philadelphia Weekly Press

    Largely action-packed and straightforward, it reads almost like a Doctor Who plot but without the twists and turns (sadly). A fast read, I thought that the various alien species created were interesting and there were even some funny parts. I can't help but wish for greater depth though, as someone who has always loved crime novels. Nonetheless I would recommend this for anyone who enjoys a fast sci-fi novel and loves reading about the hero escaping just barely from dangerous situations. Oh and I really enjoyed the descriptions of technology, especially with the bioengineering!Disclaimer: I was fortunate enough to obtain a copy through the First Reads program. (Thank you.)

    It was surprisingly good. I was expecting something much cheaper and more...rip-off-ish (is that even a word?), but I found myself enjoying the book. It was fun, the story was cool...the main character was mostly fun, though some of the other characters seemed to be...a bit simple. I got irritated by his girlfriend for being an idiot who complicated the whole plot a lot. I'd say, if she wasn't involved, it might be more believable. This romance seemed flat. The rest however was fun, fast, and filled with possibilities, as many open-world sci-fi books are.

    nefarious aliens and a woefully outclassed human civilization. I liked the backdrop for this story more than the story. The characters were flat, and I did not really care about any of them. The universe that Renneberg has created is the most interesting part of this book. I love the idea of a scrappy human race just barely holding on against all the odds. That said, I would like to care a little about some of the characters.

    The Antaran Codex.......The Antaran Codex.......A lot of fun.....exciting action, handwritten characters who have a basic decency, wise as well as despicable aliens, interstellar as well as personal action......what more could anyone want?ENJOY! Great Entertainment.

    This is in my top5 of Space Operas. It's fast paced story, without a dull moment. Crafted around MacGuffin, which turns out to be a Red Haring, Before Deus ex Machina (or is it Alien ex Machina)ends the story. But man is it well crafted.

    Intriguing first novel.Somewhat reminiscent of a Banks Culture novel in terms of the Universe being created, but a little grittier. Looking forward to the second book to see how the author develops the themes established in the opening novel.

    The best sci-fi/space opera /humans trying to find their way in a galaxy of way more powerful/ancient races, not all of which have our best interests in mind.

    An addicting action packed story. A bit simple in story but who cares since it's a nice reading.

    Reads like a video game in many places (especially at the beginning with the game tutorial-ish data dumps) but very fun with a lot of very interesting places to take the universe.
