    One thought on “Apex”

    1. *Disclaimer - I'm a Harper Voyager Super Reader, which means that I am occasionally given early access to books for reviewing purposes. I'm not compensated in any way, other than the pleasure of reading stuff that the general public hasn't been given access to yet.* It’s been eons since humans controlled the universe. Defeated by a mysterious enemy, the downfall of humanity brought about a virtual dark age, with culture and technology stagnating in its absence. But now, trade is once again flo [...]

    2. I was pleasantly surprised by this novel, it has a compelling and intriguing plot. A great deal of imagination and creativity is evident and the author has set a great stage for what promises to be an excellent series. I eagerly await the next installment! My only real criticism is that the book could do with a better editor. Other than that, great work.

    3. While Apex does some interesting things—like presenting a post-humanity galaxy—it just doesn't have enough to make it a winner. I found the characters to be annoying, the plot relatively predictable, and the writing to be unexceptional. There's nothing bad about the book, but it just doesn't stand out in many ways.One of the most interesting things that I found irritated me in this book was (view spoiler)[the behavior of Riax after he's brought back out of stasis. He immediately goes into fu [...]

    4. I don't quite understand what the fuss is about this book, but apparently the serial novellas or shares some creative DNA with its popular? The writing is somewhat clunky, with odd adverb usage, overly baroque descriptions of technology with pretensions of scientific rigor but no actual rigor to be found. The characters are mostly flat, though the first viewpoint character is interesting enough. An entire species seems to have interchangeable members, in the sense that none of them are distingui [...]

    5. f you love Science Fiction that goes into a lot of technical detail you will love Apex. I am not that into the technical so for me it made for a slow reading. This is also book one in a series so it had a lot of ground to cover. The goal of getting the human to Cres territory was met but that still left a lot hanging.Apex required quite a lot of world building and back story. Most of the time it did not slow the plot down. There is one important part for the back story that is still unknown but [...]

    6. Juvenile sci-fi full of what I have no doubt is projection from the author. It reads as a full on circle jerk for humanity and presents a teenagers view on relationships and women. The overall world is interesting enough but the writers bland technical writing style brings nothing to it. This book presents the only human as incredibly intelligent, powerful, the only hope for the galaxy, attractive to every alien species, witty, and so on and so forth as the author builds up this being too be eve [...]

    7. Good story. I looked forward to reading this book each evening and to finding out what was happening with the main character Jalia. I was a little disappointed when the viewpoint switched from Jalia to Riax about 3/4 of the way through. Jalia and Riax are both complex characters but I found Jalia to be a little more interesting. I hope her story continues in the next book in the series. One very slight drawback is that there were a few grammar and editing problems and a few made-up words ("panic [...]

    8. I really enjoyed this book until Riax showed up. As soon as someone called him "smoking hot" I knew it was all downhill from here. Don't get me wrong, I still enjoyed the book overall but it seemed liked Riax had an answer for every problem and was condescending 99.9 % of the time to everyone. If all humans were like that I can see why the enemy wanted to bring down the human empire! All the other characters/races of aliens were pretty intriguing (when they weren't falling all over themselves to [...]

    9. Space opera/melodramatic and ehhhhhhh.Very much a soft science fiction space opera. Telepathy, made up physics, colorful lasers, random magic at the speed of plot. Interbreedable aliens and so on. Better than anything I could write but still very ehhhhhh. Save your money I would say.

    10. I liked it. Actually, I thought it was awesome. I'm really glad to hear the story is going to continue. I've never read a story about humans like this and found it fascinating and kind of inspiring. Great story.
