This book needs to be edited, very badly...

But the characters are well thought out, and the story moves along nicely once it gets started. I found the book a slow start, but I wanted to read the story described in the intro. I read about 16% (as I recall) and was going to give up on it. I came to write a "I gave up review" and saw others saying it was worth getting through the slow start and lack of editing issues, so I read a bit more...

I finished reading it I enjoyed it. In places there are way to many words, probably 25% of the words are the author trying to capture the thought, but not coming back to clean it up. I did not find the plot development and story lines around the children to be plausible, but the rest of the story worked well.

With editing this would be a 5 star, work, with movie potential. As is I can only give 3 stars, it REALLY needs to be edited! But it is a good story

It took me three starts to get into this book but something made me want to keep trying and I’m happy I did as it is such a great story. The main characters are well drawn as we slowly get to know them and I look forward to continuing to get to know them in upcoming stories and I hope more attention will be given to others lightly touched on. One thing that is troubling and somewhat annoying is the misuse of English throughout the book. I don’t think English is the author’s first language and he desperately needs a good editor to make this great book amazing! This book is also quite long, but not needlessly so. In fact, I think this book could have been fleshed out into two books easily without losing integrity. I’m looking forward to the next segment! For those of you who care, there is SOME profanity and no sex. Thank you, Mr. Carty! (Editing-4 stars, story-5 stars!!!)

Review by: Ted Scott on Dec. 31, 2012 :
This book is entertaining, but uninvolving, primarily due to the total lack of reasonably correct English grammar and the garbling of many common sayings in English. I was unable to finish reading it. After about 25% I could no longer continue reading while having to insert all the pronouns and rework the tenses of virtually every sentence. The story appears sound and interesting but the misuse of the English language and the lack of any proper editing makes it impossible to recommend this book.

I absolutely loved this book! It is so rich with characters that you know so well they become almost like family. Fast paced but not rushed, realistic scenarios, tactically coherent, and technologically feasible.
It is amazing that for such a long book, which I love, it doesn't waste time with flowery or poetic language or spend three pages describing someone's reflections on inane scenery.
It is a rich feast for the reader and features morsels from all of the SciFi food groups.
This is a book that I will highly recommend to friends and family.

Although this book still needs editing due to some misspelling and minor mistakes it is one of the best stories I've read on Smashwords! The characters and storylines are intense interesting and original. Great story! Long but you cannot beat it! Can't wait till the sequel, hope it's out soon!

Great book. I enjoyed the story; it was unique and original. I also loved the characters, both human, alien and technological. However you lost a star with me over the poor editing. I almost deleted it after the first few chapters but my love of the story kept me going. Some parts have obviously been revised (or the writing improved) with better spelling, appropriate use of punctuation and more flowing sentence structure. Fix it up and you will have a truly great book.
