on July 4, 2015 :
I am quite surprised that there are so far no reviews for this book. I think I found this book by searching Google for "hard science fiction" and "colonization".
I downloaded the sample and was immediately captivated upon starting the book. It has everything I was looking for, action, technology, science and plenty of excitement!
I reached the end of the free sample and rushed to my computer to download the remaining 80% of the book.
I cannot say how it continues but I decided to write a review of this point to encourage other readers to give it a try.
I will try to remember to finish this review when I am done with the book.
