I did not know what to expect. It was described to me as "science fiction romance." Yes, it's romance. But it's the BEST kind of romance--that sort which begins with PEOPLE, builds on your love of the characters, leads you to places where you can envision what may happen--and then leaves certain things to your imagination. Simply put, the Armada series is romantic story-telling at its best, against a science fiction backdrop that is fascinating and easy to understand--even for a sci-fi newbie like me. It is adventure and romance similar to that of Alexandre Dumas or Jane Austen--the type that makes you want to read the books again and again.

Take frequent restroom breaks while reading this tale, else your pants may need changing due to uncontrolled laughter at times. Think of a space-faring race settling for a while in rural Oklahoma--in the early 60s no less. This volume brought tears of laughter to my face as I read it. The depth of the book can make you smell the loam of the fields. The mistakes made by the team as they try to learn "American" english and some of the word likenesses to "bad words" in thier own language make the reader laugh so hard it hurts.
