I have enjoyed the first 2 books in the series. I like the interaction of the 4 different species. There is a nice combination of space science fiction with the wide outdoors. I enjoy how the author adapts technology to both the physical and social characteristics of each race. The story and plot I rate a 5. The writing, itself, is a bit tedious. I can handle it, because I like the story. This is definitely one of those books you want to preview. If you enjoy the first 10% (not too tedious for you), you will enjoy the series. I found it a bit difficult to follow his spaceship explanations. However, I think he has done a great job in providing a superior description of space travel and how people would cope.

I enjoyed this book. With the death of Z. A. Recht, Mr. Bebb has taken the baton available with the passing of Z A Recht and writes about the Morningstar/Keck virus. While Recht postulated the world mostly taken over by the virus, Bebb postulates a government response effective enough to contain the virus - the difference between the virus starting in Africa vs. starting in America (lots of guns really help).
So far, I haven't found any fan fiction for Bebb like there was for Recht. The 4-5 dozen Morningstar/Keck virus fanfiction stories really fleshed out the concept. Donovan's Run was an excellent novella.
This is my favorite genre of Zombies. 28DaysLater/WorldWarZ/NeoRomero would be too easy to stop. Fast zombies like the DawnOfTheDead/DayOfTheDead remakes would be unstoppable. The Morningstar/Keck virus is just right.
If you start to read this and are enjoying it, you can be encouraged to finish it because All Hallows Eve is just as good (and at a reasonable price).
