The U.S. Merrimack was the finest battleship class spaceship in Earth's fleet, able to stand up against the best the Palatine Empire could throw at them, even able to survive attack by swarms of the seemingly unstoppable Hive. But nothing could have prepared the captain and crew of the Merrimack for what they were about to face: three colonized worlds--the Myriad--in the midst of a globular cluster that the Hive somehow overlooked.… (mais)

Ship commander who's hunting 'the myriad' discovers a space time anomaly and a planet that is using the anomaly and dooms their existance.

I do not understand why this book gets so many 4 and 5 star reviews.

The ending, which I know doesn't appeal to some people, do not disturb me that much but...

The author really has little understanding of science which makes the fictional science less believable. For instance openable gunports and manually loaded guns on, what is supposed to be, a futuristic space battleship. Come on!

She has absolutely zero military knowledge which makes the military action just plain dumb. To add to the latter she makes the military personnel unbelievably stupid.

The LEN are, unbelievable as it is, even more stupid than the military which is just a nuisance. A nice depiction of todays useless UN carried into the future though!

The read is not a total disaster which is why it gets 2 stars instead of 1 and I will try to get through the rest of the trilogy (update: I first thought this was a trilogy but now I realize there's at least one more book in the series) just since I want to complete things but my hopes for this trilogy are not that high any more.

I kind of liked this in spite of myself.
I do enjoy old-school military SF/space opera, as long as the women aren't too hideously portrayed, and well, it was kind of hideous but I still liked it.
I don't know. I'm reading the next one anyway. ( )

I started off not really getting into this novel. I actually put it aside, read a few other books and then for some crazy reason I ended up reading the second novel = which I loved enough to make me want to try reading The Myriad again. Having the second novel in my head was the impetous I needed to continue past where I left off, and this seemed to do the trick. I absolutely loved The Myriad.

I loved the dialogue, the characters and even those crazy plot twists - which, though at first I felt so confused (having read the second book first), when I remembered that I was reading a SciFi book, it all became much clearer. I read The Myriad within a couple of days; I was absorbed by it.

It has it all - fun dialogue, unrequited love, suspense, adventure, fighting and gore, SciFi twists and turns and just plain fun. There's this far into the future war with the Roman Empire vs The United States...not a lot of other countries are mentioned though - but the main plot is this war with the Romans and Earth both trying to get as many planets claimed as possible and the addition of this type of gorging eating monster hive thing. This hive is comprised of millions and millions of eating bugs that seem to have no other purpose than eating - eating anything organic; food, people, wood, plants, each other....anything. And they can travel in space, seemingly impervious to weapons....ugh. Makes cockroaches and pirhanas seem tame in comparison.

Now that I've read the second and first, I'm off to read the third in this series... ( )

This book is horrible. The characters aren't interesting, the plot is alright, but the ending ruins the entire book.

I don't recommend it. ( )
