    " Modern Space Opera. Not bad but not E. E. Smith either. Too much realism cholesterol, but acceptable as a diversion on airplane flights "

    " A solid follow up to Douglas's first book. I really enjoyed the additional character development, and building contact with the various alien species. "

    " I really enjoyed this book, Ian Douglas really drew me in with the second book in the Star Carrier Series. The creativity that Mr. Douglas uses in creating alien races, and advanced technology is what really catches my interest about this series. A transcended alien race commanding other advanced races to annihilate humanity, the Sh'daar. Humanity, evolving through genetic experimentation and Nanotechnological innovation must take the fight to the enemy. This is a great read, I really like the explanations Mr. Douglas throws in about the technology, it makes this a thinking man's Sci-Fi thriller. "

    " For a space warfare sci-fi, this has a lot of great imaginative hard sci and futurism in it. Very entertaining and lots of good sci-fi ideas per dollar considering the military space opera genre. I'm enjoying it a lot. "

    " Decent story, the story moves along at a great clip. I'll read book three and then give Mr. Douglas a rest for a while before trying out his other series. The story just doesn't vary very much from book to book and the formula is exactly the same for all the most important characters. "

    " This book was a very entertaining and enjoyable read... could have been slightly-less jargon heavy, but if you can make your way past that, you get a really good sci-fi military space battle. I'm definitely reading the next book in the series. "

    " The middle book of the trilogy wherein action moves out of Human space and battle is taken to the enemy. Will have to read the final volume to see how the war plays out. Fun battle scenes (if you are into those). "

    " The whole series is a good fast read, heavy on the tech side and very light on the characters "

    " I love space operas, but what makes Center of Gravity: Star Carrier good is the author's excellent description of space battles, and space aliens. He put's you out there with the space fighters in the center of the action. if you like science fiction, you'll love this book. "

    " A worthy continuation of the first book. This series is like one story broken into three parts. Yes, I would recommend this too. It's not the Forever War, but it is good! "
