This edition of Odyssey One has been completely edited and remastered to correct the typos and content issues that reviewers commented on in the original edition.

Beyond the confines of our small world, far from the glow of our star, lies a galaxy and universe much larger and more varied than anyone on Earth can possibly imagine. For the new NAC spacecraft Odyssey and her crew, the unimaginable facets of this untouched world are about to become reality.

The Odyssey’s maiden voyage is an epic adventure destined to make history. Captain Eric Weston and his crew, pushing past the boundaries of security, encounter horrors, wonders, monsters, and people, all of which will test their resolve, challenge their abilities, and put in sharp relief what is necessary to be a hero.

A first-rate military science fiction epic that combines old-school space opera and modern storytelling, Into the Black: Odyssey One is a riveting, exhilarating adventure with vivid details, rich mythology, and relentless pacing that will leave you breathlessly awaiting book two.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael Pearce | 2/19/2014

    " This book starts out a little rough. Despite the fact that I apparently read the re-edited/remastered version the first few chapters contained some conspicuous editing and continuity errors. I didn't give up on it though, and I am glad that I did not, because most of these errors disappeared as the book progressed and the story built momentum. It just got better the further that I read, until at the end it was pulse-pounding, page turning military science fiction as good as any that I have read. If you like John Ringo, Elizabeth Moon or David Weber buy this book,read it and stick with it past the initial glitches. I guarantee that you wont be sorry that you did. "

    " I don't read a lot of straight up space fairing Sci-Fi. This book has changed that at least a little. Being an ex-Navy man, reading this book felt 'real'. I don't know if Even has any nautical experience, but he was able to make the descriptions of ship-board life feel right and reminded me of many a General Quarters drill. The action and suspense was balanced well, and I really can't wait to find out more of the history of this universe and who the different groups of Humans were separated. What is the Path that Earth dwellers seem to have forgotten and what are the Drasin really up to? "

    " Very good, engaging and entertaining, space opera at its best "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Lefevre | 1/29/2014

    " If you are a fan of science fiction, as I am, this is a not bad. It does read so far like a little bit formulaic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John Walkenford | 1/8/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 HBalikov | 12/19/2013

    " In the military sci-fi tradition. Not quite up there with R. Heinlein and E. Moon but enjoyable. A new type of spaceship, fresh from Earth wars leaves our solar system ann.d discovers other "humans" under attack. Starship Troopers meets S.T. the Next Ge "

    " I liked this book. I'll definitely pick up the second one at some point. There are a lot of unanswered questions at the end of this book and I need to know the answers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gary Proctor | 12/11/2013

    " A different, but good take on some of the more common sci fi tech stuff. A very nice first encounter story with likable characters and an engaging plot line. I really want Even to write another in this series soon! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kenny | 12/11/2013

    " Standard space opera. Has soldiers in a bug war, space planes for dogfights, and a spaceship that works as a battleship-aircraft carrier-submarine. Characters are stock with the military their only life. Plotting is great; the action keeps the pages turning. Readable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natalie Omer | 11/29/2013

    " Great book. I would have given it 5 stars but it had swearing in the last 1/3 of the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scott | 11/3/2013

    " Like a novelized BSG. Space and ground military action on an exploration mission far from home. Ton of fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allen Massey | 9/5/2013

    " Space opera with pretty good hard science. I will read the next in the series. "

    " Nice sci-fi exploration story with space battles thrown in for good measure. The descriptions of light-speed travel was particularly interesting. This book is a first in a series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Toby Udstuen | 4/27/2013

    " The first few chapters need work. The individual characters need more challenges. Good series start. Only Scifi junkies need apply. "
