The sounds of birds and calls from other animals filled the air around Alice. There was no doubt; she was in the midst of wilderness unlike anything she’d ever seen. feathers watched her from large branches as she passed only metres below. They were predator birds, with great talons and cool, assessing gazes. The last time she saw so many birds in one place, she had woken early on New Year’s Day. She strolled along the beach, avoiding people who were still asleep on the sand and saying hello to early risers like herself

Spinward Fringe Broadcast 0: Origins. In the darkest region of explored space sits a bright beacon; Freeground Station.

Spinward Fringe Broadcast 0: Origins. Serving as a supply and trading post it is home to a select number of human beings that will take a desperate chance to make a difference in their end of the galaxy. Meanwhile, allies and enemies from his past are set to reveal themselves in unexpected ways, changing his life and the galaxy forever.

What at first seemed to be a chaotic uprising of machine against man is becoming a controlled event, destroying the lives of billions and hurling the known galaxy into a state of utter discord. The fourth fall of mankind is well underway. The Order of Eden seems to be the only force for order and peace, offering a place in their new society in trade for a large cash investment and their freedom. Captain Valance and the Triton crew are finally working as a unit. Oblivious to the grand designs of the Order of Eden, they will be drawn into the center of a galactic conflict over a planet with a secret that's been buried for decades. The question put to them is not if they can prevail, but if they can survive. Frontline takes the Spinward Fringe series to an epic scale without leaving what makes Space Opera great behind. Frontline has the drama, grit, characterization and humor we've come to expect from Randolph Lalonde.
This is an ok read but while it does have some action I did find much of it tedious and boring. The first hundred pages were particularly boring, going from character to character and the new Ayan having lengthy rememberances of her life as the old unwell Ayan as well as her sessions with her therapist - honestly my eyes started glazing over. In addition some of the dialogue was overly melodramatic to the point I was rolling my eyes and then there was the scene between Stephanie and Captain Valance - I so didn't see that coming. One minute she's yelling at Captain Valance and then the next paragraph they're kissing and making love???????? Talk about coming out of left field and not in a good way. I loved Origins which was the first one in the Spinward series, but since then I felt the whole series has been going down-hill. The characters have become almost one-dimensional; even Captain Valance seems to have lost his mo-jo and aside from the extremely bad editing, the plot-line has become a rambling mess. It seems so unfortunate as Lalonde had some very strong characters in Jonas Valent, Minh, Ayan, Laura, Oz and Jason and even the plot-line was very strong in Origins but now with the framework scenario it just seems so easy to bring back people whom the author has seen fit to kill off. Now we have bad guys like Wheeler coming back as framework copies; Captain Valence who is a framework copy of Jonas with all his memories but lacks the strong character that was Jonas - I think perhaps the framework angle just makes for a messy story because nobody seems to stay dead and that's just not normal. Most disturbing point in this book - the Wheeler framework copy cutting of his legs and watching as new ones grow - yuk, that made me feel completely creeped out. Overall, this book would benefit from a serious edit because much of it was a rambling mess, half of which did not contribute to the story moving forward. Don't get me wrong, this book is not a total white-wash. There is plenty of action, both on different planets and in space and it is tautly described - the downfall is that between the action are lengthy bits where nothing much is going on and it is these that could do with an edit job.
Very good book and I'm looking forward to starting the next one.
That being said I'm starting to see a pattern and I'm getting bored a little with. I'm hoping the next book will be different and if not I'll probably stop there. Whitout going into spoilers(and if you read this you have read the first 3 books) the pattern I see is that the story is always looping on itself, yes the main big story is moving forward but the main characters seems to be stuck in a ground hog day effect, loose everything, rebuild, die, reappears, go somewhere alone, get trapped, get saved, get trapped again, get saved, sprinkle some sience here and there, get super powerfull and lose it all...

Seems to me that the author is very enthousiastic abound science fiction and so trows some very wild things but gets to a point where the characters are becoming way to powerfull to some sort of challenge and so he removes everything and starts again.

All in all very good books but I'm getting exhausted to read so many. I really wish authors would stick to maximum 3 books to complete a story instead of going on and on and on like a TV shows (True Blood anyone?). seems that they only want to milk as much money as possible out of their idea instead of doing it efficiently and move on the a new one.
Let me start by saying that, in general, I have enjoyed this series books 1 through more than halfway through book 4 and I wouldn't dissuade anyone from trying them. But I am now quitting the book and the series. Primary reason: it has devolved from science fiction into space fantasy.

From the beginning, the author has played loose with the science and physical laws in his universe, especially as they relate to FTL communications and the spatial realities of space combat. He really does that with all the "science", but the storyline moves along well enough that its distracting but not so bad it can't be ignored as we follow the action.

But when he begins with such a weak foundation, by book 4 there are just basically no rules left that haven't been bent beyond breaking by whatever is most convenient to where he wishes the plot to go. I wish the author would study the Honor Harrington series and how a properly developed science can add so much depth and reality to tactical space encounters, weaponry and travel. By no means am I suggesting it must be the same...if an author wants ship-generated wormholes in his universe, that's great. But provide a tech and science universe with consistent rules. Otherwise might as well just issue magic wands from the materializer and call it a fluidly developing magic system.

If ever a book was in need of an editor. And a technical advisor. And someone who understood the basics of military rank structure.

An editor could have cut the rambling mess in some of the chapters. I don’t know how many times I muttered, “get to the point” especially near the end. And don’t get me started on the grammatical and spelling errors. Did anyone with even a passing knowledge of English grammar do a quick run through this book?

A technical advisor might have explained what an afterburner is, or how a solid rocket motor differs from a liquid engine.

The author might want to spend a day reading about the military. A lieutenant does not answer to a sergeant and a chief is not an officer.
