Destruction by Raymond L. Weil
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The opening novel of a series has to set the scene and bring in the reader and "Destruction" certainly did that even if the huge ominous alien ship in orbit may lack some imagination, it is however a well respected trope for a reason. In this context of humanity established on the Moon and Vesta with a nod to Mars the threat posed by this ship worked well and the actions it takes moves away from what you might expect. The consequences and how humanity and the particular characters who are written front and centre are then the driving force of this first novel and I enjoyed both the situations as they impacted the Earth and the colonies as well as the far flung ramifications (more of that to come).
A good solid start to the Galactic Wars series and looking forward to reading the other five novels.
