    I didn't have high expectations for this set. Teenage boy meets alien threat and saves the world is a plot basic that is very very hard to do well for adults to enjoy. The first story was fair, the second much worse, and I stopped after that. I didn't have high expectations for this set.

    Good potential but a real let down. The plot was good, but the stories were just too childish. After the initial plot, the story went downhill and did not recover.

    A little more YA than I expected but entertaining regardless. Enjoyed it as a quick and entertaining read. Characters were either very likeable or totally horrible. Some laughable situations. YA readers should get a kick out of the novels.

    Bad This is not remotely up to the usual standards of this author. It is just too weak ,with nothing to redeem it

    I just couldn't get past the style of writing, and even for Sci-Fi/Fantasy , the magical thinking was too much. Book shelved permanently I just couldn't get past the style of writing, and even for Sci-Fi/Fantasy , the magical thinking was too much. Book shelved permanently

    Mr. Kallias has done it again - The Far Beyond series draws you into the non-stop action that is this author's style.  The characters are wild, cute and lovable and the villains are evil -- bad evil. A true flashback to the action filled Space Opera days.   This is a great, easy to read story to entice teens and young at heart to read more, especially those that like virtual reality video games, they may actually be training for their future. Take Mission Impossible, The Last Starfighter and Matr Mr. Kallias has done it again - The Far Beyond series draws you into the non-stop action that is this author's style.  The characters are wild, cute and lovable and the villains are evil -- bad evil.

Nothing like practically stumbling over a dying alien, then BAM!  You're in a spaceship and in an intergalactic war -- who even knew there was life in the stars, much less a war?  Kevin finds that his virtual reality skills and unorthodox thinking may be what is needed to help rescue the kidnapped Princess, save the galaxy and save earth. Mix together 1 teenager, 1 beagle, AIs, felines (tiny, small and big) spiders, a self-serving, murdering thief and a traitoress princess -- What could possibly go wrong?   Umm? Get reading, you'll find out. Five-stars for this great, easy to read story that can entice teens and young at heart to read more, especially those that like virtual reality video games -- they may actually be training for their future I suggest starting with Across the Galactic Pond. This prequel gives background to how this adventure first started and is referenced frequently. I did receive an Advance Copy from the author and gladly leave my voluntary review.

    Alert I hate trying to write reviews because there are really only pass/fail results for me. Did I make it all the way through? Yes? 5 stars. No? There would be nothing here to read. In all fairness, if an author holds my attention from page one to the end, they’ve done their job. Anything less than 5 stars is petty criticism from someone incapable of even doing the job let alone doing a better one.

    I read each of these books individually and really enjoyed the series. Christian manages to balance action with humour and through it all keeps you interested. A space ship crashes on Earth and Kevin goes to investigate. There then follows a series of enjoyable and funny romps through the universe helping the good guys and defeating the bad ones. (in simple terms). I received arc copies of these books

    What’s not to love? Kevin is not Luke Skywalker but he invokes similar vibes. Yet he’s an original guy in his own right. I love his friends and the scenarios he has to go through. This space opera is great stuff and came just when I needed a pick me up. There’s things to learn about honor and loving sacrifice too. Don’t miss this book series. It’s whole is greater than the sum of it’s parts!

    Far Beyond my Expectations I chose this series because it was a good deal at the time. It turned out to be surprisingly good with endearing characters, nasty villains, cool tech, talking cats and plenty of space battles. Leg'olas is my favourite character - you'll understand once you get there! Well worth a look ... Far Beyond my Expectations I chose this series because it was a good deal at the time.

    This was a fun fast read for me. I enjoyed it a lot. The author made some very unique decisions on how his character’s evolved. This book for me was like a good summer blockbuster action movie. The plot moves right along at a good pace, and always made me wonder what way the story would go. If you are looking for a good story with an interesting spin on SyFy. This is it.

    Great characters to get to grips with The characters each play their part and have their own stories. Although it is a great story I didn't find myself being carried along as with other stories of the same type Great characters to get to grips with The characters each play their part and have their own stories.

    A Real Ride I really like the series, a little bit of a wild ride at times, yet very interesting. I will get the next set of books with these characters if I see it. In the meantime I will read more books by this Author

    Good series When I start this series I felt it was written for a younger audience, after finishing all of them I think there is more here than I first believed. Read if you like science fiction that ends well, and it holds your attention.

    Entertaining read with hints of Alice in Wonderland I did really enjoy this book and had a hard time putting it down. Fast paced and fun to read. It's targeted towards the younger reader, but is still a very entertaining read. I would recommend it to all sci-first readers.

    Entertaining books about a teenager and his dog and how they save the galaxy. Usual comments about the impact of war on the combatants. It is a humorous SciFi fantasy that will keep you laughing.
