First in a brand new thought-provoking science fiction series. The lines. No ship can traverse the void without them. Only linesmen can work with them. But only Ean Lambert hears their song. And everyone thinks he's crazy... Most slum kids never go far, certainly not becoming a level-ten linesman like Ean. Even if he's part of a small, and unethical, cartel, and the other linesmen disdain his self-taught methods, he's certified and working. Then a mysterious alien ship is discovered at the edges of the galaxy. Each of the major galactic powers is desperate to be the first to uncover the ship's secrets, but all they've learned is that it has the familiar lines of energy--and a defense system that, once triggered, annihilates everything in a 200 kilometer radius. The vessel threatens any linesman who dares to approach it, except Ean. His unique talents may be the key to understanding this alarming new force--and reconfiguring the relationship between humans and the ships that serve them, forever.… (més)

Loved it! There were a few political pages that didn't read very fast, but overall I loved the concepts, and I found the lines to be quite cute. ( )

The lines. No ship can traverse the void without them. Only linesmen can work with them. But only Ean Lambert hears their song. And everyone thinks he’s crazy…Most slum kids never go far, certainly not becoming a level-ten linesman like Ean. Even if he’s part of a small, and unethical, cartel, and the other linesmen disdain his self-taught methods, he’s certified and working. Then a mysterious alien ship is discovered at the edges of the galaxy. Each of the major galactic powers is desperate to be the first to uncover the ship’s secrets, but all they’ve learned is that it has the familiar lines of energy—and a defense system that, once triggered, annihilates everything in a 200 kilometer radius. The vessel threatens any linesman who dares to approach it, except Ean. His unique talents may be the key to understanding this alarming new force—and reconfiguring the relationship between humans and the ships that serve them, forever.

This really fell apart for me about halfway in. Ean got too powerful too quickly, and everything else just felt made up and fake Jack Campbell’s Lost Fleet series. Really disappointed, because it started out SO good. And by the way? I felt like I was hearing the word “lines” every other word by 2/3s of the way in. Ugh. ( )

A new author to me. Liked this one a lot, some fresh ideas and the universe has a lot of potential for more stories, which I'm looking forward to. ( )

An interesting story with an interesting concept. Look forward to the next book in the series. ( )

I'm not sure I recommend this book, because I'm not sure what exactly appeals to me about it. Is it the character and politics driven sci-fi? Aliens? Sentient ships? Likable main character? Could be.

I really enjoyed it, I can see that if you start it expecting traditional sci-fi it can be disappointment. So read without expectations and you may enjoy it.

-- reread review

I truly love these books and this world. This time they were slightly soured for me with some sexism and racism that I hadn't seen before so bewarned. ( )
