Book #37 - The Synchronicity War

41fVDHcTSZL._AA160_The first book of the Synchronicity War starts out like many space operas. Humans are out in space, warships, though really explorers are looking for a missing ship. They are attacked by aliens, and only escape due to the forethought of one commander, Shiloh.

However it's not intuition, he gets a vision, a precognitive event that tells him to launch a probe. He does and they survive. The rest of the book goes into preparations for war back on Earth where the space force must convert to a more military like function. He receives other visions, and manages to survive as humanity continues to battle the aliens, who they can't communicate with.

He also begins to use and trust the AIs developed by Earth, realizing they're sentient.

The book ends with a cliffhanger, as it begins to evolve in the war. I enjoyed it and immediately bought the next book.
