2015 Book #57 - Constitution

A new Sci-fi trilogy. This is book #1 in a new series, and I really enjoyed it. I'm hoping the author keeps this going.

Consitution is set in the future. Humans explore space, and they're on watch. They were attacked almost a century ago by aliens that were called the Swarm. Now we on wary, but the concern has faded. The constitution is one of the older ship still around, and ready to be decommissioned. When some systems lose contact with Earth, people start to realize something is wrong and the legacy fleet goes out to investigate and eventually engage.

It's similar to Ark Royal, but the writing is good and I enjoyed this. The characters get well developed, and it's sad. This is war, and some of the people I like get killed. It's quite a long book that follows through battles to defend the Earth and slow, or stop the aliens. They do, as you may guess, but the aliens will be back.
