The time distortion is distracting and seems an artifice to make the story seem deeper and more complex. Dark Space isn't uninteresting, but it has shortcomings that distract from the stream of the story. Half-way through the first book in this trilogy, I had decided to give up on it. The characters were all extremely unlikeable and it was impossible to care about them or anything that was happening.

However, the next book on my list had not arrived so I reluctantly picked this back up for something to read. I ended up liking this trilogy, although it was strange and, for the most part, none of the characters became likeable. The reason is that as the storyline built up, normally selfish characters were faced with choices where they had to decide if they were going to care about more than themselves.
Curious corners of a writer's cluttered mind
Seeing how this played out and who stepped up to the plate, with what results was engaging. In the end, the character most willing to make a self-sacrifice was completely unexpected. It's dark and it's not a "feel good" book trilogy, but it was still worth reading. One note of caution is that the second book in the series decided to throw in several pornographic scenes for no reason that mattered to the plot.
This is the kind of book you just can't put down once you start it!
The story opens with a sort of drunken idiot of a pilot discovering an entity that for all practical purposes might as well be God. That entity wants to communicate with us, but there are some problems. Several parallel stories run throughout the book, and are at some point, I imagine, all going to come together. Probably in book 2 or 3 of what is clearly going to be a series oh joy!! The first parallel story is the one that held me the most. Mira is a young woman just graduating. She has inherited the "pilot gene" and will soon merge with the "biozoon" of a star ship.
But she is a woman, and the society believes only men should have this talent.

The plan is to somehow remove this genetic capability from her and give it to the heir to the throne. She escapes, returning to her home city, just as an apparently pointless invasion of dreadful creatures begins. We follow her as her story drifts in and out of the other main stories.
The second parallel story is of the young heir who was to receive her talent.

This was not something he wanted. Actually, in many ways, he is the most interesting character. He appears to be a total jerk, but sometimes, in his heart, you can see something better. The third parallel story involves some people who are "in training" to communicate with the God. Apparently, the God gives them tasks that they must achieve. Forgotten password?
