    Have you read it, or is this a random book by an author you like that you've been meaning to get to?

    i read the whole orphan series. it doesn't get super heavy scifi in the first book, but the writing is still phenonimnal and what scifi there is really counts towards the story, like change or die type stuff. it's really great because you know how like star trek starts you where humanity has achieved this super space fleet already? well here you get to follow humanities ascent into the realms of scifi. one of the best military scifi series i've ever read.

    Updated first post to add discussion guidelines as the 'Group discussion' section does not allow for posts over 3000 characters.

    We have more members than votes for June and July's books. Hurry up and vote! This poll will be closing on May 1st and the next poll will go up! If it comes down to a tie between books I'll be flipping a coin as the deciding vote.
