Book 1: Genocide 2 stars
The book didn't really contain any aliens until the last 25%. It was boring corporate b.s. The characters were only semi-likeable. And the bad guy was so obvious a middle schooler could have seen it coming.
There is also the fact the author couldn't keep straight which alien hive they were breaking into, the black or the red. He constantly switched colors, which made it hard to tell what was happening. "Wait, I thought they nuked the red queen. Why are they fighting her now? She's already dead! They were in the black queen hive a minute ago."
Poor writing. Boring story. One-dimensional characters.
