    1. Long Voyage of the Little Fleet, is just as much fun as Family Law. The characters are warmly realized, with flaws, motivations, and weaknesses that make them sympathetic and heroic at times. The science of exploration, and economics, is explored in depth, which for me really makes the whole thing seem real. This is a world I'd love to live in. It's not perfect, but it feels REAL.


    2. In the first book in this series the author created an interesting young female main character, but for the first third of this book she is only a ‘bit part’ player. He did the same in the April books, where she was the most interesting character, but he eventually relegated her to a minor role. I‘m afraid this did annoy me and coloured my view of the first half of the book.The story starts quite slowly and I must admit I was getting quite bored. The first quarter was just jumping from one [...]


    3. Sucked right in (possible spoilers)I've been reading speculative fiction for decades. Some brilliant, some not so much. This series has been a treasure so far.This book is a much slower read than the first, with good reason.They found four space faring species. One with whom they find much in common. There is a great deal of learning of cultures. One species so authoritarian it was not worth contact. Two allied species of the friendly first contact species. Finally a mystery species we have much [...]


    4. Really enjoying this seriesFirst, I love the pace of the story, there is time to develop the characters, supplies and infrastructure are believable, rather then ready instantly. It is hard to conceptualize that amount of wealth but I think the author handles it well.


    5. Great story! Horrible editing!Another great story! Lee has a smaller art in thisbook but all the characters are fun. But the editing is pitiful. It's definitely worth editing and re-releasing.


    6. OkI like aliens done as completely, differently motivated from what I can imagine a human being might think. I'd have liked all the other aliens to be more fully described. In this regard, the series continues to please. That being said, the writing continues to be poor. The aliens are generally more fully developed characters than most of the humans. When the story forces you to compare, it's jarring. Shallow characters and no development, not to mention growth makes the story a hard read. This [...]


    7. Four and a half stars. It is hard not to compare this to "Family Law" since both books are part of the same series and by the same author. This is not nearly as ground breaking as the first book and many of the new characters are not nearly so fully developed. There were also many more typos than in "Family Law". It felt a little just a bit rushed; as a new fan of Chandler's work I can appreciate the hurry but it does show.The few negatives aside; this was a great, fun read. Our characters go on [...]


    8. Family Law SeriesA lot of fun, while handling various serious human social issues in an interstellar disparate community. The considerable tension between races, the not so subtle arrogance and hunger for power displayed by the majority of career politicians, and the refreshing concept of direct thought followed by action combine for excitement and humor that seems to be a characteristic of this author.If you like interstellar conflict, interstellar exploration, intense personal action, you will [...]


    9. Can you say plotting boys and girls? I knew you could.While the writing in this book is tighter than the previous book in the series, the plotting is not. There are too many sub plots and unnecessary scenes cluttering the place up.BUT -- the Derf still steal the show, and make the book worth reading despite the book's readability issues.


    10. LOVED ITI enjoyed FAMILY LAW very much, the story was so good. I'm glad this second one surpasses the first. Please, Mackey Chandler, write numbed 3 quickly. If you need someone to proof read for you, I am available. Definitely a 5 Star read.


    11. To boldly go where no woman and aliens have gone before without the redshirts.Joke aside, a great gontinuation of Family Law,


    12. 2 book series There are 2 books in the series, but I hope there are many more coming. It is a slightly different twist from most space faring sci-fi novels.
