  • There are three books in this series so far. I’d label these three books as fast reads. I read 50+ pages per sitting.
  • The writing wasn’t excellent, but what Taylor lacks in style he makes up for with thought-provoking ideas.
  • The names are silly and the covers look a little iffy. But they are REALLY fun reads! I can’t wait until the next installment comes out next year.
  • The first book is good, but you get pulled in with the second book.
  • Topics covered:
    • World creation
    • Exploration
    • 3D printing
    • Aliens
    • War
    • Extinction
    • Consciousness
    • Artifical vs real intelligence

I’m excited for the fourth one to come out next year!
