    1. It was refreshing to read about Freeground station and what's happening back home during the adventures of the main characters. I was in fact longing for more. It's a short story and I'm wondering where it fits into the Spinward series, if it adds background info or something else to the main series.At times it looks as if written by a much younger author, style-wise, when compared to Spinward Fringe 6/7, the time frame where this story is situated. I like reading Randolph Lalonde, his Spinward [...]


    2. Wow, Randolph Lalonde is currently, my favorite Science Fiction author, and it was with great anticipation that I awaited his newest release, The Expendable Few.As a Science Fiction fan, this book is definitely worth a read, but it's not my favorite work from Lalonde. Additionally, to keep everything in chronological order, you would almost certainly want your first Randolph Lalonde book to be Origins (Spinward Fringe). Bonus-this book is currently available as a free download on . If you're int [...]


    3. A much shorter tale than I'm used to in this series but I have to say that as large as colonized space is in this series and as much of it as is still unexplored and off the books there could be an infinite number of these shorter stories forthcoming. I will go on the record as saying that I'm okay with that.This is a story that revolves around a group of new characters and this particular tale should be read BEFORE you read the last book in the series. There are characters in the last book that [...]


    4. I have to admit that I was rather disappointed in this installment in the Spinward Fringe series. The rest of the series has been action packed and hard to put down. This book I felt was very much outside the feel of the rest of the series. Specifically I didn't like:-The rest of the series was very clean, this had a significant amount of hard-core profanity.-The characters were hard to bond with, and once you finally bonded, they were killed (it doesn't center around anyone (almost) from the pr [...]


    5. Being as this book is much shorter than Randolph's other spinward fringe works, the frequency of major events occur quickly and the main plot of the book surfaces quite early. Unlike his other books, The Expendable Few focuses on the main non-human intelligence present in the spinward fringe universe; the issirians. With the order of eden occupying a planet of native issirians, we start to see the issirians exhibit more human-like attitudes and behaviors toward their oppressors. It's safe to ass [...]


    6. The Spinward Fringe series is awesome, if you have not read it your are missing out.This is a readable book, however, I felt that much of the excellent sci-fi of the past books was removed and replaced with a political and social agenda. I expect the reviews of this book will fluctuate significantly depending on if the reader agrees with the agenda.Anyway, I did not have this feeling when I read the other books in this excellent series and I will certainly read the next book when it is released. [...]


    7. A book that lives between the Spinward Fringe Broadcast books 6 and 7. It's a whole different crew, one that is comprised of misfits from Freeground, sent out in the old First Light, renamed back to the Sunspire.It's another look at Freeground, with only hints of what is happening in the rest of the galaxy. the book was enjoyable, but felt disconnected from the series. Looking forward to book #7.


    8. I enjoy Randolph LaLonde's Broadcast series so much. I wish there were 10 more. At least that would get me through the summer. I had very high expectations for Expendable Few but I felt I was reading some one elses story, not like the Broadcast series which were so engaging. I just couldn't connect. I'll try again as I KNOW RL would not let his fans down with a mediocre work. I see it is rated highly so assuming it must be me.


    9. Randoph Lalonde writes a great sci fi seriesI've been following this series for years and have always enjoyed it. There must be eleven books in the series now, I'm looking forward to the next one. I recommend the series, the plot is convoluted, they are not stand alone books, it's good to read them in order.


    10. Short, fast and disturbing. It's wonderful to see another side of this universe, but it leaves me with some bad feeling for the future. This book was far more pessimistic than the other, previous Spinward book. Not that that is a bad thing. This was still a very good read and leaves me wanting more. Lots of new characters to wonder about !


    11. A very good read! Sets up a nice lead to Broadcast 7. Way to many grammar and misspellings. It's as if no editor actually edited it. Darn autocorrect looks like it changed a few things it shouldn't have. Randolph should "sack" those responsible. Well worth the price even if it were to cost 8 or 9 USD.


    12. This is not one of Mr. Lalonde's best. The best reason to read it though is because it fills in a lot of background for Spinward Fringe - Broadcast 7. It really helps to have that prior knowledge. Otherwise this particular book is just OK.


    13. Good installment in the series. I like the added back stories!This adds depth to Clark and other characters who play secondary roles.Plot is good but less space battle action than the Jonas novels.


    14. Really enjoyed the series so far. The Expendable Few for some reason I haven't quite pinned down just not as good as the rest. Worth reading, some interesting ideasfelt perhaps a little rushed and occasionally disjointed.


    15. Space opera life is complicated and very unfair. Who are the good guys? Who are the bad guys? With a few exceptions, that is not an easy question to answer. TEF introduces new characters and sheds new light on some old ones. A worthy addition to the Spinward Fringe universe!


    16. The entire Spinward Fringe series is outstanding. I can't get enough of them.Fast-paced, action-packed stories that will keep your eyes glued to the pages (or screen).The edge of the seat style of these books is just fantastic. I really loved these and hope to read a lot more by this author.



    17. Not many of the characters I'm use to in the series, but have a feeling this will tie into the next book(s).


    18. I didn't enjoy this as much as the mainstream Spinward Fringe novels - I didn't get as engrossed with the plot or the characters, but will still read the others as they come out.




    19. I've really been enjoying this series, although by this point I feel I know the regular characters, so missed them a bit in this book.
