"Defeated takes readers on a fantastic adventure! Sure to satisfy avid sci-fi fans."
"The bottom line, though, is that Defeated is a very engaging work of science fiction. McKee has a very creative imagination that serves him well in this particular genre, and his ability to create characters readers like and care about should serve him well as this particular series progresses. There is every reason to believe that McKee has quite a successful science fiction career in front of him."
Apex Science Fiction & Horror Digest
"S.D. McKee kicks off what will presumably become the Darkness Among the Stars trilogy with Defeated and he does so in grand style...
Ultimately Defeated was well worth the investment of time and effort."
Curled Up With a Good Book
"There's enough adventure, danger, love interest, camaraderie, and techno-detail in Defeated to make the avid reader of the genre clamor for more, and we are certain that McKee stands ready to deliver..."
