Product Description

Product Description

Captain Eric Jameson and his Black Ops team are ordered to the front lines with the Titalian fleet in its battle against Enyla. But when their boarding craft is severely damaged, hoping that their enemies on both sides will assume they have died, Eric orders his men to fly out of the war zone and save their lives. Their escape, however, leads them straight to an even more vicious battle that has raged for centuries between powerful forces long forgotten in myths and legends.

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring 21 Feb 2013

Got this when it was free. Got threw several pages and couldn't read anymore. Maybe it is just me but being thrown into a space battle without much background and alien names being thrown at you was very confusing

2.0 out of 5 stars Too much back story missing 27 Nov 2012
By Paul
Verified Purchase
It's a bit of a muddle this book. the writing is not too bad at all but the story is confusing. It starts and continues like the 2nd book in a series. There is so much background to the story and characters that is referred to but never explained. the whole universe the book is set in is in a conflict which is never explained. Consequently you never really know what side anyone is on or was on or what their motivations are.
I gave up about halfway through.

3.0 out of 5 stars Glimpses of promise but disjointed 4 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase
Some of the ideas are promising and the concepts interesting but I found this book frustrating. The story telling is at times quite engaging and the main characters likeable but the constant introduction of new and unexplained characters and events makes the whole thing feel disjointed and hard work. There is no background to the physical or political world to help explain the action so you get no overall feel for the course of events.

3.0 out of 5 stars Science Fiction mixed with Fantasy in an old fashioned Space Opera 24 Nov 2012
By Peter R. Divergilio - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Reminiscent of the 50's - old fashioned shoot-em-up science fiction with hard drinking, hard fisted, hard loving heros. A couple of nice ideas, but not a lot of substance. Good for the younger crowd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spell binding from first page 13 Jan 2013

James Peterson has had me in his clutches before. When I saw this book had to have it. The action is fast and
hard. Can't wait for the next book, the clue was the last word in this book, on to another world

5.0 out of 5 stars ABARTACH 14 Nov 2012
By coffee - Published on Amazon.com

This book I enjoyed very much. The author has a very creative style. It held my interest. The communication was a bit puzzling. For a futuristic sci -fi I found ABARTAC very entertaining. Perhaps there will be a second book on the horizion and yes I would order again.

1.0 out of 5 stars This novel should be titled Starship Deus Ex Machina 31 Oct 2012
By grymwulf - Published on Amazon.com

Seriously, suspension of disbelief is ruined within the first few chapters. Take a Captain, whose father and grandfather are both admirals, although the grandfather is deceased. The grandfather just so happened to be commanding the fleet that was attacked to start the war. (There has to be a war, naturally). Combine this with a pilot who, supposedly, can fly anything ever built, even a ship with controls in no known language, and in unrecognizable configurations. And, let us not forget a small craft mechanic who seems to be the second coming of Montgomery Scott and Spock's love child, whose intuitive genius allows him to repair/fix/jerry-rig/Macgyver any system, including completely unknown systems with unknown technologies all before lunch. Combined with a squad of special forces troopers, who were previously commanded by the aforementioned Captain, gather together in a boarding pod launched in the midst of battle. A boarding pod, launched not to board disabled ships, instead to evidently Dirty Harry their way mid-battle to board enemy ships that are still fully active, retaining fighter coverage and weapons capability. Oh, did I forget to mention that our Stalwart Captain is evidently on the outs with unknown parties within his own command structure?

Our heroes, placed in this unruly cauldron of Authorial fiat manage to:

A) Outfly purpose built fighters, avoid being shot down by both sides.
B) Manage to miraculously escape to an abandoned enemy salvage ship, fully working, fly aforementioned salvage ship to his grandfather's flagship.
C) Miraculously said flagship, sitting there for an indeterminate (est 30+) number of years, has yet to be salvaged by any errant unabandoned salvage ships.
D) Our A-Team of heroes then manage to board said flagship, recover it's main data core/computer, several plasma cannons, supplies, fighters, oh and Scott McSpokadoodle puts together an EMP CANNON, handheld, naturally, that they use to take out some recon fighters.

But wait! We are not done! Said EMP cannon has shorted out the cloaking device of an abandoned alien super-ship, complete with Shields of Impregnability, Cannons of One-Shot One Kill, Improbability Drive of Instant Movement, and Mysterious Magical Compartments (haunted).

Instead of the author starting out with his protagonists in control of said alien ship, whose discovery could be filled in as needed for narrative sake, he seems to have decided to come up with the most improbable set of circumstances possible to equip his protagonists with the necessary tools to tell his intended tale.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOL 18 Oct 2012
By Rolling Dwarf - Published on Amazon.com

Do you think it's possible to love a book without understanding anything of it? That's what happened to me;^)
The story opens with a great space battle as per the best sci fi genre and from there moves to... boh, fantasy? Mistery? Weird things happen, plasma cannons fire, mechanics do wizard things and while all this happens I kept being sure that next page would bring a big revelation.... which obviously never appeared. Hope there's going to be a sequel to shed some light but hey, did I have fun reading it!
