Product Description

Product Description

The Line Must Hold!

The United Colonies are unprepared for a war that everyone knew was coming. Locked in a stalemate against the Sa’Ami, they now face the wrath of those once discarded from Earth. The first assault strikes with nanite-annihilators and the Colonial fleets race to survive as their orbital defense platforms dissolve into raw elements.

I recommend this book to any military sci fi lovers who thrives on interstellar conflicts!
The author does a great job creating a futuristic world and weaves layers of intrigue into a fast paced military page turner.
The new cast brings distinct personalities and depth as the story seamlessly unfolds.

Lieutenant William Grace, sole survivor of the Farshore genocide, must fight for the Navy that once destroyed his home against an enemy that traded its humanity for cybernetic power.

The goods news: he has a cutting edge starship, a platoon of powered armor, and a crew to make it all happen. The bad news is that they face human machine constructs, armies of combat robots, a technologically advanced foe, and a Commanding Officer who’d see him shot. The defending fleets are annihilated and only William and his crew can hold the line.

This is the story of the Soldiers, Marines, and Sailors who must do their duty; the pacifist-colonists who bear the brunt of the assault and stand to lose everything; the Navy that is tasked with an impossible duty, to stand against a foe that has weapons it has never seen; and all of those who believe in the United Colonies - and those who would see it fall.

The Sa’Ami are coming. With them comes a veil of tyranny unlike anything ever seen before.

This is a full length military science fiction space opera, 100,000 words. It can be read as a standalone, or as part of the series A Star Too Far.

More About the Author

I was drawn to write awesome fiction the day I realized that I'd never make a trip to Mars, or bounce on the Moon. You always kind of know it in the back of your mind, but that one sad moment cemented it all. Now I create worlds to travel to, design conflicts that embroil worlds, and make characters that I'd want to explore with.

I watch the stars at night and dream of the distant lights.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent sequel to a great beginning! 11 Jun. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found this sequel a excellent follow-up on "Trial by Ice", here we will see former midshipman William Grace (now Lieutenant) in his new position as an exec on a frigate. Also in this book we will learn more about the universe William Grace inhabate, the political turmoil and the friction between Earth and its colonies. We see a more mature William dealing with an hostile captain and the ever present foe the Sa’Am. A new character Army Lieutenant Takumi Yamaguchi is introduced and gives us his viewpoint as a ground pounder in this interstellar conflict. Also in the sideline we see Marine Major Archibald Theodore who in the beginning of the conflict got captured by the Sa’Am and through his interaction with a high ranking member of the Sa’Am during his captivity we see a reason why Sa’Am started this conflict.

I found the battle scenes very entertaining and especially the use of drones very fascinating. Calouettes way to describe ship-to-ship action is portrayed in a realistic way and to my own liking. We also get deeper insight in William Grace character, his internal turmoil about his service in a navy with prejudice against colonials (not all of them, but many). Hopefully this is just the second book in many future books. I see in William Grace a navy legend in the making . And im eagerly awaiting the next book to see how Grace evolve!

I recommend this book to any military sci fi lovers who thrives on interstellar conflicts!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story, fast paced throughout, very entertaining! 5 Jun. 2014
By JJ Langford - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The author does a great job creating a futuristic world and weaves layers of intrigue into a fast paced military page turner. While the first book of the series seemed to focus on man vs. nature, the backdrop for this book shifts to larger, universe wide political upheaval and how a small set of individuals can be instrumental in dictating the future. The author weaves a story line that has the reader empathizing with all sides of the conflict. These character dynamics make every scene meaningful and allows for a very entertaining book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Success with the second book! 6 July 2014
By K - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Second book in the series did not disappoint! Main character William Grace matured with a new cast along with one familiar friend. The new cast brings distinct personalities and depth as the story seamlessly unfolds. The main conflict continues with the Sa'Ami and we are shown divisions within the UC. The battle action is descriptive and intense. Usually I am more interested in hand to hand combat but in this book I found the ship battles just as exciting. The technology in the story is very imaginative and seems it could realistically be achieved.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another good one from Casey Calouette 5 July 2014
By Timothy L. Obriant - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The second entry in "A Star Too Far" series is a bit more consistent than its predecessor. War with the Sa'Ami ignites with a vicious surprise attack and again William Grace finds himself in the middle of it. Unfortunately, Grace finds himself fighting a battle on two fronts--the Sa'Ami and his own new captain.

I confess that I haven't read tons of futuristic military fiction so much of the machinery of war that the author invents seems startling and overwhelming. Seems that Calouette has given a lot of thought to the future world he is painting which I really appreciate. On several levels it seems rich and three dimensional, even complete with a Mennonite-type planet that goes very low-tech for the times.

The problem I observed in the first book ("Tr9al By Ice") is still here; that is, the battle scenes don't always give me enough description/information to follow what is happening. I like the protagonist, but some of the other characters are a little too sparsely drawn.

If four stars means "I Like It", then that is true for me. I like the story and am keen to find out what happens next. But I do not mean to say these books are the same quality as other "pro" writers. For me, Calouette's best writing continues to be the first half of the Book 1 of this series. THAT was gripping stuff. A good second effort and am hoping #3 continues to improve.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great sequel, thrilling story 11 July 2014
By Sascha - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I was looking forward to read how LT Grace's adventure would continue and finally I was able to do so. The reader is taken into a galaxy wide conflict between the races inhabitating various parts of afore mentioned galaxy. Through bravery, smart tactics and strategy and sometimes sheer luck Grace manages to solve the problems thrown at him... or at least most of them. The story is thrilling and has me waiting yet again to see how Mr Grace's adventures will continue in book #3!
