Product Description

Product Description

Enemy of Korgan. SF novel;109,000 words (approx 312 pages).

He was prospector, smuggler and spy. And then things became complicated. What can a man of honour do when he finds himself working for both sides?

When Lorne witnesses the ambush of a caravan, he ends up protecting those he would otherwise consider enemies. Taken in by the hated Korgans, honoured as a hero, Lorne begins to work for them even as he plots their destruction. Living a lie is no life worth living and, torn by promises made to both sides, he struggles to find a way out that doesn’t entail the breaking of his word—even to one he has sworn to kill.

More About the Author

D.A. Boulter hates talking about himself in the 3rd person. Finds it annoying.

Since my early school days, Science Fiction and Fantasy have intrigued me, starting with Heinlein, whose Starship Troopers I read in the middle 60s, long before I knew about the social and political themes it carried. My seminal year, though, came in 1974 when I got my hands on a copy of Frank Herbert's "Dune", which fascinated me with its depth and breadth. At that moment I knew I SF&F had hooked me.

However, it took another ten years before I seriously considered writing my own material and another ten after that before I began writing in earnest. Now, with the advent of e-readers, I find myself in the very strange position of being a published author, rather than someone who wrote for himself only. It gratifies me that many have read and enjoyed my works. Thank you.

I've worked as a cook, a first-aid attendant, weather observer, radar operator and tech. I've worked in the city, in the woods, and in the Arctic. Just now, I find myself on the West Coast of Canada, with my feline companion -- one of a line of cats who have shared my writing moments (and interrupted them as well).

5.0 out of 5 stars A most interesting set of characters. 27 April 2012
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Boulter develops the most intriguing characters while keeping the action moving along quite interestingly. I wish I was I a better writer myself as this is one author who deserves many well written reviews. However, if I can only think to say that everything this author writes is worth reading that will have to suffice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Military story with some SF elements 16 April 2012
By Bill Schjelderup - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've read almost everything D.A. Boulter has written, and enjoyed this story as well. I bought the book with zero reviews for two reasons. 1) I've enjoyed Boulters other books and would probably like this one. 2) I want Boulter to write more books, and selling stories helps.

Enemy of Korgan is more a story about conflicted people than a traditional SF yarn. Boulters previous book Pelgraff has more SF elements, but I liked the more personal Enemy of Korgan better. Most military SF has the main character as a captain, or leader of some kind. This story is about a lone soldier torn by his past and new obligations.

Lorne's story trickles out throughout the book. In the beginning his motivations are murky and although there are clues we know little about his background and personality. Is Lorne a "good" person or not? How will he deal with his inner demons? During the story it's unclear at time if we are seeing the "Real" Lorne or the Lorne he wants those around him to see. Can he keep his promises? Does he really want to, or is it all an act? What motivates the people around him? A bit of romance brings out more questions.

I won't ruin the story other than to say it has more person to person conflicts than technology vs technology. I did like the fact that a ballistic weapon was used at great advantage in an age where they were considered obsolete.

I'm looking forward to Boulters next story and expect soon we won't get them for only $2.99!

4.0 out of 5 stars Another fine work by D.A. Boulter 15 April 2012
By P. Robinson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is a fine adventure story with great story elements. My hope is that DA Boulter continues to be encouraged and continues to write. He has a terrific grasp of situational plot elements that build powerful stories. If you read the sample, you can get an immediate and accurate sense of whether you will enjoy this book. While some people may anticipate the plot developments, the story is not predictable and DA Boulter put in many thoughtful elements in the backstory of a political war novel with romance among the lead characters. The characters are strong, conflicted, and true to their descriptions as they develop. As an author, DA Boulter is clearly improving. His other works, the Steadfasting The Steadfasting and Courtesan Courtesan are also very good. If DA Boulter continues to write, he will become a very popular and well known author.

The small flaws in this book are very minor and result from the challenges of self-editing. As a reader, I really appreciate it when the sample gives you enough to really understand if you want to buy the book. I recommend this book with 4 stars and if you like the sample, I'm sure you will want the book and any sequels the author may write.

I was glad to see this new offering by one of my favorite authors. He didn't disappoint. He grabbed me and held my attention right to the last page. And I liked the characters -- they were honorable and believable. I'm recommending this book to my friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Wow from this author 7 Sep 2012
By Sparta - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have to say this author has a gift for story telling, as another reviewer accurately describes, Boulter "develops the most intriguing characters while keeping the action moving along quite interestingly." This is only the second book I've read by D.A. Boulter and I enjoyed this story as well. Enemy of Korgan is more a story about the main character deal with his inner demons while fighting and developing honorable relationships with the enemy. To be honest, I was emotionally moved by the plot line - a soldier that does his duty after terrible personal loss. The way his back story drips outs makes you thirst for insights into his history and motivations. Military SFI stories are my favorite subject matter and if you prefer depth of characters, a well paced plot, a dark lone wolf type who is really a "good" and honorable person - conflicted - unpredictable, then you are going to remember this novel as one of your favorites.

I just can not bring myself to "spoil" the details for you.
