Book Description

“Buckle up--this is another crazy ride!”

The Scrapyard Ship sci-fi "cliff-hanger" adventures continue with HAB 12, the second book in the series:

Captain Jason Reynolds faces new challenges, not only on Earth but from the far side of the universe as well. The only way to stop the Craing this time will be to square off with them on their home turf. 

Jason's been informed that three powerful Craing warships, having similar technology as The Lilly, will soon be en route to Earth. The Alliance must destroy the Craing's wormhole means of distant space travel to avert Earth's total annihilation. Unfortunately, there's no way to reach the Craing worlds in time, at least not through conventional means. 

It's up to Jason and his hand-picked assault team to traverse, by advanced phase-shifting means, through the hazardous environment of HAB 12. This is an adventure fraught with carnivores of a Jurassic Age magnitude, and a terrain so deadly that turning back may be their only hope of survival.

Note from the author:
Don't be surprised by cliff-hanger endings. I'll do my best to keep Scrapyard Ship as well as the Tapped In series books coming so you wont have long to wait for the next book. Enjoy!

    2.0 out of 5 stars idiocy ruins a good read 28 April 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    An imaginative storyline, and easy style to read, this should be a four star rating... BUT the constant unprofessional idiocy of the main characters constantly detracts from the enjoyment. Made doubly so as it's interwoven with over the top references to how elite they are and how they are SEALS. Unfortunately the author has given them less professionalism than a team of cub scouts. An example..

    (Slight spoiler alert)

    They enter a barren landscape, desert like, you can see for miles and they have huds that show them hostiles in bound from 20kms. No immediate threat so.. they "get so carried away with excitement at playing with the phase shift that they are suddenly surrounded with realising it" they then lose men as they "hadn't gotten around to working out how their weapons worked". This is just one of waaaaay too many examples - it would be pretty hard to swallow with even non military rookies but at least slightly easier instead such basic idiotic mishaps happen again and again, often resulting in an "elite SEAL" dying as a result and the reader grinding his teeth in irritation.

    If it's was such an easy read and an interesting story line this would be destined for zero stars and the remove from device option as it is, it's just ok for a read providing you don't mind the constant annoyance.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Dopes 25 May 2014
    By faz1951
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    This book I had thought, would be an improvement on the first in the series, but I was increasingly annoyed by the heroes making mistakes that a boy scout would not. They entered a scenario which they knew was lethal yet all of these supposed SEAL types didn't know how to use their weapons. The heroes just seemed to blunder from one disastrous scene to another making a series of stupid mistakes and then being hammered by the bad guys. Then the author split the action and we had two teams of incompetents making twice as many simple errors leading to disaster. It got worse and worse and then it ended with a cliff-hanger, I don't like Cliff-hangers and this one ended practically in the middle of a sentence. If the author wishes to encourage the reader to buy more, then perhaps he should spend a little time crafting a ending which is not so abrupt.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Moronic sequel, limited ideas have run out. 2 Jan. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I realise this is supposed to be pure escapism, but frankly to have all your primary male characters as members of various military units and then have them ignore any and all basic common sense protocols is just silly.
    Continually under attack, they decide to carry new weapons they don't know how to use and don't bother training with them, captured because they don't post a lookout, ship captured because they don't have security restrictions on internal areas? Perhaps they should have taken a few boy scouts...
    And the women just simper and smile, apart from the suddenly traitorous Cramer, with no explanation of why or what she was trying to achieve. I thought the first book was reasonable with a few weak areas, I expected this one would be an improvement but none of the characters seem to have developed at all. Same mistakes, same confusion. The captain is obsessed with winning back his ex wife, so why would he be chasing a crew member at the same time?

    2.0 out of 5 stars Not So Good 27 Mar. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Somehow this book did not capture my interest as did the first book. On reflection I suspect there was too much stereotypical plot development. The good old USA senior officer trying to overthrow the new order had me gritting my teeth. I will look for another in the series but may not be tempted unless there is a new departure in the plot.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Readable, if a little unbelievable at times. 28 Jan. 2015
    Format:Kindle Edition
    As others have said, some of the actions of the characters are at best questionable and in all honesty sheer idiocy with a sprinkling of complete incompetence for good measure. No spoilers are needed here, you’ll know when you read it! Suffice to say, the Teletubbies have been known to show more intelligence. This is, as you might have guessed, not the most realistic military science fiction.

    It’s a shame as the storyline itself is good, with readable characters and an interesting premise in explaining the fantastical technology under one big umbrella term - multiverse theory.

    One can only hope that in future novels the author likes his characters enough not to kill them off blowing their own brains out in friendly fire.

    3.0 out of 5 stars good narrative thread, solid space opera 5 Feb. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    This is the second book in a series, usually sequels are weaker, but this one is not. It's a page turner, but the characters are a bit two-dimensional and there's a tendency towards the space opera standard of imminent certain death averted by cunning and brute force using weapons invented only pages earlier.

    I'd give it 4 but the editing is irritatingly bad: populous for populace almost every time, and numerous other malapropisms. Either someone is struggling for a degree of linguistic sophistication which is actually unnecessary given a good story and some interesting ideas, or the word processor is auto incorrecting things.

    Yet again I found myself just wanting to keep on reading. Thoroughly enjoyed the this book but found it a bit short just like the first one. Also the climaxes seem to come and go to quickly. But I still thoroughly enjoyed the book and looking forward to the release of the third one.
