Book Description

7 Jan 2009
This volume collects the first two novellas in the Spinward Fringe Series: Resurrection and Awakening. Captain Jacob Valance has no memory of his past. Left on a strange ship in an unfamiliar sector of the galaxy, he was forced to begin a new life. Years pass and in that time he's earned a reputation as a man who can hunt down hardened criminals and go where others fear to tread. The crew of the Samson are caught up in the problems of their Captain as his past starts to catch up with him. Just as new allies start to fall in line old enemies come creeping out of the shadows, putting everyone at risk. While the crew struggles to deal with their own problems, Regent Galactic begins putting a plan in motion that will bring about the fourth fall of man and position their Corporation as the dominant power on the fringe. Their ambition and greed spell disaster for mankind. The Spinward Fringe Series follows after the First Light Chronicles, available in a collected Omnibus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent series 19 Feb 2011
By Nixy
Format:Kindle Edition
Let me start by saying
1. I am rubbish at writing reviews
2. I'm not a sci fi aficionado
3. But I knows what I likes

And I love the Spinward Fringe series very much. My interest was sparked by Broadcast 0 being free for the Kindle - can I say as a marketing technique this worked really well as I have subsequently bought the next 6 books in the series.

If you like an epic yarn with characters you engage with, plot twists and turns, huge battles etc then the Spinward Fringe is for you. What I love about it is that the author has self published these electronically (I think) as a way of getting his work out there - well done Mr Lalonde! You've made a fangirl out of me :)

Get yourself an e-reader, get Broadcast 0, get hooked.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Sci-fi Continued 28 Feb 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read the first in the series and as a result had to pick up the next installment, knowing of course that in so doing I would likely be committing myself to purchasing the remainder of the series.

Broadcast 1 and 2 continues the good writing and enjoyable story telling that was visible in the first book. The story moves on at a rapid pace and we catch up with most of the characters from broadcast 0 who are now spread far and wide amongst the planets in the galaxy, mostly as a result of there captain Jonas being captured.

But Jonas turns up as Jake Valance, unable to remember anything more than 5 years ago and causing chaos as a mercenary style bounty hunter doing most anything for some hard cash, seemingly unaware of his past.

There's a great twist near the end of the book that I never saw coming, and it shows a real imagination for pushing a story to new boundaries, and keeping the reader wanting more.

I enoyed the first book a great deal, have to say I enjoyed this book as much. Although I did notice a few more spelling/grammatical mistakes in this book, but it did not spoil the enjoyment too much.

Two books into the series and I am hooked, the third will be purchased and downloaded to the Kindle very soon, and I will get through all the series you can bet on that.

If you have read the first book in the series and enjoyed it I think you will find this one as compelling to read, if you didnt like the first one then do not torment yourself by reading this review, the series is not for you, move on now.

5.0 out of 5 stars The story continues!! 25 Feb 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another bargain from Mr Lalonde, the next two books in the Spinward Fringe Series for the same price as one of the later books. Another good marketing technique after setting the first book in the series Broadcast 0 Origins for free.

If you enjoy plot twists, huge epic battles, whole solor systems at war etc that would put a series of Star Trek/Stargate to shame then the Spinward Fringe Series is for you!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, engaging space opera 28 Mar 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I downloaded the origins for free just while looking for some sci fi to while away the quiet hours, and was thoroughly engaged. The feeling continues with this. It's not going to move the world, but is a decent, well written story with likable, believable characters you enjoy reading about and want to see do well. Just downloaded Triton and will work my way through the series with relish. Feels the same as when I first read the Lensman series as a much younger man! Well worth a look. . . .

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent follow-up 12 Dec 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
After the first book I wasn't sure what to expect next.But I needn't have worried these next two books are just as exciting and interesting as the first one. Both together are about the same size as the original book which was a good size in itself. The story moves on a bit and throws out some amazing plot changes, the characters are not all in the same place in this book so their is more going back and forth between storylines.Although this disrupts the flow a wee bit it doesn't mean it ruins the story in any way.
The mix of dialogue ,background and combat is also well planned and I feel the mix makes this series difficult to put down.

It is also amazing to find e-books at a reasonable price ,usually they seem to cost more than the hardback version ,this is another plus for me as buying a series of books can be very expensive especially so for e-books(wheel of time victim).
If you liked the first book then I would recommend this one for sure.

Hope this helps

5.0 out of 5 stars You just can't stop reading 11 May 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this book when I was halfway through Broadcast 0. Spinward Fringe had me hooked from the start! I think I started to fall in love with the characters about halfway through Chapter 3....
The story flows quickly, and although some of the tech is a little too far-fetched, Randolphe Lalonde scoops you up and carries you along with his fabulous imagination.
Well written (there is an explanation for all the spelling and grammar errors on the author's website) and superbly entertaining. A big thumbs up.

I bought this book immediately after finishing Origins because I was so gripped by the storyline (though slightly vexed by the typos and formatting errors). This second instalment is equally good and I would say slightly less typo-ridden - but still has a noticeable amount.

We are introduced to the Captain, Jacob Valence, who has no knowledge of his past except that he has a daughter. He is a ruthless bounty hunter, but as he interacts with his crew it is revealed that he is an excellent leader and engineer. His crew are a series of interesting and believable characters, and given that anyone who has read book 1 knows about the original Captain and the real identity of his "daughter", it is really interesting to see how the character differs in this book.

You can read about the plot above, so I won't duplicate it here, but suffice it to say that once again Lalonde has assembled a highly complex and believable cast of characters, put them in a series of exciting and suspenseful situations, and just at the end has thrown in a couple of real curve-balls. Just as the story arc appears to be coming to a conclusion, there is both a tantalising hook of new complexities, and a highly unexpected twist. So far so gripping; however on the down side, just like the first book, this superb story is once again larded with formatting issues and mistakes that let it down badly, and once again these are all that stand between it being on a par with a professionally published book.

So, that was my take on it; but should you read this book? Probably; depends on how much you care about the typos.
