Product Description

Product Description

Mission: travel to a nebula called Starmaker. Discover what is threatening not just the star nursery, but every world within a
thousand light-years.

As this fourth volume of The Chaos Chronicles opens, John Bandicut and his companions are tired. Would it be too much to
ask for a little rest? Apparently so. They reach an interstellar
waystation, only to find it being hammered by shock waves from
the nearby Starmaker, known to Bandicut as the Great Orion Nebula.
What's the cause? No one knows. But they need to find out, not only
because their present shelter is threatened with destruction, but
because sentient stars in the nebula are dying. And the danger could
cascade across thousands of light-years, threatening uncounted
worlds--including Earth.

Aboard a ship called The Long View, Bandicut and his band of
exiles journey not just into the perils of a star-forming nebula, but
into confrontation with a billion-year-old adversary of life as they
know it. Whatever chance they have of stopping the terrifying Mindaru
may be found only in the fiery heart of an intelligent sun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Becoming a cracking series. 24 Sep 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I downloaded the first four books one after the other, as I read them. It has been a long time since I looked forward so much for the next and then the next and then the next and up to Sunborn. Each one is better than the last and I can hardly wait for the next one in the series.

In fairness, I do think that the first half of the first book, Neptune Crossing was a bit awkward and slow and was almost on the point of rejecting it to the discard pile. Very pleased I stuck with it.

We have a series of staggeringly imaginative science fiction here, especially if you like hard SciFi. There are battle's aplenty, but not your conventional spaceships blasting each other with plasma railguns sort of battles. Aliens, but not like the ones we usually encounter in flights of fancy (mostly).

Enough, I'm not going to spoil your fun in finding out. Buy the books and read them for yourselves.

Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good enough 19 May 2014

I like these books generally. A couple of the new characters in this book are maybe a little too convenient for the plot, but otherwise it's the usual "easy-reading"

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent series 20 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is turning into an excellent Science fiction series.

A little more science content in this book than the previous ones, therefore a little harder to read, but that is a function of the story rather than a desire to bewilder you.

Well written, and featuring fully rounded characters and plot-lines this is on a par with the greats of the Sci-Fi genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars great read 3 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Loved this end to end plus some brand new sf concepts that I've never read before and when you have read as much sf as I have over 40 years that's pretty incredible. Cracking!

I really rate Mr Carver, he seems to have a way of enticing the reader into his worlds and they are worth exploring.

Well, I struggled with the volume one, as it was a bit different, but now I am starting to like Charlie (wish I had one)! Looking forward to the next volume now.

Its the fourth book my previous review was for the third book, but my amazement still continues for this style of writing in that books continue the story. What will they think of next. Tv in serial form....... Never???
