If you enjoyed the 14 book series of the Honor Harrington epic by master storyteller David Weber you will be delighted to discover Chronicles of The Marauder by A. G. Moye.

The Chronicles of The Marauder (name of the ship) begins an epic tale of a 10 year crossing to the outer reaches of the galaxy. To be sure this is an epic with fun plot twists and turns all along the way. It has all the right stuff, drama, tragedy, hope, triumph and success, and some pretty cool aliens once they "come on board".

This is the first attempt at faster than light (FTL) travel by a naïve human population that believes they are all alone in the universe. The FTL is a success but it comes with many mixed results. Those results are long lasting causing a number of ripples to flow throughout the story.

Make no mistake this is a science fiction space travel adventure book. It is about the story, not the hard core science. The science is fine, there are no glaring errors as often found with new authors, but it is not particularly new or dazzling. That is not the point of the book. This book is for a fun story with lots of storytelling and surprises. For example, the crew is almost all women - who have volunteered for permanent birth control. You can be pretty sure that colonization of a new planet is not the objective here! (you will never guess who wants to get pregnant first)

One of the few men, and a man of character, Captain Neil Armstrong (destined for space travel) has his hands full from the first day with his second in command, the lovely apparently competent but rather stern, XO Janice Willingsly.

One of the few men, and a man of character, Captain Neil Armstrong (destined for space travel) has his hands full from the first day with his second in command, the lovely apparently competent but rather stern, XO Janice Willingsly. Like the Honor Harrington chronicles follow her travels and travails, the Chronicles of The Marauder follow the dilemmas and decisions of the smart and increasingly savvy civilian Captain Neil. Lacking a military background he is often at odds with the overwhelming military past of most of his crew. All in all, it makes for a thoroughly fun well rounded adventure story.

This is my first read by A. G. Moye. I am happy to see that he is ahead of me with many more books on the shelf!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good, exciting read with unusual aliens 9 Jan. 2014
By Vic Broquard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Chronicles of the Marauder Book 1 by A. G. Moye, e-book format. I was intrigued by the initial setup. This story might easily take place just a few years from now! Neil wins “the largest lottery jackpot in American history allowing him to fulfill his lifelong dream of going to space.” Using his new-found funds to help finance his dream, he builds a ship to go to the stars on a ten year mission of exploration, hoping to answer the question: Do aliens exist? Due to circumstances beyond his control, sixty-eight percent the crew are females, an idea I found quite interesting. An ex-Naval officer, Janice, is the Commander, and Boris, the inventor of the new drive that takes them faster than light, initially attempts to under-mining Neil’s authority as Captain.
To the author’s credit, there isn’t any “slow action” chapter in the novel! He paints a realistic picture of the crew adjusting to their new lives on-board the ship, as they work out the kinks of the new spaceship. I found this portion of the novel quite “believable,” requiring no stretch of imagination — a good solid reality. Further, I found the character development to be done extremely well. They are not shallow face-cards, but believable, real people, a compliment to the author’s skill.
When the new Boritin space drive is fired up, it works, moving them faster than light, but in so doing, it takes them so far away that they cannot recognize any star patterns and are lost. Undaunted, they begin to explore and discover they have arrived close to an alien debris field, the remnants of a gigantic space battle involving several different species of aliens.
Aliens. I am always keenly interested in how other authors envision and present alien species. I’m not about to spoil this aspect for you, but I will say I was surprised by the originality of the author’s aliens. True, they pose a huge problem for Neil and the crew. What I truly enjoyed was the initial stark contrast between the alien civilizations and our own. I was surprised and amused to discover humanity’s positive aspects, such as love, compassion, and unwillingness to murder, rubbing off on a few of the aliens. The book ends in a cliff-hanger so be prepared to read the second in the series.
The originality, the character development, the realism, the plot and the action sequences are all good.
In the earlier e-book edition, the copy editing was extremely poor. Because of non-standard and sometimes incorrect or lack of punctuation, sentence fragments not part of someone’s speech, participial phrases modifying the wrong target, and more, the text then was very difficult to read. Often, I had to reread a paragraph several times to attempt to decipher what the author intended.
Important note: This is a new e-book printing and the author has made a drastic improvement in all these categories! While some of these still exist, they no longer impede reading this exciting novel.
I received a free copy of the earlier printing and the revised printing in exchange for my honest review.
