This is a book that will remind you of old time Sf. Space Opera with real men fighting real aliens and trying to save the Galaxy. It is a good attempt to write old style Sf and it reminds me of the time more than fifty years ago when I started reading Sf. It is a fun read, a good story and it flows along very well. It is the start of a series that could go on for a long time if the author so choses.

But unfortunately there are a number of things that makes you laugh out but for a different reason. It is just some very silly facts that are brought into the story that makes you wonder.

Lets start with our "hero", the new space destroyer captain. He is a 28 years old officer who went out into space at the age of ten and now is not only a combat veteran but also a tactical and technical genius. Who would put a 28 year old officer in charge of a destroyer in the Navies of today? Being a military man myself I can only smile at this idea. Or maybe a space destroyer is so much easier to command than a destroyer of today?

It is the year 2315 and for some reason computer technology must have stopped developing around 2015 because there is almost nothing in the book done by computers that can not be done today. Instead of having a spaceship run by computers, it is run by people.

It is the year 2315 and space soldiers still use pistols M1911! A four hundred year old personnel weapon! Not only that, they use 7,62/51 mm ammunition in their rifles as well. Not to mention that they also use swords...But in order to make this a space variant of old sailing ship combat I can accept the swords.

In 2315 people still use reading glasses and their "telephones" are made by Nokia!

This was good read and an enjoyable one at that. The nod to the O'Brian novels is clear and maybe too similar at times. I am not wholly convinced if the future world technology and contexts created but I fully appreciate the soul and sentiment intended by the author. I look forward to reading and I'm enjoying most if the characters. Well done to the author .

I started reading and thought wow but as I progressed I became less impressed. The central characters are peculier. The skipper, newly promoted at age 26, has been everywhere, done everything and bought the t shirt. The doctor, also 26, has qualifications in medicine and diplomacy and is a crack shot and expert swordsman. They have a mountain of arcane and obscure knowledge that they proclaim at every oportumity, great for product length but it slows the story down. They spot every difficulty before it becomes a problem so there is no drama. They are always right every time and why stuff a ship with so many spare parts if nothing ever goes wrong or gets damaged. There is very little action and when there is some the ship is never under any real threat and is always victorious. I could go on but you get the drift, it is simply too unrealistic. No more for me.

There was something nice and Star Trek about this book. It erred sometimes in giving too much detail, but was a good substantial military sci-fi book overall.

This bears more than a passing resemblance to the Aubrey-Maturin series of novels by Patrick O'Brian, though this is more than a straight "Haratio Hornblower to Honor Harrington" cut and paste. Captain Max Robichaux is the Lucy Jack Aubrey of the stars who along with his Ships "Bones" Doctor Ibrahim Sahin who is Captain Robichaux's Stephen Maturin.

I enjoyed this thoroughly and have downloaded the second in the series already. It's just the ticket for those who enjoy both science fiction and the Aubrey-Maturin series of novels by Patrick O'Brian there is a resemblance, but if anything as a Homage. It's well thought out and even though it's set in the 24th Century it doesn't make silly analogies to the Royal Navy of Nelson, there is no Rum, Sodomy or the Lash and thankfully no 2D ship of the line tactics.

If you like military SF - Moon, Weber et al, you will love this. Typical of the genre it builds on historical naval traditions - but this is one of the best I have read - and I have read most. The characters are great, the plot and story are great and the writing is excellent. Can't wait for the final instalment. Why on earth don't Amazon allow you to flag particular authors so you are notified when anything new comes out - even Apple have caught on to that one! Try the sample if you aren't sure; you have nothing to lose and perhaps you will discover a new favourite.

If you love harcdore Military Scifi with a really vivid, well crafted and executed plot, then this book is it. Real character depth, excellent story and once read, you're totally hooked.
I read this in one sitting and just could not put it down. It ranks equally with the best from Weber, Stross and other brilliant authors in the genre.

Buy Buy Buy! - you won't be disappointed!!..well done guys and I can't wait for the 2nd novel (and more) in the series.
