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 .

This is the kind of book that you enjoy and even find amusing at times or that you dislike intensely because it is somewhat of a parody.

It is a highly and entertaining readable piece of Military space opera, with lots of hidden (and not so hidden) references to other similar works (Star Trek, but also Weber and Elisabeth Moon come to mind, among others) and to books on the Royal Navy during the Napoleonic Wars. The two main characters are largely inspired by Patrick O’Brian’s duo (Captain Aubrey/Doctor Maturin) who himself drew quite a bit of inspiration from C.S. Forrester (Captain Hornblower).

The context is largely unoriginal. Humankind has been fighting a losing war for thirty years against ruthless and fanatical aliens – humanoid rats – who are bent on exterminating it and will stop at nothing to do so. Our young hero, one young and dashing Lieutenant Commander Max Robichaux with Cajun ancestry, is given command of a state-of-the-art but problematic destroyer and sent of a mission which is, of course, crucial, and consists of disrupting the Krag’s (the name of the “humanoid rats” war effort. Naturally, our hero is tall, square shouldered, square jawed, wily as a fox, can do no wrong and just about walks on water, so the story if somewhat predictable, to put mildly.

It is also, predictably, action-packed – quite literally since just about everything takes place within a single month. Needless to say, not only is the expedition a roaring success but its results exceed by far what was the mission’s initial brief. It ends with Robichaux, his eccentric scientific doctor/friend Dr Sahin and his ship and crew gloriously saving a whole race from genocide from the awful Krags and accordingly gaining their undying gratitude and collaboration.

What a great new series this is. Characterisation was fine for a first book - leaving room for development in later books. Quite a few referernces to our history to give us understanding. Only slight weakness lies in realism of 24th century - still using keyboards anmd repairs all done manually?

If you enjoy for example the "Honor Harrington" series by David Weber, or the RCN series by David Drake, or possibly the "Out of the Black" series by Evan Currie then you should give this series a go. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

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.
