This is a cut above the rest of the free e-book brigade and the author shows definite promise. Captain Asari Raidan of the Imperial Starship Phoenix goes AWOL after attacking a seemingly innocent civilian convoy and Calvin Cross, the Commanding Officer of the IWS Nighthawk, is charged with finding him.This is a fluent, humorous read with only a few minor typos and I recommend snapping it up while it is still a free download. Definitely one for Star Trek fans. A sequel is on its way and I look forward to reading 'Betraying Nexus' and 'Civilization' when they are released.

Calvin Cross is the young and gifted captain of one of Intel Wings finest phantom class stealth warships. When he is sent to try and recapture a rogue Fleet Captain who has stolen one of the Fleets most powerful warships he finds himself questioning the man's motives. Why would an exemplary Captain who had been decorated several times turn rogue? Discovering more and more clues Calvin has to risk everything for himself and his crew on a hunch that there is much more to this than he is being lead to believe.

Science Fiction is my first love in literature, and this book really is a fine piece of science fiction! At almost 9000 Kindle locations long, this is a long read, but the time flew by as I found myself turning page after page to find out the next twist in the plot.

Another review mentions that this book would be enjoyed by Star Trek fans, and I have to agree. In fact it reminded me quite a lot of the original Captain Kirk era Star Trek. The technology is not over done and there are no long descriptions of equipment or machines. The technology is really just the backdrop for a great story of command and duty. Characters are strong and believable and the interplay between them is one of the strengths of the book. It's not perfect and in some places the writing seems slightly flat, but I have read far worse by some of the top names in the field.

Kindle presentation is very good throughout with only one or two very minor formatting errors, which I have to say is a great achievement in such a long story.

Overall: I would like to give this story 4 and a half stars, but as I can't do that it will have to be 5 stars.

At the time of writing, this book is free. There are a few reviews on here saying that this book is really bad/boring etc. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but it cost nothing, so the only thing you're down on is time.

I should point out that I found this book to be quite badly written. The book was full of clichés, the good looking captain, who although young has made it so far and always gets the job done even though he struggles to follow rules. The amazingly good looking, but uptight female lead, who you all know at some point will take off her glasses and take the band out of her hair to reveal she is every man's dream and not as tight as first perceived. We have mentions of vampires and werewolves, who at the end of the current story bear little relevance to the story.

Everything about this screams stop reading, but every time I heard that voice, I ignored it. There was something about this book that made me want to finish it. As badly written and predictable as it was, I liked it. The plot is good, if not obvious, and the characters, for all their obvious traits - were likeable. For a first book, this does show promise. I would hope that the author works hard on his style of writing for the future episodes, but for the price - it's worth a go.

Will I read the next in the series? At this point, I really don't know. I'd like to see how the story progresses, but I suspect that unless the preview of the next book shows serious improvement in the writing then I'll leave it alone.

Just finished this actually and really enjoyed it, keeeping my attention when I thought I'd dip in and out of it. Its a combination of a star trek type with a complex plot line and pulls you into mulling over what is right and what is not.

Only issue being that the sequel is not ready - however the opener packs a good punch.

This book is very much in the genre of the Pulp science fiction books
In the 50's they were priced at 10 cents, so free is okay for this book.
The tale could easily have been based on a current day ship travelling around the globe. Why would I say this? Well the plot is a standard conspiracy with an enemy, to over thrown the empire. What it lacks is the advance science that a true Sci-fi book deserves. Bullets on a spaceship .. come on! cells with iron bars, computer hard drives...these are even old hat today!!! The Author has forgot Frank Herbert, Arthur C Clark etc The beauty of a good Sci-fi is you can twist the story by the advanced technology, theory's and alien ideas. If he had used some of these unique tools open to a sci-fi writer, the tale could have been more adventurous and unpredictable. Then the book might truly reach the stars!
so sorry only three stars and half of those are for the cover of the book - typical of a pulp Sci-fi book, good cover mediocre read.
