About the Author

Endi Webb has lived in Los Alamos NM, Seattle WA, Salt Lake City UT, and currently hangs out in Huntsville AL. He has a Ph.D. in experimental physics, loves science--both fiction and otherwise, and has a strange fascination with tomatoes. At work, he gets to make nano-materials (really small things) with giant lasers and highly pressurized gas. His clients include NASA, the defense department, and many other government agencies that don't like to be advertised. A lover of all things Star Trek, Star Wars, and Battlestar Galactica, Endi spends his time either blowing stuff up in his lab (true story), reading and watching Sci-Fi, or playing with his kids and bringing them up in his nerdy ways. Live long and may the force be with you. Contact him on twitter (@endiwebb), Facebook (facebook.com/endiwebb), or his website (endiwebb.com). Email: authorendiwebb@gmail.com.

If you like your science fiction with page turning action, exploding ships, rising piles of bodies, sadistic commanders, wise-cracking, gun-wielding tattooed women, and new outlandish military tactics - this is for you.
I certainly enjoyed the packed and often unexpected thrills but the, mostly, fast moving action and large cast of protagonitss failed to also provide good character development despite frequent memory flashbacks and reminiscences. Indeed, I occasionally found the who is who confusing especially when one or other of the two vividly bestudded female soldiers was mentioned, especially given their names - Anya (also called Grace) and Ayala (or Ensign). This, together with the feeling that the whole premise of the rebellion taking place at the time chosen and the apparent expectation that such a plan stood any chance of staying secret long enough amongst so many for it to be put into practise was completely unrealistic, has resulted in the mere three star rating.
But don't be deterred: it is still a pretty good read and I look forward to the next adventure.

If you're looking for something deep, the likes of which you'd expect from Ringo or Weber you'll be disappointed. This is relatively lightweight and sometimes the plot is rather thin.

However, it's an enjoyable read and looks to be a promising start to the series.

A space war between Rebels from Earth and Corsican Empire that pushes to 1000 occupied planets - no guessing who's right there. War as imagined in computer games: flashing "ion beams" and spectacular explosions, no real blood, no observable death. Two-dimensional characters with traditional matey cheerful back slapping and pubescent boys jokes. The pilot of a space ship looks out of the window (!) up (!) to see another spaceship. He also pushes the accelerator pedal to boost his gravity drive, just like in Ford T.

Sci fi is something of a new genre for me, and I was really hoping that the story wouldn't be lost in technology which would go over my head....

Fortunately, I was worried about nothing. The story flowed well, and the only tech speak was part of the story which left me as confused as Lt Comm Mercer!

The story was enhanced by the difference in feel (which may just have been my perception) when writing about Trajan. I REALLY didnt like that guy.

Overall, a solid, engaging and well written story which left me looking forward to the next in the series.

This review is based on an ARC copy which I received in exchange for an honest review.

Autocratic interstellar empire at war with a small set of intrepid freedom fighters. Lots of political intrigue and twists to the plot as well as battles in space and on the ground, something for everyone.

What a great start to a new lengthy series. Action from the beginning. A great initial book explaining the situation and setting up the main characters, loved the tongue in cheek humour and innuendo. Left me wanting more.

Classic Space Opera, battles, laser' s finite and infinite speeds all told in a great story with strong characters, with a different viewpoint as Earth as the weak member of galactic empire of Ancient Rome structure but in revolt. Down

I very rarely fail to finish a book, but not only did I not finish it I deleted it from my Kindle and library. It harks back to writing style of the 1950's but does it very badly.
