Présentation de l'éditeur

USA TODAY Best Selling Story.

From the author of The Slaver Wars comes a new military science fiction series.

To the Kleese, the Earth is nothing more than a planet full of conscripts to fight in their numerous wars of aggression. The Kleese are one of three large Galactic Empires that control the majority of the galaxy. To them, Earth is an extremely dangerous planet due to the aggressiveness of the humanoid species that inhabits it. The humans that inhabit Earth will make excellent conscripts, but something must be done to prevent them from expanding out into the galaxy. To the Kleese the solution is simple, take the conscripts they need and then destroy the planet.

Mason Randle controls the Smithfield Mining Corporation. His main headquarters is inside the asteroid Vesta. The Kleese know nothing about what resides inside of the asteroid and the role it will play in saving the human race.

Lieutenant Wade Nelson is a marine taken as a conscript by the Kleese. His primary goal is to find a way back to Earth. In the meantime, he will fight in the wars the Kleese are involved in until he knows enough to take the fight to the Kleese themselves. He will bid his time in the hope that someday he will find a way back home for himself and his marines.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 start of a great new series 19 juillet 2014
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The author specialised himself in epic stories spanning over several generation where humans have to fight for their own survival against determined aliens. Some aspects might be a little bit stretchy but the style is great, the story is sound and the scene is set for yet another great SF series.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great apocalyptic first contact story 21 avril 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Raymond L. Weil is another one of my favorite authors. This is the first book in what appears to be a new series from Mr Weil. I would say that this book is indeed my cup of tea. It pretty much starts of with a bang. Actually the start is almost a wee bit to apocalyptic, even depressing, but the rest of the book makes up for it.

For most of the book we get to follow two groups of humans. The survivors back in the solar system trying to make sure that the human race does not become extinct and the abducted humans that are forced to fight for the aliens and that are trying to get back home.

This is good science fiction. The science is quite well done. Sure, there have to be some fictional parts as well of course but on the whole it is quite well done and reasonably believable. The characters are enjoyable to follow and the story as a whole have a good pace and is generally fun to read.

The book have some similarities to The Human Chronicles series although take that very lightly. This book is much more realistic, do not focus so much on a single person and the humans are not the supermen that they are portrayed to be in The Human Chronicles books.

I am trying not to put too much spoilers in this review but the humans do gain some non-human friends who will play an important role in helping the humans explain to the Kleese that they might actually have made a mistake of rather epic proportions.

I really hope that there will be a second book in this series. The stage is indeed well set for one.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Boring, bland, and implausible 2 mai 2014
Par Cargus10 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This was a disappointing book at best. The characters are flat and one dimensional, and the plot development is rather awful. WARNING! SPOILERS AHEAD:

A lot of things were just utterly implausible The idea that the moon, Mars, and Vesta colonies could just whip up living space for millions of refugees on short notice is laughable. And no one ever challenges the authority of the people in charge. Everyone pretty much cooperates and gets along like good little boys and girls, and no one in power is corrupt or foolish or selfish or anything but smart and capable. And of course the evil overlord aliens are over-confident and stupid while the humans and their ally aliens are smart and resourceful and clever and dangerous. Naturally the friendly slave aliens invent a new weapon that the evil aliens don't even think of countering, despite having seen it up close. The technology appears to be simply made up. There seems to be artificial gravity on the colonies and ships, but no other spin-offs of such a miraculous tech are anywhere to be found. Alien ships are armed with fusion cannon (which is what exactly? Fusion is a process, not a thing. They can cause fusion when the beam hits something, maybe? How is unclear), Energy beams (whatever the hell those are. They aren't lasers, which are dissed early on as being ineffective and primitive, nor are they particle beams as THOSE are the new, secret super-weapon) that fire, well, "energy" of some kind that's not coherent light nor atomic particles at near light speed, which leaves what? microwaves? flame-throwers? infra-red heat beams? Who knows. There are also rail guns that fire inappropriately heavy rounds, and anti-matter missiles using a "sublight" drive that seems to get them to the target in a blink. I assume sublight means "barely" less than c. If so, why waste valuable antimatter in the warheads? The kinetic energy of the hit alone would be devastating.

But all this is just more annoyance layered on top of a very bland bunch of characters that can seem to do no wrong, ever, and who have all the emotion and likability of a turnip.

The man also needs an editor to point out stuff like how a rigidly structured society is a "caste" system, not a "cast" system, and that if one more character says something "evenly" (which happens about once per page) that the readers may hunt him down with torches and pitchforks, and evenly tell him what they think of it.

In all, save your money. This one isn't a stinker, but it's woefully unsatisfying and about as exciting as reading the back of a cereal box.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 This is not a good book. 3 juin 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Flat characters, absurd applications of technology, and silly situations. That's what I got from this book. You want fast paced action? Try the Koban Series, Evan Currie's books, or the Galaxy unknown series. You want Character development? Try Sara King's Zero Series. You want complex politics and subterfuge? Pick up Jay Allen's stuff. This book doesn't hold a candle to any of them. I know I'm being a little harsh here, but seriously, once you read any of those then this book just plain sucks. B.V. Larson's Star Star Force series, Randolph Lalonde's Spinward Fringe, Anthony DeCosmo's Beyond Armageddon. Go try those!

To the Author,

The first half of the book is decent. I was actually enjoying most of it. But then things felt rushed. Soon there was no detail, no follow through, just jumping from scene to scene. Even your grasp of the size of space is a little off. 300km is damn close is space, not "extreme range". Please, PLEASE, do a little more homework. Get a handle on the distances involved. The average distance from earth to Neptune is 4.7 BILLION km. That mean that the enemy fleet covered 4,700,000,000 km in 6 hours. 78333333 km/hr, 21759 km a second. If you had only taken more time, flushed things out a little more, done some basic googling and math, things would have turned out much better. Best of luck, if you can turn out another book in this series (which I think is likely seeing how many good reviews there are) I may give it a shot. I just hope that you can get a handle on how space actually works.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 I waded through 1/5th of the book waiting for a character 23 février 2015

Then I had to stop.
The characters read like a sheltered kid's interpretation of what people are like. The premise of a novel like this is nonsense, with hyper-technic civilizations needing humans to fight their wars. That's okay IF you are focusing on character, conflict, personal loss, growth, and transformation amidst conflict, or the triumph of good over evil. The author clearly has no intimate knowledge of any of these things, and the novel is left as an empty exercise in composition and structure. It makes me think of a gifted child, writing of subjects he has heard of but has no first-hand experience with and not enough life experience to at least cross correlate and make these things relatable at second hand. Move on reader. This well is shallow and sour.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 was it even proof read ? 22 mai 2014
Par john rodriguez - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
besides the author using certain words far too frequently (the word "lucrative" was used about 5 Times in the first few pages), I'd like to share one line that will hopefully explain how badly this was written. "the assault ship turned 360 degrees and left"... that line is in this book. if that line doesnt bother you... go ahead and buy this book. if it did bother you, keep reading.

the author also explains pretty much the same thing in every other chapter. i could have saved a lot of time if the book would have been written like this...chapter 1, things are bad. chapter 3, things are still bad, but we have a plan. chapter 5, things are still bad,put we still have a plan.chapter 7, still bad, still have a plan.final chapter, things are bad, but they could be worse....

the book did do a good job of explaining the technology behind it, like the space fold drive." it works by folding space! the more power you provide, the greater the effect!" you dont say... so the scientific understanding we aquired from alien tech. boils down to " you push this button to make it go". one of those two quotes is an actual quote from this book. ill leave it to you to decide which one.

tl;dr- cool concept, but the writer totally blew it.
