Présentation de l'éditeur

For the first time, all three short stories that introduce the Slaver Wars science fiction series are together. The Slaver Wars has currently sold over 100,000 copies. Read how it all began.

Disaster has struck the first Moon landing to be attempted in years. Commander Jason Strong and his fellow lunar explorer Greg Johnson have become stranded with no way home. In desperation, they set off in their lunar rover to check out an anomaly they discovered on their descent. What they find will shake their beliefs and what they know of human history. It is the beginning of an adventure that will take them far out into the Solar System and to a discovery that is beyond belief.

Supposedly written in english, no mastering of the language: gate instead of gait, obliviously instead of obviously, etc. The same sentences are repeated over and over, sometimes bringing the action to full stop.
Characters lack about everything to be realistic; plot poorly imagined (discovered aliens are humans, they fight a threatening lizard species, AI are sexy females, etc).
Look somewhere else.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not horrible 10 mars 2014
Par Joseph C. Barker - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Had a few issues with this book. The authors really bad habit of repeating information over and over was one of the biggest. Greg has got to be the biggest coward in the galaxy. Why on earth he's an astronaut is baffling. "Is this safe?" "Are you sure this is safe?" Come on man! Grab your balls! The relationship between Commander Strong and his sister is borderline incestuous. Is she your sister or your wife? The way he is constantly worried about what she thinks about his decisions makes it seem like they are married. Anyway, nice effort, but I probably won't read much more by this author.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 A predictable plot that reads like the original Battlestar Galactica written in Up-Goer-Five. 29 juin 2014
Par Bryan G - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I can live with poor writing, provided the plot and characters are solid. I can handle a crummy plot, provided the prose is good.

Unfortunately "Moon Wreck" fails on both fronts - this is a book full of laughably bad writing, coupled with zero-dimensional simplistic characters, and a predictable plot that reads like the original Battlestar Galactica written in Up-Goer-Five.

Where to begin? Well, to begin with the beginning, the warning signs are right there in the opening two sentences:

"Mission Commander Jason Strong stared at the damaged lunar lander with a sick feeling in the pit of his stomach. His best friend and copilot Greg Johnson was standing next to him."

Daring, Tom-Swift-style WASP hero? Check. Disaster in space? Check. His best friend by his side? Check. Oh dear, I should have stopped there.

Over the next 150 pages, we learn that Greg has an infant son back on Earth. We know this because we are told so 29 times. We also learn that Greg hopes that his son will one day follow his father into space, something we are told 9 times. Strangely, we never do find out the name of Greg's son, or anything else about Greg for that matter.

People in this book smile a lot (50 times) and convey emotions with their eyes (102 times), but oddly always speak in full sentences with almost no contractions or colloquialisms. Expert trained astronauts repeatedly ask obvious questions of each other, presumably for the benefit of the reader. The aliens learn to speak English almost immediately, and have suspiciously Anglo-sounding names like "Andrew Benson".

And to cap it off, there's an undercurrent of sexism that runs throughout. The main female character in the book is always referred to as "Lisa", while most other people besides the two leads, Jason and Greg, are referenced by their last names. We hear repeatedly that Lisa has deep blue eyes and blonde hair, while never learning anything at all about the physical appearance of her fellow male astronauts. When Lisa boards the spaceship for the first time, we are told that she has a "look around, recognizing that these quarters could certainly use a woman's delicate touch".

The only three other female characters to appear in the book are described as (1) "gorgeous" with "deep dark eyes", (2) "a brunette and very striking", and (3) "a pretty blonde with deep blue eyes".

This is writing for tweens, without the sophistication. Please. Stop.

I was fooled by "The Slaver Wars" thinking it might be a fan fiction prequel taking place in Larry Niven's Known Space. Boy, was I ever wrong.

Two human astronauts in Earth's near-ish future sent to explore the possibility of commercializing the moon crash land after a mysterious "frequency" disables their landing computer. How their spaceship otherwise survived the Van Allen radiation belt and high energy EMF in outer space is beyond me, but this is space opera so who cares?

In spite of the indecision that plagues every paragraph of their atrocious dialog afterwards, their quick thinking saves them from immediate death. They use their moon rover to hunt for the source of the electromagnetic interference. I presume they find an alien artifact and maybe eventually some conflict, but I don't know for sure since I gave up reading this book by then.

The other one and two star reviews cover the shortcomings in this story, but to review:

* Uninteresting, unsympathetic, interchangeable characters. One of them is married and has a kid, the other is single and has a sister. We're reminded of this over and over, but otherwise no other details about either person. The hotshot Air Force test pilot whines incessantly about the itch behind his left knee that he can't get at inside of his space suit while the engineer is stumped to inaction by every minor problem.

* Wooden dialog. "What do we do now?" Greg asked, perplexed. "How do we navigate without the guidance computer?" ¶ "I guess we do it the old fashioned way," Jason replied. It didn't seem if they could catch a break. "We have detailed maps, which show the lunar surface."

* Non-existent editing.

* We don't care what happens next. There's no action, nothing happens to move the story along.

* It's written as a boring, no details algebra word problem. Greg and Jason drove five miles today, drank a liter of water, consumed 28 grams of lunar rations. They were tired so went to sleep. Tomorrow, I'm sure we can anticipate more of the same. Dullsville.

This is a really good read, definitely a page turner, and easy to read - doesn't get too bogged down in techno-babble, and keeps your interest all the time.

I read the write up on the first book and decided to download it to my Kindle. It turned out to be an adventure I could not put down. I find myself rationing the time I read one of these books because I do not want them to end. When I read the first short story, I knew I would be a fan for life. When the newest book is released, I download it that same day. THANKS Raymond for a really great series. I look forward to the remaining books . . .and will keep the previous ones to reread when memory dims.
