Présentation de l'éditeur

Ark Royal – the Royal Navy’s outdated space carrier – has won a smashing victory against the enigmatic aliens, capturing one of their starships and returning to Earth. Now, Admiral Theodore Smith and his crew are assigned to command a fleet charged with making a deep-penetration raid into alien territory, a fleet made up of carriers from four different nations.



But with a crewman who isn't what he seems, untested pilots and international friction – and a new and dangerous alien plan - can Ted and his crew survive their mission ... or will they die, alone and unremarked, hundreds of light years from home?



[Like my other self-published Kindle books, The Nelson Touch is DRM-free. You may reformat it as you choose. There is a large sample of the text – and my other books – Try before you buy.]

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Mr Nuttall has the 'touch' on this sequel 24 mars 2014
Par Gregg Miller - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Sequels, that word brings up a dread feeling inside. Will one be as good as 'Empire Strikes Back'? Or, will we be forced to endure 2 hours of JarJar Binks? The Nelson Touch is the Empire Strikes Back to the Ark Royal series. We see Admiral Smith dealing with now no longer being in command of Ark Royal, Captain Fitzwilliam dealing with being a captain, Kurt and his personal problems and dealing with being CAG, Lieutenant Lopez and Rose are back as well. We get to see the Royal Marines (along with the United States Marines) make combat drops. This book delivers. The author has 2 more books lined up .. and I hope he has more.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 better than the first! 23 mars 2014
Par Charles Almond - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is the much anticipated sequel to Ark Royal, and it was worth waiting for. The new crewman who is not what he seems to be adds a depth and a twist to the story I wasn't expecting. This is classic space opera at its best.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Nelson Still Has the Touch 3 avril 2014
Par J. Perez - Publié sur Amazon.com

What I would have liked to know before I bought this book. (no spoilers)

1. What type of book is it: action, drama, etc? This book is a military sci-fi action book. Part of the book focuses on establishing a story path. The hand of the author is lightly present, but still felt.

2. What is the story about, in general? The story is about the 2nd expedition of the Ark Royal fleet. It embraces multiple topics of contention from character family relationships, and the age old problems of royalty within the roles of a nation, to military cultural differences between allied powers.

3. What/Who is the target audience? I believe the target audience is young adult and adult males. One main character is deliberately targeting young adults. Another main character targets older adult males.

4. Is there character development? Yes and no. Only two characters shoulder the burden of evolving character development. The rest have fairly established their resolutions and don't provide significant emotional and drama conflict. One of the characters is being introduced for further story in the next book, and has slightly unsympathetic troubles. I like the duality of inexperienced and seriousness this character portrays. The other is our favorite CAG. I find his problems very realistic if a bit over-pronounced to ensure reader attention. Most young adults will not be able to empathize with his problems, but older readers might.

5. Are the characters likable? I found the characters no more likable or unlikeable than the previous books. The new characters in this volume are not rounded or formed enough to gain a defining mold for their personality. This is done deliberately as a stepping stone for further story in the next book. Because of this, I find those characters incomplete, though realistic in personality troubles.

6. Does the story keep its pacing? For the most part, it does. I had to browse more in this volume, than the previous one, because of certain clichés that felt `introduced' to the story instead of `developed' with the story. Nevertheless, the book is entertaining. The enemy remains smart and adaptable, and the tether for humanity's survival keeps getting artistically shorter.

7. Do you have to suspend disbelief? For the most part, no. Only one character strained my disbelief and it was a clear `hand of the author' moment where a certain outcome is desired no matter how improbable it is.

8. Is the book worth the asking price? Oh yes, $4 is still a good price.

In conclusion: A solid sequel to Ark Royal. The character development, of most of the cast, is stunted in preference for spending page time on the evolution of a new character and the CAG. Most of the characters simply have roles that expand, but their evolution does not deviate from those roles. The book suffers from 'mid series' issues of teasing and incompleteness. A few minor cliches, and two related improbable events, strained my disbelief and indifference, a tad. The events are linked to one character and are obvious directional 'pushes' by the author that are aimed towards a following volume. The book is still quite entertaining and the price remains acceptable.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Some potential - a review for the entire series 5 août 2014
Par Logan Greenlee - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
These books as a whole are entertaining to read. Christopher clearly has a creative mind but the writing across the entire series needs some work.

The biggest issues I had with the entire series:

Repetition: In an effort to provide filler material certain subjects are rehashed time and time again. Typically it is "background" material. For example, the dispositions of pilots. "Pilots are prima donnas because they could die at any moment". This particular item is written in one way or another at least 6 times. A similar type of descriptive information about Sin City was restated again and again. Ark Royal was characterized again and again and again. It really is to the point of annoyance and happens throughout all three books of the series.

Lack of innovation: One of my greatest appreciations of sci-fi is that it can be used to really explore new concepts and ideas. These ideas do not have to be technological, they can also be societal. The entire series lacked creativity in this regard. I am not even sure the tram line concept is based on anything in particular. There was a description of "real space" drives that allow the ship to stop and speed up quickly but then much discussion about classical physics and "ballistic trajectories". It was only until late in the series was there a real discussion about the delays associated with space communications. Nano bots were thrown around as well but only for particular applications.

Lack of description: Instead of re-hashing the same descriptive blocks I would have like to have seen a better description of what the ships looked like - especially ark royal. I had little sense of scale during battles or recon activities.

Lack of depth: Over three books it could be possible to have a wider set of characters and perspectives. For example, the cyborgs who were placed on New Russia, what happened to them? That thread was never followed up. Other parts of humanity and their reaction to the events could have been a part.

Sex: I really did not like the use of sex throughout the series. There are other series where I found it to be acceptable but I did not feel that it added anything substantial and was a bit "trashy".

I felt the conclusion to book III was not very well done and that is was a "cheap" ending.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Very disappointing! 12 mai 2014
Par Marta R Komosiesnki - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I was very disappointed with this book!
First because it ended up to be just another of the endless series that I, at my age, might never see the end. I figured by 55% of the book that there was not "time" to solve all the puzzles the author tossed at us or the conclusion of the book would be a rushed and ridiculous end. I kept reading in a faint hope I was wrong. Well, unfortunately I was right!
The fact that all the battles and "traps" and mysteries surrounding the aliens were just the same as the first book just masked in different words, didn't help much either.
I did appreciate the human stories but other than that it was cliche! I will not comment the end of the book because I hate when people do that to me, but when you get to the end (if you decide to read the book after all), remember I asked you: COULD IT BE MORE CLICHE THAN THAT?!?!?
