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Ark Royal – the Royal Navy’s outdated space carrier – has won a smashing victory against the enigmatic aliens, capturing one of their starships and returning to Earth.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

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

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.

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.

Wonderfully engaging Space Opera. This is the second of the series. While it works standalone, I recommend reading "Ark Royal" first.

If you are reading this, Mr. Nuttall, don't you *dare* leave us hanging with some kind of side novel. We want book 3 of the series.

Like the first book this one is also well written. The plot and sub-plots works well together. The author asks if they should book 3 or different view from earth first. My vote is for book 3. I would like to see the conclusion to this story first.
