Présentation de l'éditeur

During the 17th century The Royal Navy used military impressment as a means of taking men into service by force. Millennia later, the concept lives on in the Royal Terran Empire when the frigate HMSS Rubicon sends her impressment team, known as the “press gang” down to the planet New Dublin in order to feed her insatiable appetite for space fodder. The Captain’s word is law and his judgement is final. The punishment for a minor offence is a ship’s flogging. For serious crimes there is only one sentence---death! An impressed man has to be tough and a fast learner in the brutal environment of an interstellar warship. Killian Connacher is such a man. Wrenched brutally from his family and home world, he is immediately plunged into the turmoil of Marine training, interstellar intrigue, and space warfare as HMSS Rubicon sails through space on the galactic winds and waves of dark energy. Along his journey from civilian to hardened Marine, Killian has time to play a little football in battle armour, rescue his captain and a beautiful princess, and learn the hard lessons about life, death, friendship, love, duty, loss, and pain.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 This was not good 16 mai 2014
Par Wildwily - Publié sur Amazon.com

Moving beyond the mistakes (bo'sun not boson, and why would you would shorten coxswain to swain) and the blithering idiocy of having press ganged Marines in armor on the bridge within a week of their impressment. Overlooking the scheduled refit being due to the pitting and wear seen on the caracite hull, after having been told how impervious caracite is to damage unless struck by other caracite. Getting past the fact that all of the naval maneuvers take place in a single plane...in space...

Blistering pace - yes. Most writers would cover the events in this one book over several volumes.
Elements of a good story? Sure. Princess in peril, Marine to the rescue.
Plot holes? HUGE. How did Murphy get word back to slaughter the family? Why were the weakest ships constantly being place in the "van", as in FRONT, during the assault? Why was the purser French and evil?

The other reviewers clearly did not actually read the book. David Drake has a better eye towards how things function in a navy that uses press gangs. David Weber has more insight into midshipman.

100 lashes with a Cat O Nine Tails is a death sentence. Flogging was carried out with a more traditional whip.

The author lacks in the experience to make this novel a good purchase even at a reduced price.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Not a bad start, but it did not live up to the first couple of chapters 16 juin 2014

This was one of those books that I finished only because I had read about half of it. The first quarter of the book was pretty good, but then it just sort of fell apart. By the end of the book, I did not care what happened to the main character. I think I see what the writer was trying to do in character development, but he failed to take the reader (me) with him.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 good read... needs a little ironing out 19 mai 2014

It was an ok read that was exciting and then full at times. It felt like the parts that should have a lot of detail didn't and other less interesting parts were covered in too much detail... It would have been nice if it didn't jump around quite as much and there was more delineation between things happening at different times. Good read if you just need something to pass the time.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting mix of scientific and historical details 17 mai 2014

An enjoyable book with a twist on future space travel using seafaring concepts. The book flows well and is, with the exception of few "That cannot work" moments, a quick escape from reality.
2.0 étoiles sur 5 intriguing read! 12 août 2014

I enjoyed the premiss of the story, but could not get over the many grammatical errors. It felt like the book was sent out to print with out having editing. The story needs to be fleshed out more. I do not know about anyone else but had a hard time with the progression of the main character. Plus I barely swallowed the military aspect most relief soldiers would have issue with not going to basic especially any marines that I know off. Than the awarding of three specialty awards to individual without special training borders on contempt. The story is fair but can be hell of a lot better with editing and more basic military progression structure.
