Présentation de l'éditeur

A captured Raider officer, eager to secure his freedom, informs Space Command Intelligence of a planned attack on a convoy by a massive Raider armada. An effective spotter network and intelligence system usually allows the pirates to avoid SC warships, so for the first time in Galactic Alliance history, a task force of Space Command warships might have an opportunity to engage a fleet of pirate ships in mortal combat.

The Space Command Admiral at Higgins SCB pulls out all stops to surreptitiously assemble a force of ten ships, the most that can be secretly diverted, to face off against the Raider ambushers. One of those ships happens to be the Prometheus. Jenetta Carver, the newest Lt. Commander in Space Command, on her way to Earth for a medal ceremony for acts of outstanding valor, finds herself again caught up in a life or death situation. The Prometheus arrives at the rendezvous point, a month from Higgins SC Base, to await the arrival of the other ships, and a call for help from the convoy.

Only two other ships have reached the RP when the convoy is attacked. Captain Gavin of the Prometheus, in his capacity as task force commander, decides that they can’t wait for the others, so the three SC warships race off to face a Raider warship force they expect will number forty plus.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Un grand plaisir honteux 18 janvier 2014
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Ce livre est un peu un plaisir honteux. Ce n’est pas très bien écrit, pas très bien édité, l’auteur a un certain nombre de tic d’écriture comme de donner systématiquement l’âge des protagoniste sans que ça apporte grand-chose. On se fiche éperdument que l’Amiral Machin ait 83 ans alors que l’Amiral Truc n’en ait que 77. Un autre élément énervant est que les meilleurs passages sont répétés souvent 2 fois (au moins) une fois comme une description des événements et une seconde fois comme dialogue entre 2 protagonistes mineurs qui reprennent généralement la description ‘in extenso’. La bonne chose c’est qu’il n’y a pas de contradiction, tout reste parfaitement cohérent. E façon amusante les deux défauts précédents se rejoigne dans un des derniers paragraphes, ou ses collègues rappellent à l’Amiral Hubera qu’il n’a que 83 ans et qu’il vivra probablement encore une cinquantaine d’années. Comme dans le contexte c’est amusant j’ai retenu le nom de l’Amiral en question. Je n’avais absolument aucun besoin qu’on me donne son âge avec sa description dans les premiers chapitres.

Je soupçonne l’auteur de vouloir faire trop bien, il doit avoir des fiches pour chaque personnage avec son âge sa taille la couleur de ses cheveux etc.. De même il doit avoir une description minute par minute de chaque combat, avec chaque torpille tiré par chacun des vaisseaux ce qu’elle devient. L’auteur ensuite écrit ses livres et veut utiliser tout son matériel au mieux.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Female version of Miles Vorkosigan? 30 septembre 2014
Par Ullmann
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Finished Book 2 of Galaxy Unknown. I must confess In enjoyed it. It's a bit like following the adventures of Miles Vorkosigan's unknown little sister (maybe the authors could arrange a meeting between the two, in an interdimensional adventure or something?). See what happens next...but it looks like Thomas DePrima is as acquainted with military way of thinking as Lois McMaster Bujold or Robert Heinlein were.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Valor at Vauzlee 12 septembre 2010
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This is the second book of the A Galaxy Unknown series and I would recommend reading the the first book before Valor At Vauzlee. If for no other reason than that the first book is truly enjoyable and would give you a better understanding of what happens in the second book.

I really liked this second installment and in some aspects it was better than the first book. The first book was great but as with all first books in a series it has to set the foundation for the universe it operates in, and that can take some focus of the overall plot at times. In the second book the story just grabs you from the first paragraf and does not let go untill the end. I could not put the book down and read the whole book in one setting, sleep be damned :-)

The main character, Jenetta Carver, is as strong, likeable and sympatetic as ever. The supporting characters is well drawn and I agree with another reviwer that the conversations between non-commissioned officers about the heroine was enjoyable.

The space battles was non stop action and it was written in a way that left me believe that I was right there with Jenetta on the bridge.

For me the main reason I like this series so much is not the great battles, the exciting plot or the fast action but rather Jenetta herself.
Even though Jenetta is undoubtably a brilliant millitary strategist and is both fysical and mentally strong, there is yet someting vulnerable about her that enables the reader to connect with her character. Well, that is my opinion anyway:-)

I will happily continue with this series and I cant wait the see what happens next.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 I bought it without regrets, but it could be a lot better. 9 octobre 2010
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I suppose it says something when I didn't hesitate to buy this as soon as it came out. I do wonder if the part of me that enjoys this book is the same part that enjoys beating grandma at Tekken or soloing the Deadmines at level 80. This is not your normal novel where the hero overcomes adversity to triumph at the end. This is a story where the main enjoyment is in seeing exactly how the hero will stomp the bad guys. The outcome is never in doubt.

It is a direct continuation of the first book. Our heroine (the supermodel-beautiful, immortal kungfu-master/tactician/strategist who heals like wolverine and feels pain as pleasure) is placed in situations in which she saves the day. Ancillary characters perform as expected to allow her to showcase her variety of skills. Her opponents are suitably evil and competent just enough to present the facade of a challenge. Her supporters show the requisite adulation, heaping praise upon her that she richly deserves. In due time, she even earns the grudging respect of the token holdout character.

The battle scenes are action-packed and fun to read. The pace is brisk and doesn't flag. The lack of any real dramatic tension is irksome, but I suppose this novel is more akin to a videogame than a traditional novel. It is probably difficult to generate dramatic tension when your protagonist is superman without the vulnerability to kryptonite. Mr DePrima has shown he can write pulp like a champion. I look forward to seeing what he can do once he gets a publisher and an editor.

An experienced editor could have added a lot. In my opinion, these books could have been a lot better without the unnecessary embellishments. Does the protagonists' immortality really add anything? Was her regeneration really necessary to the story? Did she really need to be transformed into a supermodel? Was the whole S&M thing really necessary to the story or her character development? If all this junk hadn't happened, the entire arc would have been a lot more plausible. The entire "genetically modified to be an S&M slave in a process that is somehow lost so that no one else will ever have it" thing just struck me as a bit of literary masturbation rather than real storytelling. Keep in mind all these events were from the first book and properly aren't objections to this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great addition to the series! 9 août 2010
Par BookHunt - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Same vein as the first, but bundles of space combat. Combat scenes had me grinning like a fool, and on the edge of my seat. I do wonder where her personal issues are going to lead though. With all that she had done to her, and what she can do, nothing was really discussed in this book. I would love to see more of that personal stuff come forward, without taking away from what we have seen so far.

The board of admirals have stocked up on casks of whine and cheese, despite all the fun. I can picture them perfectly when ever they talk lol. *grumble* /awe *grumble* but but but /sigh.

Keep up the good work and post more please!

I was completely enthralled through the entire book. There was non stop action throughout. I particularly enjoyed the conversations between non-commissioned officers about the heroine. Also, I thought the space battles were great, I would rank them just as exciting as the battles from Jack Campbell's The Lost Fleet series or Elizabeth Moon's Trading in Danger series.

I would recommend The Galaxy Unknown and Valor at Vauzlee to anyone, and if your a big science fiction buff who enjoys epic space battles then check this series out.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Great effort. 9 octobre 2010
Par Gastrinomicon - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
Wonderful plot and decent main character development, though aside from Jenetta most of the other characters seem like cardboard cutouts.

This reminds me of a younger, faster-paced Honor Harrington.

The only reason its not getting four stars is the horrible editing. Far too much hashing, re-hashing and re-re-hashing of previous events. If he were to replace two thirds of this needless filler with more detail about the secondary characters it would a far more interesting read. I understand its an unfotunate necessity to cover previous plot points when writing a series but this was just needlessly excessive. There were also far too many mis-spellings, dropped words and wierd shifting of tenses for a finished novel. It read more like second draft than a finished manuscript.

One last point. I understand that this is a space age science fiction novel but i dont need to be reminded every other paragraph that the furniture is all "oh-gee". i get it, stuff floats. move on.

anyways, i hope mr. DePrima does some polishing of the next installment because 80 percent of this stuff is great.
