Présentation de l'éditeur

Earth is not alone. There is a towering civilisation out in the galaxy, far greater than anything we can imagine. But we are isolated from the galaxy ... until now.

When a bunch of interstellar scavengers approach Earth, intending to abduct a few dozen humans and sell them into slavery in the darkest, they make the mistake of picking on Steve Stuart and his friends, ex-military veterans all. Unprepared for humans who can actually fight, unaware of the true capabilities of their stolen starships, the scavengers rapidly lose control of the ship – and their lives.

To Steve, the captured starship represents a great opportunity, one to establish a new civilisation away from Earth and its increasingly oppressive bureaucracy. But with the aliens plotting their revenge and human factions suspicious of the new technology, it will be far from easy to create a whole new world ...

my comments are usually concise but I will make an exception because this book had trigger a bad, very bad reaction.

What a childish story of brave old cowboy style Americans take over the solar system and rejecting everything which is not in favour of the second amendment and who builds a society far better than anything on Earth, especially better than any not English Speaking countries forgetting that the foundations the US and Australia were built upon the genocide of Native Americans, the Native Australians. All being very white in those countries and everything being very black in all the other countries (especially Russia and China).

And then Mali is an African state and not Malé the capital Island of the Maldives.

But then the author is Nuttall. The same who wrote the Democracy series which is a a master piece of analysis around the government topic.

So I give him the benefice of doubt and let him unfold the story in the second book... Mali must have been a very unfortunate typo error for Malé

HASH(0x8afb3ad4) étoiles sur 5 Good but way too preachy 9 mars 2014
Par Zor - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This book should have been a 5 star. The story is interesting, and it fulfills many of my fellow sci fi fans
daydreams about finding such a ship and changing the world. I have some of the same libertarian tendencies
of the main character, and I don't know whether these views are Mr. Nuttall's own, strictly the views of the
main character, or some combination of the two, but I resent being preached at so much. The author could
have provided the motivation for the main character and his ideology, without going into such preaching detail
over and over again. It starts to detract from the story. I love the author's other books and am a big fan, but I
was a little disappointed bringing so much ideology and politics into what would have been a good story on its
own. However it was good enough that I would certainly buy a second book in the story.

HASH(0x8afb3d20) étoiles sur 5 Straddling the Fence Between Action and Social Science Fiction 16 mars 2014
Par lawboss - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I have read many of Nuttall's works--he puts out a lot of novels in a short amount of time--and for this I am impressed and grateful. I am not a fan of social science fiction--in part because few authors have the skill set necessary to opine on the subject--Heinlein set a pretty high bar. Nuttall does, however, fill his stories with enough military science fiction to allow the reader to overlook the soap box political aspects found in his reads.
Oddly, the "Afterword" found at the end (obviously) of the book contained a far better discussion of the subject than what we were given in the storyline. I do not complain that the characters made mistakes in building their government--my issue is the book did not focus on the dire need and steps necessary to learn from those mistakes. Really--almost committing genocide isn't enough for a huge wake up call? An attitude of gosh--maybe we need to change a few things is not the response I would expect. The characters did not, as Nuttall would like to tell us, "grow and develop" -- a "Wild West" approach to governance hardly makes a political statement.
Perhaps this is my frustration with social science fiction--just as you don't abuse the laws of physics when writing a good science fiction piece--don't pontificate on politics unless you intend to do the subject justice.

HASH(0x8afb3ce4) étoiles sur 5 A Moderately Fun yet Contradicting Experience 20 mars 2014
Par J. Perez - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
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 is a book with a healthy amount of action. There is a large amount of politically minded ultra conservative verbosity that crosses the line from fictional characterization into advocacy.

2. What is the story about, in general? The story is about ultra-right wing military trained conservatives that, through the help of alien technology, forsake the intolerably flawed United States to build their own nation. They also defend the Earth from a very hostile galaxy where everything goes.

3. What/Who is the target audience? I believe the target audience is young adult males.

4. Is there character development? No. The characters in this story have general specific traits and do not deviate at all from their assigned roles. Even those that change within their roles, do so very slightly. One of the main characters almost -almost- has a personality flaw, but that flaw never provides momentous changes within the story. That's pretty much it.

5. Are the characters likable? I have to answer this question from two directions. As gun-ho folks that act like cowboys with bazookas with a desire to express their Dirty Harry awesomeness on alien butts, they are likable.

Beyond the previously mentioned actions, the characters are too extreme for my liking. Their reasons have a certain cold blooded lack of empathy and little desire for compromise. In fact, the main characters act like bullies while spouting constant extreme right wing political dogma. Anyone who disagrees with the perfect logic of their society is considered an idiot, corrupt, both or a rival. I don't mind political views in books, whether from the extreme right or extreme left. Yet, there has to be a limit. My limit was well crossed in this book. It is a truly self aggrandizing spew that simply doesn't end. It gets to the point of: Enough with the `Only the Elite deserve to be with us' talk. Let's get back to the story! Oh, crap, the story IS about `Only the Elite deserve to be with us!'

6. Does the story keep its pacing? Yes and no. I enjoyed both the description of better opportunities and the nation building of the book. I did find the nation building simplistic because it was too detailed! Yes, I know is a contradiction. Most of the `nation building details' were of administrative and legal matters, where events were discussed after they had occurred. The reader isn't part of said events. There is no dialogue involved, only narration of: `Hey that thing happened. How do we legally deal with it?' So, those moments are discussed in detail after the fact, but are too simple for the scope of what the book is trying to explain and achieve. Thus, those moments drag the story and kill its pacing. I ended browsing too much.

Now, when it comes to the combat scenes, they are interesting. Yet, the opponents are so underwhelming that I'm only moderately entertained.

7. Do you have to suspend disbelief? Hmm, a little. I like the very hostile galaxy. It allows for a lot of possibilities and good story conflict. I found the simplistic nature of the current extraterrestrial enemy to be too simple to believe.

I found the character created super elitist `my hammer speaks for me, my nation is epic because I am epic, we shall conquer the solar system and the galaxy while providing humanitarian aid to show our awesomeness to the poor schmucks that don't agree with us' society a little Fascist. How it seems to, later, easily change from Fascism to democracy, frankly strains my disbelief.

My disbelief is also strained by the ever present conflicting dogma of providing small businesses with opportunities, while hand in hand with minor regulation to BIG business (a contradiction right there as big businesses have a tendency to crush small businesses if not well regulated). In fact, the very FIRST company to have a spot in the 'haven for small businesses' is a company incorporated in multiple nations! Practically screaming BIG business. I wouldn't normally care about this side of the book, but since a lot of it IS sociopolitical I would feel remiss if I didn't touch on it.

8. Is the book worth the asking price? It is a $3 book. Yes, it is worth it. I have no problem with this price at all.

In conclusion: An action driven sociopolitical sci-fi book with characters that have no individualistic flaws to give them personality. Their roles are predominantly rigid. The political dogma and extremism seen in the book is too predominant to be attributed to any particular character, and thus is not a character flaw. The human conflicts fall in line with stereotypical archetypes of traditional enemies of the United States and its internal political contentions. The extraterrestrial enemies are interesting in their social structure, yet underwhelming in their simplicity. Nevertheless, it is a moderately entertaining read that is well priced.

I understand this review might clash with the political ideals of some, but my only intention is that readers receive relevant information that will help them choose whether to purchase this ebook or not. I hope it has been helpful.

HASH(0x8afb3fd8) étoiles sur 5 Had to bail early (caution, minor spoilers) 8 avril 2014
Par Robert Hafernik - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I was kind of enjoying this book for the first few dozen pages, but then they started to "colonize" the moon using "modified human vehicles and mining tools." Say what? Do you know what it would take to "modify" a normal bulldozer to work on the moon? You'd have to convert it all to electricity (no air for internal combustion engine on the moon), re-work all non-metal parts (windscreen, handles on knobs, rubber pedals, hydraulic system, etc, to deal with lunar temperatures), new tracks (one-sixth gee would make terrestrial tracks nearly useless) and so on and on. Then they dig and line and seal all sorts of tunnels, with no hint of what equipment could do this (not easy to do on earth) or where the materials come from.

The characters (in the little time I spent with them) seemed fairly caricature-ish. I do give the author credit for the cute idea of unusually stupid aliens, but you have to wonder how they survived long enough to get to earth.

The book pays very little attention to science or logistics and those were deal breakers for me. Your mileage may vary.

HASH(0x8afc1054) étoiles sur 5 Very poor, especially from this author. 28 mars 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This is the worse book I have read from from this author. Instead of the space adventure it purports to be, it's a vehicle for the authors political and ethical opinions, particularly political. Almost a series of political monologues held to gather wit a little high tech and familiar emotions. It has its moments but overall it is an unbelievable story, even given the suspension of disbelief reserved for a space adventure. Would have been better if the situations arose naturally rather than appearing to have come from a preconceived agenda.
