Présentation de l'éditeur

Humanity has been ravaged by alien war. Will the next encounter spell the end of mankind?

3 books and 1,200+ pages of alien invasion and interstellar action. Over 250 five-star ratings on Goodreads!

Sixteen billion people died in the last alien invasion of the Alliance's colony worlds. When survey ship Captain Jeff Colgan discovers a new alien race, he's required to investigate. But what if the life form is as deadly as the Merkiaari?

As the aliens discover Colgan's ship and begin to hunt him down, the captain's mission changes from one of study to one of survival.

Nanotechnology was all that kept humanity afloat in their brutal war against the Merkiaari, and it led directly to the creation of vipers, a regiment of cyborg super soldiers tasked with protecting the Alliance. When Gunnery Sergeant Gina Fuentez finds one of the fabled viper cyborgs in a terrorist camp during a mission, her squad comes under attack. Two members of her squad are dead, and she'll face the same fate if she can't escape the ensuing firefight.

General Burgton's self-imposed mission is to safeguard the alliance from future Merkiaari attacks. As the black missions Burgton authorizes begin to fail, he spends trillions of dollars on a forbidden solution: artificial intelligence. When the project collapses, Burgton compounds his crime. If he can't build an A.I., he'll just have to steal one!

The Merkiaari Wars Series: Books 1-3 includes the first three installments in an epic space opera about space exploration and alien invasion. If you enjoy military science fiction stories that mix philosophy with political intrigue, then you'll love Mark Cooper's unequivocal masterpiece. Pick up this box set, and you'll get a free two-chapter preview of Operation Breakout (book 4).

Author Interview

Q - What inspired you to write The Merkiaari Wars?
A - I love science fiction and space opera. I can never read enough futuristic war novels about galactic empires! I always write books that I would read myself. When people ask me about other author's novels, I tell them to try the books I love. Books like C J Cherryh's Chanur series. I absolutely devoured them. Did you know my aliens, the Shan, were inspired by Chanur? I love the idea of cat-like aliens. My space battles are David Weber's fault. I could never get enough of Honor Harrington. And lastly, I couldn't possibly ignore his collaborations with John Ringo. John’s Empire of Man series is EPIC!

Q - What order should I read the books in?
A - Although each book in the series "could" be read as a standalone book, I don't recommend it. Each one is intricately woven into the overall story arc and linked to the plots of the previous novels. I'd suggest the following sequence:
- Hard Duty
- What Price Honour
- Operation Oracle
- Operation Breakout
- Incursion (TBA)

Q - So, why should readers give these books a try?
A - Because the Merkiaari Wars series is a fast and fun story full of interstellar action that takes no prisoners! Each of the books is packed with futuristic space battles or ground warfare with high stakes -- mankind's extinction. Ultimately, readers who enjoy lightning-fast pacing about space exploration and alien invasion in a far future time will love the series.

Même si Mark É. Cooper n'a pas révolutionné le genre, son mélange du roman militaire avec le Space opéra tient bien la distance. Les protagonistes ne sont pas tous omniscients et infaillibles, ce qui est rafraîchissant. Il leur arrive de mourir. Et ils évoluent avec l'histoire. Bref, une bonne série que je recommande.

Vous aimez un bon Space Opera ? Alors c'est une excellente adresse où il faut vous arrêter. J'aurais bien mis cinq étoiles parce que les personnages sont sympas et la trame intéressante (bien qu'un peu sur utilisée ces derniers temps avec une autre race de tueurs psychotiques qui envahissent l'espace humain...) mais il y a des longueurs et des baisses de régime qui font un peu remplissage mais rien qui donne envie d'arrêter de lire. Pour ce prix une excellente affaire. Le quatrième volume est sympa mais ça tire un peu en longueur. On attend malgré tout la suite avec impatience.

HASH(0x92e177b0) étoiles sur 5 A very entertaining read, but the story does not have a strong ending (You have to buy more books in other words) 11 septembre 2014

This was a decent read. The characters were well developed and the story line was smooth, interesting and energetic. The 3 books together is a must. Any 1 of the books would have been a waste. Together they were 1 book barely. Even here the author feels the need to leave dangling loose ends to try to entice you to buy the next book. It always leaves me feeling unfinished. A book should have a beginning, middle, end. There can be other books with the same settings and/or characters. Just finish the story you are telling, then tell the next. The current Sci-Fi trend of making every story a continuous soap opera that never has an ending is really getting old. I am tired of authors trying to get me to buy many books for what should have been 1.

HASH(0x92e179fc) étoiles sur 5 Hard to get into and stay with.... 14 août 2014
Par Nate - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I wanted to really like this series. However, the best I can do is say it's ok. I really struggled with the constant, jarring POV shifts. As soon as I'd get into a scene and invest some energy into getting into a character, the story would be off to something completely different with no real continuity. TBH, I found it somewhat exhausting to read at points. There is also an extraordinary amount of wasted words. Entire sections, while certainly showing great imagination and adding color to the 'universe', do nothing to advance the story and end up breaking it up more than helping. So, while liking the core of the story and a lot of where the author tried to go, I personally couldn't manage very well how it was all put together.

Got this set to read books 2 and 3 (cheaper than buying them separately) as I had already read book 1. An interesting concept and really held my attention. Like the author and look forward to more volumes.

HASH(0x92e17cb4) étoiles sur 5 Well writen but... 10 avril 2014
Par T. Overby - Publié sur Amazon.com

Books one and two, though leaving you needing a next issue, were ok, but each was short. Book three, if I had bought it I would be mad enough not to buy another book for this author, almost half of three was filler with no attachment to the plot, and boring filler at that, many many pages turned here, and of course your left waiting for a next issue. I am giving up reading any more series books, just not worth it as they all seem to think we owe them something.

HASH(0x92e17d14) étoiles sur 5 Great read. Thrilling, believeable, fast paced and fun characters. 3 janvier 2014

Great plot and characters. The technology is very realistic and the military discipline and tactics are solid. I have really enjoyed reading these. It does suffer a bit from grammatical errors that cause the reading rhythm to stumble but it's infrequent and a bit of a nit.
