Description du produit

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Ark Royal – the Royal Navy’s outdated space carrier – has won a smashing victory against the enigmatic aliens, capturing one of their starships and returning to Earth.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

Continuing story with new characters, interesting story line follows probably how humans will enter space, divided. Again the repetition is a bit annoying on historical points of why we are here. give it a read

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Some potential - a review for the entire series 5 août 2014
Par Logan Greenlee - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
These books as a whole are entertaining to read. Christopher clearly has a creative mind but the writing across the entire series needs some work.

The biggest issues I had with the entire series:

Repetition: In an effort to provide filler material certain subjects are rehashed time and time again. Typically it is "background" material. For example, the dispositions of pilots. "Pilots are prima donnas because they could die at any moment". This particular item is written in one way or another at least 6 times. A similar type of descriptive information about Sin City was restated again and again. Ark Royal was characterized again and again and again. It really is to the point of annoyance and happens throughout all three books of the series.

Lack of innovation: One of my greatest appreciations of sci-fi is that it can be used to really explore new concepts and ideas. These ideas do not have to be technological, they can also be societal. The entire series lacked creativity in this regard. I am not even sure the tram line concept is based on anything in particular. There was a description of "real space" drives that allow the ship to stop and speed up quickly but then much discussion about classical physics and "ballistic trajectories". It was only until late in the series was there a real discussion about the delays associated with space communications. Nano bots were thrown around as well but only for particular applications.

Lack of description: Instead of re-hashing the same descriptive blocks I would have like to have seen a better description of what the ships looked like - especially ark royal. I had little sense of scale during battles or recon activities.

Lack of depth: Over three books it could be possible to have a wider set of characters and perspectives. For example, the cyborgs who were placed on New Russia, what happened to them? That thread was never followed up. Other parts of humanity and their reaction to the events could have been a part.

Sex: I really did not like the use of sex throughout the series. There are other series where I found it to be acceptable but I did not feel that it added anything substantial and was a bit "trashy".

I felt the conclusion to book III was not very well done and that is was a "cheap" ending.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Mr Nuttall has the 'touch' on this sequel 24 mars 2014
Par Gregg Miller - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
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.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointing 17 août 2014
Par Olli Männistö - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
1st part was hardly a masterpiece no matter what all the five star reviews would suggest. But at least it was entertaining enough galactica fanfic-esque military scifi romp. Second part has a couple of problems. First of all about half of the book is dedicated to human interest stuff. Nuttall is hardly creating interesting characters here with half of the narrative smelling strongly of self-biographical divorce fallout. We also have a few rather jarring bouts of lieutnants pert boobs being manhandled.. Neither part really adds anything to the narrative and could have been edited out without missing much.

Actual pew pew part is where the meat of the book is. Unfortunately here the narrative breaks down badly at times. In short, the books estabilish certain premises such as modern carriers are awfully vulnerable and the bad aliens figured out they should use active sensors to largely negate mass drivers as viable weapons.

So far so good with 1st encounter not going that great for the humans despite superior numbers. However, the second and third encounters are against much superior alien foe with good guys suffering a proverbical stubbed toe. Excuse me for being a spoilsport but I'd expect a bit of internal integrity for the suspension of disbelief here. Bad aliens are also apparently completely ignorant of the concept of mines and/or they're unable to pick them up the same way they detect rocks thrown in their way.

I think I'm skipping the 3rd part based on this one. I've enjoyed Synchronicity war much more. It creates from same basic premise something that feels much more believable and actually gives sense of navy-ish operational protocols in effect. Fleet actions are much more plausible with superior numbers carrying the day with the crucial part being getting more green dots in the right place at the right time than the red dots. All in all it feels a little like Tom Clancy lite in sci-fi setting.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very Exciting Space Warfare with (Unnecessary) Added Drama 24 octobre 2014
Par Guardsix - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The Ark Royal is the only human starship that the alien enemy can't seem to destroy. And it is powerful enough to take on many alien carriers on it's own as proven by it's previous combat record. Now the Admiralty wants to send the Ark Royal and a coalition task force fleet to strike deep inside enemy territory. This seems to be a suicide mission since all the other foreign carriers in the fleet will be modern and apparently paper thin on armor. But, it's felt that humanity must strike at an important alien nexus to show the aliens that it would be better to talk than fight. So far, the aliens haven't attempted to communicate with the humans in any manner.

As if the space warfare wasn't enough of a story, we also have the inside drama of the potential heir to the British thrown disguised as a star fighter pilot. He wants to "prove" himself so he's changed his appearance and name. No one knows who he is except the Admiral, Capt Fitzwilliams, his XO and the CAG. All of them have been given explicit orders to make sure the Prince stays safe. This part of the story would only happen on a British ship and seems really unnecessary to the story.

The main story line is really good and I'm really happy that the next book is already out. Keep reading these books. They are great science fiction.
