Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

From the author of Moon Wreck comes the first full length novel in the series. The Human Federation of Worlds thought they were alone in the galaxy. But now an alien spacecraft has appeared over one of their distant mining operations. The frightened miners immediately call for help to deal with this worrisome first contact situation. Admiral Streth is sent to implement talks with the aliens and to find out what they want. The aliens inform the admiral that they are called Hocklyns and are from a large multi-world trading federation. In truth, they come from an empire that is expanding through the galaxy and conquering world after world for slaves, and they have set their sights on the human worlds as their next conquest.

Biographie de l'auteur

I live in Clinton Oklahoma with my wife of 39 years and our cats. I attended college at SWOSU in Weatherford Oklahoma, majoring in Math with minors in Creative Writing and History. My hobbies include watching soccer, reading, camping, and of course writing. I coached youth soccer for twelve years before moving on and becoming a high school soccer coach for thirteen more. I also enjoy playing with my grandchildren. I am an avid reader and have a science fiction / fantasy collection of over two thousand paperbacks. I want future generations to know the experiance of reading a good book, as I have over the last forty years. I also have a very vivid imagination, which sometimes worries my friends. They never know what I am going to say or what I am going to do.

bonne histoire, un bon début une belle série prenante malgré quelque incohérences.
Les scènes de combat deviennent un peu longues à la fin et se ressemblent un peu trop

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Light reading with good space battles and shallow characters. 13 décembre 2016
Par Dave the Train Man - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The Slaver Wars series has a formulaic plot - the bad guy aliens (the Hocklyns) show up and blast the good guy aliens, but some escape and end up at Earth. Knowing that the bad guys will ultimately find them, the good guy aliens start "conditioning" the less technological earthlings to join forces and prepare for interstellar war. When the good guys help the earthlings to build an FTL spacecraft, it is launched to return to the former worlds of the good guy aliens - and the treachery starts - a bunch of "Adam and Eve" earthlings hijack the space ship and head for the galactic core - on the way to run into the bad old Hocklyns, where things get sticky. Ultimately, bad Hocklyns die, some good guys die, all hijackers die, and the war is on. We know a bit about a very few good guy humans, and almost nothing about the Hocklyns except that they have a slave empire, but themselves are slaves to an even more evil artificial intelligence (AI) empire, who they apparently willingly serve, existing to conquer new worlds for resources. Very good space battles. Little to no discussion of technology development or transfer. Good "throw-away" reading.

This is a great series! I cannot tell you how much I enjoy reading these books! Unlike the “Fleet Academy” which dealt with mostly younger kids getting in trouble, this book is about grown-ups or the Federation of Humans that have fled their worlds after being almost totally annilated by the AIs and their slave warriors, the Hocklyns.

I have been confused as to the order of the books in this series. I have read “Moon Wreck: Fleet Academy” which was actually book 3 in the series but reading them in the order I have done seems to make for better continuity.

In “Fleet Academy” we found out that there were other humans in our galaxy and we started working with them. But, we didn’t know how they got here or why they came to us in the first place. “Alien Contact” tells you exactly how and why we have the Federation in our solar system and thank goodness they are here.

In this book we get to know Admiral Hedon Streth in great detail. We also meet with Colonel Amanda Sheen, Admiral Streth’s second in command, and get to know her as a human but also as a fast acting warrior. After reading this book, now we know what happened to these humans and what will eventually happen to the humans of Earth if we don’t get prepared for war.

The writing is excellent, continuity is great, it has been superbly edited so it is very easy to read. You will find yourself captured by this book and will probably loose a lot of sleep once you get into it. There is a lot of fast paced action and a lot of human story lines that are nice to read about.

I can’t wait to get into the next book which I will do immediately.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An Awesome Book 23 janvier 2015
Par Catherine Mackay - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is such an exciting and enjoyable series - I loved finding out a little bit more about the Federation, their encounter and war with the Hocklyns and finally how they ended up in the Sol system. One thing I really like about Weil's writing is how he portrays the often lonely existance of the men and women who serve in the military and how much being with their families back home are to them when a bit of R&R is available. Family, friendships and relationships are central to Weil's writing - the simple pleasures of fishing, diving and family dinners - this provides a stark contrast to the brutality of war and the battles with the Hocklyns. In this book we really find out how brutal the Hocklyn's are but even they, for all their brutality, dance to the tune of their own masters who are the real power behind the Empire. Awesome book!!!!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Give me that ol' time Sci-fi 15 janvier 2016
Par Toddy - Publié sur Amazon.com

I was quite pleasantly surprised by this book. I buy very little sci-fi these days; it just isn't what it was forty years ago and my few attempts to find something "retro" have been disappointing.

I was buying an older Larry Niven book for my Kindle to take with me and re-read on a cruise and this title popped up in the "you might also like" suggestions. I bought it and ended up reading it on the cruise. Very like the sci-fi of my younger days; Heinlein, Blish, Simak, Anderson, Niven (before all the space-sex and his collaborations!).

Finished the book on the airplane back from Miami last night and am ordering the next Slaver Wars entry.

I don't read sci-fi for insights "into the heart of man" - for that there is Shakespeare, Dickens, Faulkner and scores of other "great" writers. I read sci-fi for a good yarn about exploring the galaxy.

Well done Mr. Weil.

While I have never been deeply enthralled by SciFi until recently, due to my current posting in Afghanistan I have quickly run out of books from my favorite authors such as Tom Clancy, Clive Cussler, and Lee Child. Kindle decided to recommend this book as well as the "Moon wreck" series attached to this storyline. It captures the imagination, draws the reader in, and using the correct descriptive language, you end up feeling like you are witnessing the story instead of just seeing words on a page. I cannot wait for the rest of the series, and I hope it turns into an even longer story than the author states he intends to create. From beginning to end this is one of few books I have ever had a hard time taking a break from. Don't be put off by the cheap price, it is well worth your time.

For the record, Raymond L. Well has been added to my short list of favorite authors.
