Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Humanity is losing the war. The once-mighty space navies have been crippled, officers and crew have been stretched to the limit and Earth herself has come under heavy attack. The end cannot be long delayed. For Admiral Smith and the crew of HMS Ark Royal, the stakes have never been so high.

The one hope is to make contact with alien factions that might oppose the war. But, as Ark Royal sets off on a desperate diplomatic mission, it rapidly becomes clear that there are both human and alien factions that wish to fight the war to the bitter end - and that her previous missions have sown the seeds of success ... or total failure.

[Like my other self-published Kindle books, The Trafalgar Gambit is DRM-free. You may reformat it as you choose. There is a large sample of the text – and my other books – on my site: Try before you buy.]

I am loosing interest by this book. Story is following too predictable lines with similar rendition of previous books. Struggle through and I can't remember the story!

Ark Royal was a really good book and one of Christopher's best books yet.

It has it all to me. Flawed characters, a hopeless situation, the under dogs and great military action in a realistic manner. But it was really on a micro personal ship type story level.

Book 2, was a great good continuation and a worthy sequel. Did it beat book 1? Nope but it was still great read, continuing to expand the universe. Introduce the aliens as more then a mysteries enemy, as well as explore the universe and the hopeless cause that human was in.

Book 3, Trafalgar Gambit, I felt, was as good as book 2. It really expanded on the aliens as well as the human factions. It breathed depth into the the world that is Ark Royal and as such I really got to know the universe well. It also tied up alot of loose ends and expanded on the humanity and flaws of all sides on a species level and a personal level. Ending in a realistic and suitable manner for all involved.

I did feel that it could be better, and that is because I am comparing it to Ark Royal (book 1). Also felt the story was rushed (as it had alot of content to cover) and could be expanded (especially on the personal char level) and that is because the Ark Royal universe, Admiral Smith and the rest of the Ark Royal characters are/were such great characters that I wanted a greater more awesome send off.

Christopher is a really good writer that does the micro person level really well (Book 1). He also does the more larger picture type stories well too (Book 2). What he did for this book 3 was to combine and tell the micro personal level as well as the larger picture at the same time. In this aspect I feel he can do better. And when he perfects it... look out.

The Trafalgar Gambit is a good book and worthy ending for the Ark Royal saga. It could have been really great but that does not detract from all that it is. It is a showcase that Christopher is a really good author that we all should keep an eye on as when he perfects his craft, he really will be someone to look out for,

Luckily for us, the Ark Royal universe is not at the end. And I cannot wait for more books by Christopher. Keep it up Sir.

PS:Note, I give 4 stars as I feel only the SUPER OMG EPIC books should be giving the top score of 5.

Now I do know the trilogy has been extended to a nine-logy) you look it up) within the Ark Royal Universe, but I'm going to put some time between Ark Royal and the next six books. I highly recommend the first three.

That said, Chris me lad, (Forgive me for sounding like a troll.) but you have got to come up with replacement descriptions for "rolling the eyes" and "icy chills" or "cold sweat" running down there backs. First, rolling the eyes sounds like valley girls. And that was the image that came to mind. And most fighter pilots and all astronauts were body hugging underwear so moisture is absorbed and not a problem. Now Gen. Yeager might have experienced your cold sweats flying P-51's but not our trusty star fighter pilots. Ok. That's it. I'll never bring up again.

Look forward to your future books. Cheers!

I can understand being in a bad spot but this is ridiculous! Earth has almost been destroyed while the Ark Royal was out on it's last mission attacking a supposed important nexus in the aliens empire. The Ark Royal and it's fleet did a good job but almost got wiped out and had to limp home hoping not to get attacked while on the way. They didn't but they arrived back at Earth to find that the aliens had been there and nearly destroyed everything.

Now the Ark Royal is going out again. She is the only ship the Earth Defense Forces have that can survive a battle with an alien fleet. Everything else Earth has built has shown to be paper thin and gets destroyed very quickly. The Ark Royal needs to find a supposed "Peace" faction of the aliens that my desire to end this war before they are both destroyed although Earth appears to be just about done already.

So out on it's next mission they go. Unfortunately, not everyone on Earth wants peace at any price. The Russians were brutally beaten at New Russia and lost not only their colony planet but most all of their space fleet. They are so badly short in space ships that they cannot provide a Russian ship for this new fleet but will send their scientist and a diplomatic corps to assist in peace talks if they happen.

In the meantime, good old Earth scientist have devised a deadly virus that they believe can infect the aliens and quickly wipe out their entire civilization in a matter of months. That's one sure way to stop the war. But is it necessary? And we have some blackmail going on. The CAG has been compromised by video showing him and one of his subordinates enjoying each others company way, way too much. Both consenting adults know that what they have done is against military regulations and could result in their dishonorable discharges if the Admiral finds out. So, what do the blackmailers want of the CAG?

This is a great final story to the Ark Royal adventure. It is pure British with some Americans and Russians thrown in. Very exciting space action that never seems to stop. A lot of answers are given in this final story. A must read if you've finished the first two books.

In "The Trafalgar Gambit," author Christopher Nuttall continues the theme relating the exploits of now Admiral Ted Smith to the legend that is Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson, whose statue stands 170 feet high in London's Trafalgar Square. I've been a fan of Nelson since I got into maritime history as an elementary student in Port Lions, Alaska. And Smith earned his admiral rank in the second book even though I kept calling him captain. Fitzwilliam stepped up as captain and continues the job in the third novel. At the conclusion of the "The Nelson Touch," book two, the aliens assault earth while the Ark Royal is out obliterating their systems' defenses. The human invasion fleet leaves their civilian population centers alone. But the aliens aren't so nice. They deliver a brutal blow to many land masses on earth that leaves billions dead and humanity in chaos. Smith, the war hero, is needed even more. And it turns out that Prince Henry, thought lost in the second book, is alive. Henry had been masquerading as regular guy Charles Augustus so he could fly space fighters. He's a gifted pilot and does well for his side, taking out alien after alien and protecting the bomber ships as they deliver death to the alien fleets. However, the world thinks he's gone, and his lover, an assistant to Admiral Smith, is exposed. Her life will never be the same. Nuttall is quite familiar with royalty and understands growing up in the fishbowl that is the English royal family. It's unpleasant, like being a celebrity on steroids. Henry hates it. His lover learns to. But as she mourns, she's alternately judged and vilified by the press and public. The fragmented British Admiralty has few resources to offer the Ark Royal but sends the ship out yet again to try and establish contact with the aliens. In the second book, a faction has sent the humans a data packet to try and establish communication. And the Ark raiding party has captured alien prisoners. But they don't talk. The aliens think differently. Their approach to life is vastly alien. For one, they prefer an underwater environment. Prince Henry, being their prisoner, learns of their habits and some of their customs. He is captured by the "Peace Faction," one that prefers to look for another conclusion to the conflict. However, the aliens' War Faction is for all out destruction. And Kurt, the CAG, is being blackmailed because of his affair with Rose. Somehow, the mission has to succeed despite opposition by forces on both sides. And Smith must figure out a way to outsmart the odds stacked against his play. I loved this book and was bummed that it had reached a conclusion. But I see that Nuttall, who has got to be one of the most prolific writers ever, has kept the series going.

The author tried to alternate storylines here, space battles, then visions of catastrophe on Earth (done more descriptively in Red Lightning (Thunder and Lightning Series Book 2)). Oh, coincidentally, Ark Royal returns to enemy territory for peace talks.
You do hear the thoughts of the Admiral, the Captain, an Air Group Commander, or his mistress- all continuations from Book 1. They plan, train newcomers, react to the enemy with imagination. But each challenge is progressively harder. Casualties are unseen, but announced while the ship shudders under attack, or fighters shoot and blowup while dogfighting. Large parts of the book follow the adventures of a member of the Royal family, operating incognito. He forms friendships, practices in simulators and risks his life protecting Ark Royal. (Four stars)
I miss the Admiral's detailed direction of ship formations while entering hostile space or the Exec meeting with subordinates in ship spaces under repair after battles. I don't believe that England cannot call for volunteer pilots from their old Empire on Earth. And in place of concentrating on Earth's negotiators at the talks, the author offers titillating images of a Doctor studying the aliens, such as this:
' Henry blinked at her. She wore shorts and a halter top that were so tight he could see her nipples, almost as if she’d had her clothes painted on. He forced himself to look away, suddenly very aware of Janelle’s presence beside him. '
Nuttall, Christopher (2014-06-04). The Trafalgar Gambit (Ark Royal Book 3) (pp. 172-173). . Kindle Edition. (Cheesy! Minus one star.)
The strength of the book is the imaginative re-purposing of a relic from an earlier age; mounting new weapons and propulsion on an old symbol. Its' greatest weakness is placing imperfect youngsters into leadership.
