Publisher's Summary

Lieutenant Peter Cochrane of the Quantar Royal Navy believes he has his future clearly mapped out. It begins with his new assignment as an officer on Her Majesty's Spaceship Starbound, a lightship bound for deep-space voyages of exploration. But everything changes when Peter is summoned to the office of his father, Grand Admiral Nathan Cochrane, and given devastating news: the death of a loved one.

In a distant solar system, a mysterious and unprovoked attack upon lightship Impulse resulted in the deaths of Peter's former girlfriend and many of her shipmates.

    "Meh."

    This book was a chore to get through. It was only 9 hours long but it felt like an eternity. The sci fi tech was too hokey and things were over explained in parts and not explained at all in others. There were too many "just in time" reveals that something had a previously unknown capability so it now does what they need at just that moment. The world building was shoddy. They favor republics but they have a Royal Navy? Also, author doesn't seem to have any technical knowledge. The movement and combat in space was too unrealistic and frankly too boring. Took way too long for something to actually happen and when it did, meh.

    Also, a marine colonel outranks a lt commander in any service. Do a little research at least.

    The reader was excellent, though. I probably would've quit this book if not for his performance.

    Doubt I'll get the second book. Maybe if I can't find anything else interesting and I have a spare credit. Otherwise, pass on this.
