9780091956417: Impulse: The Lightship Chronicles (Lightship Chronicles 1)

After a bloody civil war across the galaxy, fighting against the Corporate Empire of Man, the colony of Quantar has re-connected with the Historians of Old Earth, a techno-monastic order with unimaginably superior knowledge, together building a new fledgling coalition and with it the Unified Space Navy. Lieutenant Peter Cochrane of the Quantar Royal Navy, son of the Grand Admiral himself, is set to begin his posting aboard the Lightship HMS Starbound when disaster strikes. His brother, Derrick, and the entire Quantar contingent of the HMS Impulse have been killed in action when their shuttle was destroyed. Politics demands the remaining son of the Admiral must complete the mission, and so the newly minted Lt. Commander Peter Cochrane must pick up where his brother left off, and do what is necessary to uncover the truth behind the attack and avenge his brother's death while protecting the coalition.

Product Description:

A remote solar system

A fragile galactic alliance

An interstellar war is on the brink of eruption...

When the Lightship Impulse is attacked without provocation, Lt. Peter Cochrane, son of the Grand Admiral, is sent to investigate.

His first deep space mission, this is what Peter has spent three years in training for. But surrounded by strangers and lambasted with secret orders, is he willing to do what it takes to keep the alliance together? Even mutiny?

Book one in The Lightship Chronicles, a groundbreaking new action-adventure space opera from Dave Bara

Review:

"If you liked Star Trek Into Darkness, you’ll like Dave Bara’s IMPULSE." (Jack Campbell author of the New York Times bestselling Lost Fleet series)

"Totally convincing space navy . . . check! Perfectly realized characters complete with depth and heroism . . . check! Plus a fascinating story with an Ahab of a captain determined to complete his mission, and a fledgling lieutenant who comes into his own in the midst of interstellar conflict. Oh yeah: exploding spaceships . . . double check!" (Tony Daniel bestselling author of Guardian of Night)

"IMPULSE is fun, fast, and proper science fiction. Where the stakes are big, and things matter because the characters matter. I enjoyed the hell out of this. Impulse should be an impulse buy." (Simon R. Green bestselling author of the Deathstalker series)

"This first in the series promises some epic dust-ups" (John Wyatt The Sun)

"Impulse shows what J. J. Abrams could have done with Into Darkness if he was less obsessed with flashy effects and more interested in substantial storytelling" (Starburst)
