Summary Impulse Author Dave Bara Impulse Author Dave Bara Review Ô PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Lieutenant Peter Cochrane of the uantar 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 I. I picked up Impulse because I have a weakness for space opera probably because I was raised on a steady diet of Star Trek and Star Wars Blake s 7 and Babylon 5 Impulse is fun enough with chases and traitors and first contact with sort of aliens and dealing with romance on board ship and conflicts between differing kinds of ordersIt s fun but kind of bland others have done it better and there wasn t much contact with aliens Both romances were straight out of Kirk s playbook really and the main character is a mixture of mature and immature inexperienced and cocksure getting rank through privilege but also coincidentally being good enough for it somehow His fuck ups don t have major conseuences for him only for other people and generally life goes along pretty easily for him other people get hurt and die but he makes it through and will be fineI found the ending extremely annoying the nominal goal of the book isn t reached and it s just very unsatisfying There s in the background that interested me that wasn t brought outStill fun enough to occupy a train journey Not sure if I ll read the rest of the series though I think the second book is now outOriginally posted here

overwhelming responsibility for Peter and one false step could plunge humanity into an apocalyptic interstellar w. originally posted at came as a total suprise to me I hadn t heard of Dave Bara before and his writing and didn t saw any annoncements of this book whatsoever When Del Rey asked me if I would like to review this book I counldn t say no I am a big fan of space opera science fiction and from the blurb I could make out that it would be choke full of action and spaceships What can you wish for Well this is far from everything that you get in Impulse as Dave Bara does not only make the book drive on action there is a very nice undercurrent of something big that is about to happen And only one man can save it The story of Impulse focuses on the main protagonist young Lieutenant Peter Cochrane In his military career he was groomed with one goal in mind serving on the Lightship the HMS Starbound One day he is called into his father office Peter s father is a general in the uantar Navy his father mentions that one of their Lightships the HMS Impulse has been attacked and has to be retrieved however there is worse new as Peter s girlfriend was on board HMS Impulse and is presumed dead The uantar Navy cannot loose the HMS Impulse and therefore assemble a rescue mission to retrieve the ship now Peter s original plans of serving on HMS Starbound are thrown around as he is part of the lead to retrieve HMS Impulse But as you might imagine this rescue mission will be far from straightforward Something is going on board of the HMS Impulse that is hard to put a finger on Luckily Peter isn t alone in this mission On a night drinking he already get acuainted with a female officer one that he hadn t thought to see that soon after Commander Dobrina Kierkopf and Peter s first introduction is uite an eventful one as after a few drinks they decide to has a fencing sparring match After this everything mostly take place in outer space and where some might think that it is only empty space well also here Dave Bara has some nice surprises for you All this combined makes the story of Impulse very cool to read as I already mentioned there are a lot of cool things happening but they all follow up on each other so explaining would only spoil many surprises What leaped out of the book was the way that the narration of the story was done The narration is told from the first person perspective of Peter In many ways this narration really worked to show the inner thoughts of Peter how he reacted and perceived the different elements of the world Such a first person narration always help to bring a much stronger conviction of the protagonist to the front However I do have a small remark concerning this and perhaps it is due to being a first book in the series and that Dave Bara wants show a lot and I do welcome this enthusiasm but it felt in some cases that the narration faltered and felt of less forced this could also be due to the Peter himself being torn in so many different ways This is just a small remark as when the action takes in Impulse this first person narration offers a front row seat As I already said Peter is the main protagonist of Impulse In building his character Dave Bara doesn t give him an easy role Peter is a descendant from a noble line and has to live up to this role you can feel that he has a lot of pressure on his shoulders due to this This also becomes notable later on in the story when he acts as a emissarydelegation to construct an alliance He is also haunted by the loss of his girlfriend on HMS Impulse and his obligation to help and save as many people as he can This makes him a complex character but enjoyable to read but as I said with he narration sometimes there is a conflict of interests Next to Peter there are numerous secondary characters that you meet during the story but on stood out for me Commander Dobrina Kierkopf she is a smart you women somewhat German descent She knows what she wants and doesn t like to say no one trait that if Peter hadn t intervened might have given disastrous results What I said with she knows what she wants comes to show in the end of the book There is an interesting twist in the end that I found written very well and you could clearly see the emotion being Dobrina s actions I am convinced that she wants from Peter Eager to see how this will be followed up What I like to see in space opera is technology I read a few of these same genre books and they brought forth very cool technology ideas And this is precisely what you get in Impulse Just to name a few you have Hoagland Field Gate travel displacement waves lightspeed ofcourse EVA suits spaceship fights and much much In setting up the world and what makes it tick Dave Bara has hit all the right snares with showing just the right amount of accessories to build it not going over the top with it but keeping a very serious tone showing that even with a lot of technology you can still be beaten Because if you think you are good keep in mind that there might always be someone better than you Because I didn t mention the Founders and a mythical race known as the Sri And I also didn t mention nanotechnology Ok now I do have to stop but just this premise alone is worked out very well The same count for the core world building the idea behind Dave Bara s interstellar world is promising A war was won or solved with an alliance and now a group of Historians from Earth are in search for answers of the First Empire I haven t really spotted the typical alien like horrific creatures but there are than just humans present It feels to me thatwe have just seen the tip of the iceberg or should I say one uarter of a moon of the world that Dave Bara wants to show the history of the Founders and the other players of this universe must be much intricate than shown so far I really like this idea of a high entity taking charge this will leave for a action packed seuel without a doubt With Impulse Dave Bara is of to a good start with The Lightship Chronicles He has build a very cool universe that is readily available for further exploration Further the story is far from a straightforward kind of one as might be implied by the synopsis Dave Bara creates uite the intricate story combining engaging surroundings and likable and human characters As I have already said the whole promise with higher and better entities always inspires something grande I can already see it happening for Starbound
