Book Description

The first book in the AMP series. In a distant galaxy, humans are on the run. For a thousand years they have fled from an enemy that is bent on their annihilation. The only real defense is their home, a great station called the Grid with a faster than light drive that is unmatched for speed. Don is a Messenger not a hero. But ordinary men sometimes have a way of rising to the occasion. War is coming and fate will place him smack in the middle. Is Man ready for the 43rd Milgari war? Don Grange doesn't think so!

5.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing, unpredictable, well-paced, well-written December 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a harsh critic of sci-fi. My reviews are often found as the most helpful critical review on a book. To give 5 stars is rare. I give this book, and the whole series, five stars.

I was reminded of the magic of Han Solo and the Millenium Falcon, but in a way that still felt original. The twists were unpredictable and entirely enjoyable. The book's pace was rampant. There is never a feeling that the author is trying to stretch his material into more books. There is absolutely no filler here, or in the future novels. Overall, read this book and the next, and follow this author, as I expect his craft to continue to improve.

The following is for the author only:

I offer these thoughts in the hopes that you consider them.

1) Consider ways to add photo imagery to your novel to help the readers conceptualize the ships, aliens, guns, and the grid. Some authors do this by including a photo-sketch of some concept at the beginning of each chapter. Others use an appendix or a galaxy chart/map to help the reader with the distances and orientation involved. Where is the Fasture Nebula in relationship to the Grid and to Orcon-3? Maps and charts help you take the step from writing novels to creating universes.

2) Speed and distance. At a speed of 365 SOL, it still takes 24 hours to go a light-year. Remember that when you are talking about how long a journey is going to take. Glaringly inaccurate calculations involving speed and distance are major detractors from a sci-fi book. Remember the genre. The people that read this genre are all proficient in the basic properties of light, heat, relativity, and energy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A New Chapter Begins July 4, 2013
By Tom G
Format:Kindle Edition
After finishing the Sodium series the author was able to find a brilliant way to clear away everything we learned about Earth and the time Humans left it yielding a clean slate for the future. Yes, the storyline continues in space but there is no Earth, no history or memories of it at all, nor of our prior heroes and their foes. This allows us as readers to follow the new story without any compulsions to align the new beginning with the past. It also frees the writer to create without any boundaries. And given that freedom another new series is born; new technology, new heroes and new villains to entertain those seeking out what could come next. The dialog is engaging and the personalities of the characters come through clearly. A very enjoyable Sci-Fi read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good sci-fi read December 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A novel of space, science and intrigue, the author writes a smooth and entertaining novel. There were a couple of grammar errors, but I'm not the grammar police nor would I be reading free books from Amazon if I were. I guarantee a good relaxing read for those brave enough to grab this book!

I passed on this series several times....and was surprised how much I enjoyed the read. The story is outside the traditional military science fiction one reads--and a little lacking in the tactics and strategy department--but it doesn't suffer as a result. There is plenty of action mixed with humor--the story flows. I give the author credit for offering the first book for free--it is a put up or shut approach--and (for me at least) it worked. I will be buying the next book in the series (and happy to do so).

More About the Author

Stephen Arseneault is a native of Central Florida where he lives with his wife and children. With several decades of experience in the fields of science and technology Stephen brings a realistic approach to the science fiction in his works. SODIUM is his first sci-fi series. AMP is the follow-on series to SODIUM.

The SODIUM series was written in first person narrative in an attempt to give the feeling of a historic account of a story as told by the main character. There is no dialogue between characters. It is not the traditional format for a science fiction novel, but it does add a unique dimension to the story, bringing the reader closer to the main character as the actions and events unfold.

The AMP series is also first person, but it follows the popular format with character dialogue.

Aside from eBooks the writings are also available in print from the author's web site Stephen enjoys reader feedback. Please send any thoughts or opinions to
