More About the Author

You can visit Vaughn at

I was born in Canada and remember as a small boy crawling in my snow-fort. I closed my eyes, and when I tried to open them, they were frozen shut. I didn't panic, but wiped away the ice crystals, unglued my eyes and kept on building my tunnel. Those were great days! I moved to Central California before seventh grade and couldn't believe I lived in a land where oranges grew on trees and you could pick grapes from the vine.

I used to wonder what I wanted to do with my life, what kind of work specifically. I was miserable not knowing and bordering on desperate. Then one day a friend gave me his typewriter. I began working on a novel. A different person told me it was much easier on a computer, so I bought one and began getting up at 4:30 A.M. each morning before work, writing for three hours. My eyes were unglued once again as the pang of misery left my gut. I knew exactly what I wanted to do: write. So now that's what I do, I write, and write, and write, and I love it.

This is the only book I've read from this author and will remain the only book I will read from him. It's not often that I'm dissatisfied after reading any piece of writing, especially sci-if, so this time I feel I really need to warn others.

The storyline was uncreative, disjointed, rather clichèd, and incomplete. I gave the book two stars, instead of one because it was just barely good enough for me not to throw in the towel. Barely.

Where should I start? How about the poor and sophomoric writing, to mirror another reviewer. It's rare I notice poor writing. This piece though can't be ignored. It's truly distracting. The analogies are forced and don't make sense. There are various times when wording choices are sloppy and confusing. As a reader I did not feel carried through the plot, but rather force fed underdeveloped ideas.

Then the characters. Maybe these characters were better developed in previous books? I hope so because with the development in this book, or lack thereof, I felt the characters were flat and rather one dimensional. I was left with many unanswered questions about who each character was and why various details were included or left out.

The plot was generally an interesting premise but the details and execution were poorly implemented leaving an unfulfilling and empty feeling after finishing the book. At one point they're on one space ship, then the whole book shifts gears to this space station with some fluffy tribal flavor that's all of a sudden tossed in. The whole story had poor transitions which lacked cosistency and fluidity. With better planning (foreshadowing, common themes, etc.) the whole story arc could have been much more interesting.

Finally, what's the deal with the abrupt ending!?

Vaughn Heppner seems to be able to just crank out books and I rarely am able to find fault with his work. Case in point Alien Honor. The story here picks up after his five books of the Doom Star series. Cryus is a low level telepath living in the lowest levels of Milan. Cities in the future go miles into the ground and only the privileged get to get outside. Earth and the Sol system are searching for telepaths and Jasper happens to be a telepath who can find other telepaths. (think Professor X from the X-Men). The Sol system is overcrowded and there is a ship going out to explore another solar system. The ships are powered by telepaths which allow the ship to jump faster than light speed. Obviously, there are aliens, trouble and more trouble. The kind that only a guy like Cyrus can fix.

If you haven't read the previous books, it doesn't hurt you too badly but a new reader won't know some of the finer details. I just happened to enjoy those finer details however. This book is just the beginning of a series however. The book stands on its own but it really remains to be seen where the rest of the series is going. Overall, the pacing of the book was good and I didn't find my interest wavering. I'm curious to see what happens next.

Although the e-book was great entertainment up to the point where it stopped, I felt like I was left hanging with missing chapters. The book should never have been written w/o at least having a followup book that connected the two characters Klane (the seeker) and Cyrus. It was as if the author decided to quit right in the middle of writing his book. What a disappointment. I paid for half a book!

When I first got Alien Honor by Vaughn Heppner, I was sort of expecting another novel in the vein of Orson Scott Card's Ender novels, and while this one does contain some elements that are similar in tone, I am happy to say that this is a brilliant story that is perfectly capable of standing on its own two feet. The tale of Cyrus and the other "Specials", each with his or her own tele-ability who can rip holes in space and bring their ship closer to its intended destination, is one that had me on the edge of my seat the entire time, and while I was kind of disappointed that the ending left me hanging, I'm definitely awaiting the next book in this series.

"Alien Honor (A Fenris Novel)" by Vaughn Heppner was an okay read for me. I think this is a book for someone who has read other books by Heppner and are familiar with characters and situations from them. Some of the story I could really get into but other parts just didn't grab me all that much. But, I stuck with it to find out how it ends except there is no ending! You have to be committed to this author and ready to buy the next book.

I think this is a great read for those who are regular readers of Heppner's books. Not a very good stand alone or introduction to Heppner for those who aren't familiar with his other books. For me it was an okay read but would have liked some sort of finish to the book.

Fans of Heppner's good solid work will find more of the same, which is fine, set in the Doom Star universe for those familiar with that. The plot is straightforward and gritty in his usual style, with the main character a tough kid from the gutter serving with the Space Marines and sent away to a faraway "new Earth" planet. The first part of the book takes place aboard the ship, and revolves around the things that go wrong there, which I found a bit slow, but entertaining enough. The book really takes off in the second part, when the ship arrives in the alien system, to find things much different from what everyone expects - including the reader. The second part of the book totally blew me away and was lots and lots of fun in the classic pulp mold - multiple menacing alien races, crazy technology, and the plot suddenly speeds up a lot and rushes to the end. So, if I was to make a recommendation, I'd say, view the first part as a setup to the second part, and I hope Heppner keeps on writing like the second book rather than the first.
