Book Description

This is the first book in the Hunter's Navy series.

The Galactic Empire is splintered by rebellion and is on the verge of fighting a two-front war with a rival empire. James Hunter, an eighteen year old midshipman in His Galactic Majesty's Navy begins his career under dark clouds of treason within his own family. As Hunter embarks on a mission to arrest his father, suspicions from his crew-mates and captain plague the youth. Will the baptism by fire prove his loyalty? Will he do his duty to his King or will family ties prove his undoing?

"Hunter's Navy", the story of a young midshipmen reporting to his first command in a new and interesting science fiction universe will be an enjoyable read for anyone who likes the Alexander Kent Richard Bothilo books or David Feintuch's Midshipmen's Hope books as it is yet another attempt to translate the Napoleonic era into a Science Fiction story.

The writing style is a little simplistic and heavy handed and there are some distracting formatting errors such as a lack of paragraph breaks for dialogue changes every once in a while, but despite all that the story has a good flow and the action kept me interested.

I wouldn't however recommend "Hunter's Navy" for fans of" Hard Science" Fiction as certain things, a space ship with large windows and indeed an exposed deck with glass covering it and Napoleonic era boarding actions just to name a few, will no doubt drive anyone who is really into science bonkers.

Still I hope that the author continues to refine both his writing ability and his universe because I did enjoy his overall sense of storytelling and I believe he can produce a much stronger book with a little practice.

3.0 out of 5 stars A nice short story September 1, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a nice little short story. It has all the usual scenes one would expect. It did miss one thing though, that is excitement. A little bit mystery, gruesome detailed scenes or even some different types enemies would have made this more than just a short story. Not to subvert the author, but let the imagination go!!! You are a much better than a average grammatical author and in today's world speaks volumes. Thank you...

3.0 out of 5 stars A good start June 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book and I hope that author continues to develop his style and the series. I did feel that it was a little over episodic and that it did not flow smoothly from one part to the next but I suspect that it may have had its origins in a series of short stories.

I liked the combination of Napoleonic naval warfare with space opera combat but I would have liked to have had just a little more background on the mechanics of how the combat actually, especially how the ship maintained an atmosphere to aid in suspension of disbelief.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horatio Hornblower Sci Fi without redeeming value August 4, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very fast read. Very loose construction of story line. Essentially a story of the Nelsonian navy in space with NO Sci Fi facts to be gleaned throughout. Sometimes I accept other books as YA, but this book did NOT produce any supportive story to make it work. Since the book is actually double spaced throughout, I suggest the author use that space to construct the overall universe that it is to be set it. Still, I will never really understand gun ports with retractable armor, which apparently have cannons shooting out of them in space. The quarters were a parody of a saltwater naval ship, with open decks and 'lashings' of crewmembers. What is the value? Thanks, Harry!

This is no better than the other so it will not get any more of my money. The hope is the author will develop.

I read the first episode of Hunter's Navy and enjoyed it. I would have more in depth information on the characters. I will continue with the next episode as a good read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting story. Enjoyable. February 25, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story is easy to get into but archaic terminology and weapons more commonly found on 15th century sailing ships was difficult to reconcile in a story about space battles in the distant future. That notwithstanding, a good story.
