Editorial Reviews

Review

"A complex, exciting, utterly immersive saga from cover to cover." - Midwest Book Review

"A pulp sci-fi tale reminiscent of early works by sci-fi pioneer Robert Heinlein." - San Antonio Express-News

"Star Brigade is a wild science fiction space opera...It is so rare to find classic science fiction today because it is so difficult to develop new beings, settings, and cultures. This author has done an excellent job of these." - Heartland Reviews

If you like galactic cops with awesome powers fighting against injustice then this is your kind of book! The author is very detailed oriented but the story is filled with lots of visualization (great for a reader like me who sees the words on page as a movie in my head). The book is fairly long but moves along. Get ready for amazing battles and intrigue when you buy this novel!

Format: Paperback
By the year 2403, Terra Firma or Earth, the original home planet of human beings, is gone...destroyed by the actions of a tiny terrorist cell, whose members came from an telepathic alien race, the Korvenites, but their extreme views and actions are unrepresentative of the overwhelming majority of the Korvenite species. The Korvenites were not alien to Terra Sollus, humanity's new "home" and seat of the Galactic Union of Planetary Republics, an alliance of several sentient species, including humans, but excluding the Korvenites, who have been shunted aside and their issues ignored. After the terrorist attack on Earth, all Korvenites were rounded up and shipped to "Internment Protectorates" off of Terra Sollus--for their own safety, of course--faster than you can say Japanese-American Internment Program.

To protect and defend the Galactic Union there are many resources available, but none has proven as able, courageous, well-trained, or unwavering in the performance of their duties as the Star Brigade Special Forces. Unfortunately, the Star Brigade and its specially talented and enhanced Brigadiers are under attack by enemies that transcend the stars and the boundaries of species...politicians and bureaucracies. If the Star Brigade is to survive, they will need their most able Brigadier to return to active service. Sadly, that Brigadier, a human, Habraum Nwosu, hasn't been going through the best of times, either.

Military science fiction with outstanding characters. I believe he is a Christian with a view of the future that has a strong realty in common sense. I will greatly look forward to his sequels to this story.

Format: Paperback
Star Brigade: First Renaissance is a debut novel that blends spacefaring science fiction, military action-adventure, high drama, and planetary politics into a lengthy epic. Set in the year 2403, when Earth's inhabitants have become a leading race in the Galactic Union of Planetary Republics that consists hundreds of different sentient species, Star Brigade chronicles the return of a brutal, warlike enemy. The formerly disgraced Star Brigade, led by Captain Nwosu, must overcome memory of past disaster and fight to protect all they hold dear from a ruthless and powerful legion. A complex, exciting, utterly immersive saga from cover to cover.

Great storyline that the author paints with such detail the reader cant help but become immersed in this expanded galaxy. I really enjoyed the character development and cant wait for more adventures involving the STAR Brigade. I was even saying 'for the love of Korvan' a week after I finished the book....bring on the next one!!!

Format: Kindle Edition
Star Brigade Resurgent is a re-release of an earlier novel Star Brigade First Renaissance, tweaked and polished and is ready to launch the series into a more friendly marketplace for self published and low volume releases, the reading audience as we all know is much more friendly to the independent author in any genre. As for the story itself it's pretty complex to begin with, it took me a while to put all the players and situations into their proper places and to figure out the "universe" these characters were living in. To be honest my allegiance and sympathy were swinging all over the place for the first few chapters and it wasn't until the introduction of one young person that the foundation of the story in my eyes was complete and we were ready to go. A high point of the novel was the view that when dealing with the far future the technology and abilities of both humans and a myriad of other races are going to be out of this world and here we do see extreme science fiction, no adding a few years speculated tech growth to what we have now but a total flight of the imagination combined with varied yet realistic characters.
C. C. Ekeke also wrote a central character who was broken and was keeping it together purely for the sake of his young son yet as the novel went on we see the man he was before the events in the novel and that strength, courage and integrity is the basis for the core of the Star Brigade and every member of the unit, we can cheer for them without forsaking the simple premise forgotten by the major powers in the galaxy, some things are just wrong and need to be resolved.
A solid standalone scifi military adventure with the promise of more to come, recommended.

This story is the essence of a super hero comic book brought to life in a full length novel. The characters become fully developed and personalized to a depth not possible in comic books. And, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I highly recommend the book to all science fiction fans.
