Book Description

2123 was not my best year… Let me state for the record... Dying is not fun and is definitely overrated. This was the year the newly formed Galactic Coalition of Planets faced it greatest threat since the D'lralu invasion. The almost omnipotent Heshe sought to redeem themselves for past sins. The problem with this type of redemption was the price others sometimes pay for your salvation...

CKC is a pure Science Fiction series following the adventures of a future "Horatio Hornblower" style character called "Admiral 'Cat' Catherine Kimbridge" ...It's a scifi adventure series that is chock-full of real-world cutting edge science ranging from VASMR drives powered by liquid fluorine thorium reactors to entangled quantum communications. Add in a six legged cybernetic dog with a passion for chocolate and anything can happen.

Uncounted millennia ago the uncreated Creator reached forth a hand and touched a series of disparate universes. The touch set in motion ripples that created life in the Creator’s image… a life that was self-aware… a life that aspired to be more than it was… a life that sought to create in its own right. Love and fear walked hand in hand. Thus the stage was set for an epic conflict that would span the universes. These are the adventures of one brave soul and her quest to protect all life. These are the Catherine Kimbridge Chronicles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid Series Addition February 14, 2013
By Twopony
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Catherine Kimbridge Chronicles #2, Redemption is a fun read for SciFi fans. I like all the characters, especially Cat and Admiral Faragon. The acceptance and immediate trust shown by the majority of the aliens introduced in this book was somewhat unique, based on other SciFi books. It is refreshing to read how different races can meet and not start killing each other the first second. Certainly, if you are exploring space in the hope of finding Alien races, you certainly need an open mind. The Heche technology give Terrans a tremendous advantage over other species. The book does contain a lot of different plot lines concerning the different characters, however they all come together by the ending of the book. Hope the next book comes out sooner rather than later. Also, would enjoy longer length book just because I like Cat Kimbridge.

3.0 out of 5 stars I wanted to love this book, but... November 8, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I did want to love this book. I had read the first and was on the fence, then I moved onto the second.

The positive is that the book has some really clever, well-thought out concepts. It doesn't break it's own rules, and in general the books so far have been fairly entertaining. These are some almost great stories. I mean they are light. They are not going to change the world, but they certainly had some serious entertainment value in my opinion.

On the flip-side: (maybe spoilers) No one is really that good-hearted and mild-mannered. Well, I take that back. Maybe a few are. Maybe in the future everyone becomes a gospel slinging care-bear, but that don't sync with human nature as I know it. I could get behind some of the characters being so saintly, but every single one of them? Even the antagonists end up just being misunderstood good creatures. Everyone is a saint of some sort. Death is just brushed off by a mild hand touch. One character had a moral lapse for like ten minutes and felt guilty for perhaps the rest of the book. I did like that conflict was not met with lethal force with more of a defensive posture, but that wasn't even frustrating?

I could have done without the proselytizing as well. I mean, I get that the author is a priest or some-such. But in this instance I am meeting the author, not the sermon-giver. I didn't mind so much the first book because it was kind of a centered all encompassing god. Many religions can get behind that. But in the second book, we are getting very clearly Christian with bible quotes with verse and all. Now you might think I am over-reacting, and maybe I am. I couldn't help being reminded of the times I went to temple with my father and there were groups of people outside during our holy day trying to "save" us.

4.0 out of 5 stars Redemption, Catherine KimbrIdge Chronicles March 29, 2013
By tom
Format:Kindle Edition
Excellent story. Can't wait for the next one this summer. Amazon or Mr. Beery needs PREORDER site. I would preorder if it were available. It would give sense of popularity, also.
A few minor errors were found, and i would have been glad to forward them, except, again no easy way to do so.
But, did love the book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Christian Propaganda not appreciated. December 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Blatant Christian Proselytizing really isn't necessary or appreciated. Save bible verses for the bible, please - this book was much worse for that reason than the first one, steer clear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Read, the Space Opera continues June 1, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the read and laughed a lot at some of the reviews, this book has less errors by word count then the average number of errors from the Main Stream Media. This series of books (Space Opera) is the right price, many other authors have doubled and tripled the price in the middle of a series, shame, I no longer purchase the scam authors books.

4.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding book May 22, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The twists and turns keep your attention glued to the book. A ending I didn't expect, and adventure enough for all. Any comments on character development of a negative nature you can disregard. This series is up with doc Smith, and very close to RAH---Robert A Heinlein. Missed RAH only on social issues.
