Captain DuCreux of the space warship 'Detroit' comes across a huge object. He finds it is an alien spaceship, sends a boarding party only to awaken the dormant life on board... a cautious friendship ensue. However old enemies are hunting this alien ship... and our story unfolds.
Some thoughts on "Alien Civil War'...
1.) I'd read some other reviews of this work that noted the number of spelling errors, etc. Maybe some of these problems were addressed and corrected with the latest re-edit, because I did not notice many.
2.) I checked the product page on amazon.com and it's listed as Sci-Fi adventure. This then was either a serious attempt to write the tale of a prolonged space encounter with an alien species OR it was a tongue in cheek, space opera spoof or parody. If the former, then it contains some of the worst writing I've ever come across... if the latter, then it still contains some awful writing BUT it may have achieved its goal, because the story, told in the manner that it was, could not have been really taken seriously.
3.a) we have super computer Hal (sound kind of familiar?), the A.I. of the space fleet's flagship, who, on several occasions, tends to laugh 'evilly'.
3.b) nearly every sentient thing, be they people, aliens or computers tend to speak with 'graveled' voices. ('graveled', or a derivative, appeared 38 times... verified by the Kindle search function). Very noticeable.

Please Amazon, if you're going to allow people to self publish, then please at least set some standards for writers to follow and adhere to before they do it. If this book had been for hard copy publication, it would never have been printed - I consider this a rough draft at best. Please Mr Hiatt, don't give up your writing, but please raise your standards before you publish another book.

Pretty good space opera. Not world class. Transitions between viewpoint characters were abrupt and confused. Characters were difficult to distinguish at times. Read morePublished on November 17, 2013 by David Lamp
