Praise

Praise for the Lightship Chronicles:

“If you liked Star Trek Into Darkness, you’ll like Dave Bara’s Impulse.” —Jack Campbell, New York Times bestselling author of the Lost Fleet series

“This guy is the next Jack Campbell; it’s that good.” —T. C. McCarthy, author of the Subterrene War series

“In Starbound, Bara manages to ramp up the depth and complexity of his world while retaining that sense of excitement, suspense, and adventure.” —Barnes & Noble Sci Fi & Fantasy Blog

“This energetic mélange of tried-and-true elements—futuristic jargon, military and romantic tactics, and multiple levels of skullduggery—easily grabs the reader’s attention; more impressive is that Bara’s story holds that attention all the way to the end.” —Publishers Weekly

“The crew themselves prove to be wonderfully diverse…. There’s always a human quirk to their dialogue that makes them feel far more alive. Impulse shows what J. J. Abrams could have done with [Star Trek] Into Darkness.” —Starburst Magazine

Impulse is an exciting space opera that fans of Star Trek will enjoy…. With plenty of suspense, drama, unique technology, and romance — this sci-fi adventure has it all. I thoroughly enjoyed this romp through deep space from relatable characters to the clever plot.” —SciFiChick

“A fun and engaging story. The protagonist comes across as relatable and believable….  Impulse is a winner for me.” —SFF World

“Totally convincing space navy—check! Perfectly realized characters complete with depth and heroism—check! Plus, a fascinating story with an Ahab of a captain determined to complete his mission, and a fledgling lieutenant who comes into his own in the midst of interstellar conflict. Oh yeah: exploding spaceships—double check!” —Tony Daniel, national bestselling author of Guardian of Night

Impulse is fun, fast, and proper science fiction, where the stakes are big and things matter because the characters matter. I enjoyed the hell out of this. Impulse should be an impulse buy.” —Simon R. Green, bestselling author of the Deathstalker series
