Tad Thatcher is adrift. After an unexpected loss to the pirates of the Degenerate Empire, it was just another humiliating moment to add to the most embarrassing moment in his life. Veronica Rose, Major Avery and their crew had sacrificed their lives to save the crew of the New Jersey. But with her last transmission, that Thatcher unwittingly kept on ship wide comm, she professed her love for him. Thatcher was spirling out of control, but his crew wasn't having any of it. They reminded him that to survive he needed to get his head back in the game. Spacers: Empire Space is a turning point for Thatcher. Will he be able to get back his confidence for his sake and for his crew? Bartlett doesn't disappoint; he continues on with this book to keep the reader on the edge of their seats, waiting for more. Well done, Bartlett!
Cut off from your home galaxy. Suffered a major defeat due to treachery. Fleeing a hostel force that greatly outnumbers yours while trying to keep those you’re responsible for alive. What could possibly go wrong? Scott keeps the action and suspense ratcheted up a notch in this military type thriller.
Captain Tad Thatcher finds himself the crew of the New Jersey and the remaining Frontier fleet in the Lacuna Region after escaping a brutal defeat in the Nankeen system. Not only is the fleet in tatters, but the head of Frontier Security, Veronica Rose, is dead and Thatcher is truly alone.
As Thatcher no longer has the support of Rose, he alone must resolve the problems from the defeat as well as escaping the remaining Pirate fleet which was responsible for the Nankeen defeat. Along the way, Thatcher makes new friends, rescues old friends and engages with old enemies.
Empir Space is an excellent continuation of the Spacers series.
As I’ve noted in reviews of previous books in this series, I’m a big fan of Scott Bartlett, and this series especially. So when I got Empire Space, I stopped the book I was reading to read this one.
This is the first book in this series that when I started reading, I was having some trouble keeping engaged in the book. It started slow, slower than Scott’s books normally start. But I kept reading, and sure enough I finally got sucked in, and I couldn’t put the book down. I guess it was background building, and had to be done. And as I ended it, just like each book in the series before it, I already want the next book, even though it’s not out yet. Come on Scott, I need the next book.
So if you start reading this book and think it’s going slow like I did, keep going. You’ll be glad you did.
The treachery of Moll left Thatcher helpless and reeling before the pirate forces. The sacrifice of Veronica Rose left Thatcher an automaton for grief. And the Frontier for all practical purposes a shambles. But underestimating the genius of Thatcher is a major mistake. Also the regard he is being held in in by some very unexpected sources. Spacers: Empire Space demonstrates once again the axiom that a battle lost does not mean the war is lost as well.. The mounting suspense and the actions by a resourceful Frontier fleet remnant is pulse pounding stuff which I thoroughly enjoyed. And a couple of surprises as if from the left field simply compounds the sheer pleasure this installment in the Spacers series provide. Enjoy.
This is book 5 of the Spacers series. The author continues to give us phenomenal writing in this military sci-fi series. The characters continue to develop and grow naturally as the series progresses. The world building stretches the canvas on which the space battles and the corporate intrigue evolve. Scott Bartlett is a fabulous writer that continues to produce stories that thrill and evoke the readers imagination. I recommend this book with no reservations and am also excited to read the next installment in the series.
I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.
This is the fifth installment of the Spacers series and I'm just enjoying the saga more and more with each new book. The characters are believable, are flawed and the good guys don't always win and, certainly, take their lumps along the way. The tactics are logical and believable without the "technology saves all" magic that some authors continuously turn to when they've written themselves into a corner. What's most fun is that each book leaves the reader satisfied, but still wishing for more! Bring on book 6!!
An amazing continuation of the story about a group of humans trapped in a space far from Earth. The wormhole connecting the two areas has collapsed and no one knows if Earth still exists, or if they are the only humans left in the universe. While infighting amongst the different factions continues, we wonder what the aliens are up to. Can't wait for more! Great read! I received an advanced reader copy free and have voluntarily chosen to leave an honest review.
this has been one of my favorite miltary Sci-Fi series to date. Much respect to the author he has a way of drawing you into his books, you feel as part of the crew and care about the others in the book. I usually don't get into the long series. 3 or 4 books are good but Scott writes in a way that keeps you wanting more and not wanting it to end. I plan to read anything I can get ahold of of his. ONE HELL OF A GOOD WRITER......
