Impulse The Lightship Chronicles Synopsis

A remote solar system. A fragile galactic alliance. An interstellar war is on the brink of eruption...When the Lightship Impulse is attacked without provocation, Lt. Peter Cochrane, son of the Grand Admiral, is sent to investigate. His first deep space mission, this is what Peter has spent three years in training for. But surrounded by strangers and lambasted with secret orders, is he willing to do what it takes to keep the alliance together? Even mutiny? This is book one in The Lightship Chronicles, a groundbreaking new action-adventure space opera from Dave Bara.

Impulse The Lightship Chronicles Press Reviews

'If you liked Star Trek Into Darkness, you'll like Dave Bara's IMPULSE.' -- Jack Campbell author of the New York Times bestselling Lost Fleet series


'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 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
