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
