Humanity is losing the war. The once-mighty space navies have been crippled, officers and crew have been stretched to the limit and Earth herself has come under heavy attack. The end cannot be long delayed. For Admiral Smith and the crew of HMS Ark Royal, the stakes have never been so high.

The one hope is to make contact with alien factions that might oppose the war. But, as Ark Royal sets off on a desperate diplomatic mission, it rapidly becomes clear that there are both human and alien factions that wish to fight the war to the bitter end - and that her previous missions have sown the seeds of success ... or total failure.

[Like my other self-published Kindle books, The Trafalgar Gambit is DRM-free. You may reformat it as you choose. There is a large sample of the text – and my other books – on my site: Try before you buy.]

4.0 von 5 Sternen Ending of a good Trilogy 11. Juni 2014
Von Gaden - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Ark Royal was a really good book and one of Christopher's best books yet.

It has it all to me. Flawed characters, a hopeless situation, the under dogs and great military action in a realistic manner. But it was really on a micro personal ship type story level.

Book 2, was a great good continuation and a worthy sequel. Did it beat book 1? Nope but it was still great read, continuing to expand the universe. Introduce the aliens as more then a mysteries enemy, as well as explore the universe and the hopeless cause that human was in.

Book 3, Trafalgar Gambit, I felt, was as good as book 2. It really expanded on the aliens as well as the human factions. It breathed depth into the the world that is Ark Royal and as such I really got to know the universe well. It also tied up alot of loose ends and expanded on the humanity and flaws of all sides on a species level and a personal level. Ending in a realistic and suitable manner for all involved.

I did feel that it could be better, and that is because I am comparing it to Ark Royal (book 1). Also felt the story was rushed (as it had alot of content to cover) and could be expanded (especially on the personal char level) and that is because the Ark Royal universe, Admiral Smith and the rest of the Ark Royal characters are/were such great characters that I wanted a greater more awesome send off.

Christopher is a really good writer that does the micro person level really well (Book 1). He also does the more larger picture type stories well too (Book 2). What he did for this book 3 was to combine and tell the micro personal level as well as the larger picture at the same time. In this aspect I feel he can do better. And when he perfects it... look out.

The Trafalgar Gambit is a good book and worthy ending for the Ark Royal saga. It could have been really great but that does not detract from all that it is. It is a showcase that Christopher is a really good author that we all should keep an eye on as when he perfects his craft, he really will be someone to look out for,

Luckily for us, the Ark Royal universe is not at the end. And I cannot wait for more books by Christopher. Keep it up Sir.

PS:Note, I give 4 stars as I feel only the SUPER OMG EPIC books should be giving the top score of 5.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Nuttall Gets Better and Better 8. Juni 2014
Von Roger Ross - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I very much enjoyed this trilogy. Nice conclusion, loose ends tied up nicely, and there is room to move on to other things if Chris wants to explore the universe further. I very much appreciate that he kept the story to just 3 entries. Any additions would have been bloated and redundant.

I was surprised, in a good way, with the direction that he took some of the characters. They weren't supermen without flaws and that is a nice change of pace in this genre.

Chris channeled his GRRM a bit in this one. But the deaths were not wanton and moved the story forward.

This series earned The Rhino Seal of Approval.

5.0 von 5 Sternen That's a wrap! 5. Juni 2014
Von Gary F. York - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
With this book, Chris brings the, "Arc Royal," trilogy to a very satisfying conclusion. While other books may yet be set in this universe, as there is clearly more that could be written to explore the interaction between humans and the aliens, it seems unlikely that future stories will much involve the Arc Royal or its major characters.

Those who have read the first two books with pleasure will surely find, "The Trafalgar Gambit," well worth their time.

3.0 von 5 Sternen The Gambit is Respectable 12. Juni 2014
Von J. Perez - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
What I would have liked to know before I bought this book. (no spoilers)

1. What type of book is it: action, drama, etc? This book installment is an action drama, with a lesser doze of military espionage, without much mystery to it. I know, it sounds like a contradiction: espionage versus 'without mystery'. Yet, its true. The book is also a conclusion, albeit one not lacking in action.

2. What is the story about, in general? The story details the diplomatic mission of humanity to the "Fish Folk" (they have no name) as they try to mediate with its factions in the hope of preventing humanity's extinction.

3. What/Who is the target audience? I believe the target audience is a male audience.

4. Is there character development? Hmm, yes there is. I was pleasantly surprised by a change in the tenor of 2 characters. Their roles did not change significantly, though their evolution within their roles was good. A third character evolves as well, but it's a truly predictable sort of evolution that didn't quite provide as much zest as I would have enjoyed.

5. Are the characters likable? I have to say most of the characters are likable, though a little shallow. This book installment continues their story, yes, but doesn't provide morally challenging situations for most of them. That lack of depth reduced a bit of their likability because they lost a bit of their realism. The conflicting nature of humanity is better shown with the 2 characters I previously mentioned. Those two MAIN characters have such good flaws that they seem a lot more real than most, yet they are ultimately TREATED as secondary characters. You'll have to read the book to figure out which characters I mean. :)

6. Does the story keep its pacing? Yes, the story did keep its pacing. There was some intrigue, some espionage, some combat, some politics, and so forth. A little of everything. That's a great plus for the book.

7. Do you have to suspend disbelief? Understand that this is simply my personal opinion. I did have to suspend disbelief a little. The story is simply too perfectly pat. Our heroes ultimately choose ALL the correct paths. I would have enjoyed the resolution of conflict when significant characters choose questionable moral/ethical paths that deeply impacted relations between the species. Besides the evolution of those 2 characters I mentioned, I wasn't particularly surprised. Even the order of people who perished or survived had a choreographed predictability to it. I couldn't predict the exact circumstances, but I could predict, with a little too much accuracy, the general events; who would die and why. At the same time, some serious clichés are AVOIDED, though by submitting to less glaring clichés.

8. Is the book worth the asking price? It is still a very nice book installment, all things considered. $5 dollars shouldn't strain anyone's pocket.

In conclusion: This book suffers from a declining freshness to its story. It's as if all the surprises where mostly completed in the previous books. This one follows a rote path to the end. Most of the characters don't change at all from their previously written personas and are shielded from truly harsh decisions by events, military doctrine, diplomatic protocol, or the comfort of orders. Only two characters have any confrontational difficulty, though they don't particularly change from their written personas either. There is plenty of action, and other aspects to the book, that keeps the pacing flowing smoothly. It helps with those moments of predictability and disbelief. The book is still well priced. The story retains enough grit to remain an entertaining read and concludes a lot of story threads with a satisfying feel of completion. Its an above average book and a solid end to this trilogy.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Too much "wrap it up and move on", needs more work. 9. Juli 2014
Von rcran - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
A little disappointing at first but then picked up speed. The important issues were resolved but there were several that were not. Towards the end you get the feeling that he just wants to 'wrap it up'. IMHO the last quarter of the book should be re-written. But, still you will finish the story as it is the end of the series.
