Kurzbeschreibung

2067 was the year I died for the first time… It was painful. Had I known how often I’d be expected to die over the next several millennia, I might have made a stronger effort to stay dead. The year actually started off rather nice. I finished my PhD in high energy physics and was promoted to Lieutenant Commander in the United States Air Force. My first posting after the promotion was to the Lunar One Air Base where I worked with my father, Dr. Robert Kimbridge on “The Project.” “The Project” was our name for a VASIMR Ion Drive interplanetary space craft that used Thorium LFTR reactors for both shielding and power. Capable of a sustained point one G of acceleration, our prototype was expected to make the Mars run in less than a week. By the end of November the ESX Arizona was ready for her first trial runs and I was her pilot. History has an odd way of repeating itself.

Uncounted millennia ago the uncreated Creator reached forth a hand and touched a series of disparate universes. The touch set in motion ripples that created life in the Creator’s image… a life that was self-aware… a life that aspired to be more than it was… a life that sought to create in its own right. Love and fear walked hand in hand. Thus the stage was set for an epic conflict that would span the universes. These are the adventures of one brave soul and her quest to protect all life. These are the Catherine Kimbridge Chronicles.

Inception macht nichts durchschnittlich. Entweder es ist richtig stark, oder schon nahezu indiskutabel, der Mittelweg wird eigentlich nie getroffen:

Idee:
Die grundsätzliche Idee des Buches ist inspiriert. Sowohl für das einzelne Buch, als auch - besonders - für die angestoßene Serie. Der Hauptcharakter hingegen ist uninspiriert, in den letzten Jahren häufen sich die Serien mit weiblichen, mehr-als-menschlichen, nominell genialen Protagonisten einfach.

Charakterentwicklung:
Indiskutabel. Die Protagonistin wird ohne Atempause an der Story entlanggeschleift, für wirkliche Darstellung ihrer Persönlichkeit bleibt kaum Zeit. Relevante Fähigkeiten sind spontan vorhanden, ohne Rücksicht auf Plausibilität. Die eingehämmerten Romantikszenen geben den Eindruck dass die Ehefrau des Autors mit der Pistole im Anschlag ihn dazu gezwungen hat solche einzubauen. Ein geeignetes Adjektiv hierfür fehlt, weder lächerlich noch unüberzeugend sind stark genug.

Story:
Die Story ist solide und linear. Leicht verständlich und übersichtlich dargestellt, umschifft der Autor recht gekonnt gefährliche und unnötige Komplexität. Den Übergang in die Serie, am Ende des Buches, kann man kaum anders als inspiriert nennen.

Sprache:
Wortwahl und Satzbau sprechen an, das Englisch ist relativ leicht verständlich.

Präsentation:
Das Formatierungsbild ist inkonsistent und unkomfortabel, dank DRM sind persönliche Anpassungen auch nicht möglich. Rechtschreibfehler - insbesondere wenn diese in einem anderen, existierenden Wort resultieren - prägen das Bild.

Die Grundidee war ganz gut aber die Durchführung sehr chaotisch.

Im Narrativ sind extreme Sprünge. Ein Problem wird vorgestellt, alle sind ein Kapitel lang ratlos und eine Deus Ex Machina wird gefunden um das Problem in 5 Sätzen wegzuwischen. Dadurch werden die technologischen, militärischen und politischen Entwicklungen die beschrieben werden unglaubwürdig. (z.B. Die Menschheit schickt ihr erstes Interstellares Raumschiff auf den Weg und ist wenige Monate später in der Lage ganze Monde interstellar zu transportieren.)

Die Religiösen Themen im Buch waren nicht mein Geschmack. Der Hauptcharakter ist mehr oder weniger Jesus, inklusive mehrmalige Auferstehung von der Toten.

HASH(0x8e3cba50) von 5 Sternen A Little Rushed, But A Fun Read 9. September 2012
Von Steve D. Poling - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Inception, the Catherine Kimbridge Chronicles #1 by Andrew Beery is the first of a series of novels, and if the next two novels in the series contain as much big story material, it will be a marvel.

This novel is the sort of "transgressive" work you'll only find in a $0.99 Amazon book, because it does not pay the Hollywood Stupid tax. For one thing, religion users are neither villains nor irritants. The hero's side kick (at least for a little while) is a scientist and a chaplain. And he's married and not contemplating an affair with the female protagonist. What's with that? Doesn't it say, "thou shalt commit adultery," someplace? Nevertheless, there's not much Bible thumping going on and the book sails clear of sectarian shoals. There's about as much religion as you'll find in a Bollywood movie.

The hero starts the book by dying (and she dies at least twice in this novel), but she saves the life of a powerful alien in a self-sacrificial way. And this makes the alien grateful enough to spend the next 50 years rebuilding her body from scratch and recompiling all of her memories. And adding some nanotech upgrades.

Given these super-powers, the hero doesn't do a whole lot with them. And while the alien is rebuilding her body, Earth government changes so she's transferred from the US Air Force to some kinda world government space command. Sadly, I think the author has never actually served in the armed forces, but he tries to get military courtesy right (with limited success). A bit less Star Trek watching is indicated. No, a LOT less Star Trek is indicated.

The beginning of the book has some really cool REAL science kinds of gadgets and gizmos. Some of the technology described is current bleeding edge stuff I could recognize. After the aliens give humanity advanced technology, not so much. I can imagine the nanotechnology and the quantum mechanics stuff working that way, and that's probably why I liked the book so much.

Some of the time lines seemed off to me. It seemed that humanity had some incredibly short deadlines to ramp up production of whole fleets of starships. And to integrate alien technology into their weaponry. Everything works out for the most part, but it just seemed too rushed. I hope the author will learn to pace himself more in the future. Of course, someone else might gripe that it'd go too slow, so your mileage may vary.

I liked the fact that the human race was good. Maybe too good to be realistic, but the hero in the story and her branch of the military and earth government seemed to all be people of good intent pursuing a good target: the salvation of the human race. In a couple of instances, the hero's altruism and kindness results in a big win for humanity that gives them the edge they need to face the next, harder hurdle.

The scale of harder and harder tasks with bigger and bigger challenges reminded me of both the Lensmen series and also the Perry Rodan series. If you liked those space operas, you'll like this, too. All told, I'll give this novel 5 stars and I hope to see more like it.

HASH(0x8e3cbc9c) von 5 Sternen Not bad, but not good 27. Oktober 2012
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Some spoilers below!!

This book shows both promise and a lack of witing maturity. The plot it pretty linear and while the events are not too foreshadowed, the overall outcome is never in doubt. The book is of the space opera genre, so that isn't a horrible fault,l but the way that the author gets to the end isn't as believable as it shouldahve been. As another reviewer stated the speed of human technological progresswas really too great to be believable and that, coupled with far too many deus ex machina events where the main character or her alien technology artificial intelligence "save the day" really undercuts the plot and weakens the narritive significantly.

The tone of this book is similar to that of the ancient Lensman and Skylark series of E.E. "Doc" Smith. The heroine is relatively one dimensional, the end result of any action is known before it starts and there is an over-reliance on techno babble to explain everything as opposed to describing the action or characters more fully. The constant references to current day culture are distracting (an exploration ship class named "Enterprise" after a 200 year old TV program and having one of the captains of this class of ship be James Thomas Kirk? Really?) and just plain bad writing.

The events in this book should really have been fleshed out significantly more and have taken place over many more years than depicted here. A good author could have and should have had the war of an upstart young race against an ancient galactic superpower last more than 6 months and one book. It is too hurried and suffers for it. It is very difficult to suspend this much disbelief.

Others have also discussed the many, many, many punctuation and typographical errors. It truly detracts from the story. Almost every page has several errors and one is constantly coming out of the story to mentally correct those errors. The author asks for anyone who sees a problem to report them to his facebook page. Far better it would ahve been to have at least two other readers do exactly that with the manuscript prior to committing it to print/digital format.

So, in the end, it's entertaining, but not deeply. It needs a lot more work and the author really needs to have several independant people proof read anything prior to committing it to print.

HASH(0x8e3cbc60) von 5 Sternen Save your money! 26. März 2013
Von Arnold J. Barzydlo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Before writing a novel or e-book, I think an author should take an english class... and pass it. The pacing is very poor, many typo's and grammatical errors, the characters are thin, the "science" is miraculous, etc. When the author didn't know the word he was searching for, he used one that sounded like it. (Buy a dictionary.) It looks as though the author is trying to imitate Thomas DePrima's "A Galaxy Unknown" series, Or maybe the Mike Shepherds "Kris Longknife" or the "Honor Harrington" series, all of which are a much better investment of your time and money. The only reason I gave this 2 stars is because I think "hate" is a very strong word, and given time, patience, and some proofreading and discipline, this author might be able to craft a story worth reading someday. Sadly, not today. Sorry, Andrew, but your work is not ready for publication. You need to spend more time developing plot, characters, and researching how long it actually takes to develop and implement new technologies, things just don't happen overnight. Too many fantastic innovations in too short a time stretches credibility to the breaking point.

HASH(0x8e3cbf54) von 5 Sternen Great story 2. August 2012
Von MarkF - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
So, I'm definitely a fan of Beery's first book in this world. Great writing, kept the story flowing, pretty good, all round. However, one item that bugged me was the "constantine wire" instead of "concertina wire". There were a couple of other word substitutions scatter throughout the book, but that one specifically bugged me.

Aside from a need for a read-through by a proof-reader for some minor things, this book was great and I can't wait for the next one to come out.

HASH(0x8e3cbfb4) von 5 Sternen last couple of chapters invalidated the story if you ask me. 20. September 2014
Von Caleb - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I was going to give this book a three star because the pace of the book was totally off until the last couple of chapters pretty much invalidated the benevolent aliens that the main character met at the beginning of the book. this is maybe the third or fourth book that I read that the last chapter or two made me give it a one star. I dont understand why some posters have a problem with the priest in the book, do they think when man goes to space only atheist will leave earth?
