One thought on “The Oncoming Storm

  1. Lexxi Kitty

    Solid science fiction military fiction space opera about a young officer who unexpectedly finds themselves as the captain of a space ship unexpectedly as in, she hasn t been captain before, and the level of spaceship is several levels higher than her first command should be.I acknowledge noticing certain issues similar between this first book in a series and the first book in the Honorverse series and note that there are also major differences.

  2. Per Gunnar

    I have to say that I am quite amazed at the productivity of Christopher Nuttall With The Oncoming Storm he has managed to start yet another great book series I am actually quite concerned that he is going to overstretch himself sooner or later So far however, he has managed to keep up both his frantic writing pace and the quality of his books.The story of this book definitely falls into the my cup of tea category for me It is a true space opera with two so far space empires going head to head It [...]

  3. Liviu

    fast, entertaining and what one expects given the blurb and the author while most of his books have been independently published, this one is released under the 47 North imprint sff and even a cursory comparison with the original version available free on the author s homepage under the same title see link below shows a book that is much tighter, better paced and with powerful scenes space opera with villainous villains, heroic heroes and a few in between characters, page turner not to be put d [...]

  4. Cathy (cathepsut)

    Formulaic space opera Likeable, but bland characters Sometimes repetitive, with certain points getting repeated over and over again Very stereotypical gender roles Uninspired world building.I like Kat and William, but emotionally they are flat I did not connect with them and any other characters are one dimensional and undistinguishable The roster of characters feels as if the author took the crew of the Enterprise and gave them new names.33% into the story nothing much has happened but setting [...]

  5. C.T. Phipps

    THE ONCOMING STORM is the first book of the ANGEL IN THE WHIRLWIND series, which I admit seems to be a little wordy for a series title Especially since there s nothing wrong with calling the series the KAT FALCONE series or even C.S.S LIghtning series It s a space opera series with obvious roots in the HONOR HARRINGTON series by David Weber but I don t think that s a bad thing as I cut my teeth on those books I ve also felt that series has gotten away from its central concept of a kickass female [...]

    a new space opera Ok, I really enjoyed the beginnings of this space opera A tad midshipman Honor Harrington meets a young Herris Serrano.I know the plot is somewhat familiar but that didn t lessen my enjoyment one iota.It s 2040 and war is on the horizon for those with eyes too see between two empires, the protectionist Commonwealth, a loosely democratic empire espousing free trade, and the Theocracy governed by religious fanatics whose main object is to convert the masses to their religious bel [...]

  7. Online Eccentric Librarian

    More reviews and no fluff on the blog surrealtalvi.wordpress My enjoyment of The Oncoming Storm was hampered by two issues an incredibly miscast Audio book narrator and a plot that somehow managed to not bring anything new to the genre of military sci fi As such, the story is serviceable and packs enough adventure to keep readers listeners invested But at the same time, this is a somewhat unsatisfying snack, leaving one hungry for substantial fare at the end.Story Cat Falcone enlists in the mil [...]

    The galaxy s two greatest empires, the Commonwealth and the Theocracy, are headed for war, and the Cadiz system, right at the border and recently forcefully annexed by the Commonwealth, is likely to become a focal point and that s exactly where newly minted Captain Kat Falcone, whose influential father s meddling got her put in command of the Commonwealth s newest warship despite the fact that she knows she s not ready for such a post, is headed But turning down the promotion isn t an option, an [...]

  10. Clare O'Beara

    This is a lively space warfare tale, pitting the Commonwealth against the Theocracy and showing us many individuals including some who are not strictly on either side There are echoes of classics such as Star Trek The Next Generation in the ranks, ship setup and other features, but we meet a newly appointed female captain from a wealthy family who thinks this is a better option than being a socialite She s still obliged to attend balls and be diplomatic, even as war looms Refugees are fleeing th [...]

    Great new military sf series with a strong female protagonist by one of my favorite authors I can t wait on the next installment.

  12. Miss OP

    love this series I enjoy kat although i do want from her one of the big problems with this series is the author REALLY wants to write william when it s supposed to be of kats book which causes issues later on in the series it gets to a point where you re like i kinda dont care about William just saying nice EXO wonder character but rather annoying stiff boring old dude and i kinda want to see of kat since she s on the cover and the other reason i read this book chick on cover sci fi this kind [...]

    De la SF militaire de s rie B ce n est pas p joratif qui se laisse lire sans prise de t te avec quelques batailles spatiales entre les forces du Mal extr misme religieux co notation islamique et un commonwealth aristocratique Le plus gros reproche que je pourrais faire est que tout est fond sur l action avec peu de profondeurs dans les r flexions ou trop peu de d tails pour rendre consistants les diff rents personnages qui gravitent autour de notre h ro ne Kat Falcone

  14. Laz the Sailor

    This was a solid story, but for me it was too derivative when compared to some of my favorites.I had no problem with the Theocracy as the bad guys classic over the top fascists.There was one scifi tech thing that drive me crazy view spoiler the ability to change course and move between ships while in hyperspace hide spoiler.I probably won t read the next books, unless someone tells me that they are much better than this one.

  15. Alice

    Kat is a good protagonist, and I like her She s the only female character who gets any depth, but she does kick a lot of butt Even if Nuttall makes her long blonde hair she refuses to cut a big part of her identity, along with her teenage appearance sigh Seriously though, I enjoyed the first book and will be reading the second Flaws aside, the story was fast moving and captured my interest right away I have high hopes for the next one 3

  16. Faith

    I requested this book on Netgalley because I thought it was going to be a fun romp something to relax with after a day working in the library Military SF with a female lead is basically a recipe for my perfect popcorn book.Unfortunately, The Oncoming Storm didn t live up to even those rather low expectations I wasn t looking for brilliance, but I was at least looking for originality The Oncoming Storm cribs its entire setup from other books in the genre Kat Falcone is a newly promoted Captain, p [...]

  17. Nick Jones

    The FTC wants you to know that I received a copy of this book for free by way of Giveaways So apparently this is space opera Unlike what appears to be the entire population of the review section, my experience with the subgenre is essentially limited to the original Star Wars films I have to say that if this is a typical example I m not terribly enthusiastic, as while the book does take place in space it isn t notably operatic.The Oncoming Storm reminds me of something Star Wars, sure, but so St [...]

  18. Jean Poulos

    This is a new series from Nuttall Our protagonist is Captain Katherine Kat Falcone She is similar to other space opera heroines such as David Weber s Honor Harrington and Mike Shepherd s Kris Longknife I enjoy this type of Sci Fi so another heroine series is great for me.Kat has been assigned the command of the Commonwealth s brand new warship HMS Lightning and sent to the frontier outpost of Cadiz A war is pending between the Commonwealth and the Theocracy Empire of religious fanatics that had [...]

  19. Sam

    The Oncoming Storm for me, was a fairly interesting Sci fi It is fairly well paced and had enough going on to hold my attention and keep me flipping to the next page.That being said, I was somewhat disappointed with this book as it is plain average in many respects The main problems that the protagonist must overcome are discovered within the first few chapters Inept Corrupt Admiral in charge of the system closest to a likely warfront and dealing with the anticipated attack from said front The s [...]

  20. G33z3r

    A serviceable military sci fi featuring battles between fleets of starships.The universe is fairly familiar, humans spread across the stars, hyperspace transit, and FTL communications systems not called ansibles The Commonwealth as a constitutional monarchy, with hereditary aristocracy A few farsighted starship captains, including Our Hero, Kat, try gamely to prepare themselves for a seemingly inevitable war with the Theocracy, a fanatical cult of zealots bent on forcibly converting the rest of [...]

  21. Jo(Mixed Book Bag)

    The Oncoming Storm is Military Science Fiction with a lot of familiar elements In The Oncoming Storm they come together in a great story The first scene with Kat Falcone shows her confronting her Father for pulling strings to get her the command of a warship going to Cadiz That sets the scene for the rest of the story Kat and the Commonwealth are the good guys The Theocracy is the enemy and war is coming.The story caught me from the first paragraph The characters were very well developed, the pl [...]

  22. Jon Abbott

    Nuttall returns to creative plotting and character development after his other space opera series were waning This is book one of a series If you were to compare it to David Weber s first Honor Harrington book , there isn t as much of a full tale in The Oncoming Storm Nevertheless, much better than average space opera.

  23. Andrew

    A well written book that combines so many elements into a fast paced space opera that is hard to put down Influenced by current events, combined with historical trends during colonization and predictions of possible future technologies and governments, as well as the always present human element, this is the start of another interesting series by an already proven author.

  24. Jed Moulton

    Very kris longknife not quite the same but same general principal Young aristocrat that wants to prove she is worth than her name is used in political machinations An admiral that is interested in social climbing than actually performing his duties and a multistar nation of fanatics that believe their way is the only way and will kill everyone who disagrees enjoyed reading it.

  25. Ness

    The plot was mediocre The male characters were at least somewhat realistic, but the female characters are wholly unbelievable It pulled me out of the story constantly.

  26. Ove

    Great new military sf series with a strong female protagonist by one of my favorite authors I can t wait on the next installment.

    Een aanbieding voor 1,45 Maar wel deel 1 van een serie, de rest zal dus minder goedkoop zijn.Het universum ziet er als volgt uit De Aarde bestaat niet meer als bewoonde planeet Ooit had de UN daar de macht Er werden planeten ontdekt en gekoloniseerd Bevolkingsgroepen en of religies die niet welkom waren op Aarde werden gedwongen afgevoerd vrijwillig mocht ook naar deze of gene planeet Aarde bleef de baas over de kolonies Totdat diverse planeten zich wilden losmaken, de zg Afscheidingsoorlog bego [...]

  28. Niall Teasdale

    The set up on this is so much like On Basilisk Station, the first Honor Harrington Book, that it s a little painful Unfortunately, Nuttall is no Weber The writing can be a bit stodgy in places, and the plot is pretty standard It does diverge from the Harrington book eventually and it s not really a bad story I m not sure I ll get the next book in the series I should probably read another Harrington book instead.The heroine is an issue She s young and inexperienced, and tossed into the command of [...]

  29. Gary Holt

    I liked this book than I expected to when I got it for free with Kindle Unlimited Very much in the style of the Honor Harrington books, but not a slavish imitation.To begin with, the main character is an aristocrat, promoted beyond what she earned but, we find out quickly enough, the reasons are not merely nepotism and corruption, there are valid reasons as well So this is not just a pampered aristocrat make good story, nor is it an egalitarian screed against aristocracy Further, the politics g [...]
