Praise for Impulse

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

This first in the series promises some epic dust-ups

John Wyatt, The Sun

Impulse shows what J. J. Abrams could have done with Into Darkness if he was less obsessed with flashy effects and more interested in substantial storytelling


In short, Impulse is a winner for me.
