review The Caphenon Chronicles of Alsea #1 The Caphenon Chronicles of Alsea #1 Read & Download ☆ 4 Summary Ø PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ☆ Fletcher DeLancey A split second decision to save a civilization Another decision to give it away Captain Ekatya Serrado has spent her career fighting the Voloth who view less advanced civilizations as fuel for their empire The choice between saving. Between the near perfect Past Imperfect series and Without a Front I was rather skeptical the author could sueeze another compelling tale out of that universe that we all haven t read before I am kinda wary of re writes and edits for publication sometimes they re marginally better sometimes they turn out worse as when short stories or novellas get stretched out but this is just so surprisinglyperfect Alsea is a fertile planet with a thriving but non spacefaring civilization who like us gaze upon the stars and wonder if aliens exist They get the surprise and shock of their lives when their first close encounter ever is when two alien ships duke it out over their skies Fortunately the right one is obliterated and the surviving aliens appear to be their saviors But the joy is short lived as the Alseans discover that they are a highly coveted prize in an interstellar political tug of war And if the wrong guys win its curtains for life as it is on AlseaThis book can stand proud beside the most popular mainstream sci fi works in terms of the science part of the fiction The rich complex world of Alsea and the religious social and political norms of its inhabitants are well delineated The details on the physics of space travel weapons battle strategies and staging political alliances elements so essential to sci fi world building were all there but not dumped on the reader in a way that will make one fall asleep What makes it a better read than the typical sci fi thriller is its accessibility The expositions are sprinkled in well timed doses and worded so as to engage rather than bury the reader in technobabble But what really makes it appeal to us ordinary readers is that underneath the sci fi exterior lies a beautiful and very powerful story of love and friendship amid a gripping tale of survival of apocalyptic proportions Plot wise after the initial excitement and mini battle things kind of simmer down a bit as the book takes some time with the world building and character intros I was initally thrown for a loop as some major characters were transplanted from the old series but with somewhat similar names but different circumstances so this was also a good time to get reacuainted with them and figure out their relationship dynamics in this book The lack of action and conflict during this portion and some of the techy stuff may discourage some readers but stick with it the second half is such a gripping read you won t want to put down the book till the end Aside from the inter species conflicts the book delves into a number of complex personal moral ethical and spiritual conflicts experienced by the main characters while carrying out their respective duties and whether the ends ever justify the means These philosophical and personal struggles are what elevate the book far above the usual lesfic or sci fi fare Another noteworthy aspect is the author s depiction of the two women protagonists Type A leaders brilliant headstrong honorable torn between loyalty friendship and their inner moral compass and their impossibly complicated relationship view spoilerAm I the only one who wished these two got together instead I can t remember a book with two unforgettable protagonists and the one time it happens they re not meant for each other hide spoiler

Brilliant DeLancey is a genius I don t generally read sci fi but was a Trekkie fan so can relate to life on board a starship and the structure of command needed to train a crew What blew me away in The Caphenon was the world building Alsea and the empathic Alseans are so well drawn you feel like you are right there on ground worrying about protecting the planet these gentle or not so gentle if you insult one people and discovering their belief systems and way of lifeI would recommend this book to anyone You will be drawn in by the relationships and the world Delancey has created There were times when I was thinking a whole wiki could be designed as there is so much fascinating cultural information here for all you nerds For the rest of us the author has kindly included a glossary so you can keep your bondmates and your tyree sorted outExcellent read One of my favourites for 2015

My first book by this authorI went into this both interested and somewhat concerned Interested because the story itself sounded interesting Concerned because everyone seems to love the book with around 9 exceptions or in other words 70% of the people who rated the book rated it 5 starsThe book kept my interest from beginning to end And the interesting little description turned into an interesting read If I keep using the word interesting it will begin to lose its meaningIf I recall correctly this is the first science fiction book I ve been able to get myself to dive into and complete that involved lesbians at least one that wasn t based on earth That lesbian part iswas both important and not important Though the important part was the relationship itself regardless of the person or genders involved As in the issues and conflicts like say conflict of interest would have been the same regardless of the genders involved same sex or otherwise In other words the nature of the relationship was an important plot point in the story but the book itself is of a science fiction book that happens to have a couple making up two of the prominent characters as opposed to a romance that happens to have a science fiction backdrop Hopefully I ve worded this coherently enoughI went into this book with some vague idea that this was a reformatted rewordedworked Star Trek Voyager fan fiction novel I know this author has written those but I m not actually sure if this is one or not My point in bringing this up is that I went into the book with this idea so that kept popping up in my mind as I was reading It was something that would pop up as a remembrance rather than a ha ha points that s Voyager like I ve read 15 Voyager books and seen I believe all episodes of the television series Though I ve a vague recollection that somewhere along the way I might have skipped an episode here or there I write all this to note that I wish I hadn t had this vague idea before I went into the book Because it served as an unneeded distraction This specific book here works uite well on its own merits And the book was obviously enough not a Star Trek book obvious as in it uses different words for things like Protectorate instead of Federation and while it had something of that seeding alien race thing that popped up on Star Trek the Next Generation that isn t a theme that only appears in Star Trek it s also in other science fiction universes there s a whole series of Larry Niven books that involve both a seeder race and seeded races There were similarities but this had its own little self contained universe to play in Well the book itself or I mean the story the book opens as a watcher type watches a screen watching stuff fall onto a planet His planet He is all excited because He ll be able to direct various scientists to great finds Then falling objects appear Then one breaks apart into tiny bits while the other continues to fall And is really really huge And is headed directly towards a city People are warned specifically one Lancer Tal evacuation orders are begun to be ordered Then something strange occurs the object looks as if it is starting to glide away from the city Though it will still land nearby Lancer Tal and a group of guards head out to the crash site And stare at what appears to be an alien ship One long running uestion has been answered Aliens do in fact exist Tal watches as three figures stumble out of a hatch onto the ship and begin the slow process of walking across the ship down a ladder Lancer Tal comes face to face with Captain Serrado It s a relatively slow process but eventually the nature of who and what these aliens are discussed and revealed They are Gaians And they accidentally ended up on their planet because their fusion core was about to explode Damaged as it was during a battle against a third group of aliens the Voloth sp The Voloth were there to invade and conuer The Gaians had been there to observe the Alseans that being the name of the planet and intervened when Voloth forces attackedFirst contact occurs among these primitive Alseans and these Gaians I don t actually recall Alsean actually being used in the book though it might have been The primitives turn out to be a lot less primitive than expected This is a book that feels longer than it actually is at least I felt that way when I was at the 40% mark I don t mean that in a bad way More in that a lot of stuff interesting stuff was happeningHmms I should probably scrap this write up and start over I m not really doing a great job conveying what I want to convey I say this knowing I ll probably just leave it as is But hey I might come back and fix this later I liked this book I might read the next book in this series immediately Haven t determined that yetJanuary 7 2016
