Product description

Product Description

Captain Nova Whiteside receives new technology designed to change the dynamics of the Commonwealth wars. Enemy factions conspire and so Nova finds herself aboard a rebel ship where her value as hostage isn't nearly as great as her value as a defector.

Also suspected of collaboration, her Delphian Vanguard partner Tychon sets out to track her down. He discovers a puzzling piece of Nova's past when a motley alliance of strangers comes to his aid and their search leads him deep into rebel territory.

When the full consequences of the rebels' ambitions become clear, far removed from the intervention of Air Command, Tychon and Nova are forced to consider the unthinkable.

This is Book Four of the Targon Tales although it is, like the preceding volumes, a complete stand-alone story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fourth book lives up to expectations 1 March 2015
By Força Porto! - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
In this fourth book in the Targon Tales-- and apparently the last to feature Capt. Nova Whiteside as protagonist-- the Rebel Alliance captures Whiteside shortly after she has received an implant designed to allow her to communicate telepathically across vast regions of space, via the equivalent of wormholes. Two separate factions of the Alliance separately managed to learn about the Union Commonwealth of Planets' R&D program, and Whiteside, a youth from the planet Delphi named Jovan, and a dozen scientists and technicians from the project are taken while trying to escape from the rebels-- their ship and that of the rebels end up jumping to an uncharted star system without habitable planets, in a jump that killed the pilot, like Whiteside equipped with the experimental implants. The Rebel captain says that unless Whiteside uses her implant to jump them back, he said I'll kill her and the other hostages.

That's just the setup, for a book that is not just an exciting work of space opera but also contains an interesting question of ethics: is it right to kill a thousand people to save the lives of millions?

If you haven't read Reher before, I envy you for having it still ahead of you... but this really isn't the best place to start. Sky Hunter is the first book about Nova Whiteside's career, and this is the rare series in which we can watch the protagonist grow not only in terms of skills but also as a moral and ethical human being from novel to novel.

If there's a fault here, it is less the author's than his creation's: it does seem a shame that two separate (and competing) factions of the Rebels' spy services had managed to penetrate a top secret Union scientific research center while the Union's security services were clueless!

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite book of the series 29 May 2013
By MsTee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The third book in the series, Rebel Alliances maintains the fire and charm that exists in the previous novels. We find Nova, no longer a 'greenie' but a proven soldier, on a new mission. She is to test a new type of gear that will greatly improve communication methods in the military. But not everyone is pleased with this change, and so, Nova finds herself, once again in the middle of a military wide fight - and against people she trusted.

There is no limit of action in this book. I'll even say it has MORE action (as well as some very comedic moments - re: Tychon and Seth hehehe) than its predecessor! The fight scenes are still descriptive, and the near-misses and plots of escape are enjoyable. The main characters, Tychon and Nova showcase how a close companionship can change people. Tychon's sharp edges have softened (positively!) and he is more lenient and approachable. Nova is stronger, much more self-assured, less gullible and headstrong.

A few new characters have been introduced and I was pleased to see the reappearance of previous ones, and their active participation in Nova's mission. There are instances when the line is blurred and you can't decide who is the 'good guy' and who's the 'bad guy,' and I like that. I like that Reher is constantly forcing Nova to question whether her actions and decisions are truly the right ones, and that they give the bad guy likeable qualities.

Rebel Alliances is my favourite of the series. It was a hard choice since I really enjoyed 'Only Human' and 'The Catalyst,' but the characters have evolved and the story is richer. The ending has also left me with a hope that there may be a fourth in the series, so I'm just biding my time until then. I definitely recommend giving this book a read!

Love a good a space soap opera and this is a great read. Love the plot development, too. Hope Chris is planning a story for Tychon's son, inter reacting with Cyann in some fashion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Sci-Fi mixed with a little Romance! 4 May 2013
By Karen Ball - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is one book of a series, but can be read without the others. This book is great sci-fi mixed with romance, the stories are new , the suspense is great, the characters believable and I just couldn't wait to read them all. The books remind me of some good Star Trek. Great writing, great reading!
