    Rarely have I read a novel that integrated plot and character development so well The story of Captain Hugo and his assignment to the spaceship Zero builds slowly at first giving the reader time to meet the large cast of characters Before too

    Goodreads First Reads winner I really enjoyed reading this book It didn't have many slow points and had some twists in it that you don't see from the beginning The world is well framed and you can see yourself in it

    This is an ambitious first novel one which creates a sprawling and credible near future a tense and turbulent political situation and then throws a rogue crew of space pirates into the mix We’re a long way from old school ‘hard’ sci fi which tried as hard to be technically accurate as it did to tell a good story Nope think instead of Star Wars Star Trek Stargate Firefly Farscape and all Zero certainly a

    REVIEW From page one I thought this would be a new series that would be a definite winner The author used a different approach to sci fi Commander Kaleb Hugo is disgraced after not adhering to several commands ordering retreat Even though he was disgraced he was promoted to be the captain of the ZERO The ZERO was a ship

    I admit it Sci fi isn’t my usual cup o’ tea so I approached this novel with a little skepticism Within a few pages though I knew I was reading a writer in full command of her craft no pun intendedCollyer intr

Zero By J.S. Collyer

I­fied as at best a pri­va­teer ship and at worst a smug­gling and crim­i­nal enter­prise vessel But what very few know is that the Zero and her crew are con­tracted by the Ser­vice Their role is to inves­ti­gate and infil­trate the less savoury lev­els of soci­ety They sell on buy in bar­gain threaten and report back on every­thing the polit­i­cal lev­els the Ser­vice don’t offi­cially want to know aboutThe Zero’s rag ​​tag crew look to their com­man­der Ezekiel Webb as their leader and mid­dle­man between the reg­i­mented expec­ta­tions of the Ser­vice and the harsh and unpre­dictable demands of the under­world of colo­nial My earliest memories of science fiction all revolve around Wookies and green skinned aliens and having to learn different languages or else read sub titles As a child I enjoyed the space battles and futuristic technology but for some reason never got into reading this genre For me it was always visual perhaps because a lot of those stories were created to showcase new techniues in special effectsSo how does a writer carry a story full of action without the benefit of CGI and a John Williams scoreWell in the case of Zero by JS Collyer the answer begins with the characters she creates This begins as the story of Captain Hugo a disgraced starship captain whose career is seemingly over following uestionable actions he made following his heart instead of blindly following ordersThis immediately endears him to the reader who doesn t love someone who breaks the rules in order to do what they believe to be right But Hugo isn t a lawless rebel uite the contrary actually He s a Service man through and through and I found him eually infuriating and loveable which made for a great dynamicThe story s other main character Zeke Webb the commander of the starship Zero is a survivor and something of a pirate He s learned to adapt his ideals and morality in order to make a living and to protect his crew He and Hugo make an unlikely pair at first but the friendship that develops between them becomes one of this novel s great strengthsThe crew of the Zero work under the guise that they are space pirates but are in fact working for the Service to carry out under the radar missions too risky for above board operations As the story develops we learn about political instabilities on the Lunar Colonies and factions that would like to exploit that and declare independence from the Service Zero is sent on missions to thwart these factions and as each mission seems to be progressively difficult and dangerous they begin to make some disturbing discoveriesThe story is full of political intrigue and subterfuge and about half way through takes a twist that gives the story an entirely new dynamic and causes it to pick up furious speed Once all the pieces of the story came together I was unable to put this novel down reading the last 100 pages in one go I had to know how it was going to turn out and with only 15 pages left still wasn t entirely convinced I knew how it was going to endThe action seuences are very well written and don t read like blocking or choreographing as is sometimes the case with some writers This is science fiction but isn t bogged down with pseudo scientific jargon or strange inaccessible concepts that only appeal to sci fi enthusiasts This is simply a good story part mystery part adventure filled with great characters and enough twists to keep it unpredictable and interestingI highly recommend this book the writing is solid the storytelling is easy to follow and you ll be hungry to read about the

Space He has lived in both worlds his whole life and has trouble adjusting to Hugo as he has every captain before himHugo has to find a way to manage this unruly ship and unruly crew as they are pulled deeper into an orbit ​​wide game of pol­i­tics deceit and cor­rup­tion which will threaten to tear them apart as well as throw human­ity back into a cycle of war and destruc­tion Hugo Webb and the crew will have to over­come per­sonal tragedy insur­mount­able odds and every depraved twist of fate that the Orbit can throw at them in order to survive and prevent events that could threaten the lives of millionsFor Kaleb Hugo nothing will ever be certain agai This is an ambitious first novel one which creates a sprawling and credible near future a tense and turbulent political situation and then throws a rogue crew of space pirates into the mix We re a long way from old school hard sci fi which tried as hard to be technically accurate as it did to tell a good story Nope think instead of Star Wars Star Trek Stargate Firefly Farscape and all Zero certainly aims highAlthough Zero is set in space and in the future it s not really space opera as such This isn t about galaxy spanning travel it s about human interactions set against the backdrop of a fragmenting social structure This isn t the gleaming world of JJ Abrams Star Trek where everything is crisp and white and perfectly functional Instead it s dark grubby and corrupt people scratch out miserable existences on remote way stations and shabby lunar colonies Author JR Collyer has cleverly created an environment which is entirely her own but also feels extremely familiar allowing the reader to follow the plot at a ripping pace without getting bogged down in endless techobabbleThere s a wee bit too much running and shouting and shooting in the several set piece action seuences I know I m probably twice the age of the average Zero reader which might have something to do with my ennui but it felt kinda repetitive after a while The narrative really came alive for me not in the extended descriptions of running down corridors and being blown halfway to bits but in the tense interplay between the two lead characters Then there s one gob smacking I DON T BELIEVE IT moment which I can t reveal cos it d spoil too much where I literally suealed while reading And I m old And I really have read it all before It takes a lot to make me suealThere s thoughts on plot and characters over at then Zero is an extremely entertaining read It doesn t bend any boundaries by extrapolating new technologies nor does it challenge the reader s comprehension with experimental styles I hope that in future Collyer steers her space series towards the speculative and fantastic aspects of the genre and spends a bit less time choreographing fist fights It s definitely a delight to find a talented new author who s obviously enthused about the genre and has plans to explore itMore spaceships please More space battles please And some aliens Can we have aliens next time around710
