I must be masochistic. After the train wreck that was the first book, I moved on to the next book in the series with the hope that it might possibly be an improvement.Nope.This one doesn't even have the saving grace of a creative universe to push it up from a one star. The elements that made the universe interesting in the first book have been sacrificed on the altar of the storyline.The main character is still a misogynistic jerk, and he adds royal ho bag to that list as well.The female lead is [...]

2 stars - Metaphorosis ReviewsIn this second volume of the Lightship Chronicles, Commander/Prince Peter Cochrane, serving in the Union space fleet with his lover, repeatedly faces dangerous situations and difficult moral, political, and personal decisions.It's always hard to come into a series partway through, but Dave Bara does a nice job of setting the scene, and deftly giving us enough backstory to follow what's going on without trouble. The problem, unfortunately, is that I didn't have any g [...]

this book was a disappointment compared to the first one. The author does not seem to understand science at all confusing acceleration and velocity, using light seconds as a measure of time, and filling the battles with nonsense physics--whatever string of technical sounding but essentially meaningless words it takes to satisfy the situation. Good but cookie cutter. I'll read the next one in the series but I'm not looking forward to them with as much enthusiasm.

Starboard is a typical middle book in a trilogy. There are multiple problems that Peter has to face. First is a unexpected attack with the loss of many of the people under Peter's command. Then he has to face changes in his family. Finally he is captured and almost executed for losing the Impulse (see book one). Each of those events are a part of the set up for the next book in the series. The Lightship Chronicles continues to be an exciting and tension filled space opera series.

2nd book in the series and doesn't disappoint. It isn't trying to be clever or challenging, but it is certainly entertaining. Plenty of zipping around in FTL space craft, saving planets from destruction. Throw in the odd bit of love interest and you end up with what space opera is meant to be all about.

Quick read. Fluffy. Like SciFi from years ago. Nothing deep here.

Dave Bara 's sophomore effort in The Lightship series is a good space opera despite the technobabble. It takes a while for the action to soar, but once it does Starbound is fun.

This is the 2nd book in the Lightship Chronicles by Dave Bara. The first book, Impulse, was a really good read but this book is even better. In the last book the Lightship Impulse was destroyed leaving few survivors. Peter Cochrane was one of those and is now assigned to the Lightship Starbound. They are sent on a first contact mission but discover old Founder technology in the system and are nearly destroyed before they can destroy the Founder space station. They return to Quantar and Peter and [...]

There is no stronger force in universe than gravity? Really?

Another formulaic space fleet adventure, with our princely hero bedding the dames, winning battles, and advancing his career. There's more world-building, with a wider range of planets and a princess to wed. The old Empire still survives and has technologies that rival and perplex the Union forces and skullduggery by the Carinthian Prince Regent almost breaks apart the Union Navy. The Historians from Earth play their role as Imperial agents in one case and as enigmatic councilors with hints that [...]

There's sci-fi with technical accuracy and then there's the stuff without. This is without, not a problem, but every once in a while I had to quash the voice in my head saying "Oh come on! Relativity exists!" Anyway, book 3 should be interesting. The main character made 5 choices that are going to have consequences going forward, and the choices tips him from being immature 'hero-type' character to disturbing and frightening 'pragmatist' if he doesn't sort himself out. Which is more character de [...]

Quick fluffy scfi read, & I do hate starting on book two, now will have to find book one to see if it made more sense Wise elders (historians) counseling the young Union, which is just starting to feel it's oats. We open into a fight with killer robots Then they are never heard from again. Swordplay amongst the stars, buckles to be swashed, planets to save, never a dull nor to deep a moment, but a fun read.

I read this without reading the first book, which for some reason my library doesnt have. My initial impression was that it might have helped quite a bit, but in the end, I concluded while it might have been nice, it would not have changed my opinion of Starbound. I didn't care much for the "science" or the "historian" character/position.In the end, I'd say read it if you like space opera, its good enough in its genre, but if you tend towards hard science, I'd pass

Was unable to finish. While some of the space operatic action was passable, if one didn't scrutinize the science too closely, the stilted writing and the diverting pointless love interest fragmented the whole until there was no interest left.

Space opera with princes, princesses and a hint of evil aliens to come.
