Publisher's Summary

The Terran Union is engaged in a vast interstellar war against the Krag Ruthless aliens intent on exterminating humankind. In 2315, the wily Max Robichaux is given command of the USS Cumberland, a destroyer with state-of-the-art capabilities but a combat record so bad, she’s known as the “Cumberland Gap.” Capt. Robichaux’s first mission: to take his warship to the Free Corridor, where the Krag have secretly been buying strategic materials, and to seize or destroy any ships carrying enemy cargo. Far from the fleet and under enforced radio silence, Max relies only on his determination and guile…and the support and friendship of his chief medical officer, the brilliant Dr. Sahin. Because even as he deals with the ship’s onboard problems and the stress of carrying out her risky assignment, Max and the doctor discover that the Cumberland and her misfit crew are all that stands in the way of a deadly Krag attack that threatens to end the war - and humanity - once and for all. A far-future story in the tradition of “ships of wood, men of iron” novels, To Honor You Call Us and the Man of War series combine the adventure of exploration, the excitement of war, and the dangers of the unknown through the eyes of a ship and her crew.

Thoroughly enjoyed the story

I'm not one who normally goes for military stories, but after reading the description and the reviews I decided to take a chance. Glad I did. This was an entertaining story from the very beginning. The struggles LCDR Robichaux endures with his crew and vessel are similar to other "overcoming the odds" stories but the author does well to make it unpredictable. While not a huge military buff I enjoyed the references to earth's historical wars and how they related to the war humanity finds itself in. There were plenty of humorous moments that had me laughing aloud as well (references to a certain space faring television show to start) and even though you only "meet" him for the last chapter, Admiral Hornblower was probably my favorite character. Ray Chase was an excellent narrator, bringing life and uniqueness to each of the characters. I particularly liked how each character had his own unique voice, from the very young midshipmen to the gruff and crass Admiral.

The only negative I really had was every now and then the characters would give long expositions on historical wars or explanations of culture, history, procedures, etc that, while important for the story, occasionally dragged on and seemed out of place for the scene. Despite that, I look forward to reading the other stories in this series.

Good Military Sci-Fi

It’s 200 years in the future and an alien race wants to exterminate all humans. If the Earth-based military forces do not defeat the enemy, all will be lost. In an effort to disrupt the alien’s capability to wage war, a space ship is sent on a dangerous mission to destroy supply lines. But, instead of selecting one of their best, the military has chosen a ship deemed unimportant and, if lost, of little consequence.

Like so many military sci-fi books, humans have angered another race and must battle a foe that has superior forces and technology. Unlike other books, this one is focused on shipboard life and the challenges faced by a crew at war. Reminded me of the movie “Master and Commander – the Far Side of the World” staring Russell Crowe.

Sharpe/Hornblower In Space

What was one of the most memorable moments of To Honor You Call Us?

Being Ex/Royal Navy I enjoyed all of the call backs to Naval Traditions, but with new updated nicknames. The updated lyric to Hearts of Steele (Honsiger’s version on Hearts Of Oak) gave me Goosebumps

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Navy Day

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

There's a rat in galley, whatcha gonna do?

Any additional comments?

The prologue of this book is very cheesy but once the book “starts properly it builds steadily, introducing somewhat varied characters (the main characters are all “Spacers” so are somewhat of stereo type of futuristic sailors/servicemen.) The technology is explained enough so you understand not enough to boar or baffle. Basically it’s a rollicking good (holiday) listen in the (updated) style of Bernard Cornwell’s Sharpe or C.S. Forester’s Hornblower.

Great story

If you could sum up To Honor You Call Us in three words, what would they be?

exciting and powerful.

What other book might you compare To Honor You Call Us to, and why?

The lost fleet series or even JAG in Space series. The military aspect is very good.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The opening scene where our captain boards an enemy ship and must return to his ship before the implosion charges go off.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The call has gone out

Any additional comments?

A great book. a cross between priveteers and Space Navy with a hostile alien race out to get the humans. sharpen that cutlass and prepare to repel boarders!
