A remote solar system

A fragile galactic alliance

An interstellar war is on the brink of eruption…

When the Lightship Impulse is attacked without provocation, Lt. Peter Cochrane, son of the Grand Admiral, is sent to investigate.

His first deep space mission, this isn’t what Peter has spent three years in training for. Surrounded by strangers and following secret orders, is he willing to do what it takes to keep the alliance together? Even mutiny?

‘If you liked Star Trek Into Darkness, you’ll like Dave Bara’s IMPULSE.’Jack Campbell, bestselling author of the Lost Fleet series

‘This energetic mélange of tried-and-true elements—futuristic jargon, military and romantic tactics, and multiple levels of skullduggery—easily grabs the reader’s attention; more impressive is that Bara’s story holds that attention all the way to the end.’Publishers Weekly

IMPULSE is fun, fast, and proper science fiction. Where the stakes are big, and things matter because the characters matter. I enjoyed the hell out of this. Impulse should be an impulse buy.’ —  Simon R. Green, bestselling author of the Nightside series
