Publisher's Summary

From Joshua Dalzelle, author of the best-selling Omega Force series, comes an all new vision of humanity's future.
In the 25th century, humans have conquered space. The advent of faster-than-light travel has opened up hundreds of habitable planets for colonization, and humans have exploited the virtually limitless space and resources for hundreds of years with impunity. So complacent have they become with the overabundance that armed conflict is a thing of the past, and their machines of war are obsolete and decrepit. What would happen if they were suddenly threatened by a terrifying new enemy? Would humanity fold and surrender, or would they return to their evolutionary roots and meet force with force?
One ship - and one captain - will soon be faced with this very choice.

Excellent classic space opera.

If you could sum up Warship in three words, what would they be?

Couldn't put-it down.


What did you like best about this story?

Wel honed characters, good build up to the plot, exciting rollacoaster to the last page.


Have you listened to any of Mark Boyett’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Another Mark Boyett master-class! - how does he do it (I imagine it's a hell of a lot of work).


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

'Against insuperable odds'
'Die hard in space on steroids'


Any additional comments?

Extremely well written, very nicely paced, intelligent treatment of the 'first contact' scenario in the 2400. I am a classic SF and hard SF fan and I loved this book - I only hope that Joshua is working hard on the second of the series.

Finally a good space adventure book!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes I would recommend this audiobook to friends and family. The storyline was well written from start to finish. The characters were well defined in both the author writing of them and the narrators portrayal, that it really brought this story to life.


What other book might you compare Warship to, and why?

Man of war series.


Which character – as performed by Mark Boyett – was your favourite?

There was no favourite character that was performed by Mark Boyett because I like them all. It shows how great the narrator is when each character is defined by their different pitch and accents to a degree that you forget that all those voices are spoken by one person!


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

This is a Warship!


Any additional comments?

I hope Audiobooks decides to make the other books into audio. It be a shame to just leave it at Warship! The fact I liked this book so much I bought the next book but in kindle format.
