It's like Cameron has been there and returned to tell the tale.

This is a great series! They are all so well written & edited and SO believable. It's like Cameron has been there and returned to tell the tale. If you like science fiction you'll love this! If you're new to SF (as I was) you should give it a chance. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader copy of this book

A GREAT sci-fi series filled with amazing characters, fantastic world building & and awesome plots

A GREAT sci-fi series filled with amazing characters, fantastic world building & and awesome plots

Book 1 - With age comes knowledge, and with knowledge you just get into more danger and trouble.
An amazing first book in this new sci-fi series. There is action, thrills, surprises, and a population in which a large majority need never know the aches and pains or show signs of aging. Space ships no longer need to take lifetimes to get from one area of space to another, they just use the"array", but the building of this amazing technology is not shared but used for power and profit. There appears to be a secret surrounding the one in power that some family members believe led to the death of one of their own, the downfall of a hero, the desertion from the military of another. The AI's are amazing in this fantastic world-building story, more than you'd ever suspect. With the help of a most unusual AI, family, and former military comrades, the heroine now knows she must find and uncover the truth. The journey is complex and filled with surprises and danger. You may think I've given you spoilers, think again cause there is sooo much happening between the lines. Start this new series and continue the journey; onward towards the stars, unknown dangers, and new discoveries

Book 1.1 - Short stories can be filled with just as much adventure as a "not a short story".
I liked everything in this amazingly jammed packed with action, short story. I love the series and the gal who takes no prisoners. This story has a good guy, who knows how to give our gal the help she needs to overcome the bad guys AND best of all she finds, helps, and bonds to the best creature ever. You want to know why I'm so excited, well get this book now and read all about a past adventure. By the way Cameron, can we get this guy in another book?

Book 2 - It's really hard to keep secrets when someone is listening from inside your head.
The story continues with more action, thrills, suspense, and betrayal discovered but kept quiet. We learn a bit more about the ongoing characters, both human and not, their strengths and weaknesses. New to the scene are unusually strong rangers but wait, maybe they're not rangers; holy moly are they even human? But bigger question, who sent them? Does the heroine of the story figure it out in time? Another question, did I miss something, where the heck did Varg come from; wherever it is I want the full meet and greet story. Exciting sci-fi from start to finish.

Book 3 - What can you do when an AI goes mad after it goes sentient
I love sci-fi and this story makes me love it even more. All of the characters, and their interactions, show us of the closeness and trust they hold for each other. The heroine is a no nonsense, believes in her gut feelings and has no qualms in acting on them. The story is filled with constant action, danger, and written in such a way that has you believing the technical jargon is absolutely possible. OMG, what happens in the last chapter is so astonishing that book 4 is for sure going to be filled with double the action and if secrets get out it will be explosive.  I highly recommend this book to lovers of pure sci-fi adventures

Book 4 - You didn't do it, but how can it be proved when everyone is trying to kill you
This sci-fi thriller just gets better and better. Danny, our heroine, and her crew (and speaking of the crew, there's a new one aboard, well not quite new, let's just say human) are trying to stay hidden and safe, but at the same time trying to find answers and help. This is pretty hard to do when the world is trying to kill you before you can get a chance to prove your innocence. Her "enemy" won't forgive her and will do anything to get revenge. I don't do spoilers, so you'll have to use your imagination, better yet read the book and the ending alone will make you say "OH NO", how is she going to get out of this one

Book 5 - Can Danny get everyone to work together so they can save those that lived through the destruction.
Wow, what an awesome Sci-Fi story. This fifth book in this series was amazing, I loved the science and gung-ho in the story. The attitude of all those affected by death and betrayal finally gets them all working towards the same goal; the heart and stamina to save everyone's lives and be free of the demented murderous Array and a dying planet. As the last of the survivors leave the planet our heroine, Danny was determined to do to the gate what her namesake, The Imperial Hammer, would do. BUT OMG after finding out what she learned at the end, i can't wait to start book 6

Sci-Fi Goodness all in One Place!!

***** 1.0: Hammer and Crucible​
Fabulous Sci-fi Adventure!!
In a future where longevity is the norm as people rejuvenate to keep themselves “young”, interstellar travel occurs through arrays, and you print most of what you need. An event negatively affects a family so a grandmother and her granddaughter undertake a journey to discover the truth behind what occurred.

You will be transported to another dimension. The attention to detail makes everything you read plausible and you’ll exist in this new world along with these characters in this incredible story.

***** ​1.1:An Average Night on Androkles​
Delightful piece of Early Danny!!
If you’ve read my reviews of any of this fabulous series you know I love Varg – the parawolf. This is Varg’s official introduction. Danny is going for a low-key night out, perhaps a date. But there are kidnappings, threats on life and we get to meet Varg – I loved every word!!

***** ​2.0: Star Forge​
An Impossible Situation – Sci-Fi Adventure!!
Our heroine Danny is “attached” to a self-aware interstellar array (Noam) which can see and hear everything through her own sight and hearing. When a series of mishaps seems to be more than coincidence, how does one work around that danger when the array knows everything she does??

Noam is an all-powerful entity, with an adolescent temper. Yikes!

Clever, intricate and entertaining. Definitely makes you think. Such a unique concept. Exceptionally executed!

***** ​3.0: Long Live the Emperor​
This Fascinating series continues to Entertain!!
Brilliant and intricate. The story of traveling across space where space stations and gates are controlled by an array. That array is now “self aware” and a bit of a petulant child. Our main characters have angered the array, and must deal with the aftermath.

They must work “under the covers” to discover where the array is amassing its army, and save some who are “stranded” by the array along the way.

Many memorable characters – but my favorite is Varg, the parawolf. A faithful companion and terrific battle partner. Splendid entertainment to be found here!!

***** ​4.0: Severed​
An Impossible mission, Simply Captivating!!
Once again, our band of characters work against impossible odds. An apparent murder well publicized, a bounty with no limits, and an all-powerful being who can track your every move. What’s not to love about that??

Clever and entertaining. As these characters get incrementally closer to their goal, we gain more backstory, meet some new characters and feel the tension as lives and perhaps the entire infrastructure of this world are at stake. Varg, perhaps my favorite character, once again plays a fabulous role in this story.

Edge of your seat action will keep you captivated until the final page!!

***** ​5.0: Destroyer of Worlds​
Wow – Terrific Conclusion to This Entertaining Series!!!
Hopefully you’ve read the other stories in this series. A self-aware array has had a temper tantrum and destroyed a space station, housing millions. Danny and her crew are stranded on planet. No more printing food or clothes. A need to grow food and sew clothes suddenly takes life to a very basic level.

When flares occur, the focus of all on the planet changes. Teams must create or convert ships.

Our crew is still clever and creative. But this is a true make or break moment for them. Even if they can leave the planet, does danger still await them in space? Spectacular story with everything on the line.

This series is a mind-blowing story in a captivating world with exceptional characters!

I thoroughly enjoyed this whole series and found it packed with electrifying action and captivating character building throughout. Each book in the series adds more depth to the characters and evolves the story of Danny and her crew with exciting detail and a well written story that made them impossible to put down! I treasured the (often hidden but) loving nature, humanity and honour of the characters, not just their exciting adventures.

I enjoyed getting to know the excellent characters set against a beautifully crafted space-based 'world' and it's technological constructs. The complex concepts of the space-based life were broken into easy-to-read bites making this adventure totally captivating! Plot twists throughout the series serve to make each book even better than the last.

I finished the series satisfied that there were no loose ends and feeling good about the characters and their future...whatever it may hold.

The Imperial Hammer Series Set

Wonderful series now all in one place. Highly recommended. The world building is fabulous, the character complex, well-developed and engaging. Danny and the crew feel like family in this complicated space opera saga. It is easy to get lost in this world. I am reading the whole series for a second time.

The Umb Judeste, Beyond The Inner Elbow.

Stellar barges are generally run by family corporations.  Mine, The Umb Judeste, belongs to Carranoak Inc. I hold a razor thin majority of shares, so technically, the barge is mine.  The irony of that struck me as I laid on steel decking, staring up at dazzling daylights, my jaw on fire.  I had been slugged right on the corner of the jaw, in a near-perfect roundhouse swing, by the only member of the Carranoak family who could claim a second degree relationship to me. 

Until that moment, I hadn’t known she was on the barge.  Perfect fucking greeting.

I had come down to the main concourse when I heard a supply frigate had just emerged through the gate and was coupled to the Judeste. Supply ships provide a break from the routine.  There’s always something interesting on them, even if it was just the communications squirt that comes along for the ride when a ship used the gate.  Current gossip is addictive, especially when you haven’t got much else to do.

I stood at the edge of the swirl of new people carrying sacks or briefcases, or nothing.  Some stared at the signposts for directions.  Judeste personnel plucked travelers out of the stream and took them away. Others were regular visitors and they strode off, confident of their direction.

I got startled looks and second glances as the arrivals passed by.  I was used to that and ignored it.

One of the junior pursers, Jimmy, spoke to a tall woman with wheat colored hair that matched mine—or, I should say, mine as it used to be.  She was tall, had a small sack over one shoulder, a military bearing and civilian clothes.  Jimmy turned and pointed at me. 

That got me curious.  I waited as the woman wound her way through the milling arrivals.  As she drew closer I realized it wasn’t just the hair which was similar.  She came right up to me with a fast, long-legged stride, her face working.  At the last second I realized who she was.

Before I could open my mouth, she swung her fist.  “Double-timing broad!” she ground out as her punch landed.  I went down heavily.  Of course I did.  I figure it’s been sixty years since I’d last taken one in the face. The old bones have turned brittle since then.

As everyone lingering in the arrival area formed a loose circle around us, muttering to each other with delighted horror, I pressed my fingers against the tender spot and wondered if my jaw had dislocated.  These days, just tripping over my own feet could be fatal.  My heart staggered, righted itself and decided to keep ticking, for now.  The sour taste of adrenaline made me swallow.  Swallowing hurt, too.

“Hello, granddaughter,” I croaked.

Juliyana bent and peered at me.  Was she waiting for me to get up so she could take another swing?  She’d have to live with disappointment. 

Her face worked with the fury driving her.  The anger checked as she watched me gasping.  Her gaze measured me—properly, this time.  Her mouth opened.  Horror painted her face.  “Shit on a shovel…you…you’re old!

“Not too fucking old to hit, though, right?”

Juliyana propped her hands on her knees, bellowing hard.  She was still a Ranger, last I’d heard, so it wasn’t unaccustomed exercise shorting her breath.  I’d seen guilt rip the guts of people before, though.

I held up a hand.  “Help me up,” I demanded.  “Then you can explain to me what the fuck is going on.”
