If you wish for peace, prepare for war.
-Royal Navy Motto

Seventy years ago, the interstellar supercarrier Ark Royal was the pride of the Royal Navy. But now, her weapons are outdated and her solid-state armour nothing more than a burden on her colossal hull. She floats in permanent orbit near Earth, a dumping ground for the officers and crew the Royal Navy wishes to keep out of the public eye.

But when a deadly alien threat appears, the modern starships built by humanity are no match for the powerful alien weapons. Ark Royal and her mismatched crew must go on the offensive, buying time with their lives And yet, with a drunkard for a Captain, an over-ambitious first officer and a crew composed of reservists and the dregs of the service, do they have even the faintest hope of surviving …

… And returning to an Earth which may no longer be there?

[Like my other self-published Kindle books, Ark Royal is DRM-free. You may reformat it as you choose. There is a large sample of the text – and my other books – on my site: chrishanger.net. Try before you buy.]

As usual with the author, we find a great work of world-building in a good scifi story that leaves the reader wanting to know more about the characters, their opponents, their allies and their environment. Also to be noted the effort made to remain as hard in terms of realism as possible in the writing. It is not 2001-hard, of course, but as far as military scifi goes, this is consistent, believable and enjoyable, three adjectives you do not see together that often in scifi.

Grand old space opera!

Once again Christopher Nuttall lives up to his reputation, Ark Royal is a rip roaring tale that I couldn’t put down. A space opera in the old tradition, Ark Royal follows the adventures of the titular ship, an old carrier that has been maintained as a show-piece but now is all that stands between Earth and an Alien fleet.
