Read The Oncoming Storm (Angel in the Whirlwind, #1) Online Free - In the year 2420, war looms between the galaxy’s two most powerful empires: the tyrannical Theocracy and the protectionist Commonwealth. Caught in the middle sits the occupied outpost system Cadiz, where young officer and aristocrat Katherine “Kat” Falcone finds herself prematurely promoted at the behest of her powerful father. Against her own wishes, Kat is sent to command the Commonwealth navy’s newest warship, Lightning.
Determined to prove she has value beyond her family name, Kat struggles to earn her crew’s respect and find her footing as the youngest captain in naval history. She soon discovers the situation on Cadiz is even worse than anyone in power anticipated. War isn’t just a possibility—it is imminent. Yet the admiral in position to bolster defenses refuses to prepare for a fight. Can Kat find a way to investigate the enemy, alert the Commonwealth, and whip an entire fleet into fighting shape before the Theocracy’s war machine destroys everything she holds dear?

Solid science fiction/military fiction/space opera about a young officer who unexpectedly finds themselves as the captain of a space-ship (unexpectedly as in, she hasn't been captain before, and the level of spaceship is several levels higher than her first command should be).
I acknowledge notici...

I have to say that I am quite amazed at the productivity of Christopher Nuttall. With The Oncoming Storm he has managed to start yet another great book series. I am actually quite concerned that he is going to overstretch himself sooner or later. So far however, he has managed to keep up both his...

fast, entertaining and what one expects given the blurb and the author; while most of his books have been independently published, this one is released under the 47 North imprint (Amazon sff) and even a cursory comparison with the original version (available free on the author's homepage under th...

THE ONCOMING STORM is the first book of the ANGEL IN THE WHIRLWIND series, which I admit seems to be a little wordy for a series title.

a new space opera!
Ok, I really enjoyed the beginnings of this space opera. A tad midshipman Honor Harrington meets a young Herris Serrano.
I know the plot is somewhat familiar but that didn't lessen my enjoyment one iota.
It's 2040 and war is on the horizon for those with eyes too see between two e...

I like Kat and William, but emotionally they are flat. I did not connect with them and any other charac...

This is a lively space warfare tale, pitting the Commonwealth against the Theocracy and showing us many individuals including some who are not strictly on either side.
There are echoes of classics such as Star Trek The Next Generation in the ranks, ship setup and other features, but we meet a new...
