I hope that too! But that's totally up to Cross Cult.
This is probably the least interesting aspect of a physical English release but I wonder if they'll adapt Cross Cult's spine design or keep the image and change the rest.
Won't it be ebook only and not a physical version?
Depends on how well it sells.
And the original release in English is an electronic version, yes?
The German physical and Kindle books are already available on Amazon, and I'm pretty sure the English e-book will be too.
Thanks JD I really have been wanting to get these books.
I've just started reading book 1 and I like it. Too early to make further comments, though.
Admiral Rohde......he he!!!!!
Since @Bernd Perplies has received his author copies of the English version I figured it wouldn't be the worst idea to get the review thread on the front page.
@trampledamage : Could you please change the thread title to PRO: Fire with Fire by Bernd Perplies & Christian Humberg Review Thread
I kept in the German title, since it is a German language novel with a translation - rather than the other way around,
The release date on Amazon is the 28th, the paperbacks will probably start to pop up before that, but e-book readers will have to wait until that date.
Bumping this, as both Therin and I have received our copies, so this book is out there. Of course we’ll have to wait till next November for “In The Heart Of Chaos” to finish the English trilogy.
I’ve been reading the first book over the past two days. It’s going to be hard to wait for book 3 next November!
Ok—-I wasn’t expecting to see Gowron’s old flagship!
Yeah. I know what you mean. We - Christian and me - also would've liked a monthly or perhaps bi-monthly release schedule, but Titan Books choose a 6-month period.
So far I’m finding that the first 15 chapters are reading like a pilot. In a way it’s reminding me of the plotting of “Encounter At Farpoint” where there tended to give each character a scene to introduce them, unlike TOS, DS9, Voyager & Enterprise where the characters were introduced in a more ensemble way.
Isn't that pretty much what all of the literary series' first books have been like?
I enjoyed it. Different, but that's not a bad thing. Looking forward to the rest of the trilogy. It's always nice to see a fresh take on things.
