Warship: Black Fleet Trilogy 1 (Volume 1), Joshua Dalzelle Kindle version.
I love science fiction, but this is the first book by Joshua Dalzelle that I’ve read. I have to admit that this book starts so slowly that I put it down more than once for days before I picked it up determined to finish it. I’m glad I did because hiding behind a slow start is a very nicely written story that will be very hard for real science fiction fans to put down.
Begin with a ship destined for scrap, a crew of misfits and a captain hated by his arrogant superiors, throw in a complacent, clueless and arrogant society, add a huge load of completely unanticipated alien technology, biology and aggressiveness, mix it carefully with mysterious irritating spies and an executive office set up to relieve the captain of command at the most critical moment and you have first rate scifi entertainment.
Black fleet is being scrapped. No human fleet has allegedly ever encountered an alien race. All of the other fleets are political juggernauts used and abused by politicians to keep confederations and alliances functioning. Captain Jackson Wolfe is personally hated by Admiral Winters who sends him and his ship, the Blue Jacket to the frontier on a mission in which the Admiral hopes Captain Wolfe will either self-destruct or she will be able to fabricate enough false evidence against him to imprison him. However, the Blue Jacket encounters a challenge that brings out the best in Captain Wolfe and his crew, and demands that humanity change its defense philosophy in order to survive.
Warship by Joshua Dalzelle is a fine yarn and a great suggested read for scifi folks. I’m looking forward to the next book in the Black Fleet Trilogy.

Authors need reviews!
Need reviews? I will provide a FREE honest review for 4-6 fiction books each month from specified genre. Reviews are always FREE, I read the following genre: mystery, crime, and science fiction/fantasy only. No romance, young adult, religious or erotica. As a lifelong reader I do not care for serial series books; I will accept them, but I will review them based on my satisfaction with only the story contained in the volume I reviewed.
Reviews will be posted on your choice of Amazon or Smashwords, Goodreads and Library Thing, Barnes & Noble and/or Kobo. In addition, I will post the reviews on this site, on my Tumblr site and my Pinterest Blog Review Board. My reviews also appear in the Midwest Book Review, Polk's Bookshelf, during the following month.
