“This energetic mélange of tried-and-true elements—futuristic jargon, military and romantic tactics, and multiple levels of skullduggery—easily grabs the reader’s attention; more impressive is that Bara’s story holds that attention all the way to the end.”

Publishers Weekly

“A fun and engaging story…In short, IMPULSE is a winner for me… Highly Recommended.”

SFF World

“Dave Bara really knows how to tell a story and keep it moving along. He infuses the story with a sense of enthusiasm that actually makes up for some of the issues outlined above: if you’re in the mood for straight-up space adventure brain candy, IMPULSE will deliver it…[IMPULSE] hearkens back to the Golden Age of Science Fiction.”

—Fantasy Literature

“A FAR future space adventure that owes a lot to the alien princess-bonking antics of Captain Kirk…The novel’s tech is imaginative enough, and this first in the series promises some epic dust-ups as an ancient war is rekindled.”

—The Sun

“IMPULSE is an exciting space opera that fans of Star Trek will enjoy. …With plenty of suspense, drama, unique technology, and romance – this scifi adventure has it all. I thoroughly enjoyed this romp through deep space from relatable characters to the clever plot.”

SciFi Chick

“Impulse is fun, fast, and proper science fiction. Where the stakes are big, and things matter because the characters matter. I enjoyed the hell out of this. Impulse should be an impulse buy.”

—Simon Green,
NYT bestselling author of the Nightside Series

““If you liked Star Trek Into Darkness, you’ll like Dave Bara’s IMPULSE.”

— Jack Campbell,
NYT bestselling author of The Lost Fleet series

“This guy is the next Jack Campbell; it’s that good.”

— T.C. McCarthy,
author of the Subterrene War Series


“In STARBOUND, Bara manages to ramp up the depth and complexity of his world while retaining that sense of excitement, suspense, and adventure. . .STARBOUND confirms what we suspected when Impulse hit the shelves: Bara has created one of the most thought-provoking visions of the far, far future we’ve seen lately, taking the best elements of military sci-fi, space opera, and good old-fashioned adventure stories, and fashioning them into something both familiar and unique.”

B&N Sci-Fi and Fantasy Blog

“Starbound ultimately presents a deep, complex and engaging universe, but it never forgets to have some old fashioned fun once in a while. . .solidly entertaining and an engaging read. Space opera fans should most definitely give this one a look.”

Starburst Magazine


“This series has been a solid space opera in the vein of some of the genre’s classics, such as Clarke and Heinlein.”

The Verge

“Bara continues to spin a complex and well-constructed military SF series that stands proudly alongside well-decorated examples of the subgenre.”
