This is a Draconian Carrier Class Mother Dragon. This ship has rotating sub-light engine “wings.” The fighters and bombers leave through the bottom of the ship were there are multiple fighter and bomber bays.

Just wanted to give y’all an update.

Book 2 in the Almek Manning series, the Starwarden is scheduled for release in June. I finished the second draft yesterday. I will spend the next month working on book three, at which point I will switch back to the Starwarden and begin the final editing process.

Sneak Peak at Book 2: The Starwarden

Part 1: The Academy

Part 2: Dalton Space Force

Part 3: The Starwarden

Also I pay tribute to Robert Heinlein again in this book. One of the ships that Almek Manning serves on is the Robert Anson Heinlein, a Fast Cruiser Carrier.

 

On another note, I am up to four reviews. I’ll post the fourth later.





Third Review

5.0 out of 5 stars An exciting read., February 2, 2012
By Carol Blackhurst (Orlando, FL USA)
This review is from: The Zochtil (Almek Manning Book 1) (Kindle Edition)

As a life-long fan of science fiction, I found “The Zochtil” to be a very entertaining. The characters are engaging and interesting. The story is a fast-paced, action-packed experience. Mr. Dalley weaves many new and intriguing sci-fi aspects into his tale. A great beginning to a sure to be thrilling series.





My Second Review

****

Great Talent

The Zochtil is the debut novel of J.A. Dalley and is a great read. From start to finish Dalley keeps you pulled into the story, wanting to know what’s coming next.
Although he credits this as a Military Sci-Fi, I believe anyone will enjoy this great book. I can’t wait to read his sequels, and maybe a prequel.





The Zochtil finally reaches Barnes and Noble

First Review

Review by: Samuel Peck on Jan. 03, 2012 : star star star star star
I loved the book. The battles in the book are full of variety, from a legal battle, to a simulated space battle, to a violent infiltration of a marine base. Each has its own intensity and stakes involved, and all are well narrated.

If a book doesn’t teach you something, either something that’s definitely true or something to consider, I personally don’t think it’s a good book. The author of this book didn’t write the book with an agenda, but slips in several things that we can learn from, or at least think about. Some of them are political. Some are about human nature, or other subjects.
