内容紹介

It's no easy tour of duty for Lt. Nova Whiteside when her interstellar transport is taken by pirates and she is then tagged for termination. Could it have something to do with the mysterious alien they were transporting? Having gone from merely MIA to technically AWOL, any chance of escape leaves her no choice but to rely on Sethran Kada, a former lover, for help.

Unfortunately, she realizes that they are now on opposite sides of an escalating war between the Commonwealth Union of Planets and an increasingly dangerous rebel organization.

In trying to find who is threatening her life, they discover a plot to destroy a distant planet - a world inhabited by creatures that are the key to Nova's survival - and a conspiracy that threatens the stability of the Union Commonwealth.

Can Nova go beyond her strict military training to cooperate with people whom she is sworn to destroy?

"The characterizations are solid, the writing is crisp and fluid, and all of the questions posed within the story are answered. Reher is a great storyteller, and you know they know this from the confidence exhibited in the book."

"What a fascinating imagination Chris Reher has! ... descriptions of all the other worldly beings was a fun mind exercise along with rather exciting adventures. Read it! It is worth the time!"

5つ星のうち 5.0 Chris Reher - a great storyteller 2012/12/25
投稿者 MsTee - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
Though The Catalyst's timeline precedes that of 'Only Human,' I read the latter first. Even so, it was not hard for me to follow the story. In The Catalyst, we see Nova, wet behind the ears from her birth into the military scene. She's as inflexible, stubborn, and by-the-book as a true 'greenie,' and it takes a rough patch in her career, and the handsome Seth (an old flame of Nova's) to show her that the occasional bending of the rules isn't so bad after all.

Reher does not waste time or drag their feet. From the beginning, we're thrown into action and adventure, watching as Nova battles with doubts concerning those she cares about, and also those she should trust within her work organization. The story moves along fast, but there are times when it slows and we get to enjoy and appreciate the fascinating world and its people Reher has created. The underlying cause for which Nova, Seth, and their comrades fight is very positive, and I greatly enjoyed that Reher pushes their characters to make certain sacrifices to attempt to achieve this goal.

My only gripe:
I loved reading Seth and Nova's relationship, and I felt that the author could have expanded a bit more on them at the end of the book. Of course, not everyone will agree with me on this one.

The characterizations are solid, the writing is crisp and fluid, and all of the questions posed within the story are answered. Reher is a great storyteller, and you know they know this from the confidence exhibited in the book. I enjoyed reading this immensely and fully believe that others will, too.

5つ星のうち 3.0 Space romance 2013/5/26
投稿者 smithster - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
I thought this and the other two in the Nova Whiteside series, Only Human and Rebel Alliances, were a lot of fun. Although our female protagonist is a relatively high ranking and experience military officer, she does spend quite a bit of time being rescued and oggled by brawny, gorgeous men, and having good sex too, which I appreciate :) But while the relationship between her and her male costars is central to the story, it doesn't completely sidetrack it, which I also appreciate. The story itself is frontier politics - big and powerful alliances verses terrorist separatists - and there's plenty of playing around in space ships and on strange planets with stranger scenery to keep things interesting and moving outside of the romance department. This is the Star Wars school of character development - good guys tend to be good, bad guys tend to be bad, but here and there Reher did play with these expectations in her supporting cast, which made them more interesting. Enjoyable, and I will read the next one.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Great Space Opera 2015/2/27
投稿者 Força Porto! - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
The second in Targon Tales series, this book begins with 1st Lieutenant Whiteside bitten by a squid-like alien she was supposed to be guarding, while being attacked by pirates, one of whom kidnaps her away from the other pirates. That's just the very beginning-- the action continues until the last page.

Chris Reher has written a space opera in the classic style-- character oriented, yet filled with fascinating aliens (who, with the exception of the squid-aliens, aren't all that alien), space battles, and daring escapes. There's even a bit of romance-- but it's integral to the plot.

More to the point, we can watch the protagonist grow, the junior military officer begin to question the morality of the actions she has taken while following orders from her superiors, actions heretofore not thought about because they came under the category of 'following orders'. Watching her grow into a moral adult is one of the real plusses, as is the delightedly convoluted plot. It's a pleasure read that makes you want more. Happily, Reher has written them.
5つ星のうち 4.0 A good space opera. 2017/3/28

Well written and edited. Catalyst takes off in the vein of Dune. An essential element is the life blood of the Combined Union of Planets. And as is the usual case, corruption permeates a new discovery of a source. Lt Nora Whiteside, daughter of one a well known Colonel of Air Command and Section Leader of the elite Vanguard force finds herself in the unenviable position of guarding a tank full of some liquid with a strange creature in it and running through the cargo ship that has just been boarded by pirates. All her colleagues and fellow Air Command pilots are dead and she is about to be when an old lover from her academy days, shows up and rescues her. And that is just the first Chapter!

You end up caring about the characters. After all, if they're not interesting what's to hold you to continuing with the book? Some sexual tension, but not overly done.
It might have been cool if the "alien race" in the book had some sort on perspective they could communicate. (I don't want to say anything that might spoil).
Love the character of Nova Whitestar. She's in the next book as well..."Only Human".
