Description

24 October 2114: the day that shocked the world. 

Young diplomat Cory Wilson narrowly escapes death in the assassination of President Sirkonen. No one claims responsibility but there is no doubt that the attack is extraterrestrial. 

Cory was meant to start work as a representative to Gamra, the alien organisation that governs the FTL transport network, but now his new job may well be scrapped in anger. 

Worse, as Earth uses military force to stop any extraterrestrials coming or leaving, as 200,000 extraterrestrial humans are trapped on Earth, as the largest army in the galaxy prepares to free them by force, only Cory has the experience, language skills and contacts to solve the crime. 

But he's broke, out of a job and a long way from Earth.

Customer Reviews

Intricate, Fast Paced, and Intelligently Written

I select 10-15 books a month to review, and normally i don't get past the first 2 chapters, before scumming to poor writing.. This was a refreshing change of pace.. Intelligently written, great character development, with a intricate plot arc, and great action sequences.. I am surprised the movie rights have not been acquired as i could see this as a feature.. Loved it, loved it, Take the time to read it, you will be glad you did

One of the best stories I have read in a while

Good character development, not too detailed yet enough to bring the story to life. The story of a young untested 'delegate', thrown into the deep end of the political pool. Working to solve the mystery of who killed the President and at the same time averting war between worlds.

Promising, but difficult to fully enjoy

I liked Ambassador 1. It had good pacing, an interesting milieau, and an entertaining plot. It was the sort of way read you want for a little escapist entertainment.

It was far from great, though. I struggled throughout with the characters, which were one dimensional and too often were simply unbelievable. In particular, the protagonist went stumbling from one bad situation to the next, somehow surviving on dumb luck and the help of his apparent enemies. He exhibits none of the expertise, connections or political savvy that I would expect of someone in his position. In addition, the characterization struck me as more suited to a stereotyped feminine character, and I found that I had to constantly remind myself that he was, in fact, a male-gendered character.

Overall, I hope to see more from this author, but I also hope to see growth in her all as a storyteller.
