Publisher's Summary

Christopher G. Nuttall’s novel of human fear and survival, set in the thrilling world of his Angel in the Whirlwind series.

A year after the Commonwealth won the war with the Theocracy, the interstellar cruise liner Supreme is on its maiden voyage, carrying a host of aristocrats thrilled to be sharing in a wondrous adventure among the stars. The passengers include the owner and his daughters, Angela and Nancy. Growing up with all the luxuries in the world, neither sister has ever known true struggle, but that all changes when a collision with a pirate ship leaves the cruiser powerless and becalmed in hyperspace. And they’re not alone.

Now, the mysterious force that’s living on this floating graveyard is coming for Supreme’s crew and passengers. As madness starts to tear at their minds, they must fight to survive in a strange alien realm.

And there’s no way out...

FILLER JUNK

Would you try another book from Christopher G. Nuttall and/or Jennifer Jelsema?

Only because most of the previous books have been pretty good, unlike this one

What could Christopher G. Nuttall have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Make it a stand alone book or new series. This seemed like a mix of ideas tossed into a book.

Would you be willing to try another one of Jennifer Jelsema’s performances?

I really can't say because the book was so off series.

Any additional comments?

Shortly after the book starts there is a warning that basically this book does not belong in the series or at the very least is so far out of the time line that it is crazy.
There are brief mentions of the war the series is/was about.
I'm asking for a refund. Maybe the book would have been OK if I had not expected it to be logically next in the series, this is probably should have been book 55, not 5.

I couldn't finish it. Was simply too boring. Sorry for the bad review. Sleep inducing.

Good story, annoying narrator.

This narrator has trouble with hard consonants. Here are a few examples: Didn't becomes dint, rotten is ra-enn, couldn't is coont, important is imporant. Thank goodness for Kindle where you can read the book in Standard English.

Awful

I don't like horror stories, and this is a horror story.

Boring beginning, boring middle, boring climax and depressing end.

I suppose if you like horror and stories where everyone dies, you might think differently but I expected a space adventure so...

Titanic Meets Aliens and Walking Dead

What disappointed you about The Hyperspace Trap?

I usually enjoy all of the Nuttall novels. Not this one. Improbable storyline. Poor ending. Not my cup of tea...

Would you ever listen to anything by Christopher G. Nuttall again?

Nuttall's other novels are exceptional. I would not judge his story telling skills based on this poor example.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Started out OK and seemed initially promising but that dissolved as the book went on.

Star Trek has already solved every problem

If only the characters had watched the old Star Trek shows, mentioned in the book, solutions to their problems would have been more ready to hand.

The over-plotted set-up:
* Maiden voyage of an over-designed luxury liner full of snobby titled folks. The Corporation's owner and family are on board.
* Arranged marriage between Corporation's daughter and a wealthy family. She is not pleased.
* Handsome body-shopped lowly steward falls in love with her perfect face and body.
* Some members of the defeated Theocracy come on board.
* A serial killer is brought on for transport
* Trapped in a weird not-space, not hyperspace place, ship broke.
* Famous little sister is possessed.
* People start seeing things and hearing voices.

How many Star Trek episodes are combined here?

This is so much better than the Angel in the Whirlwind Kat books, but still has problems. Girl's arguments with her fiance are weak and brainless. Steward loves her for her looks. Nancy's situation is illogical and dumb. Serial killer plot point fizzles. But, note that this still gets 4 stars because it is interesting and exciting, and has aroused our curiosity. There's bound to be a sequel because several things are left unresolved, and well, when has Nuttall written a standalone book?

The narration is super annoying at first. You know the arguments of "mounTain" versus "mou^en"? Many people pronounce the word with a glottal stop for the middle T. This lady doesn't even have that. Didn't becomes dint, hadn't becomes hant, wouldn't is woont, and important is impor-ant. She puts the accent on the wrong syllable a couple times, to wit, reFORM as opposed re-form, meaning to shape again. Can't tell if one person's name is Belkin or Falcon. Someone on the bridge is named Title? Can't tell if they wear wrist coms or wrist cons (as in console?). Her voices are okay except for Captain Paul. She tries to imbue him with the gravitas of a mature, calm military leader, but he ends up sounding bored, tired and drugged. But if you listen through the annoyance, you get used to it, mostly.

I'm still going to hope for a sequel because, despite all my gripes, I am interested to see what happens next!

A slow start and a good story

This book started out slow , with all the background setup.
Once the stage was set and the trap was set, it flowed well and was hard to stop reading.
Nice layup for a new series.
Makes you wonder where it will go
