The BookViral Review:

A novel that hits the ground running and continues throughout with a blistering pace and most importantly a solid entertaining story Fulcrum: The Globur Incursion Book 1 is an unrelenting no excuses Space Fleet Science Fiction Thriller and a superb start to Rebbitt’s expansive series.

A big novel in terms of its many rich characters and the size of its vision Rebbitt has the kind of scientific imagination that few authors can match. At its core Fulcrum is classic science fiction in its wrapping but very modern in the way it explores the complicated consequences of combat engagement and the often devastating choices that have to be made in the heat of battle. 

Seamlessly integrating futuristic hi-tech Rebbitt is quick to build a kinetic atmosphere which explores future militarism along with its underpinning values system which in turn adds an important degree of moral and intellectual depth. On this level, Fulcrum is one of those rare Science Fiction novels that finds an equitable balance between ideas, characters, and plot. This is intrinsic to Rebbitt’s brand of narrative which reaches far beyond spectacle to give us a frantic science fiction twister that mimics the very best in the genre without battering the sense and sensibilities of the reader.

Refreshingly free of plot jarring hiccups Fulcrum rapidly develops into a broad spanning narrative that alternates between fleet engagements with the Globur and the evolving mystery surrounding hero of the Markus Nebula John Forest. An augmented fighter group commander his story is involving, fast-paced and interlaced with action and plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader glued to the plot. The tone is gritty with Rebbitt allowing a touch of dry humour that prevents it from getting overwhelmingly dark whilst each crucial moment in the battle with the Globur is encapsulated in a chapter of its own as we follow the trajectory of Rear Admiral Zenke and Task Force 28H towards the exhilarating Battle of Rubicon. 

It’s to Rebbitt’s credit that he considers the emotional impact on Fulcrum’s key characters. A level of care that extends to its supporting cast like Flag Captain Gordon Flint, Grand Admiral Jones, Marine company commander Keiko Imagi and the last commander of Outpost 37- alpha Lieutenant Suleman Ling, to add narrative depth and an overriding sense of authenticity. As is most often the case with Science Fiction, it’s the journey that matters more than the destination and it’s certainly true of Rebbitt’s debut novel.

Creating a powerful sense of presence invoked by vivid and speculative descriptions of far-flung future technology and deep space combat Fulcrum engages our imagination to the fullest. A Golden Quill read it is unreservedly recommended!

How Science Fiction Authors Are Shaping Our Future

As fantastical as science fiction seems, there is often something familiar about the incredible concepts dreamt up by its writers. In fact, not only familiar at times but eerily accurate about future advances. Is this some kind of scientific prophesy? Is there something sinister going on?
