Overview

The Olympium of Bacchus 12 by William Speir

The year is 2614 – 206 years after Earth was destroyed in a natural cataclysm and the United Earth Planets Confederation (UEPC) became humanity’s new home. Spread across cluster of 8 star systems, the 22 inhabited planets of the UEPC thrived and were at peace for more than 200 years… until they came. In an unprovoked attack, alien invaders wipe out the UEPC’s battle fleet and all major cities on 21 planets. Hidden between two great nebulas on the edge of UEPC space, only Bacchus 12 is spared from destruction. The population of Bacchus 12, along with the survivors rescued from the other UEPC planets, must work together to defend humanity and deny the aliens the prize that they desire most – the mineral Olympium, which exists on Bacchus 12.

Reviewed by Melanie Moon for Readers' Favorite The Olympium of Bacchus 12 by William Speir is an engrossing sci fi tale set two hundred years after the destruction of Earth. The new UEPC - United Earth Planet Confederation - explored and eventually colonized twenty-two planets in numerous star systems. During the colonization, humans eliminated sports and arts careers, focusing mainly on occupations deemed productive and supportive to their new worlds and mythos. This new system appeared to be functioning flawlessly until a devastating attack caused the UEPC to not only rethink some of their accepted practices, but also unite to defend the surviving population from an unknown enemy. The Olympium of Bacchus 12 by William Speir is an enthralling novel with well-drawn characters. From the Administrator, Rick Douglas, to the director of the Advanced Weapons Division, Allan O’Connor, the cast is believable with great character growth throughout. One of my favorite examples of that was with Bret and Cindy, the Administrator’s children. Whereas they were a tad frustrating in the beginning, they grew into much more by the end. I also thoroughly enjoyed the realization that even with the advancements they had made when developing this new structure, they had to adopt many past practices from Earth. The obstinacy and ruthlessness of some characters added to the controversy and suspense of the novel, keeping me turning pages. With amazing space battles, an intriguing plot, and interesting dialogue, The Olympium of Bacchus 12 by William Speir was a pleasurable and refreshing read. I will be looking for more titles from this fantastic author.
