Overview

“A planet-stomping space opera that bursts off the page like a tactical nuke.”
–John Birmingham, author of Weapons of Choice

The Hammer Worlds–the most brutal and oppressive interstellar government in the universe–have hijacked the Federated Worlds cruise ship Mumtaz, seizing its valuable terraforming cargo and damning its passengers to mining the moons of the prison planet known as Hell.

For Junior Lieutenant Michael Helfort and the crew aboard deep space scout vessel 387, the mission is clear: infiltrate enemy territory, locate the Mumtaz, and rescue the prisoners.

The odds are appalling, and the damage will probably be fatal, but victory is nonnegotiable–especially for Helfort, whose mother and sister were on the Mumtaz.

And Michael Helfort will be damned if he’ll let his family rot on the moons of Hell.

    A reviewer

    This was the first book by this guy that I had ever read. Just picked it because of its cover! It was a good book, only put it down twice. If you're interested in seeing the bad side of religious authoritarianism, and how stupid any totalitarian state can be, he paints a strong picture a little overblown in some aspects, but still believable. The characters were interesting, especially the protagonist. I hope he writes more with this fellow in them -- he has some depth and color. All in all it was good enough that I went here to B&N to see if he had written any more but I guess none yet.

    in the future, naval means space

    I happened to find this book on a shelf while I was deployed. Without looking at the author's biography, I could tell he had been in the military because the authentic way he told the soldier's story. Some people can do it, some can't. He seems to be able to do so. The story flowed nicely as a set up to the next one, and I can't wait to read book 2. I only wish it would have included more about the civilizations than it did. Since he had studied antropology, I would have expected it, but to no avail. But that's more of a personal preference. The book itself was well worth the read.

    If you like the Honor Harrington series....

    This is written along the same lines as Weber's Honor Harrington series (of which I am huge fan). Similar mix of well crafted character personalities and military sci-fi hardware. I look forward to reading the rest of the series!
