Editorial Reviews

Roland Green
Saberhagen's murderous, robotic Berserkers return for another shot at the human Solarians. . . . the action is nonstop. The Berserker Saga continues to draw and deserve readers . . .
A. Reviewer
An addition to Saberhagen's long-standing series about the berserkers smart machines whose programming directs them to roam the galaxy seeking out and destroying organic life--and especially ``badlife,'' those beings who attempt to resist extermination. . . .The Solarians (Earth) have hacked a window into the berserker programming codes; in turn, the berserkers have developed androids convincing enough to pass for the human-created variety. Plenty of well-orchestrated maneuvers and action . . .
