5 of 5 stars
This was one of the first sci-fi books I read as a kid. I've re-read it many times since then (over the last 20 years) and it always sets my hair on end.
This is more of an "epic" climax than the other berserker books in the series. It has what feels to be an ultimate conclusion that will stay with you for years after reading the book.

The Good Prince Lancelot! Great Space Tale!

Berserkers: an armada of war machines left over from a long-ago intersellar war. Their mission: To exterminate all life.

Berserker Man: A person who is unusual

What I enjoyed was Michel's own expansion as an individual. Wearing Lancelot made him strong but not invincible.

The space battles are few but interesting.

I see now what has drawn me towards his (Saberhagen’s) fast-paced writing.

Berserker Man: Over a century after the Beserkers had suffered an overwhelming defeat, humans have become complacent. But the killer machines have repaired and rebuilt themselves, and this time may succeed in eradicating humanity from the galaxy-unless they can be stopped by a child who is half man and half machine.

Marked it as to-read.
Science fiction rarely gets better than this as we imagine what it's like to be alone among the stars
