Overview

In the evolution of every sentient race, there is a turning point when the species achieves transcendence through technology.

The warlike Sh’daar are determined that this monumental milestone will never be achieved by the creatures known as human.

On the far side of known human space, the Marines are under siege, battling the relentless servant races of the Sh'daar aggressor. With a task force stripped to the bone and the Terran Confederation of States racked by dissent, rogue Admiral Alexander Koenig must make the momentous decision that will seal his fate and the fate of humankind. A strong defensive posture is futile, so Koenig will seize the initiative and turn the gargantuan Star Carrier America toward the unknown. For the element of surprise is the only hope of stalling the Sh'daar assault on Earth's solar system—and the war for humankind's survival must be taken directly to the enemy.

    A solid space combat, but a bit copy-and-paste

    It's a solid space combat book, but it's like there is a lot of copy-and-paste from the first book. The aliens are still unique, but reading the same description of a weapon firing over-and-over gets boring. In some parts, only the first sentence of a paragraph actually contributed anything meaningful, and the rest was copy-paste from the first book.

    Highly recommended for hard-core, techie scifi readers

    While this series falls into the category of military science fiction, the book reads as engaginly as space opera. The technical detail integrated into the story line satisfies even the most hardcore techie expectation. The constant switch from macro to micro storyline continues to wet one's appetite for what's next as each scene transfers to the next with cliff-hanger. This is high-tech, military sci-fi, space opera at its most engaging. Can hardly wait for volume three.

    Good author, good series, probably good book

    Enjoyed the first book. Fully intend to buy this one.




    *edit: Was a little bit miffed as the website seemed to only have the nookbook version, and I'm violently against proprietary e-book formats. If it doesn't work on any reader, I don't want it :p But it was just that the website decided to lock me into the nookbook section on its own. Grr...
