Overview

If he survives, hell just may freeze over.

The savage Hammer Worlds are not only near invincible but almost certain to win their war to crush the Federated Worlds and control humanspace–unless the Feds can find and destroy their secret antimatter warhead facility.

Only dreadnoughts, the lone Federated ships able to withstand antimatter missile attacks, can do the job, and only Lieutenant Michael Helfort has the skill to lead them. But skill may not be enough, because Helfort is more than the newly appointed captain: He’s a hero, and this means that his own senior officers want him to fail–and that the enemy’s kingpin wants him dead.

Helfort’s early victories merely intensify everyone’s determination. No action is too low, no price too high, to bring him down–with treachery, or betrayal, or an offer he can’t refuse, even if it means selling out his own side.

    Least enjoyable of the three. Not worth buying.

    I first read the second novel and enjoyed it so much I went back to the first and bought/read it as well. Was really looking forward to the third, but it was not worth it.

    The author does not expand on the characters, which is needed for any continuing character series, and the plot is predictable and second rate
    at best.

    So to summarize, cardboard character development and simple ( about the
    level of an 11'th grader in depth ) predictable and fairly non-sensical
    plot.

    I will not be wasting any money on a fourth. Based on the trend, this storyline and character is no longer worth the coin.
