Overview

Her story began in the national bestsellers A Soldier’s Duty and An Officer’s Duty. Now Ia is captain and commander at the helm of Hellfire, where she is finally free to chart the course for the fulfillment of her destiny…

As captain, Ia must now assemble a crew that can rise to the ultimate challenge of saving the galaxy. The hardest part will be getting them to believe her, to trust in her prophecies. If they don’t, her own crew will end up being the biggest obstacle in her race against time.

The Salik are breaking through the Blockade, plunging the known galaxy into war. Ia cannot stop it this time, nor does she want to. This is the terrible price she has seen all along—that some must pay with their lives so that others might live. Now only time itself can prove whether each member of her crew is merely a soldier or truly one of Ia’s Damned.

    Continued Success in Series

    This third in the series continues the excellent story of Ia. Her continuing voyage to protect the galaxy and all life there steps up the pace as she is given a special ship and crew, at the cost of her privacy and keeping her on the edge of disaster. This story contains more action than the previous, but still with a philosophical bent that keeps the reader thinking. I did like this book, and found that reading it was not as a chore but an experience. It seems that Jean Johnson has hit her stride with this series and continues to raise pertinent questions to think about, and to think how much courage it takes to chart your own course with a lot of people, both high and low, trying to interfer. I do recoomend the whole series, but Hellfire is more action oriented than the set up novels that preceded it. This does what good science fiction should do, cause you to think as well as question yourself and enjoy a story.

    Great story.

    Johnson's continuing story in it's third installment does not quite meet the standard of the first two, but I'm still anxious to read what happens next.

    I like the first two books but think the see future hook is getting dull. A lot of the military battles are being jumped over now.

    Excellent read! Good addition to the series. Some action but at times the story slows. After so long a wait I'm glad to have this but feel that I have another long wait for the next book.  =(
