Overview

When you don’t know which side to trust, go rogue.



Matt Lowell is the hottest new recruit in the Universal Union’s select group of pilots. Their job—control the supremely powerful biochemical robotic avatars known as Mecha. Now, the Prime of Universal Union herself has offered him an unprecedented opportunity: return to Earth to train a new elite force for a covert mission that’s imperative to the future of the Union.



When he and his team embark on their mission—on a border world that may be a target for the anarchical Corsairs—Matt finds that everything is not as it seems. The world is home to a dark secret that underlies the very foundation of the Union itself, and suddenly Matt doesn’t know which side he and his mighty Mecha should be fighting for—or against.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Ace Mecha recruit Matt Lowell trains an elite force of Mecha soldiers for a covert mission, only to find that he no longer knows which side he is on. Military action, high-tech sf, and strong characters work together in this sequel to Mecha Corps.
Kirkus Reviews
In style and violence, a hybrid of the movies Transformers and Independence Day: the sequel to Mecha Corps (2011). Capt. Matt Lowell is the interstellar Union's finest Mecha Corps warrior, not least because of his total recall--he calls it his Perfect Record--and his ability to merge his Mecha's sensory interface, effectively his consciousness, with those of other Mecha pilots. The Mecha are huge, massively powerful, morphing robotic machines developed by Dr. Salvatore Roth to combat the Union's enemy, the Corsairs. Previously, Matt joined the Mecha Corps in order to hunt down and kill Rayder, the genetically engineered HuMax superman who murdered his father. Matt's latest mission is to destroy a secret lab on a remote planet where more HuMax are being created. But, to his horrified astonishment, he discovers that the Union is behind both the lab and the HuMax, and the mission involves exterminating essentially helpless beings. Unable to stomach the pointless slaughter, he turns rogue and flees with his Mecha to the Corsairs, a vastly more disparate and advanced group than he had been led to believe. And this is just the first of a series of surprises that will cause Matt to question everything he has been told. The narrative moves at a thousand miles an hour, with just enough depth to the backdrop to avoid obvious pitfalls, and makes worthy efforts at character development, though the plotting's as far-fetched as you might expect, with Matt able to summon up still another battle-winning superpower whenever he needs it. Slam-bang action with never a dull moment: imagine a 21st century Lensman series, if anybody still remembers E.E. "Doc" Smith, without the latter's lofty black-and-white moral tone and awful prose.
