Overview

Admiral Jenetta Carver, in Region One for just the second time since becoming Commander of the Second Fleet, receives a message that the scout-destroyer Yenisei, on routine patrol, is overdue. The ship's last report ended with a statement that they were attempting to overtake several small ships spotted on their DeTect monitors.

Weeks later, the Yenisei is found. Technological advances have made Space Command the most powerful military force in the known galaxy, but although sheathed with Dakinium and believed to be almost impervious to weapons fire, the Yenisei's hull is riddled with holes and the crew is dead. The ship's computer log contains images of three attacking vessels with a configuration never before seen in GA space. It appears that a new enemy has emerged, one with weapons superior to anything Space Command has.

    This story and the host of characters rates a 4 stars in my book

    This story and the host of characters rates a 4 stars in my book....
    The Carver sisters are proving to be extraordinarily gifted in thinking outside the box when the spam hits the fan.... It's almost as if they don't even know there IS a box of that it ever existed at all!! The pace and stories are excellent and the pantheon of character are large, and diverse an allow for many possible subplots that add depth and spice to the situations the Carvers find themselves in. I have enjoyed watching the growth of the characters, especially Jenetta as she keeps suffering from the the fruits of her own success. her sisters Christa and Eliza (who are clones of Jenetta...) seem to not be suffering the same fate but are also showing themselves to be highly capable too. although there have been critics that these stories are a barely disguised version of the Honor Harrington series of books, I think they stand up pretty well. While some similarities are inevitable given the nature of the books and the general subject matter, the fact that she is military, gifted in tactics, rewarded by many for her actions in similar ways to H.H. and that she has a 2 non-human companion who seem to understand her, the stories are unique and the protagonists different from the Honor Harrington universe in that they tend to be non-human and unlike Honor Harrington, she has generally hated the promotions that have taken her further and further from any chance to command a ship of her own and has even contemplated more than once resigning if she is forced to the very highest position: Admiral of the Fleet. I think her "sisters" will fare better career wise in the sense that they haven't been victims of their own success as much as Jenette has been a victim of her own. I am huge fan of the David Weber/Honor Harrington Universe but I have enjoyed these books very much. I accept the fact that given the genre, there will be some potential overlap and accept the similarities rather than trying to find fault and wasting time comparing and contrasting. I just read and enjoy them for what they are.

    This is one of the best in the series. I've like the last couple more due to the technology: darkonium, trans warp, and now "da bomb". The characters, as always, are interesting and seem true to life and their own personalities. Still waiting for the Raiders to get theirs. I cannot decide if I want Jennetta to retire or not. I see good plots either way.

    outstanding read

    Before reading this series, I read most of the reviews. Overall AGU received a favorable review, so I decided to give it a read. I was so involved after the first chapter, I couldn't put it down. I normally read books at a leisurely pace but I read the first book in a day. I have read every book in this series and I cant wait for the next book... One review said the author must have used a thesaurus while writing this book. after 20 years in the Navy, I can tell you that Carver sounded just like every senior officer I ever met. excellent read.
