Overview

Berserkers are ancient, legendary machines of death that annihilated their makers. They destroy all life wherever they find it.
The Empress of the Eight Worlds has been assassinated, and Prince Harivarman, an unwilling exile, knows he will be next. On the Templar Radiant he discovers a deactivated berserker — an operable one and perhaps even the code that controls the berserkers.
Dare he unleash berserkers on his political enemy?

Berserker Throne is set in the same world as Saberhagen’s shortstory ‘Some Events At The Templar Radiant.’ The story appears in the collection Berserker Wars.

Editorial Reviews

GoodReads - Robin Juhl
Twists of fate that twist about -- while trying to survive berserkers? Complex and thoughtful. And a frighteningly accurate assessment of mankind.
GoodReads - Void Ion iXaarii
Gripping story, superb plot twists and very original ideas. Great storytelling style with multiple angles and first person perspectives.
Amazon - D.B. Killings Danabbit
The novel is sort of a cross between a political thriller and space opera. … The writing here is very well done; Saberhagen keeps the story tight and flowing, with few distractions, and as a result the book is actually something of a quick read. . . . This one would make a great movie.

All in all, a very fun entry in the series.
Amazon - A Solipso
Berserker Throne is a typically good Saberhagen novel. You don't need to read any forerunners in the series. The focus is on the story at hand. The setting is imaginative. . . . The political intrigue is intricate and interesting. You feel compassion for unjustly maligned characters. The action is exciting and credible, and it is not overdone. Surprising twists and turns are plentiful, but believable.

There is no sex, there is no foul language, but there is adult reading.
Amazon Review - A atdotcom
Just re-read this classic after many years - It is still awesome! Love the Berserker Machines! Great story, great characters and great enemies - Saberhagen does not disappoint here!
Why were these never made into a movie?
