Overview

From Joshua Dalzelle, author of the bestselling "Omega Force" series, comes an all new vision of humanity's future.

In the 25th century humans have conquered space. The advent of faster-than-light travel has opened up hundreds of habitable planets for colonization, and humans have exploited the virtually limitless space and resources for hundreds of years with impunity.

So complacent have they become with the overabundance that armed conflict is a thing of the past, and their machines of war are obsolete and decrepit. What would happen if they were suddenly threatened by a terrifying new enemy? Would humanity fold and surrender, or would they return to their evolutionary roots and meet force with force? One ship--and one captain--will soon be faced with this very choice.

Against incredible odds, Jackson Wolfe is determined to save humanity–and in the process, might end up saving himself.

Finally, someone that writes more like old school sci-fi from Heinlein, Herbert, or Bova. Engrossing book that takes you on a great ride. The understanding of command and how a ship is supposed to function makes me wonder if the author spent time in the Navy. Realistically portrayed without being boring or going into to much detail. Excellent read. Kept me up too late for two nights in a row. The only negative I can think of is that the second book isn't out yet. Anyone complaining about the book being too long should go read a comic book. As in any story, the slower parts are necessary to build on events that happen later and to give you an understanding of things beyond the scope of the characters. And he does a nice job of tying it back into how it affects the situations that develop in the book. This is good storytelling. If you want action from page one to the end, get a graphic novel. If you want a real tech science story with good characters, a great plot line, and action, then by this book!

Wow... if you are former Navy and enjoy hard sci-fi and action, this book is for you. Loved it. Can not wait for Book 2.

The story moves fast and is generally interesting, but the characters are pretty thin and there are several instances where problems are solved with a Deus ex machina approach. For example, the Captain knows some secrets about the ship that only are handed down Captain to Captain and not in any ship's manual - not very realistic. A good editor would have pointed those issues out. Also, the book's editor might want to take a refresher course in English so he/she will correct usage errors such as when the author inserts "to try and" instead of the correct "to try to". I found it grating. Still, I may buy the next book in the series as the story line is interesting despite the flaws in the storytelling.

One of the most well written ever. Will keep you locked in. Do not start this book unless you have time to be completely captivated. Cannot wait for book 2.

Hard to put despite some scenes that seemed to drag on. I'm as excited about the next book of this trilogy as i am the next lost fleet. Please keep going.

A decent, quick book for a weekend read. However I could not help but see the many parallels between this book and David Weber's "On Basilisk Station". Even so I am curious as to where this story is going.
