Overview

NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLING AUTHOR.

Sequel to Eagle Against the Stars. Action-adventure science fiction stalwart Steve White returns with a rousing tale of adventure and space warfare in the near future.

With Earth recently emerged from alien domination, a space-naval officer uncovers a human-alien conspiracy to involve Earth is a deadly war for galactic empire that would destroy Earth’s fragile democracy.

A near-future Earth has shaken off the devastating colonization by alien Lokaran invaders and totalitarian rule by the alien’s puppets, the Earth First party. But now Earth is flung into galactic intrigue and war. The Lokaron empire teeters on the edge of a fratricidal meltdown and a cabal of ancient enemies hope to use Earth as a proxy to destroy the empire and rule over a new Galactic Dark Age.

Now Captain Andrew Roark, the son of heroes of the rebellion and an officer trained in Lokaran space warfare tactics, joins with a highly capable Lokar who opposes the empire but wishes to see it transformed rather than destroyed. Together they must uncover a conspiracy to control Earth, and then obtain the secret key to defeating it. War for galactic control looms, and freedom for Earth—so recently escaped from under the boot-heel of one oppressor—is once again in the balance.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
About 50 years after a disastrous first contact with the alien Lokaron, Earth has become a battleground of take-no-prisoners interstellar trade and politics among various human and alien factions. When Capt. Andrew Roark investigates the mysterious death of his boss, a respected Earth admiral, he discovers that the shapeshifting Kappainu have infiltrated Earth and plan to start an interstellar war for their own ends. Joined by Adm. Arnstein’s bereaved daughter, Rachel, and Lokaron double (or possibly triple) agent Reislon’Sygnath, Roark must take on the shapeshifter ninth column for the good of the galaxy. Set in the same universe as White’s 2000 novel Eagle Against the Stars, this slam-bang space intrigue adventure does suffer at times from egregious recaps and excessive exposition, but as a criticism of the simplistic xenophobia, isolationism, and imperialism common in human-uber-alles space opera as well as real life, it is distinctly refreshing. (Nov.)
Library Journal
Having freed itself from the alien Lokaran invaders and the totalitarian Earth First Party, Earth now finds itself embroiled in galactic warfare as enemies of the collapsing Lokaran Empire seek to use the planet as a new battleground. Capt. Andrew Roark, a veteran of the rebellion, joins forces with a Lokar who seeks to transform his race into a nonimperialistic society. Together, these former enemies must prevent the return of tyranny to the galaxy. VERDICT The sequel to Eagle Against the Stars is a strong tale of military sf featuring memorable characters and fast-paced action. Fans of David Weber and David Drake will like this action-packed story of war among the stars.

    an exciting action-packed military science fiction thriller

    Five decades have passed since the alien Lokaron invasion. The earthlings responded to the annexation of the planet into the Lokaron Empire as a colony by either rebelling or becoming human quislings belonging to the Earth First party (see Eagle Against the Stars). As a result of the resistance, the mighty Lokaron Empire threatens to implode into a civil war.

    Captain Andrew Roark investigates the strange death of his superior officer Admiral Arnstein. The victim's grieving daughter Rachel, wanting justice for her father, joins him on his inquiry. They soon uncover a diabolical plan in which the alien shapeshifting Kappainu manufacture incidents leading to interstellar combat in which they will be the victors. In a strange bedfellows' way, Lokaron agent Reislon'Sygnath accompanies the humans; they seek a way to prevent the insidious shapeshifters from shifting the power in the galaxy.

    Wolf Among the Stars is an exciting action-packed military science fiction thriller. The story line is fast-paced from the moment the hero investigates the admiral's death and never slows down as a homicide inquiry turns into a save the galaxy conspiracy tale. Although there is too frequent use of passive commentary to describe the issues facing the lead trio, readers will enjoy this engaging tale while wondering whose side Reislon'Sygnath really is on.
