Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The American and Roman interstellar empires are still at war in Meluch's rousing far-future SF novel, set in a universe slightly altered from that of its predecessor, The Myriad (2005). Capt. John Farragut and the intrepid crew of the starship USS Merrimack take on the Romans with the skill, flair and foul-mouthed witticisms one would expect from space-faring sailors and marines, escaping one trap after another as they seek a hidden space station. When they find the station, they're shocked to learn it's been ravaged by the Hive, voracious bug-eyed monsters who'd be right at home on a 1930s pulp magazine cover: they eat anything alive, fly faster than light and are heading straight for human-colonized space. America and Rome must make peace to face this nearly unstoppable threat. Meluch has tightened up her prose and fleshed out her characters, and the parallel-universe twist renders this a perfectly good starting point. This is grand old-fashioned space opera, so toss your disbelief out the nearest airlock and dive in. (Jan.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    exciting military space opera

    The Roman Empire was never destroyed it just went underground waiting for the right time to emerge. That time came when FTL ships were built and the planet of Palatine because the home world of the New Roman Empire. Even though it has a better military and more hardware, Earth has the slingshot technology that allows ships to travel vast distances between space stations without entering Roman territory. --- Now Rome is working on a catapult technology the mission of the USS Merrimack and USS Monitor is to find the space stations and destroy them. Captain Farragut of the USS Merrimack has run into a Roman convoy in a part of space where they shouldn¿t be and he hopes to follow them to the space station where he believes one of the catapults is being built. It is a trap that the Romans have set up using technology from a surprising source in the hopes of capturing the Merrimack. The captain evades the trap but it turns out the common enemy of both, the Hive, an insectoid sentient intelligence will devour the two civilizations in less than a decade unless humanity works together. --- R.M. Meluch writes military space opera that is so exciting that fans will red this heart thumping action-packed novel in one sitting. Emphasis is more on action than characters but that doesn¿t take away from the interest Wolf Star generates in the readers as the big picture is more important than individuals who are made into stereotypes to fulfill a certain role. It will be interesting to see future books in this series when former enemies work together to destroy a common enemy. --- Harriet Klausner
