Overview

From the depths of Space a new foe rises to do battle with mankind: the British Space Empire is threatened by the lemming-people of Yull, ruthless enemies who attack without mercy, fear, or any concept of self preservation. At the call of their war god, the Yull have turned on the Empire, hell-bent on conquest and destruction in their rush towards the cliffs of destiny. When the Yullian army is forced to retreat at the battle of the River Tam, the disgraced Colonel Vock swears revenge on the clan of Suruk the Slayer, Isambard Smith's homicidal alien friend. Now Smith and his crew must defend the Empire and civilize the stuffing out of a horde of bloodthirsty lemming-men—which would be easy were it not for a sinister robotics company, a Ghast general with a fondness for genetic engineering, and an ancient brotherhood of Morris Dancers—who may yet hold the key to victory.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Frost's space-faring British Empire, introduced in 2009's Space Captain Smith and God Emperor of Didcot, is running out of steam. Isambard Smith and his crew are given the task of finding the elusive Vorl as the war begun in the earlier books continues to spread. Frost not only includes Smith's nemesis, the Ghast 462, but also the Ghast's new allies: the sadistic Yull, also called the Lemming Men. Frost attempts a wider range of satire with this installment, from the Obi-wanesque George Benson ("Why don't you just put it on the tab?" "Why don't I just put it on the tab, dear?") to the Disney-like Lloydland, but while there are targets galore, few of them suffer direct hits, and the plot, a reasonably straightforward story of quest and vengeance, never fully coalesces.
