Description

In the evolution of every sentient race, there is a turning point when the species achieves transcendence through technology.

The warlike Sh’daar are determined that this monumental milestone will never be achieved by the creatures known as human.

On the far side of known human space, the Marines are under siege, battling the relentless servant races of the Sh'daar aggressor. With a task force stripped to the bone and the Terran Confederation of States racked by dissent, rogue Admiral Alexander Koenig must make the momentous decision that will seal his fate and the fate of humankind. A strong defensive posture is futile, so Koenig will seize the initiative and turn the gargantuan Star Carrier America toward the unknown. For the element of surprise is the only hope of stalling the Sh'daar assault on Earth's solar system—and the war for humankind's survival must be taken directly to the enemy.

    I stopped writing reviews, mainly because "If you can't say anything nice..." but I like this take on space faring sci-fi. A unique view of space travel based on theories and concepts accepted in our current knowledge of physics. The characters and plot I find enjoyable and exciting. Buying the next one presently.

    The book overall is good . To much techno babble that prattles on with info we garnered from the first two books in the series. Maybe to feel pages ?
  • Superb!

    Thoroughly enjoyed this book. I like the technology described and how it's being utilized throughout the story. Nice descriptions and settings that really give the reader a feel for how a battle might be fought with vessels capable of near light speed.

    Like all of Ian's books, I just could not put it down. Great characters and as near realistic as great SiFi can get. Hate to have to wait for the next one of his Excellent adventures. Enjoy, Bob C.
