Publisher 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.

Clever and distinct!

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.

Excessive

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 ?
