An enemy might just have to become an ally . . . in order to save humankind
The United States of North America is now engaged in a civil war with the Earth Confederation, which wants to yield to the demands of the alien Sh'daar, limit human technology, and become a part of the Sh'daar Galactic Collective. USNA President Koenig believes that surrendering to the Sh'daar will ultimately doom humankind.
But when highly advanced, seemingly godlike aliens appear through an artificial wormhole in the Omega Centauri Cluster 16,000 light years from Earth, President Koenig is faced with a tremendous choice: continue fighting the Sh'daar . . . or ally with them against the newcomers in a final war that will settle the fate of more than one universe.
As a fan of writers like Ian Fleming, Issac Asimov, and yes... Huxley, Wells, and similar Science Fiction authors, Ian Douglas has really "hit the target". Dark Matter, like all quality SF works includes the key element of "future possibilities, while not shirking social commentary of humanity. A delightful read! Though I purchased the Star Carrier set; was skeptical that the excitement could be maintained... instead I was sad to see it end; (so much) that I immediately began "researching" for the possibility of another or "next" in this exciting series... Bravo, Keith! Great work!
Thanks! DJ Mason
I'm a hard core syfi reader for years. I do enjoy the books by Douglas. I feel that his Star Carrier series is fun and interesting, love the hi-tech space battles. Keep them coming!
The author keeps reciting the same techno babble over and over through every book. Which really wears on a reader. This whole series I've had to skip through it all sadly. Which in essence makes these books half as long . Use a appendix or something please.
