"Never again attempt to develop this kind of technology."
It is with these words that an unknown alien attacker destroys the Earth cities of Tehran, Sydney and Beijing. Fifty million people die... and nothing is ever the same again.
Some call them Demons, some call them Aliens, but to Chinese Naval Captain Melissa Liao they are the enemy. She is given command of one of three great warships built to fight the "demons", the TFR Beijing.
Her task is simple. Find who attacked Earth and why... then stop them.

This is a very exciting story that kept me up several nights until I finished it. The characters and confrontation situations are realistic. My rating of four stars would be five except that the story contained unnecessary sprinklings of foul language.
You got to be kidding me.
I love hard core space war Si-Fi.
When an author creates a good story with believable science and characters everything comes together.
But this book has neither. Also, as a veteran of both the Marine Corps and Air Force, I have a hard time believing the military aspect of this. Yes, I understand that at times people have been promoted above more senior peers — just ask General Eisenhower. It also happened to me once.
But believing putting one in command of the top-of-the-line ships is hard to believe. And her conduct with other officers is ridicules.
I did read more in this series. I just had to see where it was going. But I just couldn’t complete it.
I enjoyed this book.
