Publisher Description

WOULD THEY DESTROY EARTH IN ORDER TO SAVE ITConquered by the Jao twenty years ago, the Earth is shackled under alien tyranny-and threatened by the even more dangerous Ekhat, who are sending a genocidal extermination fleet to the solar system. Humanity's only chance rests with an unusual pair of allies: a young Jao prince, newly arrived to Terra to assume his duties, and a young human woman brought up amongst the Jao occupiers.But both are under pressure from the opposing forces-a cruel Jao viceroy on one side, determined to drown all opposition in blood; a reckless human resistance on the other, perfectly prepared to shed it. Added to the mix is the fact that only by adopting some portions of human technology and using human sepoy troops can the haughty Jao hope to defeat the oncoming Ekhat attack-and then only by fighting the battle within the Sun itself.At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).

Hard getting into, but a good read.

This book was hard to get into. Lots of aliens with complicated names. There is a glossary of the characters which helped somewhat. I found after reading several chapters, that jumping to the appendixes helped understanding a lot of what was going on.

Owes a lot to Harry Turtledove

And his Lizard series. Still a good read.
