Publisher Description

AN EPIC INTERSTELLAR TALE OF WAR FROM A MASTER OF SCIENCE FICTION.
One more tour on the red. Maybe my last.
They made their presence on Earth known thirteen years ago.
Providing technology and scientific insights far beyond what mankind was capable of. They became indispensable advisors and promised even more gifts that we just couldn't pass up. We called them Gurus.
It took them a while to drop the other shoe. You can see why, looking back.
It was a very big shoe, completely slathered in crap.
They had been hounded by mortal enemies from sun to sun, planet to planet, and were now stretched thin -- and they needed our help.
And so our first bill came due. Skyrines like me were volunteered to pay the price. As always.
These enemies were already inside our solar system and were moving to establish a beachhead, but not on Earth.
On Mars.

Great Book. Excellent Premise

Nobody does hard military SciFi like Greg Bear. Thrilling read and hard to put down. Great premise and I hope he writes a sequel to complete the promise of this idea.

Almost great

The writing is first rate, the characters draw you in and make you root for them, the plot is clever and there is plenty of action and suspense. Bear describes imaginary places so vividly you feel like you've been there. Couldn't put it down. But then, in the middle of the story, the book suddenly ends. I kept looking for the next chapter. Still a good read, but a little disappointing.

Good, Better, Best.

The problem with reading Mr Bear’s books, and I’ve been reading them since he started writing them, is, they make it difficult to read anyone else. Mr Bear has such a vivid imagination and an eloquent style, other works pale,.... no seriously, take an old Veteran’s word.
