"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'--Publisher's description.… (mere)

REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS

Summary:
_________________________________________________
Genre:
Science Fiction
Space Opera
Fleet Action
Militaria

Why this book:
I really liked Book 1. Have to give 2 a try.
_________________________________________________

Plot Holes/Out of Character:
I thought he had sought Angela out and been turned away by her at some point in the last book maybe in a flashback. I could be wrong...but it feels like he did.

Think there is a hole in the continuity. Right after the second Battle of Arcturus, there is a mention of the client races of the Sh’daar. They mention the Jivad Rallam who I don't think humans knew about yet. Though in fairness, the Agletsch could have mentioned them.

Favorite Scene:
Admiral Koenig acting to save the H’rulka city in the gas giant atmosphere.

Favorite Concept:
I love well done sci-fi military space opera: fighter planes, battleships, destroyers, submarines.

Hmm Moments:
I get that space is big. But, considering how tightly the Terrans watch space, how did that H’rulka ship manage to sneak into Saturn.

The Pan Europeans sending somebody of higher rank seems hinky. Considering the political climate on Earth when the task force warped out.

Meh / PFFT Moments:
I really hope this prim crap was over after he saved all of them at the end of the last book. I get it’s used to build background drama, but c’mon. Collins should’ve been smacked down at some point. Putting the onus on Gray isn’t kosher after the previous book. If this goes on forever, it will impact my enjoyment of future volumes.
_________________________________________________
Pacing:
Very well paced.

Last Page Sound:
Good story. Good space opera.

Things I’d Like to See:
A map of Star Carrier space.

Author Assessment:
I’m definitely in for Part 3.

This review will be for the complete first three book arc of this series. This novel reminded me a lot of the Jack Campbell Lost Fleet series as there was lots of space battles with ship to ship action. In this series, humans are fighting multiple alien species and not other human groups and for the most part are behind them technologically but the author makes up for this in the tenaciousness of the human fighting spirit. The author also does a pretty good job in fleshing out the multiple main characters and well as building a nice universe to tell the tale in.

I really enjoyed this who series and look forward to reading more in the followup series. 4 stars for a fun read. Recommended for any fan of space navy military sci-fi. ( )

This would be four stars if he would just cut down on the repetition. I don't need to be told how space flight works every 40 pages. Especially when it's the 2nd book in the series and the same thing happened in book one. ( )
  Vasher | Mar 23, 2015 |
Hardcore military science fiction. The book continues to explore themes of the merger of man and machine. This story centers on the politics of war.
Are defensive wars ever winnable? When is mutiny the correct course of action? Why are the aliens who are attacking earth afraid of man and machine merging? These are the themes explored in part two of this trilogy. ( )
