The M ridiens are fleeing to their far colonies-and they have reason to run. Over the course of decades, they have lost hundreds of ships, billions of people, and seven Confederation colonies to an alien enemy: an advancing swarm of silver ships transported in the bowels of a gigantic, spherical vessel. Alex Racine, who once enjoyed the solitary life of an explorer-tug Captain, is now an Admiral and responsible for the lives of a quarter million Librans. Further complicating his life, Alex's Librans have made it clear they don't want to settle on his home world. They want a new home, and he must secure them one. The silver ships await Alex's makeshift flotilla at Libre, the last colony they consumed. Thus far, Alex's people have succeeded in skirmishes against the enemy's fighters. Now, though, they're preparing to attack the entire alien fleet and halt the devastation of the colonies. To the surprise and chagrin of his officers and crew alike, Alex concocts a new plan, because he believes humanity faces not one but two alien species, and one may be enslaved to the other. If so, Alex believes slaves should be liberated, not obliterated. To test Alex's theory, his people must capture a wholly intact silver ship-a feat never before accomplished. The crew remains doubtful, but their Admiral is determined to communicate with the aliens before he's forced to destroy them, and his wish is their command.… (mere)

My third read by this author and third in this series.

First up: This is one of those books that even half stars wouldn’t help me ‘place it’. It is probably more of a 3.8 than 3.5 or 4, so I round up to 4.

Two major problems encountered – the somewhat repetitious manner of the book (some is just catching people up to date with the series, some are the same things being said more than once a few paragraphs apart) plus the almost overwhelming amount of ‘stuff’ that was examined and talked about. Sure, setting up a new society and stuff, but some of it got a little too ‘who cares-ish’.

There were two ‘best parts’ sections. The first involved the fight between the silver ships and Alex’s people when they returned to Libre. The second was the first time the point of view shifted to the crab/scorpion people. Both sections were quite interesting/thrilling/exciting.

And . . . um. I suppose the only other thing that I can think of to note is that I kind of got tired of Alex. I mean, he’s happy something went correctly so he kisses his subordinate full on the mouth? To the point that she mentions, later, that he is a good kisser? What the fuck is that about? So yeah, I was kind of losing my ability to like Alex there.

Mmph. I kept trying to come up with things to put here but I can’t really think of anything else. Oh, the only other thing I could think of is that I kept mentally seeing the people from Libre as being Librarians. I’m not sure why. I don’t mean, work in a library, I mean, I saw their collective name as being Librarians. It amused me. ( )
