"Douglas knows his SF." Publishers Weekly --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
In the evolution of every sentient race, there is a turning point when the species achieves transcendence through technology.
The warlike Sh’daar are determined that this monumental milestone will never be achieved by the creatures known as human.
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.See all Editorial Reviews
Good over arching story line... I really like this universe... Great space warfare segments relying on physics and not magic! Lost Fleet is another excellent series... :)Published 13 days ago by Donohue Family
This is a great series. The space science is not too far fictional. I can see it happening some day.Published 23 days ago by Kevin Ophoff
Like in book #1 in the series, there was too much minute "author to reader" technical explanation in this book. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Glenn E. Smith
