Format: Paperback
This book, along with the series to follow, was written in such a distinctive style that my friends and I sometimes refer to clever science fiction as "starwolfish." It begins fifty thousand years into a hopelessly stalemated conflict. The hero is a Starwolf, a nearly-human genetically engineered warrior. These fighters were designed millennia ago to defend Earth and nearby worlds from the oppressive Union, a corrupt collection of trade monopolies. Armed with their wits and a terribly outnumbered fleet of intelligent warships, the Starwolves must keep the outer worlds of human civilization free from the Union's grip. They are so bound by this cause that they cannot create their own culture, art, and civilization. The hero wants to change that, and give his people a future worth all the bloodshed. Remarkably, his counterparts in the Union are not your classic 'pure evil' cliched space opera villains. They are trying to save the beleaguered human race by giving it a common enemy, uniting to destroy the Starwolves. It is a titanic struggle, and the story is told with wit and humanity. A nice break from all the 'good guy versus bad guy' space opera stories.

I first read the entire series in 1992,.. And I was taken by the lack of Dross. The story was clear cut, the concepts were clear and enjoyable, The characters were all much better than character cutouts.

The Starwolves, (A name given to them by humans) are an engineered race developed by true aliens to defend one faction of Humanity from another. The interesting parts of the story is all about how the Starwolves see themselves. One part Space Opera, two parts social commentary, and a final part a series of adventures that has me wishing the author had not stopped at four books.

I could easily see Antarctic Press or some other medium sized Comic company running with this,.. I could just as easily imagine this as an animated series,.. It's too bad that I don't have the resources becauase I think it would become a hit.

A VERY good series of the caliber of Star Trek. The ONLY Issue I had was it ending too soon.

I have read all of the series and found them to have a tempo that kept me wondering what next. Sure there were parts that were farfetched but the willing suspenssion of disblief helped. The consept of Honor to the pac and the clan is one that maney at the time of writing of the series and even today find hard to understand or follow. If you get the chance read these books and enjoy them I did.

Format: Paperback
Good Fast read, a 5 for that. Major point, after 50K years the Human race has allowed it's government to degenerate it to the point of racial extinction. The Human standpoint of provoking a war to 'stimulate' re-growth is highly questionable. The Starwolves are a bio-engineered race by a non-human superior race charged with safeguarding the Human Race and Terra. So, everybody lost Terra's location and now the SW hang around and mess with the after-Terran Union. Neither side have any real definition of their goals. Great action, no real science. This is a recent re-read and I have the series, but did NOT read it again. Somehow cheering on the "angels" and blasting the human 'trolls' is not a true winner. If I have to be a troll, I want to win and become a SW. Thanks, Harry!
