This book and "Antares Dawn" have got me scourering the dusty shelves of used book stores and libraries trying to find something more written by Michael McCollum! He has really piqued my interest and I'm going through withdrawl symptoms anticipating the next in the series! Highly recommended reading.

Excellent, believable hard Sci-Fi with a dash of romance and Hornblower thrown in. Loved it. Sorry he left the series hanging. I'm still waiting for the denoument.

Love this book, one of the stack I periodically re-read. If your colony is cut off from Earth by hostile aliens what lengths will you go to attempting to restore contact? High adventure with a military but not militaristic feel.

Fantastic tale. As an aerospace engineer, I really appreciate the beautiful explanations of theoretical details and space/time scales with their astronomical effects. Great adventure, romance, and suspenseful action! I highly recommend this to anyone looking for well written and highly detailed SCI-FI adventure. Five stars are well deserved by this author.

A good story, hard SF, and believable, but dated, and not 'politically correct' by current standards. Not with all the logic and plot holes in so many books nowadays. I certainty enjoyed re-reading a story I'd read years ago.

It's great that this long out of print book and its mate ANTARES DAWN are again available. An exciting, hard science adventure story set against the backdrop of interstellar war. Mr. McCollum's characters are a bit wooden sometimes, but the story moves along, the alien menace feels real, the puzzles are puzzling and the revelation at the end is a clever one, leading into the last book of the trilogy. The good news is that that book is at last available. I read ANTARES VICTORY, published by scifi-az.com, and it is a very satisfying conclusion to the series. I hope the books become more widely available because they are quite enjoyable.

Michael writes in an excitement generating fashion and is very clued up on the latest technologies involving space travel. His understanding of space warfare and micro-gravity conditions is the best I have come across in the constant evolution of science fiction writers. I will continue to read what he puts out.

Enjoyed this book. Only complaint was the story seemed a little rushed in places, like the author knew where he wanted to get to and didnt want to waste time on the way. But thats a minor complaint and it didn't detract from the overall experience. Story is set up well for the final book which I'm really looking forward to reading.
