From Library Journal
As the Society of Humanity and the Unity Party wage a war in the far reaches of space, soldiers on both sides of the battle realize the bitter truth that underlies a conflict based on profit and power. Moscoe's (Lost Days, Ace, 1998) fast-paced military sf adventure presents a grim look at the reality of war and the cost to those who risk their lives for the causes of others. A good choice for most sf collections.

“Moscoe delivers the goods.”—Steve Perry, New York Times bestselling author
“A lot of fun…a refreshing change from the standard good guy/bad guy divisions in military SF.”—Jack McDevitt, National Bestselling Author
“Space scientists talking about science fiction often disparage the way space battles are depicted. Moscoe won’t be a target for any of those attacks: he’s got it down…I finished the novel wanting more.”—LRC Publications On-Line Reviews
“Good escapist fare.”—Locus

What I really like is the excitement the story generates. Not just the battles--even the quiet conversations have an aura of barely contained enthusiasm. At no point in reading this did I want to back off and do something else for a while.
Best of all was the real sense of optimism with regard to the future. Our pitiful human race, our weak and inconclusive strivings, our despair--none of that is who we really are. Our future can be magnificent if that is our fervent desire, if we struggle onward toward the best goal of all!
