While the Phage is dead, the Confederation has imploded, with over half of the planets seceding. What is left of it, together with about half of the Fleet, gets contacted by yet another Alien species apparently seeking help against a mysterious enemy.
Once again, the new Federation gets involved in a conflict, with some exciting space battles including a rather great attack on the Federation’s new capital planet and Fleet headquarters. These are perhaps among the book’s better parts.
As mentioned by the author, Captain Blake, although present in the book, is not the main character and hero of this story. This role belongs to his former second in command Captain Celesta Wright who has inherited command of a squadron of destroyers. Some of the characters present in the previous trilogy, such as Admiral Marcum, secret agent Pike and his arch-politician boss who has now become the President of the new Federation.
Pure action-filled military science fiction, with an emphasis of (good) space battles but not much on context and world-building and somewhat limited dialogues. Nevertheless, the result is rather easy to read and entertaining. Just about worth stars as a result, because I did like it.
While I enjoyed the 'end of humanity' desperation of "Black Fleet Trilogy" the not so desperate challenge of the "Expansion Wars" leaves a lot more opportunity for characters to develop. There is still plenty of action, but a lot more interaction as well.
I have purchased the second book in the series and intend on giving the author a second try.
Joshua Dalzelle is a good author and he writes entertaining books. I like his quality of character development and his use of science. It makes the story more interesting for me as I get involved in the characters and learn to love or hate them.
I enjoyed this book and I look forward to the next book in the series. I rated this one at 5 stars.
