Even better than the first book this one jumps right into the action and continues the action right up to the very end. I was very pleased with the pacing of this novel. It managed to continue to examine how ships of the future will operate but also added even more wonderfully narrated battles. The excitement continued right up to the very last word that kept me on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen. I am ready for the next one.
I was especially pleased with the return of Mr. Wortham-Biggs. I also enjoyed a discussion of the motivation of the Krag that took place about half way through, it really went a long way in exploring the depth of the universe. One thing that I noted in passing was the authors take on religion in space, many sci-fi series seem to think that once out in space
everyone will be non-religious or part of some universal belief system, it's a refreshing take that the different faiths will still be
out there and really goes a long way to adding even more depth to the motivation of characters.
We get a glimpse of the political situation in the Union near the end and I really hope that is explored more in the next book to really get a complete look at all the different motivations of the characters.
Would highly recommend this to fans of military sci-fi or really any sci-fi fans at all.
The good news is that the Pfelung are no longer the only well drawn alien race; the enemy Krag get their share of attention in this book, as does another, more mysterious race. The authors paint these various races as species similar to animals we know on Earth, but far more advanced. The key is that their behavior stems from evolutionary circumstances that are quite different from human/primate circumstances. This is a bit obvious but it works well.
The action and the space tactics are also quite well done.
The bad news is that the authors are still writing for that audience that loves their explanations of everything. I have no doubt that there is such an audience; sadly, I am not in it and tend to skip past most of these sections. I don't really care how the engines work on a spaceship any more than I care how the engine works in my car, or how the pictures appear on my TV, or --- well, you get the picture. In the same vein, there are far too many occasions when a fact is drawn out seemingly just to demonstrate that Max and the authors know it. All this results in dialogue that is too often explanatory rather than realistic. Fix that and you've got a five star series.
