Wisely, the novel opens with a brief history of the Alliance: ‘The Centauri Rim crisis quickly escalated following the defeat of Commander Mordecai of the Rising Sun and her band of revolutionaries. Fearing the area would become a haven for more pirates, corsairs, arms smugglers, Separatists, Unionist rebels, and Carthago revolutionaries it was only a matter of time before firm action would be taken. The first three weeks of the Alliance invasion saw significant territorial gains, but few military engagements. Each advance saw the rebels fade into the protection of the Rim, a vast area where an entire civilsation can hide from the gaze of authority. All of that changed the day Knighthawk Squadron made a stunning discovery, one that would change the course of the conflict once and for all.’
And with that background for this continuing series for those who are new to Thomas’ popular novels, the entry into this realm allows appreciation of the fine use of AI, alternate realities and virtual worlds, and parallels to contemporary world events that make this well written novel fascinating. A better passageway into science fiction than the myriad books of this nature would be difficult to imagine. Thomas’ writing makes it all seem credible! Grady Harp, April 19
At the beginning of each chapter, the author gives us a background and viewpoint of different historical events that have happened that help set the stage for what is going on in this book. Being the tenth in a series, it had the potential to fall flat and become redundant. The overall arc of the book however, is still going strong within the series and the events were easy to immerse myself within and get lost in the adventure of the story. Fantastic series!

His mixture of well rounded characters, and fast paced set piece action make him a riveting read from page one.
If you like good solid sci-fi, with a strong military angle, then this series is a must.
