This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

The second book in the epic saga of humankind's war of transcendence

In the evolution of every sentient race, there is a turning point when the species achieves transcendence through technology.

The warlike Sh’daar are determined that this monumental milestone will never be achieved by the creatures known as human.

On the far side of known human space, the Marines are under siege, battling the relentless servant races of the Sh'daar aggressor. With a task force stripped to the bone and the Terran Confederation of States racked by dissent, rogue Admiral Alexander Koenig must make the momentous decision that will seal his fate and the fate of humankind.

A strong defensive posture is futile, so Koenig will seize the initiative and turn the gargantuan Star Carrier America toward the unknown. For the element of surprise is the only hope of stalling the Sh'daar assault on Earth's solar system—and the war for humankind's survival must be taken directly to the enemy.

Reviews

‘Douglas knows his SF’
Publishers Weekly

‘The action is full-blooded and almost non stop, yet the well-developed background is surprisingly rich and logical … As immersive as it is impressive’
Kirkus (Starred Review)

Customer Reviews

Superb

Having read The lost fleet this is different enough to warrant reading.

Not quite as focused on military tactics but equally superb.

Like lost fleet it suffers from repeating the necessary bits to keep readers who havnt read he previous books in the know.

Really good, nice to follow.

Keep up the good work.
