Long, long ago, two alien races fought a war of extinction. All that is left of either of them are the berserkers: vast, thinking, spacefaring, killer machines whose sole purpose is to destroy all living things. For the first time in all of their history, they have met a life form that has a chance of stopping them.

In the cold reaches of space, the berserkers seize a floating laboratory full of human germ-plasm being stored for retrieval and growth in a future colonization project. The ship contains millions of human lives—but why are they not destroying them? Will the human pursuers manage to find the missing lab, defeat the berserkers, and save the nascent lives?

This is a major Berserker novel—one of Saberhagen’s finest—with one hell of a surprise up its sleeve.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The latest installment of one of the definitive military-SF sagas is likely to prove the one series fans have been waiting for…The greater length lets Saberhagen put us inside both berserker and human minds as never before. Saberhagen develops the story with his usual skillful prose, pacing, and characterization, producing a book that won’t disappoint the audience he’s amassed during his more than thirty-year career.”

    Roland Green, American science fiction and fantasy writer

  • “Saberhagen breathes life into the often-arid soil of future-war SF with intriguing characters, neat plot twists, rousing action, and no trace of the gung-ho macho posturing that marks much military science fiction. This smart, fast-moving story is edge-of-the-seat reading.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “The latest in the author’s popular berserker series features a cast of nonstereotypical characters as well as an unexpected conclusion.”

    Library Journal

    " A Berserker attacks a human planet and leaves. 300 years afterward, Berserkers attack the same planet and pursue the original Berserker attacker in mid-attack. The reason for the unusual behavior? The original Berserker is piloted by one of the Builders of the Berserkers. "
