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.

    " Modern Space Opera. Not bad but not E. E. Smith either. Too much realism cholesterol, but acceptable as a diversion on airplane flights "

    " A solid follow up to Douglas's first book. I really enjoyed the additional character development, and building contact with the various alien species. "

    " I really enjoyed this book, Ian Douglas really drew me in with the second book in the Star Carrier Series. The creativity that Mr. Douglas uses in creating alien races, and advanced technology is what really catches my interest about this series. A transcended alien race commanding other advanced races to annihilate humanity, the Sh'daar. Humanity, evolving through genetic experimentation and Nanotechnological innovation must take the fight to the enemy. This is a great read, I really like the explanations Mr. Douglas throws in about the technology, it makes this a thinking man's Sci-Fi thriller. "
