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

There is a milestone in the evolution of every sentient race, a Tech Singularity Event, when the species achieves transcendence through its technological advances. Now the creatures known as humans are near this momentous turning point.

But an armed threat is approaching from deepest space, determined to prevent humankind from crossing over that boundary - by total annihilation if necessary.

To the Sh'daar, the driving technologies of transcendent change are anathema and must be obliterated from the universe - along with those who would employ them. As their great warships destroy everything in their path en route to the Sol system, the human Confederation government falls into dangerous disarray. There is but one hope, and it rests with a rogue Navy Admiral, commander of the kilometer-long star carrier America, as he leads his courageous fighters deep into enemy space towards humankind's greatest conflict - and quite possibly its last.

    " I find this genre very entertaining and this book/series delivers. Very entertaining but when the humans win yet again against overwhelming odds gets stale. Where are all the other ships if the senate is so paranoid about defending earth? Still though, a very entertaining read. "

    " It's quite literally an aircraft carrier in space, which was my favorite part of Battlestar Galactica. So of course I'm going to consider this solid sci-fi, and I always appreciate when authors don't magic away the details of interstellar flight - the author has obviously read up on the Alcubierre Drive. "

    " I'm a fan of Ian Douglas, so was prepared to love this. I almost loved it. The characters are just a tad shallow, although overall well developed. The total environment he creates has moments of great detail and depth, and other moments of sketchiness. That said, I read it cover to cover and thoroughly enjoyed it. Assuming it is, in fact, a series ("Book One"), then I'll read the rest as they come out. "

    " This story was great. Now I have to find the next two in the trilogy. "
