The mining ship El Cavador is far out from Earth, in the deeps of the Kuiper Belt, beyond Pluto. Other mining ships, and the families that live on them, are few and far between this far out. So when El Cavador's telescopes pick up a fast-moving object coming in-system, it's hard to know what to make of it. It's massive and moving at a significant fraction of the speed of light. El Cavador has other problems. Their systems are old and failing. The family is getting too big for the ship. There are claim-jumping corporate ships bringing Asteroid Belt tactics to the Kuiper Belt. Worrying about a distant object that might or might not be an alien ship seems not important. They're wrong. It's the most important thing that has happened to the human race in a million years. The first Formic War is about to begin.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Review by Dan | 2/5/2014

    " OSC is back. After a disppointing read in Ender in Exile I thoroughly enjoyed this prequel. Great characters, great science fiction, a definite page turner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Review by Randy | 1/4/2014

    " This story is really good. It has a great flow and is lots of fun. I would have easily given it 5 stars except for one thing: it ended at a pretty random spot in the story, and (spoiler alert) it doesn't cover the entire First Formic War. Other than that, it's really good. "

    " This prequel to my favorite series was as good as I had hoped. I just wish I didn't have to always wait for the next book. Patience isn't a strength of mine. :) "
