Publisher Description

Ben Bova’s extraordinary Moonbase Saga continues with a breathtaking near-future adventure rich in character and incident. Seven years after the indomitable Doug Stavenger has realized his cherished dream of establishing a colony on the inhospitable lunar surface, Moonbase is a thriving community, a marvel of scientific achievement created and supported by nanotechnology: virus-sized machines that can build, cure, and destroy. But nanotechnology has been declared illegal by the home planet’s leaders, and a powerful despot is determined to lay claim to Stavenger’s peaceful city—or obliterate it, if necessary. The people of Moonbase, a colony with no arms or military, must now defend themselves from earthborn aggression with the only weapon at their disposal: the astonishing technology that sustains their endangered home.

    " Bova cannot write a female character to save his life! They were all two-dimensional and their entire being centered around the male characters. "

    " The sequel to Moonbase, this is a fast paced thriller. It is a tale of power seeking, greed, betrayal, revenge, and fanaticism. These horrors are balanced by resourcefulness, a love of freedom, and self reliance. "

    " The second in the series, it kept me listening and interested for a long while. I couldn't wait for the book to end. But, alas, it did. The book contains a mix of megalomania and sci fi. Some, is almost believable. "
