But the humans have developed a trick of their own. They've cracked the Berserkers' basic codes and know what their battle plans are. Both sides are betting everything they have. For one of them, it will be the beginning of the end.

"[A] battle royal to decide Earth's fate is in prospect. Plenty of well orchestrated maneuvers and action." (Kirkus Reviews)
If you like repetative, vague, "blow-by-blow" descriptions of poorly formulated space battles, you'll love this addition to the Berserker Saga. Although there are several promising and interwoven human stories they are never fully developed and seen to be allowed to expire from neglect once some minimum word count was reached.
Instead of focusing on the human dramas like most of the Berserker books this trys to simulate the space battles of StarWars and StarTrek... and totally fails. Two starship fleets that can bearly see each other lobbing nukes back and forth is not exciting reading. Sorry but a can't recommend this book...
"Berserker: Beginning" and "Berserker Man" ar much better.
Two pages of transparent plot smeared over a mountain of senseless description. A thinly disguised WWII documentary reworked as science fiction. A long long tiring monotonic listen.
