Nine years of tranquility came to an abrupt end when a Méridien starship entered the Hellébore system, sounding a dire warning for Alex Racine, the Haraken president. Unwanted visitors had arrived again. But this time, they're not alien; they're human.
Claiming to have followed the course of a colony ship launched a millennium ago when Earth wrestled with resource wars and climate change, the mission commander, Antonio García, requests a meeting with the planet's leaders. The Earthers profess a kinship with all humans, and their great desire is to have Méridien join their United Earth (UE).
Alex Racine journeys to Méridien to investigate and uncover the Earthers' intentions. In the Haraken world, SADEs (self-aware digital entities) have been freed from their boxes aboard the Méridien-built starships. The mobile SADEs are powerful players in Alex's strategies, inventing ingenious methods to investigate the Earthers and their ship.
Complicating matters, the Méridien leadership is in turmoil. The Council Leader insists her people ignore the Earthers, but this path has costs. As tensions escalate, García sends a request for support to his superiors back on Earth, lest his discovery of the rich, Méridien worlds, boasting unbelievable advanced technology, slip through his grasp. A UE battleshiop heeds the call, escalating the pressure for action.
Join the journey as the Harakens and Méridiens work together to protect their planets, and their way of life, from the newest invaders.

The story was very good. The main con is that there was too much about what Alex and Renee were doing together. Got tired of her always "curling up" next to him or in his lap. It's a space adventure! Enough with the cheesy romance.
I'll still get the next one because I want to know what happens, but I skip through the mushy stuff.
Another great story. This reminds me of 2 sayings. "Let sleeping dogs lie." and "You mess with the bull's tail, you'll end up with his horns." The action and adventure continue. I'm having a hard time waiting for book 5, "Sol", to be released.
Entertaining, Intriguing, Addictive
I can't compare it to lesser books. It's uniqueness and writing style put it in a league of its own.
Excellent narration; great diction and understanding. Draws the reader into the story.
What else: The Silver Ships continues
S.H. Jucha continues his escellent Silver Ship series with another superior story filled with details that expand on the first 3 books without missing a beat. I wasn't sure at first, if I should go back and relisten to the Book3. But that wasn't needed, as the author fills in details to refresh your memory. You can't help but look forward to the next chapter and the next, until sadly the book is over. I can't wait for the next book in the series! Tremendous narration by Grover Gardner just adds to the enjoyment.
Wonderful book in the tradition of Asimov and Clarke.
I suspect youngsters that like only blood and guts may not be ready for the debth in this fine series. Great character development and wonderful story line. I like the heroes in these stories and I love the 'lift' each book brings!!
