Before George Lucas's Death Star, before Star Trek's Doomsday Machine, came the Berserkers, intelligent, space-faring killing machines whose sole purpose is to destroy all life. The Berserkers have developed a new trick: Berserker units that can pass for human-created androids. They're gambling on the advantage this gives them and massing for an all-out attack on human-held space.

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.
