Publisher's Summary

The rebels have won a great victory, shattering the Empire's grip on Sector 117. Starships are mutinying, the Empire's power and authority are crumbling, and the rebels are making their way towards Earth. Their victory seems inevitable.

But, as news of the rebellion finally reaches Earth, the Thousand Families start preparing for all-out war. The Empire has a war leader, a colossal advantage in firepower, and the determination to do whatever it takes to destroy the rebels before they can win.

As both sides rush towards a titanic confrontation, they know that whoever wins will inherit the Empire. But, with humanity's mighty civilization threatening to collapse, they may only inherit a desert called peace.

Not Mr. Nuttall's finest work.

Compared to the first book volume 2 seemed rushed. It jumped too quickly and tried to tell the story from the view of too many people. The story became hard to follow quickly and is the first book written by Mr. Nuttall that I was happy for it just to end. The narrator was once again wonderful.

The inevitable march

It was all a little bit too easy. The story was really just a march forward. goal 1 goal 2 etc.

Some interesting bits with characters.

A good follow up

This was a fast paced book that seemingly introduces a new twist and plot. We get fulfillment of victory and anticipation of new enemies and challenges.

Can't wait for the next

Kinda nice!

I enjoyed this one a lot more than the first book in the series. My only nagging complaint is the short space battles. They could use a lot more fleshing out!
