Publisher's Summary

Secrets both ancient and new.
Powers great and greater -
with Terra caught in the middle.

Humanity's first colony is a project neither the Duchy of Terra nor the A!Tol Imperium can allow to fail. The planet Hope in the Alpha Centauri system has been lavished with resources and attention - but when an unknown alien force attacks the system, all of that is in danger.

An ancient alien artifact is the apparent target of the attack, an artifact older than known galactic civilization. Suddenly, the backwater colony of a second-rate power is the gathering point for a confrontation of the galaxy's greatest powers.

Duchess Annette Bond might be pregnant. She might be five light years away. She might have another galactic power on her doorstep demanding she surrender their rebels who've settled on Earth.

But she speaks for both Terra and the Imperium - and the galaxy will listen.

It is fine...

This whole series is really just "fine". It will never grab you and have to sitting on the edge of your seat. It certainly is not a book where you just can't put it down. But the story is solid and I have heard plenty worse. It was good enough to get me to buy all three so far. Usually I am rushing through it because there are other books I want to listen to a lot more.

A book to grab you. Third time is the charm.

This novel is well written and action packed. It is actions packed with character you can relate to as beleivable. This is a military space opera that could happen if one of natural laws were by passed. Fun reading and easy to get you looking forward to the next in the series. Sorry I think this could be the last in the trilogy. I am a Glynn Stewart fan.

Terra is safe for now!<br />

I just really enjoy the escape from the everyday chaos that is modern life SiFi offers. This is a good story and will continue to follow it. If space travel, intergalactic bad guys ,intergalactic good guys and the human spirt is your thing then get Book one and get about it. You want be disappointed.

A fascinating space opera that keeps you wanting more

A fascinating space opera that keeps you wanting more. The characters are very well rounded and dear to all that read this series. The worlds and space equally well done. At least to satisfy the normal SCI-FI reader. The narrator is excellent and I would highly recommend this series to anyone who loves SCI-FI. Enjoy
