Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sequel to Eagle Against the Stars. With Earth recently emerged from alien domination, a space-naval officer uncovers a human-alien conspiracy to involve Earth is a deadly war for galactic empire that would destroy Earth’s fragile democracy. New York Times best-seller (with David Weber) and action-adventure science fiction stalwart Steve White returns with a rousing tale of adventure and space warfare in the near future.

A near-future Earth has shaken off the devastating colonization by alien Lokaran invaders and totalitarian rule by the alien’s puppets, the Earth First party.  But now Earth is flung into galactic intrigue and war. The Lokaron empire teeters on the edge of a fratricidal meltdown and  a cabal of ancient enemies hope to use Earth as a proxy to destroy the empire and rule over a new Galactic Dark Age. 

Now Captain Andrew Roark, the son of heroes of the rebellion and an officer trained in Lokaran space warfare tactics, joins with a highly capable Lokar who opposes the empire but wishes to see it transformed rather than destroyed. Together they must uncover a conspiracy to control Earth, and then obtain the secret key to defeating it.  War for galactic control looms, and freedom for Earth—so recently escaped from under the boot-heel of one oppressor—is once again in the balance.

Review:

"About 50 years after a disastrous first contact with the alien Lokaron, Earth has become a battleground of take-no-prisoners interstellar trade and politics among various human and alien factions. When Capt. Andrew Roark investigates the mysterious death of his boss, a respected Earth admiral, he discovers that the shapeshifting Kappainu have infiltrated Earth and plan to start an interstellar war for their own ends. Joined by Adm. Arnstein's bereaved daughter, Rachel, and Lokaron double (or possibly triple) agent Reislon'Sygnath, Roark must take on the shapeshifter ninth column for the good of the galaxy. Set in the same universe as White's 2000 novel Eagle Against the Stars, this slam-bang space intrigue adventure does suffer at times from egregious recaps and excessive exposition, but as a criticism of the simplistic xenophobia, isolationism, and imperialism common in human-uber-alles space opera as well as real life, it is distinctly refreshing."
