    The author pulls together all the elements needed to kick off a rapid page-turning series. Enjoy!

    A credible application of real-world physics to carrier based spacecraft warfare as Navy pilots fight for the survival of the human race against an enigmatic implacable alien foe. The battle rages a lttle too close to home as the enemy attacks the sol system with the intent of exterminating man. The novel re-introduces the concept of the technologic singularity and man's proximity to it as the reason man must die. A worthwile, well-thought, and entertaining read.
  • Nice story

    Overall, an excellent trilogy. My only complaint is the author gets redundant in explaining some of the technology.
