A reluctant hero must prevent war in space and on Earth in this fast-paced military science fiction thriller from the author of The Cold Between and Remnants of Trusta riviting hybrid combining the gritty, high-octane thrills of James S. A. Corey and the sociopolitical drama of Ann Leckie.

Space is full of the unknown . . . most of it ready to kill you.

When hostilities between factions threaten to explode into a shooting war on the moon of Yakutsk, the two major galactic military powers, Central Corps and PSI, send ships to defuse the situation. But when a strange artifact is discovered, events are set in motion that threaten the entire colonized galaxyincluding former Central Corps Commander Elena Shaw.

Now an engineer on a commercial shipping vessel, Elena finds herself drawn into the conflict when she picks up the artifact on Yakutskand investigation of it uncovers ties to the massive, corrupt corporation Ellis Systems, whom she's opposed before. Her safety is further compromised by her former ties to Central CorpsElena can't separate herself from her past life and her old ship, the CCSS Galileo.

Before Elena can pursue the artifact's purpose further, disaster strikes: all communication with the First Sectorincluding Earthis lost. The reason becomes apparent when news reaches Elena of a battle fleet, intent on destruction, rapidly approaching Earth. And with communications at sublight levels, there is no way to warn the planet in time.

Armed with crucial intel from a shadowy source and the strange artifact, Elena may be the only one who can stop the fleet, and Ellis, and save Earth. But for this mission there will be no second chancesand no return.

I have been enjoying this series which is science fiction but of the relationship kind rather than "hard" sci-fi. I enjoyed this too and many of the plot lines came together here into a conclusion of sorts to the build up. Sadly it seems to have fallen into the not selling enough department and the author's website seems to indicate there will be no more of the series. Which is a shame as I have enjoyed it. ( )

Elizabeth Bonesteel hits it out of the park again with the third installment of her wonderfully human military space opera series. This book starts slow, with Greg and Elena split up by the Admirality, and Elena having resigned from the corps and working as a civilian. There's a mysterious object and a planetary civil war brewing, and an old nemesis has been assigned to the Galileo. All of this takes a little while to set up. However, by the end the conflicts that have been building since book one have spun out to encompass the entire galaxy. Bonesteel continues to spend a lot of time on the relationships between characters to great affect. The consequences of the events of this novel may impact the whole galaxy, but they're most sharply felt at the human level, by characters that Bonesteel has painstakingly built up before us over the course of the series.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for great character work - in space - and am eagerly looking forward to the next book.
