There he was in his sailboat in the middle of the Atlantic, all alone and loving it. Well, there was a US Navy carrier group on his southern horizon, but he was US Navy himself, so he didn't mind. Then came the UFOs, hurtling in from the Outer Black to overfly the carriers at Mach 17. Their impossible aeronautics were bad enough - but then they started shooting at each other. And at the Navy. With nukes. Little ones at first, but winding up with a 500 megatonner at 90 miles that fried every piece of electronics within sight. Richard Ashton thought he was just a ringside observer to these now over-the-horizon events. Until the crippled alien lifeboat came drifting down and homed in on his sailboat; suddenly he had his hands full of an unconscious, critially wounded alien warrior - who just happened to be a gorgeous female, too. And that was when it began to get really interesting...… (mer)

One of my favorites of Weber's, and a comfortable friend now. ( )

Pretty much a comfort read at this point. I know, I've got weird ideas of comfort, but this is very well structured, easy to follow, and has some lovely ideas throughout. ( )

A great, quick, humans vs. aliens scifi novel, with the added bonus that it is not part of a series! Think of Battlestar Galactica type ships (the original, not the reboot!) fighting against human hating aliens, flying around the galaxy via dimension-skipping drives that give the effect of FTL. When the aliens, desperate for a victory, head off to Earth at incredible speeds jumping more dimensions than ever before, there's only one small human fleet that can stop them. One way or another, this ends up with Marines fighting aliens in a plot that reminded me of Terminator. Decent characters and like all Weber military sci-fi, great action and meticulous military detail. ( )

This was an early work by Weber, and it definitely shows. Good action scenes combined with over-the-top wish fulfillment. Not recommended. ( )
  BruceCoulson | Jan 28, 2014 |
It was pretty good, although a bit predictable. Anyone who likes the Honor series will like this, too. The same ideas of upstanding military characters, evil villains & lots of heroism. A fun read, but not as memorable as the Honor series, IMO. ( )
