Présentation de l'éditeur

The Federation has endured for hundreds of years, but now it is dying, killed by the corruption and decadence of the Senate and the rising power of military warlords. The shipping lanes are coming apart, the colonists are revolting and outside forces are pressing against undefended borders. Now, as one warlord makes a bid for supreme power, the entire edifice is on the verge of falling apart. Two officers, bearers of a proud military tradition, may be all that stands between the Federation and total destruction.

For Admiral Marius Drake, there is no greater cause than the survival of humanity’s prized unity. For the young and ambitious Roman Garibaldi, the growing civil war offers a chance of promotion far beyond the usual boundaries. Together, they will save the Federation or die trying.

But with the Senate suspicious of any competent commanding officers, their success may condemn them to an inglorious death.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 great as usual with Nuttall 31 août 2014
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
It is one of my favorite SF authors.

I love his disillusioned and cynical view of societies and his mastering of depicting all the forces behind the immobilism of those societies. Hi brings those ideas at the galactical level and shows all the dark sides of humanity in general.

Please continue writing great books.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Nice read with a solid and well built story line. 12 septembre 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur

The historic references used to build the story become all to real when you see how politics rage out of control and how democracy gets perverted into something semi-hereditary and elitist, nepotism is rife and society stagnates trying to maintain a status quo. Whether the reference stems from the Roman Empire, the more modern European countries or the continental US, they all made and make similar mistakes because the either wrong people get elected to lead or the right people become corrupted or chained by those in the establishment that fail to step aside when their time has come and frantically try to maintain their position.

Unfortunately, one can never live in the past and societies and their government systems, like biological species, need to change to adapt to the needs of the moment (even if changing means going back to a different variation of something that has existed before, because of a current "need") or become obsolete and eventually extinct. Unfortunately humanity 's leaders never learn the lessons from the past and always believe it will be different this time.

The writer captures all these elements and weaves them into a story injected with plenty of action and adventure to avoid becoming a political history narrative, but if one reads between the lines, the lessons are there.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A 5 star book until the last 4 pages 1 août 2014
Par B. Weber - Publié sur

I must agree with most of the 5 start reviews. The book is a good read, with well developed characters, plot and action. But it all fell apart for me at the very end.

I don't want to give away the ending, so you may not want to read further. The very ending seemed highly inconsistent given what was known about the book's lead characters. This was all the more baffling after reading the author's afterword, which is his treatise on history, where he explores similar scenarios. To me there's nothing heroic in wronging others as they have wronged you -- I think the author has confused vengeance with justice. Perhaps the author intended to build this kind of tension as a prelude for Book 2. If so, he should have waited until the start that volume to explore that theme. I, however, have lost all interest in following these folks any further.

Another great book from Christopher Nuttal. I am a big fan of his books, but I found this one something special. I can't wait for the next book in the series. I setting is particularly fascinating and I can't wait to see what happens next!
