Ever since the truce with the Kaxeks was signed, the aging United Earth Force battleship Walker Pierce has been patrolling the border areas. Captain Devlin Carter, grandson of the legendary warrior for whom the ship was named, and a war hero himself, had a feeling that the truce was only a cover to allow the Kaxeks time to rebuild and improve their forces to resume the war, so he was looking for evidence. The top brass thought he was only aiming to start a war, so they repeatedly called for him to return to Space Station Xena, which the captain figured was a ruse to mothball the ship and deactivate him. His XO, Lt. Jaime McWarren, an untested newbie in deep space, constantly pressed the captain to fill open personnel slots and to put into a Union port for badly needed mechanical overhaul. Unknown to the crew, she was the daughter of Rear Admiral Malcolm King, in charge of the Office of Strategic Operations, who ordered her to take over command of the ship, if the captain didn’t follow orders. This story is well-written, containing lots of action, including pirates, spies, sensor anomalies that may or may not be alien ships, questionable damage/loss of fighters and pilots, disputes over policy issues, double-dealing and even some humorous moments. How can the ship and crew handle things that constantly go wrong? When the Kaxek ships move in for an attack, can older technology and ingenuity survive against new and improved alien ships? This is an easy read; I didn’t want to put it down. I bought a copy when it was released to support the authors. I am eager to read the next book; there are a lot of things happening here that I’m certain will be fully addressed as the series continues.
When they write science fiction, I can hardly wait to read it to my father.
I think of them as a superb serial version of Galaxy’s Edge and Nicholas Sansbury Smith.
Their stories couldn’t be more different, but the writing is always exciting, unique and worth every dime it costs.
If you’re looking for wonderful sci-fi action with great characters and really cool environments then look no further than Daniel and Joshua’s works.
They have many great separate work as well, so check them out today!!
