The pirate forces of Warlord Verrikoth have invaded the star system of Seylonique and move to attack the holdings of First Principles. Tamara Samair and her people race to defend the outer system against the attack, throwing everything they have into the fray. With little and questionable support from the government and the absence of the Seylonique Navy's greatest asset, the battlecruiser Leytonstone, Tamara Samair and the people of First Principles are forced to fight alone.
A Warlord Nemesis is approaching, but you can't keep a good engineer down.

Writing is always good in the series and consistent but we have a major battle and then cliffhanger and its getting a little old. Samair is a great protagonist and the Argos Council forces arrayed against her and the classic clash of self-interest versus external threat makes the series interesting but there is very little new tech (wow - we've redesigned a ship) and the bad guys have a lot of ships -- the large alien ship is a good intro but I don't want to wait three cliffhangers to see some action (the all powerful aliens think of humans as vermin -- original). Loved the first three books except the endings of all three. Read the first three -- this is pretty much SOSO w/aliens
Book is alright. Would be nice if the good guys ever won...like ever. I'm not sure why I keep reading this series, must be the hope that at some point the good guys will actually prevail. Right now the best you can hope for is the bad guys decide to only destroy or kill some of your people/infrastructure because no one who isn't a pirate is going to win any significant battle that would be crazy. If you are alright with reading about a character who builds a bunch of crap, gets said crap destroyed, rebuilds more crap, gets more crap destroyed so forth and so on for however long this series goes then this is the series for you.
Another great installment in Samair's continuing adventures after her long sleep...
