This book, a follow up to The Dagger's Point, essentially covers the same timeline of Earth's war with the Blern. However, while the Dagger's Point was told primarily from James Trenety and his crew's perspective, this story goes primarily from the viewpoints of the politicians and generals running the war. While still a very good book and an enjoyable read, there was less action (and less of the between battle "interludes" that made DP work so well for me). It is worth mentioning that Kitson also included the leader of the Blerns as a viewpoint character, and does a brilliant job of turning an antagonist into an honorable character that is very tough to *not* like. Well done! I certainly will continue to read books in this series as long as he continues to publish them.
