A superb military science fiction adventure, in a fascinating universe
I loved Nbaro. I loved her crew. I loved their ship, the Athens, and I loved every page of this book. Miles has done something extraordinary here, fusing space adventure and war-time camaraderie with gritty, day-to-day detail in a way that makes the future feel like history in the best way possible
