An enemy might just have to become an ally . . . in order to save humankind

The United States of North America is now engaged in a civil war with the Earth Confederation, which wants to yield to the demands of the alien Sh'daar, limit human technology, and become a part of the Sh'daar Galactic Collective. USNA President Koenig believes that surrendering to the Sh'daar will ultimately doom humankind.

But when highly advanced, seemingly godlike aliens appear through an artificial wormhole in the Omega Centauri Cluster 16,000 light years from Earth, President Koenig is faced with a tremendous choice: continue fighting the Sh'daar . . . or ally with them against the newcomers in a final war that will settle the fate of more than one universe.

Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The series is starting to slip... I have been a fan of this series for some time but the last two books have been disappointing. The shift to (mostly) political intrigue from the space opera style, and the profound reduction of "interesting" technology or alien interactions, make the books boring and predictable. Mr. Douglas-Keith needs to find his mojo again and get back to more true action and adventure. I don't mind some backstory and the connection of the political drivers to the space interactions, but more than half this story fails to truly link with the core action and plot issue. It seems he's trying to build a long term annuity by never finishing the story so we buy the next book. Not sure I will...
