For years, the alien Klikiss robots have pretended to be humanity's friends, but their seeming "help" allowed them to plant an insidious Trojan Horse throughout the Earth Defense Forces. Now, in the aftermath of a devastating war, swarms of ancient robots built by the Klikiss continue their depredations on helpless worlds with stolen and heavily armed Earth battleships.

Among the humans, the Hansa's brutal Chairman struggles to crush any resistance even as King Peter breaks away to form his own new Confederation among the colonies who have declared their independence.

And meanwhile, the original, voracious Klikiss race, long thought to be extinct, has returned, intent on conquering their former worlds and willing to annihilate anyone in the way.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good continuation but left open questions There were still a few open questions for me from the earlier books that I had hoped would get answered at some point. While the plot this book puts forward is enjoyable as part of the series, I personally felt some further exposition on certain things that were touched upon by the previous series could have been further explained. As to this novel itself, I still heartily enjoyed it as part of the Saga of Seven Suns series. Action scenes were quite a sight to imagine and the characters for the most part felt alive and real with some exceptions standing out as too cookie cutter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice continuation nice addition to the story, but some of the facts of the story get forgotten and the timeline is getting smashed together and accelerated unnecessarily in order to get the story out. there are serious continuity problems that start after the 4th book in the series.
