I read this book a couple of years ago and enjoyed it. I liked the set up with an abandoned Earth being colonized by somebody else. Field does that irritating thing of putting a prologue on, naming it chapter 1, and then ignoring it for the rest of the book. Once you get that bit behind you, it’s a ripping yarn.

Again, it’s the characters — Frank Carr and Etta Sanchez — that kept me going. The plot unfolds nicely and the war-fleet adds just enough tension. Can they finish their mission in time?

I just noticed that there are two more books in the series and I’ve grabbed a sample of book 2 because I want to see what happens next. Perhaps you might grab a sample of book 1 to see what happened first.
