An exciting SF book, a combination of a political novel and a military space novel from a Navy veteran. This new sub-series has a very unusual twist, as an offshoot of “The Lost Fleet” series. The Lost Fleet books were primarily told from the side of the good guys (more or less) of “The Alliance” battling against the various connected star systems of “The Syndicate”. The Syndicate is kind of a Soviet-type dictatorship where everyone is suspicious of everyone else. The Alliance is more of an American-style bureaucracy with an inspirational and creative military leader, Black Jack Geary. The current book flips the series in another direction. The Alliance has won the war and Campbell now shifts the story to the point of view of two former Syndicate leaders, Artur Drakon and Gwen Iceni, on the planet Midway. They are trying to survive assassination attempts while leading a revolt against the ISS – basically similar to the old Russian Secret Service (the KGB) – in order to bring some semblance of order to Midway.

Both the political tension and the battle descriptions are exciting and the two main characters are especially well-developed and sympathetic. It is obvious that Campbell is having fun exploring his cultures from the side of the former enemies.
