Publisher's Summary

The Human Federation of Worlds thought they were alone in the galaxy. But now an alien spacecraft has appeared over one of their distant mining operations. The frightened miners immediately call for help to deal with this worrisome first contact situation.
Admiral Streth is sent to implement talks with the aliens and to find out what they want. The aliens inform the admiral that they are called Hocklyns and are from a large multi-world trading federation. In truth, they come from an empire that is expanding through the galaxy and conquering world after world for slaves, and they have set their sights on the human worlds as their next conquest.

Enjoyable

I really liked this Book 2 in the series.

My reason for giving it 4 stars instead of 5 was the narration. The narrator was rushing through the script as though he was running for a bus, which really spoilt it. If he could possibly slow it a bit and give people time to enjoy the storyline, my star rating will increase.
