Publisher's Summary

On her last cruise, HMS Vanguard - the most powerful battleship in the Royal Navy - barely survived her encounter with a deadly new enemy. Now, with her commanding officer accused of everything from mutiny to dereliction of duty and her crew under a cloud, the Royal Navy doesn't quite know what to do with her.
But there's still a war on. And Vanguard must return to the front lines.
Assigned to a task force heading to assist humanity's alien allies, Vanguard and her crew find themselves caught in a deadly alien trap. Can they survive to turn the tables on their enigmatic foe? Or will their next encounter with the new enemies be their last?

Spading up the same turf over, and over, and over

I've never been in the military, but I have to wonder, does EVERY officer spend EVERY waking moment, and weigh EVERY decision in terms of how it will affect his or her career; and ponder EVERY situation in the context of their public school or academy experience like the officers in this (and the previous book in the series) seem to? It becomes tiresome after a while.

The storyline is interestingly enough, but the repetition makes it unlikely I'm going to sign up for any more books in the series.

A Return to What Made this Series Great

As the eighth in a series (if you haven't read the earlier ones you should obviously not start here) the question is: Has the series lost its Oommphh -- or should it continue? So I write this for those of you who have gotten this far, and would like an answer.

First, this book feels like a return to the first two installments which I enjoyed greatly. (if you did not read the original Ark Royal, do so!) More of the nuts and bolts of the ship, the people and the fleet actions. A couple of fine running battles as well. The narration, as always, is great. While there is no ultimate resolution (as befits a series) it did feel just a little like the setup for the next volume. But the expansion of known character and the introduction of new technologies was fun. I am again looking forward to the next book !
