The saga of the Rêveur continues in this second novel in the Silver Ships series.
The surviving Méridiens have returned to Confederation space, aided by their recently discovered cousins, the New Terrans. They expect a celebration after their 71-year absence. Instead, they're shocked to find the silver ships have destroyed half the Confederation.
The Méridiens are fleeing in advance of the horde of alien ships. But Alex Racine and his crew didn't come this far to run away from humanity's enemy. They intend to hunt the silver ships. But, to succeed, they need help. Renée de Guirnon, the leader of the Rêveur's Méridiens, reveals a sordid secret of Méridien society: Citizens who defy their House, for any reason, are stripped of their rights, declared "Independents", and imprisoned on the planet Libre. But the Independents aren't everyone's pariahs, especially if you're Alex Racine and you're looking for allies against the silver ships. An entire colony of independent, free-thinking radicals offers just the sort of people Alex wants on his side, so an alliance is struck. Soon the enemy ships will swarm off the planet Bellamonde, and the race begins for Alex and the Librans. The planet must be evacuated and the military force readied before the silver ships attack. Alex knows a battle is coming, but will they have enough time to prepare?

I only made it about a quarter into this book and had enough. No action. All they do is plan and share their feelings and hug. It was so freaking cheesy, even more so than the first.
The socialist agenda was right there on top in this book too. The implied theme was freedom. Yet he held up his socialist utopia as the way to achieve this freedom. You cannot be free and socialist. Liberty is anathema to socialism.
You have a bunch of sissies and pansies from two different cultures trying to fight a war. And they suck at it. This book is even more boring than the first. It is a book about people planning to build stuff to make fighters (which is just freaking stupid). The military aspects were written by someone who obviously has never served in a military and has no freaking clue regarding tactics and strategy.Did I mention there is no action. Lots of feelings. Don't waste you credits or time.
