Publisher's Summary

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?

An entire book about logistics!

Any additional comments?

Really only a worth a chapter or a short story not an entire book. Endless about the logistics of evacuating a planet. Some interesting elements but not enough to redeem this installment. Some characters are beginning to deteriorate in to cringe worthy stereotypes.

Ripping Yarns in space (part deux)

Any additional comments?

I loved this book as much as the first. Having just finished book 2 (and now purchased book 3) it is clear to me that this is not so much a book series as an adventure SERIAL. Each book is one complete episode of an extended story.This episode carries us to the next staging post for the Meridien survivors as they try to survive the invasion of the silver ships and our hero, Alex Racine, leads them with skill, judgement, commitment and, of course, good luck in the nick of time!I found the Meridien's salute to the fallen quite moving and my eyes misted over - soft, old fool that I am.There is more exploration of the developing relationship between the two species of humans and the added flavour of additional SADE's (Self Aware Digital Entities) as they collect more ships.A neat surprise at the end of episode 2 sets us up for episode 3 .... Holy space opera, Batman .... I am loving it !!!!

Disappointing book

I was from the last book looking forward to an engaging performance of a good story....this book did not delivery in any way. The book basically talks through a planet getting ready to flee the aliens, that's it
