Publisher's Summary

For over six years, the Lost Fleets have been trapped in the Triangulum Galaxy. Every day has been filled full of danger as the galaxy conquering Simulins search relentlessly for them.
With the arrival of the Distant Horizon, a daring plan is made. A message drone will be sent back home to give them warning of the deadly danger the Lost Fleets are facing. A danger that will soon boil over into the home galaxy as well.
In the heart of a massive star cluster, Admiral Jeremy Strong learns the Simulins' greatest secret. A secret that is so dangerous it could mean the end of all civilized life.
Back home Admiral Race Tolsen waits for a Simulin attack. An attack that the politicians in the Human Federation of Worlds don't believe will ever come. But Race knows better, all the evidence points to an imminent invasion. An invasion he doesn't have the forces to stop. He will need a miracle, but miracles sometimes are hard to come by.

Big ideas continue

Another entertaining addition to the ongoing story with fantastic reading, and fine writing. The battles were exciting as well as the sense of building, improving, and character lives continued in the backdrop of the dangers.

Usual gripe, the wait to use the human-AIs as the last resort remains, but by this many books in the series I should just shut up and accept that's the way it is going to be. It might be a military sci-fi genre thing, its about human lives lost as the price of war, the use of fighters instead of drones.

I am curious if any more human-AIs will ever be made. In Alien Contact, 6 were mentioned, but the other 4 were never heard of, so I presumed never made, but were in planning. Now centuries later, isn't it about time to add to the effective population of 2 of the human-AIs, especially since more alien AIs, who themselves admitted they are inferior, are increasing their populations. Oh and here might be a twist, a Careth-AI.

Love the expansive ideas, as much as I gripe about AIs, Mr. Weil continues to mix in concepts that make his stories different than the usual stock and trade space fleet sagas, orbital habitats in the earlier series to escalating with megastructures here as well as touch on theories of hyperspace travel and dark matter. Its a geek's pleasure to read.

Looking forward to the next book.
