Publisher's Summary

An epic interstellar tale of war from master of science fiction.
One more tour on the red.Maybe my last.
They made their presence on Earth known 13 years ago.
Providing technology and scientific insights far beyond what mankind was capable of. They became indispensable advisors and promised even more gifts that we just couldn't pass up. We called them Gurus.
It took them a while to drop the other shoe. You can see why, looking back.
It was a very big shoe, completely slathered in crap.
They had been hounded by mortal enemies from sun to sun, planet to planet, and were now stretched thin - and they needed our help.
And so our first bill came due. Skyrines like me were volunteered to pay the price. As always.
These enemies were already inside our solar system and were moving to establish a beachhead, but not on Earth.
On Mars.

What the Critics Say

"Not for those who prefer their space opera simple-minded, this beautifully written tale where nothing is as it seems will please readers with a well-developed sense of wonder." (Publisher's Weekly on Hull Zero Three)
"Hull Zero Three is a grand adventure of scientific discovery in the tradition of Orphans of the Sky and Rendezvous with Rama - by turns chilling and touching, it poses challenging questions about what it means to be human." (Charles Stross)
"Packed with adventure and incident...and conveyed with gritty realism." (Kirkus on War Dogs)

- Robert

intro to a new universe and not much else

Unsatisfying. Story raises many questions and resolves precious few of them. Character development minimal. New science fiction concepts minimal. Seems like a military sci-fi, but military action minimal. Appears to be solely an introduction to a new universe. My time would have been much better spent revisiting Starship Troopers.
