This novel is amazing, although it does have it share of errors it can, and should be overlooked. The author of this book has an amazing view of the world of tomorrow. The book pulls you into the world of Adam Smith, a young and promising captian of the Earth Fleet. Earth is at war with an alien race, the Martyrs, they will die to recieve honor, they will kill to obtain it, and kill to regain it. Just as we thought our war could get no worse, a new foe comes into play, the Deseeds, they have the ultimate weapon. They wish to extinguish what they deem unholy, their war is that of a religious nature, and the war seems to be going their way...will humanity live, or wil we too be extinguished?
