WALL STREET JOURNAL BESTSELLER * "An interstellar suspense thriller . . . sweeping in scope and emotional range."--S an Antonio Express-News

In the star-spanning civilization known as the Intersolar Commonwealth, twenty-three planets have fallen victim to the Prime, a technologically advanced alien species genetically hardwired to exterminate all other forms of life. But the Prime is not the only threat. The Starflyer, an alien with mind-control abilities impossible to detect or resist, has secretly infiltrated the Commonwealth and is sabotaging the war effort. Is the Starflyer an ally of the Prime, or has it orchestrated a fight to the death between the two species for its own advantage? Caught between two deadly enemies, the fractious Commonwealth must unite as never before. This will be humanity's finest hour--or its last gasp.

This volume started off well, with some great action sequences and plot advancement from volume one, and then fizzled out and disappointed me in many ways. I will not be reading more by Hamilton.

Hamilton has a lot of original scifi ideas and concepts, which made me want to continue the Commonwealth series. Here he continues to juggle a lot of characters and plot lines, but the dialog is tedious and overbearing at times, and doesn't really advance the novel, except to slow it down. This novel felt like it should have been completed in 300 pages, not 827.
