Summary

The hive-like soldiers of Social Unity invade Tanner's world. After a bitter fight, a handful of freedom fighters make it off-world to continue the resistance from space.

One by one, Social Unity eliminates the freedom fighters until only Tanner and his ship are left. Then, they trap him on a luxury space station. From prison, Tanner makes a deal with a mysterious Earthman, Lord Acton. The Earthman is vague about a stealth mission on the galactic rim, but Tanner is desperate.

Everything seems reasonable until they sneak onto an asteroid pirate base where Acton purchases unbelievable weapons. The Earthman has a distant rendezvous on a dead world where the dreaded cyborgs once made their last stand against the Old Federation. But the planet isn't dead; Social Unity has followed them with a fleet and an ancient threat is now revealed. Is Acton a traitor to humanity or its potential savior? Whatever the case, Tanner is in it deep, fighting to save the human race.

Star Raider is the story of one ship and one captain that will either save the galaxy or destroy it.

On the fence

I great performance by Kafer. The story itself is good but it feels like the conversations between the characters seem to be overly long often going in circles. Still good but somewhat annoying!

Horrible.

Heppner usually is good. This one however seemed phoned in. It just seems like this book was written by a high school aged jock who only knows the crap cliches from low budget science fiction movies from the 1980's, and has not one iota of knowledge of any armed forces or human psychology. This is all presented in a package that has zero exposition or character building.

Not his best.

Best SciFi book!!

Loved this book. I was so sad when this book was over! The complex story and lovable characters made this book hard to pause for work and impossible to stop during the middle of a chapter.

New aliens

I loved this story. It had action plus several alien species that interact with the humans. Some of the scenes with the main character in a predicament were short to conclusion with the main character successfully escaping. Many characters had mysteries that were revealed rather simply toward the end of the book. Would like more exploration of the mysterious alien's origins, all of his fantastic machines, chemical compounds, and his quest to eliminate the phase aliens and the cyborgs threat.

Not his best work.

This book seemed rushed at times and at other times drag with constant repetition of the plot line by the characters. Btw one of my biggest pet peeves. I have enjoyed his other works and will read his future works. This book can be skipped. Kafer was excellent as always.
