Summary

The last instalment in the Star Carrier series, where first contact, space opera and military adventure combine, from New York Times best-selling author Ian Douglas! 

Will this be the end - or a new beginning?

Having battled aliens to prove humanity’s worth as a star-faring species, Admiral Trevor Gray has a new mission: follow the directives of the super-AI Konstantin and lead the star carrier America on a mission through time and space to determine if humanity can truly transcend into Singularity...and avoid the pitfalls that have plagued so many of the aliens Earth has encountered since it gained faster-than-light travel.

But there are those out there who don’t want an answer, who wish to maintain their own power with the status quo. Beyond the dangers of star travel, Gray must contend with politicians looking to end the influence of artificial intelligence on human decisions, a secret fleet out to destroy him, hostile aliens and the vast, uncharted space full of clues but short on answers.

A species must evolve to survive into the future. But that species must have a vision of the future. Gray hopes to find that vision for humanity...800,000 years in the past.

Cracking good read

This is book 9 of the Star Carrier series, the last leg of a rollercoaster ride through a thoroughly compelling vision of the future. It has reams and reams of "wish-we-had-that-now" technology that makes you wish you were born in the year 2350, plus a huge cast of well-crafted and very alien aliens thrown in for good measure - loved it!
