The Ruhar hit us on Columbus Day. There we were, innocently drifting along the cosmos on our little blue marble, like the Native Americans in 1492. Over the horizon came ships of a technologically advanced, aggressive culture, and BAM! There went the good old days, when humans got killed only by each other. So, Columbus Day. It fits. When the morning sky twinkled again, this time with Kristang starships jumping in to hammer the Ruhar, we thought we were saved.

If you like science fiction war books you will love this one. Starts out well but gets bogged down with war jargon and is way too repetitive. It keeps repeating what has happened and what the objectives are. We don't need reminding every chapter! Narration is fabulous. Excellent voices of all of the characters.
