The Three-Cornered War
By John Dalmas

Publisher: Baen
Published In: Riverdale, New York, USA
Date: 1999
Pgs: 419

Summary:
The dangerous ape species must be eliminated from space. Two warring empires of humans find themselves attacked by an alien empire, hence, the three-cornered war of the title. The human of the Confederation after the collapse of ancient human civilization dedicated themselves to limiting the sciences that they blamed for the wars that destroyed the star empires of man. The Caliphate functions under no such restrictions and they are coming for blood. And behind them a Garthid battle fleet is approaching. The Confederations psychic spies are their only advantage. The war is coming.

Genre:
Science Fiction; Militaria; Space Opera

Main Character:
It reads like an ensemble piece. Lotta could be the main character. Same could be said of the Emeritus Kalif.

Favorite Character:
The Emeritus Kalif

Least Favorite Character:
Admiral Loksa Siilakamasu...he’s the villain. He’s supposed to be the bad guy.

Favorite Scene:
When the Kalif realizes that his rescuer probably has an intimate past with his wife.

Plot Holes/Out of Character:
If anything the Garthids seemed to get off stage too easily. Still awesome, just too cut and dried.

Last Page Sound:
Cool.

Author Assessment:
Definitely read more by this author.

Disposition of Book:
Keep It / Reread it...someday.

Why isn't there a screenplay?:
This could make an awesome movie. Loads of SFX. Though the whole psychic spies looking through alien eyes hundreds of thousands of hyperspace days away might not translate that well to the movie screen. ( )
