So, not bad, but not too much action, all of the battles of space-based, ships throwing slugs / firing missiles at each other with some lasers , the action is redundant and if you've read One battle you've read them all.all in all, a not bad book, not too many technical details about every instrument on the ship which is a VERY good thing IMO :) if you like naval battles in space, you should read it, still [b:Helmsman|446262|The Helmsman (The Helmsman, 1)|Bill Baldwin|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1174849121s/446262.jpg|434965] series were better at this thing. I am looking forward to the second book ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0345495713, Mass Market Paperback)

“A planet-stomping space opera that bursts off the page like a tactical nuke.”
–John Birmingham, author of Weapons of Choice

The Hammer Worlds–the most brutal and oppressive interstellar government in the universe–have hijacked the Federated Worlds cruise ship Mumtaz, seizing its valuable terraforming cargo and damning its passengers to mining the moons of the prison planet known as Hell.

For Junior Lieutenant Michael Helfort and the crew aboard deep space scout vessel 387, the mission is clear: infiltrate enemy territory, locate the Mumtaz, and rescue the prisoners.

The odds are appalling, and the damage will probably be fatal, but victory is nonnegotiable–especially for Helfort, whose mother and sister were on the Mumtaz.

And Michael Helfort will be damned if he’ll let his family rot on the moons of Hell.
