As the war between the Human Planetary Alliance and the Daklan intensifies, Captain Carl Recker experiences a sudden change in fortune.

With battle-hardened officers in short supply, he’s given command of a modified, shipyard-fresh destroyer and a mission to go with it. As part of a task force under the command of an officer Recker is unfortunately all-too-familiar with, the plan is to recover weapons and technology from an uncharted world on the edge of known space. Easy. Little does Recker know it, but the outcome of this mission may well determine the future of both humanity and the Daklan. The distant planet Pinvos will be the scene of conflict and destruction on a cataclysmic scale and even success will be tempered by the uncertainty of what he discovers. With each passing day, a faraway war fought on a colossal scale comes ever nearer and humanity has no defence against the weapons created to fight it. No defence except perhaps one thing. The alien warship Vengeance has survived countless engagements and still it endures, scarred by the brutality of its past. And Recker is the only man with the key to unlock its secrets. Fractured Horizons is a traditional-style science-fiction action adventure and the second book in the Savage Stars series, following directly after events in War from a Distant Sun. Expect space combat, ruthless aliens, mysterious tech and lots more.

    The conflict between the Human Planetary Alliance and the Daklan continues unabated with humanity slowly but surely losing ground. The potential treasure trove of technology captured by Captain Carl Recker and his crew remains in potential as Recker is given a new command and orders to seek out more of the mysterious alien technology. Once again he and his crew find themselves as underdogs in the race to discover the remnants of a third alien race and surprisingly evidence is revealed to account The conflict between the Human Planetary Alliance and the Daklan continues unabated with humanity slowly but surely losing ground. The potential treasure trove of technology captured by Captain Carl Recker and his crew remains in potential as Recker is given a new command and orders to seek out more of the mysterious alien technology. Once again he and his crew find themselves as underdogs in the race to discover the remnants of a third alien race and surprisingly evidence is revealed to account for a fourth. The sheer enormity of the technology being discovered makes the Daklan and Human war machines pale into insignificance and when such tech is deployed the two finally begin to talk. Fractured Horizons was a more enjoyable read than the first more so because I was now familiar with the world and its technology as well as Anthony's writing style. The potential narrative of a third novel is compelling and I recently purchased it for reading in the new year.

    Lacking Satisfaction Continued from book 1, the story tries to find some resolution and almost succeeds. Unfortunately, I made it to the end of book 2 and still have many questions unanswered. The battle scenes are confusing in their complexity, most of which does not improve the narrative. And our seasoned, experienced military personnel continue to act unsure of themselves and overthink every possibility.

Unfortunately, I made it to the end of book 2 and still have many questions unanswered. The battle scenes are confusing in their complexity, most of which does not improve the narrative. And our seasoned, experienced military personnel continue to act unsure of themselves and overthink every possibility. When finally presented with an opportunity to act, the first reaction is always to do nothing. Captain Recker only appears capable of action after major disasters have occurred. He never takes action to prevent attacks, he only reacts to what has already happened. Not an admirable trait in a military man. While I would like to find the resolution for all these story threads, I just do not retain sufficient interest to continue this sad series.

    Great Storyline Well you have done it again another great storyline.. Plenty of action and banter I think Sgt Vance could have a few storylines on his own maybe a book or two about Decker as a.marine.. Well this war just toolbar serious twist are we going to see a truce with the Daklan and then team up time will tell

    Good Story The series was well-written with fine descriptions and logical action scenes. The technology was relevant to the plot and the characters and their dialogue was believable.

    Decoded A good steady read. Although I feel the access to the alien tech was rather ‘easy’. But in times of war speed is of an essence. Looking forward to the next theatre of operation.
