Lieutenant Emil is quite possibly the most important crewmember to the Terrans in the war against the Vothriles. Everyone will rely on him when the Vothriles propose an alliance to fight against an even more dangerous common threat: Force Cantrithor. There is an interstellar war of epic proportions, but the real story is about Emil’s internal battle. Emil is trying to stave off insanity.

Emil is a fascinating character, but not entirely relatable. This may very well have been the intent, though.

The one really salient thing about this book is, I think, its use of perspective. Aside from the brief intro and outro chapters, it's all told from the standpoint of one character: Emil. Emil is a technician aboard a capital starship responsible for operating a device called an 'Effector'. More on that a little later. The story itself is seen throw the eyes of this character, including through their use of the above device, and so his viewpoint of the other characters, events, and so forth.

Humans have been fighting a war against the Vothriles for ten years.The war isn't going that well for the Humans.Their only real advantage is the emmers,individuals that can manipulate electromagnetic fields.The problem is the emmers are getting lost(going crazy).Emil is one of the emmers and he is starting to doubt his own sanity.He is having nightmares of his ship being boarded and the crew slaughtered by the Vothriles.Emil is even starting to doubt his own

If I could I'd give it four and a half stars. I can't give it that last star though because the ending felt a bit rushed and there seemed to be so many good ideas that just never quite came through.

But what the hay, I'll give it five anyway, I had a really hard time putting it down after all!
