Black Ops—the intelligence arm of the Meridian Alliance Fleet came calling with an offer Henricksen couldn’t refuse: a ship—an entire squadron of ships, actually—and crew to command. A chance to get back to the stars.

Too bad he didn’t ask more questions before accepting the assignment. Too bad no one told him just how dangerous this particular skunkworks project was.

I read “Serengeti” last year and enjoyed it. Apparently, this book takes place before the happenings in the “Serengeti” book.

In this book the main character is a human being not a AI in a Starship. He is Commander Henriksen who is in command of the Meridian Alliance Hecate. Hecate is an Aurora-class vessel. He is led into a trap and the Hecate is destroyed. Henriksen is then assigned to a black ops mission. His new ship is RV-N (Reconnaissance vessel-noncombatant) named Raven; a stealth ship is

Rockwell has the uncanny ability to make dramatic and interesting the day to day life of her characters. Few authors tell the slow story well, while keeping tensions high. I think it's even harder to do in Science Fiction. Hecate reads SO authentically. Its characters are fully drawn and they are people I want to spend time with. I say characters, when some of them are AI, which makes her abilities as a writer all the more remarkable. This is a wonderful character driven SciFi thriller, with an ...more

I was caught by surprise with this book. So as not to have you in the same position, I’ll tell you why. This book happens before “Serengeti”. I prefer to read my book series in sequence and don’t particularly like to go back in time. Still, this was a very good book although some of the military aspects are kind of strange. Our main character is a human this time, not a starship. He’s Commander Henricksen in Command of the Meridian Alliance Hecate, an Aurora-class vessel. Surprisingly, he’s seem ...more

Oh Henricksen...

I was surprised to find that this story was a prequel! I read Serengeti and Dark and Stars, but to read about Henricksen in the Black Ops before all that was very cool. He is the perfect gruff, stubborn, yet surprisingly emotional kind of guy, and I love reading about his adventures. The AIs always steal the show though, which I also liked about all three books. I'd have given five stars but there were just a few too many typos for my liking. And I'm not exactly a huge fan of the

This book follows the trajectory of Captain Henricksen after his ship/AI Hecate is destroyed in an ambush scenario by the enemies of the Meridian Alliance (... I can't remember the baddies' collective name now - note to self, look it up later). Henricksen ends up in a black-ops stealth ship program as he tries to figure out why the brass needs this project to be operable with such haste - even at the expense of his pilots' lives.

I understood going into this book that it serves as a prequel to t

Beta read an earlier version of the this and loved it. Brilliant to hear Henricksen's story and learn about the RV-Ns, and the friendship between Henricksen and Sikukuu. Plus, there were lots of interesting new faces to fall in love with (FISKEEEERRRRR).

An awesome prequel/sequel to Serengeti and Dark and Stars, both of which I really loved. It was great to learn about the characters and events leading up to what happened in the first two books. It stands well on its own too. And of course it's a kick-butt, exciting book with lots of twists and turns!

J.B. Rockwell is a New Englander, which is important to note because it means she's (a) hard headed, (b) frequently stubborn, and (c) prone to fits of snarky sarcasticness. As a kid she subsisted on a steady diet of fairy tales, folklore, mythology augmented by generous helpings of science fiction and fantasy. As a quasi-adult she dreamed of being the next Indiana Jones and even pursued (and earne ...more
