A disgraced starship captain is court marshalled on trumped up charges to hide a faulty decision made by his commanding Admiral. Scott Drumond is appointed as commanding officer aboard a five-man scout ship tasked with investigating an anomaly in deep space.
This provides the means for Drumond to return home to confront the nefarious admiral who has staged a coup, taking over the ruling senate and making himself a dictator.
This character driven novel is actually quite good, but like I stated, the first half + is quite boring and slow in my estimation. Much of the dialogue is a bit dated and stilted. You'll learn quite a few new words, many of them archaic. If you have a dictionary with your e-reader, you'll be a step ahead.
The ending is quite sucky (?) but there promises to be a sequel. There is action, romance, betrayal, murder and a quasi-alien invasion to contend with.
The bit about the time shield is odd. The fact that a ship goes into the future and returns has absolutely zero bearing on the story. None at all. It could have been left out. The author could have just explained it as a portal to a parallel universe and it would have been enough.
Editing is good with only a couple of synonym switch errors. Far less than usual.
I really liked the second half of the book, other than the ending... it could have been much better. I didn't like it enough to buy the sequel, though.
