Center of Gravity is the second book in the explosive Star Carrier series by Ian Douglas--and a breathtaking new high in military sf, the strongest of the science fiction subgenres. Battlestar Galactica fans will adore this saga of ultimate war in deep space, as humankind risks its very future, battling a vast alien evil empire in order to achieve transcendence and become a major power in the universe. Douglas's Center of Gravity belongs on every action-lover's sf bookshelf--right between Joe Haldeman's The Forever War and Heinlein's Starship Troopers.

display_description "On the far side of known human space, the Marines are under siege, battling the relentless servant races of the Sh'daar aggressor. With a task force stripped to the bone and the Terran Confederation of States racked by dissent, rogue Admiral Alexander Koenig must make the momentous decision that will seal his fate and the fate of humankind. A strong defensive posture is futile, so Koenig will seize the initiative and turn the gargantuan Star Carrier America toward the unknown. For the element of surprise is the only hope of stalling the Sh'daar assault on Earth's solar system-and the war for humankind's survival must be taken directly to the enemy'--Publisher's description.
