Steven Montana, computer whiz and hacker extraordinaire, was attending college in Ohio when his world fell apart. A swarm of huge meteors fell all over the world, on Europe, on the United States, and in particular on Steven¿s home town in California. In an instant, his family and all his friends were gone. Eventually, he learned that the ¿meteor¿ onslaught that had orphaned him had actually been a brief and still secret war between the U.S and its enemies (as told in Warp Speed ) using a new warp drive technology that was more secret than top secret. Another secret was that U.S. had been sending faster-than-light ships to other star systems. Most secret of all was that unfriendly aliens were observing the Earth, and while U.S. spaceships were not quite in a war with the unknown aliens, they were shooting at the intruders. Whether any of these answers would do Steven any good was an open question because he learned them only after his was abducted by those very same aliens and was held prisoner on one of their ships orbiting Saturn. At first, he was one of three human prisoners, but he had just seen the aliens completely dissect one of the three, and it looked like either Steven, or the Russian girl who was his fellow prisoner, were scheduled to be the next alien lab experiment. . . .

Yeah, I'm surprised that the author was able to get a publisher to get this out in print form. Horrible writing.

An able follow-up to Warp Speed,with Travis's usual crackling, clarity and insight. Well worth the read.

Not a very good book, by an author whose bio reads quite a number of science degrees, yet Taylor appears not to have learned modern physics.

He promotes fantasy physics, quantum entanglement and the EPR paradox, yet apparently forgets, or has never learned about, Bell's Theorem or Bell's Inequality.

Better to go back and read GFB Riemann, David Boehm, John Bell, Paul Dirac and Julian Barbour and learn some real physics instead of wasting your time with Taylor's poor writing.

Worst book I have picked up in a long time. "Warp Speed", the first book in this series was OK in a cheesy way. But this book - the writing, plot, characters were so bad I couldn't be bothered to finish it.
