Teaser:

Rumors of an ancient doomsday device come to the attention of the Cerberus rebels when it's stolen by an old enemy, Gilgamesh Bates. The pre-Dark mogul who engineered his own survival has now set his sights on a controlling share of the cosmic pie.  Kane, Grant, Brigid and Domi ally themselves with Bates' retired personal army, the time-trawled force of American commandos ready to take the battle back to Bates himself, wherever he's hiding in the galaxy, before the entire universe disappears in the blink of an eye.

Back Cover:

Universal Domain

The baronial civilization that ruled postapocalyptic America stands on the threshold of a much more sinister plot: the complete domination of Earth. These oppressors are determined to relegate humanity to the status of slavery, and crush the nascent force of freedom fighters who've dared to rebel against a powerful alien race.

Sci-Fi Blowout!
by fatkidsfighting
Yeah, I called it a sci-fi blowout. Pretty much captures the whole thing.
This is the first Outlanders book I have read. I've always been intrigued by the idea of series fiction but the actual execution is often lacking (i.e. the concept is more fascinating than the books).
But I have to say, once it got past a kind of slow start, this one pieced together into a rather a fun and engagin sci-fi story.
A sci-fi blowout, to be exact. Which means this: It's got all the hardware horndog attitude of these action books (descriptions of the weaponry being carried and nice, visceral descriptions of what happens when one of these bits of weaponry gets a hold of someone). But it's got an out-of-this-world (literally) story that captures a wee bit of Arthur C. Clarke's 2001 sort of fascination mingled with the imaginative glee of Star Wars.
It seems like I picked a good starting point for trying to get into this series. Of course I can't judge how faithful this is to previous installments or how well it sticks with - or how poorly - the general continuity of the books printed up until this point.
But, while it may be no Remo Williams yarn, it is a spicy, fun chapter in a long-running sci-fi adventure series.
