When Colin MacIntyre (an astronaught for NASA) flies a solo mission orbiting the Moon to run some tests, his equipment shows him something strange. Strange enough for him to believe the 'sophisticated' equipment has malifunctioned. Colin lands up being picked up out of his life and thrown into a new life based around a 50 000 year old, long dead society . That has a dilema worthy of it's size and age.
There is something strange about our Moon...
Join Senior Fleet Captain Colin MacIntyre and find out what threatens our very excistance.
Webber has given us a book to fire the imagination! With plenty of action for the adrenaline junkies happy and technology to keep the gadget freaks on their toes!
Colin comes across as a down to earth, sober and dedicated individual, he steps up to the plate and does his duty when the time arises !
Overall a brilliant book with original ideas and interesting charectors! Even a A.I with a mission to complete.
But what would you do if a fifty-two thousand year old starship with no crew and a computer trapped by conflicting orders kidnapped you and asked you to save the world?
When a NASA astronaut is unexpectedly diverted from a routine training flight, he is as unprepared for a galctic view of history as any reader. The stretching of his/our horizons is undeniably hilarious, but could any of this actually be true?
It is unusual to find a work of Science fiction with so broad and original a basic premis. And it could almost be true. Almost, I hope!
This novel is a must for Science Fiction readers, but it can also grab the imagination of all readers. I give it a definite thumbs up.
The Armageddon Inheritance
Heirs Of Empire (Dahak series)
The whole trilogy has also been published in one volume as "Empire from the Ashes"
Astronaut Colin Mackintyre is flying a mission on the far side of the moon when something very strange happens ...
I really enjoyed this trilogy. The plots are rather fetched (though very clever) but the fast and furious action, with cleverly drawn and mostly sympathetic characters, enabled me to suspend disbelief.
A little hard to reconcile the fossil evidence for the origins of our species with the rather different explanation for the presence of human life on earth in this story, but Weber does a sterling job of enabling you to suspend disbelief. And ironically, the mind of the supercomputer which controls a huge ship called Dahak is one of the more memorable characters of recent science fiction.
An interesting comparison showing how Weber's writing has developed, is to look at how some of the ideas of this trilogy have been re-used in the massive Nimue Alban or "Safehold" series which Weber is currently writing and which to date consists of:
Off Armageddon Reef (Safehold 1)

Nice 3 book series and keeps the pages turning and develops the personalities in enough detail without being as deeply drawn as the recent competition out there (Bujold, Moon and... Read morePublished on 12 Feb. 2009 by VonRichtoven
Mutineer's Moon and the entire Dahak series is an excellent bit of si-fi writing. In my opinion, it's even better than his much more acclaimed Honor Harrington series. Read morePublished on 10 Mar. 1999

A fun 'space opera' where it turns out our moon is a giant space ship. Not the best of David Weber's books, but good. Read morePublished on 9 Jun. 1998
