The 'rock' that is Earth's moon is perhaps not exactly what you think it is...
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.

What a trully fantastic premise for a sci/fi book! A real gem of a book!
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.

Great early Weber novel. Unlike his later novels he does actually move things along rather than taking his time to milk the concept for all its worth. Sadly the opposite is true here and Mr Weber and things move along with such alacrity that many key moments are hardly down justice. Still, if you like sci-fi in a military/political mould with plenty of descriptions of tactics and not too much disregarding of the laws of physics this may be for you.

All I wanted was something to keep me awake while waiting around in an airport. Like most of David Weber's books, this one also kept me awake till - you don't want to know hwen - to finnish it. And I don't even like military stories. Usually.
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 book pulls you into a world that is unexpected and full of war and violence. Yet, you always have the sense of hope and justice. As in most of David Weber's books, the characters are lean and mean. The Mutineer's storyline has the potential to progress indefinitly, much like the Honor Herrington novels that he writes. Mr. Weber has the ability to keep his readers on the edge with the immediate storyline, and still have them wanting more at the book's end.
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 Moons an undercover starship. Older than mankind on earth. If that's not a mind blower. The trip goes on with a underground war. Which has gone on almost as long. Between sets of aliens. fighting over the fate of earth.

This is the first book in the "Dahak" space opera trilogy, which consists of

Mutineer's Moon
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)

I am not truly sure why I liked this book. It lacks the flavor of the Harrington saga; the storyline is simplistic considering the political, cultural and social implications of a plot that gives enough ground for at least half a dozen novels; the caracters are cut from cardboard and the combat scenes, although fast and furious, did not grasp my attention as usual. Nevertheless, the basic ingredients are here, and David Weber is a writer talented enough to concoct a palatable dish without changing them a bit. The pity is that with a hundred more pages this would a much better novel.
