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.

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.

Review: Center of Gravity (Star Carrier #2)

User Review  - Goodreads

This book in the series is better than the first first. While much of the story is taken up by vivd descriptions of battles, that is what gives this series its charm. The story moved along much more in this novel than in the first so I am excited to see what comes next. Read full review
