Until this book I had forgotten just how much I love good science fiction and Cameron’s is not just good, it’s exceptional.

The concepts are staggering and intensely interesting.

The interstellar array which links worlds together wakes to find it has enemies…

The Fourth Carinad Empire stretches across hundreds of settled worlds and stellar cities, and thousands of light years.  The Empire’s people and data are linked by a space-folding gates array controlled by the Emperor and his cohorts.  When the array evolves into a sentient entity, it recognizes the Emperor as its foe.

Danny Andela, once known as The Imperial Hammer, withdrew from the Imperial Rangers decades ago, her reputation in tatters. She lives on her family’s star barge, waiting to die of a rare disease: old age.  She would be the array’s perfect weapon against the Emperor, except she no longer gives a damn–about anything.

Then Danny learns that the military disaster which essentially ended her life might possibly have been arranged by the Emperor himself…

A mind-blowing story in a captivating world with exceptional characters!

Wow, what an exciting story with more plot twists and surprises than a high mountain switchback road!
The complex concepts of the space-based life were broken into easy-to-read bites making this adventure totally captivating!

I was fascinated by the gradually revealed machinations as the mysteries of past events unfolded to reveal the full picture of what had really happened.

It seems like a slow introduction until suddenly I felt like I'd been dropped into exciting events that contain exhilarating elements of suspense and mystery. I had no idea of what would be uncovered from the past, and how it would affect their present, from one moment to the next.

This first book in the series has great closure but I'm hooked and keen to know what happens next in this space opera series.

Fabulous Sci-fi Adventure!!

In a future where longevity the norm as people rejuvenate to keep themselves “young”, interstellar travel occurs through arrays, and you print most of what you need. An event negatively affects a family so a grandmother and her granddaughter undertake a journey to discover the truth behind what occurred.

You will be transported to another dimension. The attention to detail makes everything you read plausible and you’ll exist in this new world along with these characters in this incredible story.

Hammer and Crucible

Cameron Cooper has just reminded me of how much I love a well-written science fiction story. He builds the scenes in a way that I feel as though I am actually walking long the ship’s corridors and I can totally relate to all of the characters. There is action, great world building, multi-dimensional characters and a well-written plot.
I cannot wait for the next book in this series. Thanks Cameron!
