Steven Montana, computer whiz and hacker extraordinaire, was attending college in Ohio when his world fell apart. A swarm of huge meteors fell all over the world, and in particular on Steven's home town. In an instant, his family and all his friends were gone. Later when he went from repairing broken computer games to working for a government project that was more secret than top secret, he would learn that the meteor onslaught had actually been a brief and still secret war between the U.S. and its enemies using a new secret warp drive technology. What's more, unfriendly aliens were observing the Earth and being attacked by secret U.S. spaceships. But this information might not do Steven any good, because those same aliens have grabbed him and are holding him prisoner on a spaceship orbiting Saturn, where he has just seen them completely dissect one of his two fellow prisoners. And it looks like both Steven and the Russian girl who is sharing his captivity are scheduled to be the next alien lab experiments...

Yeah, I'm surprised that the author was able to get a publisher to get this out in print form. Horrible writing.

An able follow-up to Warp Speed,with Travis's usual crackling, clarity and insight. Well worth the read.

Not a very good book, by an author whose bio reads quite a number of science degrees, yet Taylor appears not to have learned modern physics.

He promotes fantasy physics, quantum entanglement and the EPR paradox, yet apparently forgets, or has never learned about, Bell's Theorem or Bell's Inequality.

Better to go back and read GFB Riemann, David Boehm, John Bell, Paul Dirac and Julian Barbour and learn some real physics instead of wasting your time with Taylor's poor writing.

Worst book I have picked up in a long time. "Warp Speed", the first book in this series was OK in a cheesy way. But this book - the writing, plot, characters were so bad I couldn't be bothered to finish it.
