"Lt. Ben Pollard thinks he's traded the perils of the Belt for security as an Earth-based computer jockey for United Defence Command. Then he's forced to perform a mission of mercy - and lands on an isolated, intrigue-riddled space station. In Hellburner, her newest novel, Hugo Award winner C. J. Cherryh returns to the best-selling universe of Heavy Time, Cyteen, and Downbelow Station, and creates a story of multi-global conspiracy, power politics, and military in-fighting. Here the stakes are nothing less than the future of humanity." "When Pollard finds himself stranded on the Sol II battle installation without his orders, I.D., and possessions, he discovers something equally disturbing. He's been named next-of-kin to a man he never wanted to even see again: Paul Dekker, a young pilot who attracts crises like dead flesh draws flies. The centerpiece of a top-secret war project, Dekker has just lost his entire crew in a mysterious freak accident and lost his mind to amnesia from an attempted suicide. Or attempted murder. Suddenly two more faces from Dekker and Pollard's past are shanghaied to Sol II: their occasional lovers, renegade pilots Meg Kady and Sal Aboujib." "Together they had once smashed the criminal cover-ups of a mining cartel. Now, they're all caught in a shadowy, deadly maze of power-mongering rivalries between UDC and Fleet Strategic Operations, the Senate and Peace Lobby, and the corporate lords of both Earth and Mars. In this subtle, dark contest with mysteries that deepen by the hour and rules that change without warning, Pollard, Kady, Aboujib and Dekker must survive kidnapping, sabotage, ambush, riots, kangaroo courts, conspiracy, and treason - only to become lab animals in the frontline of an endless war for humanity's soul. The two couples are being programmed to crew an experimental deathship no one has been able to control. And to escape the quagmire of manipulation, Pollard and his companions must master and wield the awesome power of - Hellburner."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

The first book of the Union-Alliance universe. An earthside view of Earth's view of the intergalactic war that figures hugely in subsequent books. Ben Pollard is looking for a cushy earthside job, but lands in something vastly different. ( )

Read 2017, favourite. ( )

Cherryh uses the same characters as she used in Heavy Time in this book about their experiences in a military research program. Fortunately, the characters are a little less extreme here, with Pollard not being a complete jerk and Dekker a little less PTSD-ey. The main conflict here is between different branches of the military (whose top brass is not exactly amenable to suggestion and/or reasonable) having different ideas about how the program should be run, with a distant political backdrop of "peacers" who want to scrap the program entirely. The peacers repeatedly try to sabotage the program, causing the unknowing military branches to start pointing fingers at one another. While I'm still not a huge fan of the main characters, I did find the politics of the situation pretty interesting. ( )

It's okay, but not Cherryh at her best. The plot and themes just aren't compelling. ( )
  KirkLowery | Mar 4, 2014 |
This book is a sequel to "Heavy Time", which I really enjoyed. We're back for more with Dek, Ben, Meg and Sal, plus characters from other Alliance/Union novels interwoven in the plot.

As usual, the author does a fantastic job with characters and situations, building an intricate yet believable universe...I don't know how she does it.

Don't not read this book, it's very good, but I felt it could have been a bit better (I hold Ms. Cherryh to a very high standard) and a little more of a conclusion at the end would have been nice...or a sequel novel. ( )

To the extraordinary crew at Wave Without a Shore, who scanned, proofed and worked into a holiday to get Heavy Time and Hellburner ready to load. Thank you.
