About Book

David Weber, author of the enormously popular Honor Harrington military SF series, takes to deep space and the high seas in the opening chapters of Apocalypse Troll. The fateful space battle and resulting spaceship crash that bring together Colonel Ludmilla Leonova and Captain Richard Aston, U.S. Navy, set the stage for another rip-roaring, guns-blazing science fiction adventure. When Captain Aston finds out Colonel Leonova's secret, he eagerly offers his help, then finds himself in the middle of an extremely dangerous military situation. Weber's fast plots, nonstop action, and attention to detail are what makes his books so much fun to read, and Apocalypse Troll is no exception. --Adam Fisher

From Publishers Weekly
In the year 2007, two UFO formations?one helmed by alien Kangas, the other by humans?burst into sight over the Atlantic. Both groups are from the future; the humans have been pursuing the Kangas through time in a desperate effort to stop them from showering Earth with biological weapons. Firing nuclear warheads at their enemies, and at a nearby navy carrier group, the Kangas almost win but are finally defeated by a special navy taskforce. One human from the future survives the battle. She is Colonel Ludmilla Leonovna, rescued by an ex-SEAL, Captain Richard Aston. But one of the human-brained Kanga cyborgs called Trolls also survives, and is determined to use his weapons and his ability to control minds to fulfill his masters' highest desire: the destruction of humanity. Aston and Leonovna, who retains one Troll-killing weapon, find themselves leading an international effort to locate and destroy the Troll, who is raising a following among hate groups in the Appalachians. Although not written on the magisterial scale of his recent Honor Harrington volumes, this is worthwhile Weber. The novel's final third is a particular delight, offering nonstop action that's both well executed and emotionally satisfying.

From Library Journal
A far future space war against a race that employed killer cyborgs (or "Trolls") enters a new dimension as the human-hating Kangas send a Troll into Earth's distant past with the destruction of humanity as its goal. The hopes of the human race hinge on one woman, Col. Ludmilla Leonova, who follows her enemy through time in an attempt to convince 20th-century humans that their future has arrived. The author of the popular Honor Harrington series demonstrates his skill at fast-paced combat scenes and rapid-fire action in an sf adventure that encompasses both the far and near futures. A good choice for most sf collections.
