9780441054077: Berserker man

For countless millennia the dreadful Berserker fleets have ranged across the galaxy in a relentless war against all things living. Their equally relentless opponent has been one of the least evolved of intelligent species, for of all the starfaring races, only mankind still has the heritage and instinct of battle, facing the enemy of all life in battle after battle.

To defeat the ultimate weapon, you must become one! Once, mankind feared the berserkers, killer machines determined to eradicate all life in the universe. But the Berserker Wars are over and the threat of the sentient doomsday devices is over. Or is it?

In Berserker Man: Over a century after the Beserkers have suffered an overwhelming defeat, humans have become complacent. But the killer machines have repaired and rebuilt themselves, and this time may succeed in eradicating humanity from the galaxy-unless they can be stopped by a child who is half man and half machine.

The berserkers are back, stronger and more unstoppable than before. And one strange child, half human and half machine, may be humanity's only hope--or its final destroyer.

From AudioFile:

In a swarm of asteroid-sized, machine-like undead, theBerserkers flow into human space once again, and again their object isannihilation of all life. The humans create a weapon of subtlety andpower: a body suit/ shield/ hammer/ mind-expander/ energy-blaster. Butit is suited only to special warriors, and our young hero is the firstexemplar. Barrett Whitener captures Fred Saberhagen's humanity andemotion. His subtle narration carries each scene in crisp, breathydetail. Science fiction rarely gets better than this as we imaginewhat it's like to be alone among the stars. D.R.W. © AudioFile2001, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
