From the Publisher:

I had just casually picked up A CALL TO ARMS to try out Foster's writing, and was engaged immediately. This is a classic SF yarn in the old style of bad guy aliens vs. good guy aliens, with humans holding a special place between them. The twist is that the special human qualities the aliens value are just the same qualities we abhor in ourselves. So while you enjoy the classic battles across the galaxy and interspecies intrigue, you have a very contemporary and critical view of humanity. The style is fluid and clear, the pace is fast and plotting well thought out--very professional. We've reprinted Foster backlist titles for years, and this new series inspired me go back and read them.

--Steve Palmer, Director of Production Mass Market

The Weave could reverse the effects, but the result could turn the former warriors into the most despicable creatures in the galaxy....
