        The sentient warship Trouble Dog was built for violence, yet following a brutal war, she is disgusted by her role in a genocide. Stripped of her weaponry and seeking to atone, she joins the House of Reclamation, an organisation dedicated to rescuing ships in distress. When a civilian ship goes missing in a disputed system, Trouble Dog and her Author: Gareth L. Powell.   ‘Embers Of War’ is book one in the ‘Ember Of War’ series by Gareth L Powell. Trouble Dog is a warship. Well, she was a warship but she turned her back on her past and has become a saviour ship instead. Now she travels space at the command of the House Of Reclamation, trying to find and rescue ships and their passengers that are in trouble.

        Gareth Powell’s ‘EMBERS OF WAR’ certainly fits that description. It is a page turner and, as a story, quite entertaining. The prose is brisk and straightforward with none of the odd names and peculiar titles that many such novels lean toward. In short, it is a book that Robert Heinlein would have enjoyed. But it is also something more/5.   To the Editor: I must take issue with Alan Brinkley’s review of Fredrik Logevall’s “Embers of War” (Sept. 9).. The idea that France was able to resume its colonial control of Vietnam.

In Embers of War, his sixth novel and first of a new trilogy, he explores the endless need to fight for peace. Centuries in our future, humans have joined the intergalactic world and mix with all kinds of aliens and : Gareth L. Powell.
