As Omnius' predictions begin to come true, Ethan Ortane realizes he could lose the one thing that matters most to him in the universe - his family. Far from Avilon, the Sythians are hiding out in the neighboring Getties Cluster. Out there they discover something that isn't supposed to exist: a group of human rebels who escaped from Avilon. Their leader, Therius, seems to raise more questions than he answers, but he has a plan to defeat Omnius that just might work. As Therius' plan unfolds, people realize the terrible truth: He can't win by conventional means, and he knows it. The alternative is called the Armageddon Protocol, but it could mean the end of everything, not just Omnius....

This final book in the Dark Space series is a fitting closing for the entire cast of characters, and is filled with non-stop action and reveals. There are a ton of answers here on Omnius, the Immortals, the Sythians, the history of the human race, etc. Omnius must finally answer for his crimes and everyone must choose sides.
I was pleasantly surprised to see Atta become a useful character and wished she had been that way in prior books. Destra and Alara are pretty much useless in this novel, and Ethan mostly just sails through on auto pilot. Atton makes amazingly bad (but highly entertaining) choices throughout the whole novel that keeps things interesting. There is a bizarre subplot where Ethan is accused of cheating, but he really doesn't, and Alara acts completely insane from that point forward. The ending is a fitting conclusion but goes heavy on the explanations and it doesn't always make sense. The book also tends to hit you over the head about "freedom" and actually ended up cheapening death.
For the audiobook, the narration continued to be top notch with the only misses being the child voices... the narrator can only do one type of child voice, and that is the completely annoying kind.
Overall, well worth a read/listen and a great closure to the series.
