Publisher's Summary

An entire sector in turmoil...neighbors who appear unconcerned...a favor asked of an old friend...sacrifices made for the good of humanity....
Before they can challenge the Dusahn and prevent them from expanding their empire further, the Karuzari must first gather much-needed resources. But doing so could be more difficult than anticipated.

A Good Space Opera

I have read all of Brown’s books in the two series. I think it is best if one reads them in order. It helps to keep the characters and events arranged.

The first part of the book introduces some new characters and provides some depth to exciting personalities. The first part provides a buildup of suspense toward an event or battle. Brown weaves various plots and locations as the main plot progresses. Then the story suddenly starts moving very fast. There were some great battle scenes on land and space that had me biting my nails. The title of the book has to do with the operation of the gun ships. Nathan and associates are preparing for war. The ending of the book was a bit of a surprise. Cannot wait for the next book to come out.

The book is almost eleven hours long. Jeffrey Kafer does an excellent job narrating the book. Kafer has narrated both series.

When you set a high standard

Sometimes when an author is in the middle of a good series and the reader has the associated high expectation a book will flop! That is the case here.

I struggled to finish this book where others in series I listened straight through.
In my opinion this was one or two chapters stretched to try and make it into a whole book. The dialogue was clumsy and forced.
I read a lot of glowing reviews for this book. They must have listened to a different book because this one isn't good.
You experience may differ. The previous books were very good. I don't know if I'll continue with this series if I feel the flop trend will continue.

Yeah pretty good

The saga is continuing in the same fluidness. I enjoyed it. I hope you listen.
