Publisher's Summary

The war may be over, but the fighting continues as SOLCOM learns of an excursion by the Ross'El against an unaffiliated prespace civilization in the no man's land between Earth and the Alien Alliance.
With always more questions than answers, SOLCOM dispatches a ship to quietly survey the situation and determine what, if any, course of action is best. Captain Sorilla Aida and her team are the ground element assigned to the task, with the clear understanding that no matter what, they are to remain undetected by the alien overlords now controlling the moon world.
Sorilla knows only one thing for certain as she learns more about the situation: Oppression is universal, freedom is never free...and this is exactly what she trained for.

Aida goes back to her roots

De Oppresso Liber is Evan Currie's 6th installment in the On Silver Wings series. This time out, captain Aida Soria leads a special ops onto a recently discovered inhabited planet that the Ross appear to be playing out like Hayden. This gravity well however is home to an intelligent, indigenous race that have not yet advanced sufficiently for Alliance consideration. While Aida's mission is to train an native, insurgent, guerrilla force, her natural tendencies rise to the surface and she uncovers the real intentions of the Ross world invasion and discovers buried secrets that may tip the balance of Alliance power and put Earth on an equal footing with the Ross.

The sci-fi elements continue with an alien theme. The new alien race, while overall humanoid, are uniquely distinct and intriguing. There's also more exploration of Alliance history, especially concerning the Grav, the Ross' natural enemy and the only entity that has been able to fight them to a standstill. At this point, Currie has constructed a comprehensive universe with an interesting mix of alien cultures, galactic politics, and solid, endearing recurring characters. The potential for future installments is wide open at this point.

The narration is performed superbly with an excellent range of voices of both genders. At the same time, alien voices are rendered in a unique style that adds to the performance.

Annoying reader

I like the stories in this series but I couldn't tell whether the writing has degraded or it was just the annoying performance.
