The long-planned raid on the heart of the Grik Empire has grown more ambitious - and dangerously ill-defined. Only Matthew Reddy, commander of the old destroyer USS Walker, seems focused on its original intent.
Many Lemurians see an opportunity to reconquer their sacred homeland, which was stolen long ago, and have no intention of simply striking a blow and then pulling back. Others, Lemurian and human, have their own agendas - which may not be in the best interests of the Alliance. Complicating matters further is Reddy's suspicion that his task force is being stalked by an unknown power bent on aiding the Grik for reasons of its own.
As the raid begins and chaos reigns, Reddy has no choice but to go all in, risking everything in a desperate act that results in a sprawling, nightmarish battle on the beaches of "Grik City", on the very decks of Walker, and in the labyrinthine passageways of the Celestial Palace itself.
The final cost could be more than Matt Reddy - or the Alliance - can bear.

Fastest in the series
I liked how this one moved things along. The battle was taken to the enemy! I like how the newer characters developed. While some of the older characters were taken away (no spoilers here)
None, haven't came across any which are similar
I know it sounds stupid, but Petty the bird lizard thing has some great one liners!
As much as I liked it, no. The book is just too long to do so, even if you speed the narration up a little.
Once again I feel angry because of the ending. Just once I want the ending not to be a wind up to buy the next in the series!

Deadly Shores is another brilliant masterpiece.
I drive long distances and don't have a lot of time for print. The narrator does such a great job with the voices of the characters, he really makes the story come alive.
I have heard all nine books in the series. The story line is so powerful I have turned at least 10 others onto the series and we are so addicted to it. I can't wait for the tenth book. The whole concept is great.
When they shot the band..
Two moments. When Commodore Garrett died, and after the big battle on Walker and they confirmed Chief Grey died.
Thanks for not killing Silva or Lawrence.
