Publisher's Summary

The final battle has begun...

Gavin Stark, the former head of Alliance Intelligence, and the bitter nemesis of the Marine Corps, has made his bid for power. The manufactured clone soldiers of his Shadow Legions have seized control of dozens of colony worlds, imposing his brutal rule over millions of colonists. His plan is no less than to subjugate all mankind under his iron fist.

On Earth, Stark's manipulations have brought the Superpowers to the brink of war, threatening the Treaty of Paris and its prohibition against terrestrial warfare. For a century, man had restricted his wars to space, but now the Powers are sliding closer to the brink...the final battle that could kill billions, and turn Earth into a wasteland.

On a few key colony worlds, Erik Cain, Elias Holm, and the remnants of the shattered Marine Corps struggle against Stark's vast armies...the only hope of turning back the tide of destruction and despair that threatens to engulf all mankind. They are outnumbered and outgunned, but they will fight nevertheless, standing grimly in the breach, holding back Stark and his dark legions.

The Marines will give their all, fight with the last of their strength and resolve. But this time the cost will be too high to bear, too personal. Even Marines need their heroes, their legends. But even legends die.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

More description to allow the listener to follow the thread of the story.

What was most disappointing about Jay Allan’s story?

This books seems to be put together in a haphazard manner. It is difficult to follow the story. It seems to be one battle after another with no common thread. The reader's selection of voices for each character is strangely disconcerting. The voices just don't seem to fit the characters.
