Publisher's Summary

A predator hunts the skies over Earth. Its intent is peaceful, and its mission is essential, but it is the deadliest machine humanity has ever created.
Piloted by a six-year-old girl, the godlike Skalm guards the Districts of TASC. Her family is long dead. Her adopted father is a synthetic copy of an alien, her nanny an artificial mind connected via subspace to every part of the globe, feeding the young girl information, finding prey to satiate her growing thirst.
But the young girl is an innocent, a victim, one of millions the war has already claimed. Her innocence has been sacrificed by a man with singular purpose: a man who will stop at nothing in order to prepare Earth for the coming conflict.
The armada is approaching, its far-off engines now bright as stars in the night sky. They mean to kill us. They have the power to do so. And as oblivion's maw opens up to engulf us, we brace ourselves for battle.
We will fight to the last. Live or die, we will leave a scar upon our attackers that will last an age, even if we ourselves do not.

An OK end to an otherwise great trilogy.

Any additional comments?

One book has to be the worst of the 3. This one's it. Be warned, its painfully slow & hard to get through. The book can be edited from 20 hours to about 5 and still tell the same story - a lot of nothing happens. Also the author did not make me dislike the people who (I think) you are suppose to dislike by the end of the story. Their end seemed unfitting and I was actually still on their side... If you already read the first 2 than, of course, you have to read this... I found it a little disappointing; hopefully you like it better than I did.

This makes me question Audible

I really can't add much that the other detailed reviews has already covered. This installment was a jumbled mess that read more like a first draft outline than a finished work. The first two books were great and it made the third book that much more disappointing. But this book is getting a 4.5 star average review while most of the active reviewers are mostly negative. That makes me question Audibles star review system. Most of the people that read this book and were into this series would have acknowledged this poor offering by Moss. It makes me think that Audible is infested by bots that give good reviews to keep poor books viable to potential readers. Nobody new to the series is going to start the first book if they see that the series drops off at the end. So to sell the series they prop up a bad book.

Starts well, disappointing end

A must read if you've started the Fear saga. Finding out what happened to Earth and the characters was good. However the book went on and on about somewhat irrelevant scenes. The ending was also disappointing. Having built the armada's arrival for three whole books I was left feeling underwhelmed. That said, the book was performed well and all three books kept up my interest.

Too many loose ends and not enough 'ending'.....

A little disapointed considering the first two book were actually very good indeed. The third book was the length of the first two combioned and really felt it. I found myself skipping whole chapters because the story continued to focus heavily on areas that didn't really add any value apart from padding the story out. I'm glad I did as the end was, as others have said, very anti-climactic.
I wont spoil it but there were whole chapters and many hours building up tech and characters only to find them simply unnecessary in the end. In fact one minor side story line ended up being the surprise big ending. There were simply too many loose ends from too many cul-de-sacs and the story... just ended. There was an attempt to wrap it all up but it and I felt empty and that I'd wasted a alot of time paying attention to detailed story lines and significant characters that ended up eitehr going nowhere, simply not being completed or just ignored.
However the whole series was worth the listen and I did enjoy the whole; just not the thrid book and ending.

Fear it wouldn't end

Definitely too long, lots of parts that became confusing too. I enjoyed the first two books but I couldn't wait for this book to end.

Worth reading for the conclusion.

The first book in the trilogy was pretty good. Second book was good but heading in a bit of a strange direction. The third (this book) was the least good of the bunch. Worth it to find out the conclusion but... I was unsatisfied with the ending. This book is kind of like the frayed end of a rope rather than a definitive knot. Many lose, messy endings. It felt a bit rushed and lacking. But that said, the series as a whole is well worth reading. Well done on creating a page turner!
