Publisher's Summary

Nick Seafort returned to Earth expecting a court-martial, but instead he's tapped by the naval academy. This is no ordinary desk job.... Luck has always run in both directions for Naval Commandant Nicholas Seafort. While he has managed to save the Hope Nation colony from alien attack, he and his friends have paid a heavy price. Most recently his exploits have earned him a dignified position as an instructor at the United Nations Naval Academy. But as Seafort suspects, trouble isn't far behind. A return to Earth means a return to his roots, some of which he wishes would remain buried. He's uncomfortable with fame and can't always restrain his temper as the political machine shifts around him. But when the fishlike aliens mount an attack, Seafort is the only man Earth can count on. Now he must decide whether he has the courage and fortitude to make a terrible choice....

Still hating Seafort.

Tried to give this series another chance. Seafort still whining and abusing subordinates.

Wonderful riff on the Horatio Hornblower theme

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I have many times over, along with the admonishment to first read C.S. Forrester's Horatio Hornblower, and then Weber's Honor Harrington after this saga. For this particular volume I had them a proper pronunciation guide as well (see below).

Outside of the basis in Naval tradition, standing for what is right at any cost, this saga elegantly provides us with an exemplification of the qualities we all want to see in our heroes. Setting aside, word for word this is ripping good entertainment.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Nick, of course. It's the evolution of the character's story all the way through to Children of Hope that makes his saga that much more endearing.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Vikas does phenomenal work giving unique voice to each of the characters, and continues that throughout all of his narration of the Seafort Saga. HOWEVER: Good Lord Man, it's "[truh-fal-ger}" NOT "[trahy-fuh l] [gar]"!!!!11one Trafalgar is repeated so many times in this particular volume, hearing it mispronounced over and over caused many a shouting bout in the car as I drove to or from work. Whomever was in charge of Quality Assurance after the fact needs a drubbing too. And it's "[trip-uh-lee]" NOT BLOODY "[tip-oh-lee]". The Libyians would appreciate it if we could get their Capital pronounced correctly as well.I've heard after-the-fact voice overs in other productions, why not here? Someone needs to get on the ball!If it weren't for the repeated and frequent mispronunciations, I'd have given the performance 5 stars. Otherwise, capitol effort Vikas!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

It has to be the climax near the end - not giving it away should this be published - when one commits to give all they have as well as the all of others for the ultimate in sacrifices and then to have the need swept away by circumstances. Numbingly good read that.

Any additional comments?

Do us all a favor - overdub the many mispronunciations so that we don't feel cheated for keeping these in our digital libraries.

Love the story

loved the story and I've read it a few times before. The narrator really annoyed me by mispronouncing a lot of words.
