Publisher's Summary

The great debate is over. The human race has rejected the idea of pulling back from the stars and hiding on Earth in the hope the Broa will overlook us for a few more generations. Instead, the World Parliament, by a 60-40 vote, has decided to throw the dice and go for a win. Parliament Hall resounds with brave words as members declare victory inevitable. With the balance of forces a million to one against Homo sapiens' Terra, those who must turn patriotic speeches into hard-won reality have their work cut out for them. They must expand humanity's foothold in Broan space while contending with a supply line that is 7,000 light-years long.
If the sheer magnitude of the task isn't enough, Mark and Lisa Rykand discover they are in a race against two very different antagonists. The Broa are beginning to wonder at the strange two-legged interlopers in their domain; while back on Earth, those who lost the great debate are eager to try again. Whoever wins the race will determine the future of the human species... or, indeed, whether it has one.

Book 3 the last book, but more could be written

This is the last book at the time of this review (4-29-13) but the way it ends there could be a few more, these 3 books feel like a prequel for something really huge latter on and I hope the author writes them.

The debate is over and the Humans are going to war with the Broa, its just not a normal war since the Broa dont really know that the Humans exist for sure but it will become something they are aware of soon - the only Broan to meet a Human is the one who was found on the ship in book 1 and hes not talking to any other Broa.

The way this book ends is sorta strange I thought there would be more to the story, its not like it ends incorrectly but it does end in such a way that you want to know more, what happens next sorta of thing. I don't want to give anything away here but really Humans and Broan never meet in battle like I was expecting but the way it plays out is really good - but like I said I hope the author writes more books that go into the aftermath of the end of this book.

This is highly recommended if you like space opera style books, this one not really long enough and not galaxy spanning as most space operas are like Peter F Hamilton or Alastair Reynolds but its up there.

A satisfying conclusion to the trilogy

With all 3 books i felt that the middle was a little dragged out but the second half always built up to a satisfying climax. I wish authors of series would completely skip the unnecessary repetition of the main plot line they feel readers need to hear again in order to keep up with the story. We're not that stupid. I most enjoy series with little or no repetition such as the Game of Thrones or the the Passage by Justin Cronin; what a joy to zip along with the plot without the fillers of dragged out recaps. Back to the Gibraltar Stars - once the plot recaps were over and the story picked up pace, the conclusion to the series was highly sanctifying. Performance was OK, but not at the level of top narrators.
