Mikael Naramore has given us another great narration. Mark Cooper continues the saga of war torn humanity in fighting against an alien species. He sets up under stories that will pull fully into the plot in upcoming books. There still is character development taking place which seems to slow the action pace and keep the plot resolution just out of sight. More answers are coming, keep reading:-)

This book, like those that came before, is jam packed with action and intrigue. The narration was excellent. There were plenty of heart pounding battles won and lost, ending in death or worse. There seemed to be more tear provoking moments in this book. It is definitely not an HEA.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audio book by the author, narrator, or publisher.

If you're thinking of listening to this then you must have either read the books or listened to them!
This is far better than the previous book. it presents new characters and completes the circle for other's.
The story arch expands and gives greast depth. it is a long book but when you finish this you simply want more, you need to know what happens to the characters.
A good story resd very well indeed.

I wanted to review each novel as I listened, but felt drawn into going straight to the next and then the next.
This series absolutely enraptured my creative enjoyment from book one all the way to here, and leaves me wishing that the next one comes out sooner rather than later.
It was so enjoyable that it made my work habits whilst listening easier than ever.
All of the different characters who carry the limelight in their own acts in the story are each unique from one another.
They all hark from very different cultural, military, and even species circumstances that make caring for their plights and perspectives interesting and fresh.
I love the description of the technologies used too. It's neither too simple nor too complicated. Each of the technologies is believable and explained simply enough to convey that and build a basic image of how it was built/functions. I feel an error of many sci-fi's is trying too hard to scientifically explain a fictional technology for the sake of the story and bogging the story down in over-the-top details that shake up your suspension of disbelief.
This story does not do that!
Fold Space drives are described incredibly simply, and I love that you essentially don't learn their presumably intricate workings and just know that they do in fact work with variations of power/speed from different vessel classes.
The sense of scale is also wonderful. This series really grasps the idea of how big the galaxy and space is, and the colonies are all so far apart in distance and time that each move feels important.
The only points that troubled me were the descriptions of the Shaan and the Merkiaari, physically I mean.
Over the various scenes with each of them I got the idea about what they looked like, but (unless I wasn't paying sufficient attention at the time) I didn't hear any comprehensively descriptive viewpoint on either of them to clearly paint a picture of them. In saying that, I do know how difficult it can be to accurately describe a creative image of a fictional being without actual images.
One reason why I absolutely love it when an author employs a graphic artist to depict some core elements; worlds, ships, weapons, creatures, in some viewable pages of their novel.
The only other point which I craved during the happening would have been more info/flashback of immediately following the first war about the political, social, and military circumstances that prevented Humanity from weeding out the Merkiaari.
Just from a simple perspective, the dangers of not seeking them out and eradicating them following the first war far outweigh the dangers of not - the series speaks for itself with this new war beginning. But I would like to understand the politics that brought all that to the state it is.
But the few points I didn't like are tiny compared to how much I love this series!
I am certain that once the series is complete, that I will listen to this several more time over the years.
And not to mention how amazing the narration was! Superb!
Rush the next ones out please!! :)
More please now
