Publisher's Summary

Koban: When Empires Collide, Volume 7
The end of the main series:
Under threat of destruction or servitude to the Empire, facing the fleets of the Ragnar, Finth, and Thack Delos, and the larger force of the Thandol, Mirikami prepares the Federation for all-out war. The Planetary Union, allied with the Federation, receives a squadron of new technology Federation Scouts equipped with gravity controlled weapons. They conduct a preemptive strike on a Thandol base. The emperor blames it on the Federation, unaware of the PU's existence, and orders simultaneous attacks.
Mirikami sends teams of Federation Scouts to the Security forces to subvert them. They carry diplomat-soldiers with tough messages. The messages are not well received, and the Kobani must improvise in their typically hostile manner.
Unexpectedly, a mystery silver alien, the Silha, demands a meeting with Mirikami and the Olt'kitapi. It seems there are restrictions for species once they achieve advanced gravity control. The Kobani are told of limits they must obey, or else. To a god-like elevated species, survival of primitives is not their concern, so long as they don't use gravity technology in forbidden ways.
After Security force fleets attack Federation and PU worlds, Mirikami leads a combined fleet against the Thandol Capitol world. He uses a new tactic that bypasses the weapons limits of the Silha. Vastly outnumbered, he faces the Thandol fleet with a great defense.

Koban finale

I really enjoyed this series as a whole. My only wish is that the last few books had the attention to detail and plotting points that the beginning had. There were so many characters at the end that the personal one on one faded a way a bit and with that a tiny bit of my enjoyment. The story got too big maybe? Or needed more books to tell it all? It ended well over all and I was certainly happy with it and it is well worth the adventure if you love Sci-fi. I look forward to what else the authors kicks out.

Truly one of my favorite series

This is one of a handfull of series that stands out clearly among the many out there. It starts with a humanity-ending tragedy and ends victorious on so many levels. I envy readers who can now read the entire series in sequence without the wait between books. This is also one of a few series that I may revisit again. I hope other readers enjoy it as much as I have. Do not judge the entire series by the narration of the first book. I almost did.

Excellent finale

Finishes it off nicely and leaves room for more, and I for one will look out for them.

Brilliant book and series

I picked this series up on an off chance of something new to the usual sci-fi genre. It well lives up to the promise it had in book 1 and I eagerly looked forward to the others books as they came out. Listening to each book over again as the series grew kept me entertained on the drive to and from work. The Koban and especially the Mighty Mite had me laughing out load at their exploits. I look forward to other books by Stephen.
