Publisher's Summary

Humanity has reached the stars, joining the vast galactic community of alien species. But beyond the fringes of explored space lurk the Reapers, a race of sentient starships bent on "harvesting" the galaxy's organic species for their own dark purpose. The Illusive Man, leader of the pro-human black ops group Cerberus, is one of the few who know the truth about the Reapers. To ensure humanity's survival, he launches a desperate plan to uncover the enemy's strengths---and weaknesses---by studying someone implanted with modified Reaper technology. He knows the perfect subject for his horrific experiments: former Cerberus operative Paul Grayson, who wrested his daughter from the cabal's control with the help of Ascension project director Kahlee Sanders. But when Kahlee learns that Grayson is missing, she turns to the only person she can trust: Alliance war hero Captain David Anderson.
Together they set out to find the secret Cerberus facility where Grayson is being held. But they aren't the only ones after him. And time is running out. As the experiments continue, the sinister Reaper technology twists Grayson's mind. The insidious whispers grow ever stronger in his head, threatening to take over his very identity and unleash the Reapers on an unsuspecting galaxy.

Good sequel to a great series.

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

Yes, In my opinion this is the weakest book in the series, but does have important information in it to continue Kahlee's story. The beginning of the book was great, but it felt like it dragged on towards the end.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I would have liked to see Graysons struggle with the reapers come to an end by Grayson overpowering them one last time in a glorious burst of pure will to protect the ones he loves. His struggle with the reapers was painful enough to go through, this would have been an excellent ending.

What about David Colacci’s performance did you like?

David really captures every character perfectly. They are just how I imagined them.

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

I really enjoyed two major parts of the story. One is the invasion of Cerberus by the Turians. that was incredible to experience. The other was Paul Graysons struggle with the Reapers. The sheer will of graysons unforgiving attitude towards them really put things into perspective.

Any additional comments?

Overall a good read. The story in my opinion dragged on towards the end, but the main bulk of the story was incredible. A must read for the series.

Read if you like action and Mass Effect

If you like the Mass Effect universe and want a bit more it's worth a read but doesn't dive too deep into it. Gives more insight into Cerberus, the illusive man and their experiments on humans and a few of the side characters. Its a decent fast pace quick read action thriller but hard to recommend if you not familiar with the Mass Effect lore. Good conclusion to the trilogy
