Publisher's Summary

For years, the alien Klikiss robots have pretended to be humanity's friends, but their seeming "help" allowed them to plant an insidious Trojan Horse throughout the Earth Defense Forces. Now, in the aftermath of a devastating war, swarms of ancient black robots built by the lost insectoid Klikiss race continue their depredations on helpless worlds with stolen and heavily armed Earth battleships.Among the humans, the Hansas' brutal Chairman struggles to crush any resistance, even as King Peter breaks away to form his own new Confederation among the colonies who have declared their independence.And meanwhile, the original, voracious Klikiss race, long thought to be extinct, has returned, intent on conquering their former worlds and willing to annihilate anyone in the way.

Good but could have been better

This book and the series is very interesting and an entertaining story. There are some implausabilities that could have been done better but if you look beyond that and just enjoy it is good stuff.

I much preffered George Guidell's reading in the first 3 books. This narrator is a little over dramatic in the read.

And also why cant new narrators in series ever listen to the way the first ones were read so the names are at least consistent?

A good Yarn, but Steven J. Baxter he is not.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the series quite a bit but, as I've stated before, if you're the type who likes Hard Sci-Fi then you will find parts of these books highly annoying. More Fiction than Science. It's easy enough to overlook, given the overall fun of the story, but it can be eye rolling when Anderson completely ignores some of the fundamental laws of the universe without so much as a Star Trekian technobabble to make it seem even slightly plausabe.
