Publisher's Summary

Defy the inevitable. Such is the stance of Confederation captain Eric Weston and the crew of the starship Odysseus, patrolling the outer limits of Priminae space, anticipating the Empire's next attacks. Connected with the Terran FTL tech - the transition drive - humanity might stand a chance against the overwhelming forces. Until the entire planetary system goes dark.
Outnumbered and outgunned, the Odysseus arrives to find the Empire securing critical intelligence from Priminae ships - data that could prove disastrous in the wrong hands.
As the Odysseus enters the fray, the ship's systems exhibit increasingly chaotic glitches, while haunting apparitions stalk the crew. As they struggle to control their own ship - and their sanity - against the tide of battle, how can they hope to grasp victory when the Odysseus itself appears to be coming to life?

Doesn't move the plot forward

Any additional comments?

I wish the story arc would move forward. I like the author's ability to describe the battles well but it's too much. 7 out of the 9 hours of this book is one single battle that almost doesn't move the story forward. I would prefer swifter battles (I don't need every single move of every character described). I almost dread it now. The previous book was two giant battles. Even that is too slow. Battles add action but slow down story pacing.

Otherwise the narration is fine, although I noticed different pronunciation of some stuff and I preferred the narrator of the original 3 books as the captains tone changed quite a lot for example. If this narrator was the one narrating from the beginning, I would have no complains probably.

Narrator has a nagging voice

I almost stopped listening because of the narrator 's voice but I persisted because I had enjoyed reading previous books. If the next in the series has the same narrator, I will read that book, not listen to it.

Great experience.

Very good book - I like this universe, well designed characters and interesting plot. This book add not so much in the term of pushing story farther in this universe but rather adds more resolution / details to this universe - I think this is to prepare for more story in the next book :). Overall very good audio book - light and pleasant story, very good to unwind.
