This is book nine in the Frontier Saga. I have enjoyed the series so far. I like to read new authors and sometimes like with Ryk Brown, I find a winner.

The last book ended in a cliff hanger. In this book, Brown covers some of the subplots from the prior books and covers each in this book. Brown covers what is happening on the Aurora and the Celestia. At the end of the last book, Lt. Commander Jessica Nash had completed a free fall entry to Earth and now we follow her exploits. The Celestia is an unfinished ship without weapons. She has been instructed to hide and wait for instructions. The Aurora is in critical need of fuel so Captain Nathan Scott attempts to find the resistance fighters on Tanna that helped two of his men escape the Jung and get back to Aurora. He is hoping they can help him find fuel. Captain Scott also needs to come up with a plan to defeat the Jung and take back Earth. The ending of this book came upon me suddenly and left me with a cliff hanger.

Brown is turning into an excellent storyteller. The characters are growing with each book and more new ones are added and some are lost. The suspense builds continuously and the story is action packed. The jump drive continues to work and has saved them many times. The crew is now made up of people from several different worlds and they are all working together successfully.

Jeffrey Kafer does an excellent job narrating the story. Kafer is a voiceover artist and a multi-award winning audiobook narrator.

Great Character Development

High praise for book 9 as it delivers continued character development and an interesting storyline that moves the novels in an interesting direction. Getting to know Nathan's father was a nice touch here as well.
