Publisher's Summary

Four centuries have passed since the end of the alien invasion that almost destroyed humanity. The surviving races, human and alien, now live in peace as allies. But when a terrifying new enemy cuts a path of destruction through the Alliance, there seems little hope of resistance. The situation is desperate, and desperate measures are required. With reluctance, they agree to resurrect a hero from the past, Colonel Mitch Taylor. A mortally wounded man held in suspended animation since the end of the last war. A man who may hold the only key to their survival.
Taylor emerges into a world he no longer recognizes. A new alien race lives among them, a race he does not trust. Society, the Marine Corps, even the way he speaks, nothing fits this new life. Many in the Alliance refuse to accept him, for Taylor is an icon of a bygone era. Respected by some, hated by many. Isolated, alone, regarded as little more than a relic of a past era, he must accept the horror of knowing his old life is gone. He must also overcome the new enemy that stands before him, an enemy that wants nothing more than to destroy all known life in the universe.

Captivating Military Sci-Fi Adventure

Excellent progressively staged action.
Not recommended for children under 17 due to language.
Main character portrayed as how fighting Marines actually are.
Any other statement would be a spoiler because of storyline being so well laid.

A lady's bridge club is placed on a starship.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

An understanding of military service would help. A ship's captain (or commodore) does not spend time explaining his actions to his subordinates. Nor does he (or she) admonish his crew to pay attention to their duties.

Would you ever listen to anything by Nick S. Thomas again?


Which scene was your favorite?

I could only listen to about 10 minutes of this. Since I love scifi, I am normally very forgiving.
