Publisher's Summary

War has ravaged the Protective Federation for decades. Millions have died. Millions more live in fear. The time to strike back at the enemy is near. But when Chief Admiral Fedrin is wrongfully accused of destroying dozens of their own warships and defecting, the fate of the Federation is anything but certain. Fedrin is forced to flee his home world with a handful of ships and loyal crews in search of answers and revenge. His journey is fraught with perils and Fedrin soon realizes that he is the key to unlocking a great secret--a secret which never should have been forgotten.

Star Trek meets Star Trek and a little Lost Fleet

I've never reviewed before, but I saw someone say on here about it being a creationist book. More like ancient astronauts or alien origin. That's a common Sci fi theme... The crazy thing is, the overall plot seems to be very similar to Star Trek Next Gen episodes: "Conspiracy" and "The Chase." But, I guess Star Trek is kinda like the Simpsons of Sci-Fi, they've done everything.

Most of the space battles were pretty one sided, not in the way you'd expect. And as with a lot of TV style Sci-Fi, "don't ask, don't tell" when it comes to the science. Don't expect Larry Niven or Asimov. But, like all my favorite TV and movie Sci-Fi, it's a guilty pleasure and it's not trying to pass itself off as hard SF, at least I hope it isn't. Otherwise, I'd remove a couple stars. LOL

Narration was good. A bunch of different character voices, which I like. I will listen to the sequel when it comes out. It sounds Like Tarken is going to kick some alien as$ or punch it 6 times.

Great story... very original

What did you like about this audiobook? The story is original, which is rare for sci-fi. If you're a fan of the genre you should check it out.

How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter? I love sci-fi and this one was no different. World building is always the bane of sci-fi and the author does so in a unique way that doesn't feel like you're being forced to read a textbook on the world, races, planets, transport, etc...

Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this? The strong themes throughout the book manifest in every character's story arc in a different way.

What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance? The pacing was a little slow at times, but otherwise it was great. Excellent voices that really nail the characters in my opinion.

Do you have any additional comments? Next book?? I thought that the ending was a bit of a cliffhanger personally. Great work...
