Publisher's Summary

Nate and his friends in Ironclad Squadron are returning to the fleet when they detect a mysterious signal. Sensing a trap, Colonel Gun sends Nate out alone in his captured fighter to scout the source. The signal is emitting from inside the heart of the abandoned Kalar Anchorage. This massive facility was once the Byotai Empire's greatest shipyard, but now it lies cold and lifeless. Or does it? Upon arrival Nate runs headlong into the center of a fierce battle. On one side are the numerous forces of the insidious Orion Interstellar Empire. On the other, the powerful attack cruisers of the Byotai outlaw, Warlord Katanga.
Kalar Anchorage has become a refuge for the lost and the damned. The former facility is populated by displaced people and wounded soldiers that have fought, and lost against Star Empire incursions. As well as the exhausted crews of a number of ships. Yet the forces of Katanga, though weakened by the fighting, still wish vengeance upon those that seek their utter annihilation. Katanga's desire for further violence may come earlier than expected. An entire fleet along with numerous ground forces has entered the system, and they will not leave until every defender is dead or captured. With no time to fully abandon the station, the preliminary skirmishes erupt into a major battle. The last stronghold that stands between the Orion Interstellar Empire and the hastily mobilized fleets of the Alliance. The Siege of Kalar has begun.

Another Space Thriller

This is a great series for those who don't like a lot of complex science, hard to follow story lines, dozens of different characters, or drawn-out discussion. These books are relatively simple but great for someone who just wants to listen to military space sci-fi without all of the fluff.
This was another great Star Crusader book full of action, space battles, romance... and did I mention action?

I really would not start with this book. I think the reader will be lost without the backstory that leads up to this point. The others are just as good though.

The narrator for this series is quite good. He has a good pace, tone, and is exactly the right voice type for the main character.

I requested and received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, publisher, or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. I was NOT required to write a positive review and this reflects my honest opinion of the work.

Hard to follow if you haven't read the other books

I got this book because Andrew Wehrlen narrated it. It was a good book, I enjoyed it. It did start off somewhat slow. It's supposed to be a stand alone story but you really do need the background from the series to understand it. Otherwise it's hard to follow.

I have other books narrated by Andrew Wehrlen, I really love how he brings the books to life. Great performance.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
