Augustus Garret needed time. Time for repairs, time to replace losses, time to learn how to go on in the aftermath of what he’d done. But the fleet wasn’t heading for a well-deserved rest…they were moving into another firestorm. A new menace, one as deadly as the First Imperium, was waiting for them, and it threatened to shatter the fragile alliance of the Earth powers and throw all of human space into another desperate war…one that might be the final confrontation.
On world after world, mysterious forces are invading, taking control of the most vital colonies. The invaders are well-drilled powered infantry, veteran forces that quickly shattered the planetary militias and established brutal occupation regimes.
Garret, Cain, and the leaders of the Alliance’s forces must rally themselves once again to face this new threat…an unknown enemy that is as well trained, experienced, and equipped as the Marines themselves. Indeed, on some colony worlds rumors are already spreading that the invaders are the Marines themselves, that they have come to conquer, to rule…

Twists and turns, clones, the rich, the poor treated without empathy.
The book develops as though Horaatio Nelson, Dickens, Heinlein , the Scrarlette Pimpernell, the Marquis de Sade , Eugene Sledge and John Basilone collaboratied with Mr. Allan on the same novel.
It is fair to say it does not bore. What am I going to do with the rest of my life when I finish reading the series.

It's gotten old :(
This is the last book in the series I'll listen to, it's just gotten too old. Same old stuff.
Does Allan really have to spend all the time he does writing about the same self doubt? The torment that comes with sending troops into battle and having them die? Cut all that out, and I think the book would be cut in half, and still have the same feeling, and a shorter story that may not have bored me.
