Publisher's Summary

Following the bloody war between the Athenian Republic and the Pruessen Empire, an uneasy peace has settled over the region of space known as The Tunguska Fault.
The Telford family's independent trading vessel, the Belinda, is captured by Pruessen slavers and the crew forced into a life of brutal servitude. Their desperate bid for freedom succeeds but a tragic price is paid.
Years pass and Nathan Telford, fighting the nightmares of his past and yearning for revenge, joins the Athenian Navy. His first posting is aboard the warship Truculent, patrolling the northern quarantine zone beyond which lurks the Empire.
Answering a distress call from a beleaguered freighter, the routine mission becomes a desperate fight for survival. The Pruessans are once again testing the defenses of the Republic and this time they have technology far in advance of the last war.
It is left to Nathan, three untried middies, and a disgruntled petty officer to try and avert a looming disaster.
With their high-tech weapons rendered useless and facing overwhelming odds, Nathan risks everything on a brave, hastily conceived gamble.

What does Keith Michaelson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He really brought the story to life.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

This book is really a 4.5. I wish we could do half ratings. Love books that can bring out all the emotions while including tons of action. I received this audiobook for free through Audiobook Boom for my unbiased review.

A very good read

Wow just wow! Nicely done. Way to go on the why the main character is so driven and doing it in such a manner as to drive it home but refrain from being too graphic and leave some of it to the readers imagination. I look forward to listening to more of this series and any other books.
