Publisher's Summary

Five hundred years ago, when Earth was invaded and forcibly integrated by the Alphan Empire, the human race discovered it was not alone in the universe.

Over the years, humans have grown used to their position within the empire, serving as soldiers and spacers for alien masters as well as building a place in the universe for themselves. But now, in the aftermath of a violent interstellar war that shattered the power of the Alphans, humanity has rediscovered its pride.

Humanity wants to be free.

Facing a war they will lose even if they win, the Alphans give humanity its independence once again. Humanity stands alone in a hostile universe, facing alien threats that regard humans as nothing more than servants or weaklings; easy meat for armed conquest. If the human race cannot learn to stand on its own two feet without its masters, it will rapidly discover that it has traded one set of masters for another. If they lose the coming war, all hope of independence will die with it.

absolutely awful, the same voice for everybody

I don't know if it was the performance of the story but this was god-awful boring, you couldn't sink into any character cuz a guy didn't use character voices. pretty sure I've heard this dude do other books on tape I don't know what went wrong here This is a complete piece of dirt

Could have been great ,good story line but

The author went way to far in talking about how people we’re thinking about things and then took it over the edge , you kept saying to yourself give it a rest.the main story line is ok
And normally I like this author .

Really good story.

This is a book designed to set up the future stories.
This is a well made story with long world building and a lot of exposition. The exposition is done well and doesn’t feel like a lecture or that the characters are stupid.
There are times when there did feel like there was more information given then necessary. The slow pace of the first half of the book strikes badly with the rapid pace of the second half. I would have liked to see a steady acceleration to the rapid fire action at the end. There felt like a gap in the middle of the story. Maybe the middle was edited out? It didn’t feel bad just the ending felt rushed. Again not bad but it could have been better.
Overall a good book with little to critique.

Good solid space opera

Entertaining overall. However, almost every action one of the characters takes is preceded by an exhaustive review of the options/scenarios open to happening. These "reviews" often take more time up than the event.

Galaxy on fire wanna be

This is a wannabe book stylised from the famous galaxy on fire. It’s a shame as it could have been more original but alas no
