Publisher's Summary

An unstoppable force is headed toward Earth with weapons far beyond humanity’s capabilities.

The Solar Republic of Earth faces imminent destruction at the hands of the maniacal Collectors. In a desperate bid to stop them, Commander Tag Brewer leads a strike group of SRE warships deep into enemy territory. They seek to strike a devastating blow and free the countless beings who have been enslaved by the Collectors. But Tag fears they may be headed into a trap.

Complicating their mission, they discover an alien race that may be even deadlier than the Collectors. Tag and his crew soon find themselves mired in a vicious conflict beyond anything they had anticipated.

And it is not just Tag and his strike group whose lives are in jeopardy. The outcome of this conflict will determine the fate of humanity and every other free race.

Tag must call on old and new allies if the SRE has any chance of survival in this thrilling conclusion to the Eternal Frontier series.

Meh... and anticlimactic

The series wasn’t bad early on. But, I feel like it got progressively worse, with new species introduced that just weren’t believable and that didn’t add much. The non-human survived were all so much smarter, yet they couldn’t seem to accomplish much. Then, with a couple hours left in the book, the humans just happen to come up with a plan... there was no special worth required, nothing special they had to accomplish first. It makes you wonder why they had the earlier books... why not just skip all that and then defeat the enemy? It just didn’t flow well.

Great series!

The story seems to be concluded but maybe another book? I really enjoyed the series and the characters. The betrayal at the end was so unexpected. Tag really had a talent for winning people over to his side. I hope that alpha is back up and running maybe with upgrades. Hopefully the planets are going to unite and become a alliance sharing technology.

Disappointment

The fifth book was a disappointment, the story was disjointed and rushed. The narrators voices were annoying.

Ive found more entertainment from Dr Seuss!!

This series is predictable, and childish. Bottom line is it is pathetic for a space opera, mil/scifi type story. This author seems to write stories like his readers are mentally challenged! It is abominable. Plus the author is not good at communicating his ideas and mental thoughts, images, and what not through written language so the reader will perceive what the book is saying. This wanna be author writes a bunch dribble, uses some theoretical tech and magic words, throw in a character name or two and he calls it a book. How can you readers give this garbage 5 stars? Those that do should stick to crayons and coloring books. It is more your speed.

This series is the best SciFy story, narrative, adventure, action, romance written in this century in my opinion. Thank you to the writer, narrator, and Amazon.

Surprisingly captivating

I love books with mystery, action, adventure, unpredictable story lines and fantastic endings. This entire series satisfied every interest all rolled up together and Hasting did a fine job bring it to life. My emotions were touched as I laughed out loud, my heart raced, and I cried wipeable tears at times. First time listening to any of his writings and I’m excited to start another. Melchiorri has taken place among my greatest list of authors.

this was the best of a great series

Enjoyed all of the books of the saga and this final chapter was perhaps the best. Creative and fast pace with each character carefully brought to live with vivid detail.
The narration was brilliant.

Good finish

I listened to the entire series this last month and really enjoyed it. This was a great wrap up book filled with interesting twist and turns and a solid conclusion.

The least good of the series

I felt the story lacked the excitement this series of books began as.
it's started as an adventure into the unknown, but stalls and returned to the beginning all rather lazily.
