Publisher's Summary

The aggressive invaders from another galaxy cannot be stopped. The Composite keeps capturing system after system wiping out everything in its path, and there is no sign of a force capable of standing up to it.

In the search for allies, Gnat embarks on a long journey aimed at uniting the various branches of the human race. And though the potential for alliance is there, how can he convince them to set off to fight a suicidal war with such a disastrous balance of forces?

Beyond that, things aren't as easy as they initially seemed with the humans from the far-off Empire, and they have a compelling reason not to enter this war which does not concern them. There's also the status of sole ruler of humanity at stake, which is not the kind of achievement that can be shared.

And that means one of the human leaders will have to back down.

I enjoyed it.

As a general rule, I think it’s a bad habit but I will not write reviews. But, I like this book I’ve enjoyed all eight of them so far. Was not a big fan of perimeter defense but this book series is way better in my opinion.

If you got to book 8 I think you already know what to expect. So enjoy the next installment of Nat the listener.

NEVER BEFORE!

I have been a follower of this series for a while now. I am used to cliff hangers and really we all should be since that is the MO of the entertainment industry. But NEVER BEFORE have I been this excited for the next book in the series. Someone not familiar with the author would probably think that Gnat had himself a Royal Flush. But i know the author. While Gnats new acquisition might be a powerful game changer and might make him a force to be reckoned with. I am sure things won't go that smoothly.

Worth the Extra Listen to Perimeter Defense

Check out the other series offered by the author for better context and world building, it's well worth the extra time. It's fun to see how Mr. Atamanov tied the two universes together, and the follow through sets up a new expansion to one of my favorite stories. Good stuff

Loving the series!!!

I had already gotten this in hardcopy, but have been waiting for this release in audio format.

I am done and already can't wait for the next book!

With the next book in the series, setup to be key pivotal point in the larger story, a larger book release would be really perfect.

why are all your books short

seriously I think it is time to start combining two books. we wait forever for a new book to be greeted by a short half finished book that's been split into two for profit. I get this is a practice nowadays but I feel like if elden ring has taught us anything it's that ppl love a complete product you don't see Rowling out here peddling days at Hogwarts no it is a year at a time.

Another great installment.

Gnat has another great adventure! I love this series because there are always more things happening, interesting places to go, political intrigue, unexpected twists and all kinds of great references to classic sci-fi books and films.
If you haven't gotten into this series yet then start at book one, you won't regret it!
