Publisher's Summary

A terrible discovery. A secret that could destroy human civilization. A desperate escape to the most dangerous planet in the universe - Earth.

Two hundred years ago, a fleet of colony ships left Earth and started a settlement on Proxima Centauri. 

Centurion Space Force pilot Nathan Stacker didn't expect to return home to find his wife dead. He didn't expect the murderer to look just like him, and he definitely didn't expect to be the one to take the blame. But his wife had control of a powerful secret. A secret that stretches across the light years between two worlds and could lead to the end of both.

Now that secret is in Nathan's hands, and he's about to make the most desperate evasive maneuver of his life - stealing a starship and setting a course for Earth. He thinks he'll be safe there. He's wrong. Very wrong.

Earth is nothing like what he expected. Not even close. What he doesn't know is not only likely to kill him, it's eager to kill him, and even if it doesn't?

The Sheriff will.

Half a story.

I would pay for the whole book if they would just offer it that way.
At best this so called book just sets up the story that is to come.

Light On Plot

The narration was very good. There was a lot of action in the book which is something I like but there was very little plot. Honestly I'm not sure if I'll try one just don't know if the action alone is enough.

Great book

Excellent story, listened to about 370 scifi books and this is one is among the better ones. Worth every $/credit 👍

Disappointingly Juvenile.

2 dimensional tough guy protagonist.

Stilted dialog.

Generic and endless action movie set pieces.

It's like one of those Netflix original movies so bad the algorithm burried that no one ever watches.

I really like this.

It's been a hard go finding a new series to listen to in between waiting on others I know I like. This story is great so far. Just what I needed.

Really enjoyed this book

I'm loving the forgotten series by MR Forbes. Love how the author has created the forgotten universe. I'm driving now So I will edit And add later.

Sheriff Duke is a total badass, his adventure and fight against the general and liberators, along with Nathan is getting better and better. regarding Nathan, the Stacker from Prime, he has his own motivations and conflicts that he's always overcoming.
