Publisher's Summary

The only way forward is farther back into an alien past…

Military special operators battling across the multiverse. Present-day fighter pilots thrust into space combat. Both teams waging an all-or-nothing war to reset an altered timeline.

Still trapped decades in the past, Vaughn and his band of military pilots and SAS special operators battle the Necks across the multiverse, now wielding powerful new allies and weapons, but the enemy robots refuse to go peacefully into the night. Attacking dirtside and spaceside simultaneously, both teams fight to flip the fortunes of battle because there's only one answer when the question is them or us.

Fortitude pits advanced alien warships, secret weapons, brave heroes, and a smart-assed battlebot against a mechanized enemy bent on destroying all life.

Critic Reviews

"Like 'The Martian' on (and above) Earth. An epic survival story with very human characters, clever problem-solving and a gripping mystery. The end left me with NO IDEA where Dean was going with the story, I couldn't wait for the next book."—Craig Alanson, New York Times bestselling author of the Expeditionary Force series

A worthy entry for the series.

I've read (and listened to) the entire series and thoroughly enjoyed every book. This was no exception.

Giving ol' R.C. a workout

Mr. Bray has voiced: A couple of Scottish me, An Australian woman, A British man, A couple of South Africans, 2 robots, a handful of various Americans to include a Texan, an erudite MIT female, an erudite Naval officer, a French Lobster (never thought that would come up in a book review), a few well named aliens, and his own voice in the postscript. And did it like he was actually several people. Each person he voiced had something unique and distinctive. Well done.
As this is a book review and not an audition for the R.C. Bray fan club, I will talk about that for a bit.
My feeble mind has trouble keeping characters straight in most books, so I do enjoy this medium much more the paper and ink type.
The Story is a bit over my head with the multi-dimensional physics, but the wit, humor and characters are extremely well written. As this is not the first of Mr. Cole's books, I have listened to it still surprises me how it is not the same generic tropes rewritten in a slightly different way. The author has a future with this writing thing.
Well done, can't wait for the next one

Loved it!

I can't get enough of this series! I'd love to see it made into a TV series although it wouldn't be as good without the voice of R.C. Bray! Can't wait for the next book!

Wow just wow


Dean has brought us another book from this awesome series yet again with many cliffhangers, plenty of questions answered from the previous books and now he has left us with way too many more questions that leave us scratching our heads again. His story telling is amazing and each chapter leaves you wanting to read on and find the answers you have been craving for but as a good writer he leaves you hanging out there pondering what will come next and will these story lines be answered in the finial book.
And of course, this will be brought to life when R.C. Bray brings his powerful voice to the audible version.
