Publisher's Summary

A terrible massacre was uncovered...did the same fate befall Sumer?

Captain Brian Royce brings Hadad to his home planet, which shows obvious signs of battle. Did any of his family survive? Where are all the children; did the Zodarks take them?

Admiral Miles Hunt finds himself appointed to a new position beyond his current skill set. He now has to become more than just a ship captain and fleet commander: he must become the Viceroy of the Milky Way Galaxy.

On Alpha Centauri, an archaeology team makes a discovery that sends shockwaves through the Republic - a discovery so profound it could cause a division and a potential split within the alliance.

The newly deployed Second Republic Army Group on the planet Intus finds itself the vanguard of the alliance’s efforts to liberate the remaining Primord planets. As the Zodark forces are continually pushed back, the alliance edges closer to bringing the war to the enemies’ core worlds.

Can Miles Hunt become the leader humanity needs him to become? And will the Second Republic Army Group survive a gruesome battle on a frozen planet?

I should have stopped at book 3.

It seems like they spend more time introducing characters without developing the plot line with the advances of the story. The spacebattles seems to be put into the background which was a shame because that's what really hooked me on the 1st 2 books.

Origins

This is is a most interesting take about the origins of our species. The mystery expands from one star system, and beyond.

Engrossing

Still loving this story! Super captivating and a cool take! I feel like he could keep this universe going and going. Read a lot of sci-fi and I can’t put my finger on but this story, in particular, has just hooked me more than most!

Quality is falling, but still worth listening to

The writing is clearly repetitive now. The characters aren’t getting any additional depth, they’re just a window through which to tell the overarching story. It’s starting to read like a military history instead of a novel. I’ll probably finish the series because the story is fun, but the series has lost a lot of its appeal.

Where is this going?

This series doesn’t feel like it’s really going anywhere. There are a lot of subplots that don’t really tie together. What does the Gaelic Outpost have to do with the AI “Gift”? What does the “Gift” have to do with the origins of humanity? How are these disconnected things moving the plot towards some conclusion?

There are also a ton of flaws in the story line. Hunt became the Grand Puba because he pushed for a more aggressive approach. What does he do as Grand Puba? Puts a freeze on new moves while he pulls dullest tool of of an new, mediocre CEO’s tool kit - the Dreaded Major Reorg.

I know that the 6th book is on its way for print release in July. If I get a clear sense that it will be the end of the line, I may move on to book five. I’m not going to put any more time into a series that wants to stumble on forever.

Good, not great

This book was not as exiting as the previous ones. It contained a lot of plot and preparation and featured some ground battles that while detailed were not that interesting. There was far less of the ship-to-ship combat that originally drew me into the series. Even the usually excellent narrator sounded bored as he droned on about ground forces no one cares about which is why I deducted a star there.

probably my fav mil sci-fy series.

Everything from characters to plot to the worlds is perfectly crafted to immerse you into the story right there with them.

cheated and defeated!

The performance was GREAT! However, I really wanted to hear more about the origin of humans. This wasn't what I received. Sadly, I will not ever read another story by this author.

The most epic sci-fi audiobook I've heard yet!

It seems that a Season 2 of this series is taking form. And what a start it was! Writing veteran James Rosone and newcomer TC Manning have proven to be an epic teamup with this one! Brought to life by Jonathan Davis' cool voice!

There is a lot to enjoy in this one. There are the epic space battles, intriguing world building and technological developments as ever. But the best scenes have to be TC Manning's Apollo Company ones. He came out swinging here, taking advantage of the multinational melting pot a one-Earth military could be! The mech battles are amazing (As an Aussie myself, I love Tahlia Jones!), and the combat medics get plenty of action as well on this unique battlefield. All this adds new features to the series and propels it forward into new opportunities!

The same can also be said with the Kato Sakura and Space Pirate stories as well. Truly something else! This book dares to be different.

Also, I must say, this book has the best "That's what she said" joke I've ever heard in any book ever! Perfecto!

Having read and listened to the previous books, it feels good to be listening to another book again. Especially after everything that's happened this year for me. I'd totally recommend this one!

Stay tuned for more!
