Summary

Deep in blackest space, the Drasin have watched humanity's journey to the stars—and determined that a species as barbaric as ours has no place in the cosmos.

The wreckage of the starship Odyssey, once Earth's greatest guardian, lies strewn across New York City. Abandoned by all but its captain, Odyssey's sacrifice covered the withdrawal of countless troops as the Drasin assault ravaged the planet. When Captain Eric Weston finally emerges from the rubble, impossibly alive thanks to the mysterious "Gaia", he knows with the Drasin it's kill or be killed.

But not all of the heavens have proven hostile. The Priminae have felt the full brunt of Drasin aggression on their own home world, and they won't leave humanity to face annihilation alone. Together with what's left of the crews of the Odyssey and other starships, they race to join Weston and his group of Earth-bound survivors for a desperate last stand.

The final battle of the Drasin War brings bestselling author Evan Currie's Odyssey One series to its shattering conclusion.

Fantastic Story, fantastic narrator!

Extremely well written and engaging story made even better by the Narrator David de Vries. Listened to all of the Odyssey series and each one as excitingbas the last!

Bad Narration

Unfortunately, the narrator ruins the story, completely unsuited to it. The previous narrator was great and set a very good pace. Doubt I will buy the rest of the audiobooks because of this reason.

File under guilty pleasure

The story really is shallow, matcho, bravado, military hero nonsense but I had to finish the story and will probably get the rest. I still feel a little ashamed that I like it though.

Changes....

Very good story again, but why change the narrator? The new narrator changed the pronunciation of key names, and totally changed the character accents, as well as going from no swearing in the earlier books to virtually every other word in this one? Very strange but a great story still!

The fight for Earth is on!!!

I really enjoyed Book 4. Action packed from the beginning. I always looked forward to listening as often as I could to hear how the epic battle for Earth would play out. I was not disappointed. I look forward to Book 5.

Excellent book

Brilliant action packed story. Earth is on the line, over whelming forces against them, how will we survive? This is tense, great writing so much to take in. Love it.
