Summary

From Joshua Dalzelle, author of the best-selling Omega Force series, comes an all new vision of humanity's future.

In the 25th century, humans have conquered space. The advent of faster-than-light travel has opened up hundreds of habitable planets for colonization, and humans have exploited the virtually limitless space and resources for hundreds of years with impunity. So complacent have they become with the overabundance that armed conflict is a thing of the past, and their machines of war are obsolete and decrepit. What would happen if they were suddenly threatened by a terrifying new enemy? Would humanity fold and surrender, or would they return to their evolutionary roots and meet force with force?

One ship - and one captain - will soon be faced with this very choice.

Well paced with plenty of action

This is a good military science fiction story with all the ingredients you'd expect. It rattles along at a good pace and while there are few real surprises that really doesn't detract from the enjoyment of the story itself.

Action packed

Love this book, no idea if the ship commands are accurate but love the details of the commands given to the stations. Story premise is good and for now intereseted in how it develops.

It's like naval warfare in space. Set condition 1 SS!

One of my favourite scifi books

The book is easy to listen to and yet still highly engaging. The mechanics of space combat in these books are brilliant and feel more realistic than many other books. The narrator brings the characters to life and makes the story that much more engaging. Love the series!

Gripping, heroic sci if action

Well narrated. Great story and got a really good feel for the characters. Looking forward to the next installment. I'm 'into' sci-fi film/tv and wasn't sure how it would translate to an audio book. I was hooked throughout and had to stop a number of times to take a break from the tense build up.

Interesting first book but...

This was an interesting first book. I like led the plot and the speed of events. However the author kills the suspense too soon, the characters are a bit flat and some of the methods of twisting the plot are rather clumsy and not as clever as they should be. I won't be listening to the rest of the series I'm afraid.
