    Two years after the un-hatching of Callayan President Neiland’s plot to make the capital city of Tanusha the center of the Federation, Callay is under siege. So begins the third installment of this gripping trilogy from an exciting new sci-fi author. A powerful faction of conservative Fleet captains has surrounded Callay, at Earth’s behest, and is threatening a blockade - or worse. A fearful Earth does not wish to lose direct control of its precious war machine, and there are fears of civil war.

    Story

    The story has great depth of writing and lost of action. The writing reflects a lot of background gained from the authors time living in India and other southeast Asian nations. The author hails from Australia were he lives now. When younger that author won a few awards for this very series. There is a lot more depth to this series than the Mich Rap, Gray Man, or other like series's ( I have listened to them all).

    Dina the narrator does a great job as usual. She is one of my favorites.

    According to the author the next books in the series are supposed to be out in September 2013. However, there is no timeline for the audio-books.

    I greatly prefer this series to Tom Clancy's current works which have began to show too much political bias.

    Cassandra Kresnov must find the answers that could free her people--or doom her family. A quarter of a million people die in the destruction of the moon Cresta. The League civil war is accelerating out of control, but projections indicate that as their technologically induced sociological dysfunction continues, all of humanity may face a similar fate.

    I really enjoy Joel's story telling and Dina P. is one of my favorite narrators. I have now listened to this book in the series twice and have enjoyed it both times.

    This is one of several series I really enjoy.. This not the only book in the series I have listened to more than one time.

    I like and recommend the whole series.. It is not as dark and violent as the Jane Yellow Rock, Kate Daniels, and Mercy Thomson series... (I like and am a loyal follower of all three three) I like this series because of the humor and easy flowing story and great narration.

    The year is 2108, and the North American Commonwealth is bursting at the seams. For welfare rats like Andrew Grayson, there are only two ways out of the crime-ridden and filthy welfare tenements, where you’re restricted to 2,000 calories of badly flavored soy every day. You can hope to win the lottery and draw a ticket on a colony ship settling off-world, or you can join the service. With the colony lottery a pipe dream, Andrew chooses to enlist in the armed forces for a shot at real food, a retirement bonus, and maybe a ticket off Earth.

    Luke Daniels is one of my favorite narrators. I thought the story is well written and precedes at a decent pace. I am going to now listen to book two and if it is also as good I will be getting book three when it is released later this year...

    Lieutenant Jacob Mercer likes fast motorcycles, faster women, and screamin' space fighters. As a reckless fighter jock in the Resistance fleet battling the Corsican Empire, he lives solely for the thrill of taking out as many Imperial bogeys as he can. A rebel victory is looming on the horizon when the Imperials abruptly change tactics and, in a surprising show of devastating force, incinerate the city of Dallas with a thermonuclear blast - killing millions - and delivering a merciless example of what happens to upstart worlds..

    Dragons do not cry. They control their emotions. This is what all dragons were taught, but I am now the only one alive to remember this lesson... Meet Vincent, a most unusual dragon. For thousands of years he’s been trapped - forced to spend what’s left of his existence among us in the form of a human for a crime in which he was unjustly convicted. When a new love arrives unexpectedly, Vincent discovers that the only way to find happiness is to revisit his violent past and to confront his uncertain future.

    When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself.

    Sarah Beauhall has more on her plate than most 20-somethings: day job as a blacksmith, night job as a props manager for low-budget movies, and her free time is spent fighting in a medieval re-enactment group. The lead actor breaks Sarah's favorite one-of-a-kind sword, and to avoid reshooting scenes, Sarah agrees to repair the blade. One of the extras, who claims to be a dwarf, offers to help. And that's when things start to get weird.

    Story

    I loved the concept behind the story. However, the writing is choppy and the narration could have been better. Both of these improve in book two and three. Note: I just got done with listening to the the four book Aragon series. As a result, I had very high expectations. In the Aragon series both the writing and narration were vastly superior to this series. Another thing I did not like about all three books in this series was the amount of explicit sex. If I want porn, I will read porn... This is not a series for young teens, and for sure not pre-teens.

    If you like space operas with lots of combat and well written battle scene then both this book and series will be for you. I love this series and would place it on par with the Lost Feet series by Jack Campbell. I also enjoy the Narrator. Though I would recommend starting with book one.

    The Galactic Empire is dying and chaos and anarchy are breaking out everywhere. After a disastrous mission against terrorists on Earth itself, Captain Edward Stalker of the Terran Marine Corps makes the mistake of speaking truth to power, telling one of the most powerful men in the Empire a few home truths. As a result, Captain Stalker and his men are unceremoniously exiled to Avalon, a world right on the Rim of the Empire. It should have been an easy posting...

    If you like military SiFy and other series like the Mike Shepard's -- Kris Longknife and Jack Campell's -- Lost Fleet series's you will like this one. So far the Author has written nine books in the series and Audible has only three of them...

    I will quickly pick up all that are added in the future...
