    The human-eating Posleen have invaded Earth, decimating all but two North American territories. Heavily outnumbered, humans cluster close together, the possibilities of habitable space shrinking by the day. An epic battle from September 11-27, 2009, will decide the fate of humankind, and the apocalyptic decision to use nuclear weapons - heretofore banned - will alter the fate of alien and human forever.

    After almost a century of peaceful exploration and colonization of space, the United Earth Space Force stumbles across a shockingly xenophobic alien race that has more and better armed ships and refuses all attempts at contact. As the outgunned Space Force is driven back in battle after battle in what appears to be a war of extermination, one officer experiences precognitive visions that help him blunt the enemy onslaught, but he can't control or predict when they occur.

    This book is perfect for me, i read while i fall asleep or drive. so its hard for me to get into a overly technical sic fi book. so this was perfect for me. good story and good characters. decent struggle and the underlying plot of the book gets introduced in a very cool way. does leave a bit of a cliff hanger.

    The starship New Horizon is Earth's first attempt at an FTL capable spaceship. But others don't want the mission to succeed. The mission goes suddenly and horribly wrong with the possibility of inadvertently leading the Hocklyns to Earth decades in advance of their estimated arrival time. Can the cadets on the New Horizon stop the deadly plot before it's too late?

    Well after reading the second book that was very face paced (which i personally prefer) this book goes back in time as we just start to get out into the universe. i enjoyed it, it was a bit slow for me, but i stuck with it and I'm now on to the next book in the series.

    This book is a great add to the verse. so many times we fallow the same set of characters. so this jumps over to another planet with its own problems, and as you go around that part of the empire you see how the fall is affecting another part of the verse. The only thing i did not like was the repeat of some beliefs the main character had over and over. i got it the first time and the second time. but after that it got on my nerve he kept bringing it up. but not enough to turn me of. I love this narrator.

    Her Imperial Highness the Grand Duchess Victoria Maria Teresa Inez Smythe-Peterwald, daughter of wealth and power, was raised to do little except be attractive and marry well. Then everything changed - her brother, her father’s favorite and the heir apparent, was killed in battle by Lieutenant Kris Longknife, daughter of the Peterwald’s longtime enemies. Vicky vowed revenge, but her skill set was more suitable for seduction than assassination, and she failed. Angry and disappointed, her father decided she needed military training and forced her to join the Navy.

    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..

    The book didn't grab me right off. In fact I listen to 2 other books. It's ranks as a standby series for me. A book between others. But in going to start the second one see where it goes.

    A slot of times in multi book series some things get old. Like the jump drive blue white washing over the bridge. The author played with that finally in this book. And the story is staying somewhat fresh. When the book ended my first thought was "how long till the next one". And it has left me wondering where this is going.

    Ethan Ortane has just met his long lost son, Atton, but the circumstances could have been better. After a devastating bio-attack and the ensuing battle, they've fled Dark Space aboard the Defiant to get away from the crime lord, Alec Brondi, who has just stolen the most powerful vessel left in the Imperial Fleet--the Valiant, a five-kilometer-long gladiator-class carrier. They need reinforcements to face Brondi, but beyond Dark Space the comm relays are all down, meaning that they must cross Sythian Space to contact the rest of the fleet.

    The Star Kingdom's ally Erewhon is growing increasingly restive in the alliance because the new High Ridge regime ignores its needs. Add to that the longstanding problem of a slave labor planet controlled by hostile Mesans in Erewhon's stellar back yard, a problem which High Ridge also ignores.

    I like david weber if i read his books. his honorverse narrator sends me up a wall. so when i saw this i jumped on it. but this is dragged out history lesson. if you love the honor verse you love it I'm sure. well written and narrator. just honestly not for me. only reason i ut 3 stars is its not fair to go any lower just because its not my type of book. Still a good book if you like extreme detail. but i didn't finish it,
