    To ensure the survival of The Confederacy, the Legion of the Damned must establish a new capital on the planet Algeron - and seize faster-than-light technology from alien forces before it can be used against them.

    Overall

    I have enjoyed the entire Legion of the Damned series and this was a worthy addition. Unlike some of the earlier novels, this one was a similar to Book 5: For More Than Glory as it focused most of the action on a single planet and single quest - but there is enough intergalactic geopolitics to keep it interesting. The transitions can be pretty abrupt as the focus narrows and widens but luckily there is a smaller cast of characters to keep track of than in earlier books (though given some of the earlier novels had dozens of humans and aliens to track that isn't saying much.)

    The plot is a bit contrived to get the protagonists and antagonists on essentially equal footing but once it got there it was a nice back-and-forth that never got boring. There are more than a few cliches running through the entire series in general and this book in particular ("it felt like ball of lead just landed at the bottom of his stomach") but it is easy to get past that and enjoy the story.

    Generally speaking the bad guys are rational characters (with one notable exception) and their motivations make sense. There is a good mix of dialogue, technology, and battles to keep it going and there is the one (seemingly obligatory) sex scene that is present in all the novels so far.

    You should read the other books in the series before listening to this one but if you liked the others then you will thoroughly enjoy your time - I know I did.
