    Ten years after Emergence Day, as the Locust Horde advances on humanity’s last defended area -Ephyra - in a bloody war that has seen billions die, Marcus Fenix does the unthinkable: he defies orders and abandons his post during a critical battle in a bid to rescue his father, weapons scientist Adam Fenix. But Adam is buried in the rubble during a ferocious assault on the Fenix mansion, and Ephyra falls to the enemy.

    Nicholas A. Croson says: "Another Karen Traviss masterpiece."

    Have you listened to any of David Colacci’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    David Colacci is one of my favorite readers to listen to. He does such a great job with this book and all the others.

    When the Imperial prison barge Purge - temporary home to 500 of the galaxy's most ruthless killers, rebels, scoundrels, and thieves - breaks down in a distant, uninhabited part of space, its only hope appears to lie with a star destroyer found drifting, derelict, and seemingly abandoned. But when a boarding party from the Purge is sent to scavenge for parts, only half of them come back - bringing with them a horrific disease so lethal that within hours nearly all aboard the Purge die in ways too hideous to imagine.

    To start with, it's not a Star Wars book really. With the exception of a really bad part for Han and Chewie (just a terrible idea of putting them on there...he only did it to make it feel anything like star wars). The writing feels rushed; There's no real character development. He tried to put his own spin on a zombie virus and outbreak, kudos for that, but it was a terrible idea. The virus, the way it spreads, just everything about it was poorly thought out. Even if it wasn't a "Star Wars" book it would be just a bad, bad zombie book.

    I think my least favorite thing about the book is the chapter name reading....The stupid guy yelling in the background the name of the chapter was just a horrible thing to do. I feel embarrassed for everyone involved that it's there.

    I didn't want to finish the book. I shouldn't have finished the book but I spent the credit (wish I hadn't) so I did. I was going to get Red Harvest at the same time, really glad I didn't.

    When the Locust Horde burst from the ground 15 years ago to slaughter the human population of Sera, mankind began a desperate war against extinction. Now, after a decade and a half of bloody fighting, and with billions dead, the survivors have been forced to destroy their own cities and sacrifice their entire civilization to halt the Locust advance. The last-ditch measures have succeeded, but at an enormous cost: the survivors have been reduced to a handful of refugees.

    Yet another amazing book from Karen Traviss. The ONLY downside, which really has nothing to do with the book, is that this is the 2nd to final book (so they've said, and with the last one now out - The Slab) and I don't play the games because I don't like console. I would love to have something after Coalitions End to find out what happens.

    In the wake of apparent self-destruction of the Forerunner empire, two humans - Chakas and Riser - are like flotsam washed up on very strange shores indeed. Captured by the Master Builder, misplaced during a furious battle in space, they now find themselves on an inverted world where horizons rise into the sky, and where humans of all kinds are trapped in a perilous cycle of horror and neglect. For they have become both research animals and strategic pawns in a cosmic game whose madness knows no end....

    I don't play the games but I read/listen to the books and there isn't one that has disappointed me. This particular series is just awesome. I can't wait for the next book!
