A forgotten colony of humans live on a water world circling a tiny, faded star on the edge of the galaxy. The crew of their newest flagship, the Rampart, encounters an alien scout who is being chased by a dangerous foe. The encounter shakes the beliefs held by the people of Lashmere. With the aid of the mysteries of the origin tablet, they discover the true origins of their colony. These may be the last humans in the universe. Can they survive against their ancient enemy? Their only choice is to embrace an unknown past and fight with everything they have.

Honestly I just couldn't decide on a book so I clicked a recommended one from Audible.
Glad I did, this book was intelligent without being too dry, had excellent concepts of Military strategy without geeking out overly on gear.
The Captains made some odd choices at times when it came to diplomacy with Alien species, and the Aliens were conveniently dumb at times where I don't think they would have been.
overall tho I deeply recommend, audio performance was as good as they come.
fast moving sci-fi
final battle scenes are excellent
obviously 1st in a series...I am eager for the rest!
This books was awesome, and has a ton of very interesting and unexpected plot twists that are pulled of to perfection. I loved how he puts rebel factions into the political environment to give the story background and make it seem more realistic. As always MacLeod Andrews dose a superb job on the narration. To sum it all up, I eagerly await the next installment of this series.
The story is the best I've heard since the Lost Starship series. Excellent character development and multiple story lines to keep the listener off balanced and engaged. MacLeod Andrews is one of the best orators on audible. His spot on accents and inflections bring life to the characters and make it easy to distinguish even in fast action. Highly recommend.
1-10 about a 8
a lot of information given in short segments
i just like audio
the book has its moments but leaves you hanging in some areas
I was afraid it would just be super smart monkeys against the universe. there is some of that but I feel there is more than that coming
This book had potential, but that's about it. I finished it in hopes it would get better, but it didn't. The performance was pretty monotone although the different voices and accents were good. My mind kept drifting off especially in trying to detail the technical aspects. I loved "The Martian" with all its details but this book was like reading a technical manual .
