Centuries in the past, mankind fought a seemingly unbeatable adversary from sector to sector across the Spiral Arm until the war ground to a standstill and the Enemy withdrew. Believing that they had won, the citizens of the galaxy rebuilt. The Inner Worlds, which had escaped the worst of the war's ravages, became even more insular, while the Rim worlds adopted a free and easy way with law and order. Now, hundreds of years after their withdrawal, the Enemy is back - and this time they'll be satisfied with nothing less than the extinction of the galaxy.

As far as styles I'd say this book is along the same lines as B.V. Larsons Swarm series. Lots of high tech yet well developed characters.
Kevin does a great job with the various voices and is so consistant it helps to keep the mental image in sync with the story.
It would have to be from an old song by REM. "It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine"
I can't wait to listen to the rest of the series and parralel series.
Please, NEVER recommend an abridged book for me. Really. I love to read and I've become really addicted to audios.
Actually a better story. As far as "military sc/fi" goes this is more touchy feely than I like.
Not too bad.
It's not a book I'd care to edit as I don't think I'm the target audience.
The 2 main characters. They are very compelling and able to pull in the reader.
This is my first book read by Kevin T. Collins... and I fell in LOVE! I will now seek out other books he's read just to hear him read! He truly did an excellent job.
Can one man save the universe from destruction?
Book started off slow for me, by skipping some time... but picked up. I ended excited to read the next book.
I picked up this book based on the brilliant reviews. Unfortunately, I was somewhat disappointed by the series. While it is certainly not bad as such, it was not all that interesting either. I listened to Crystal Soldier and figuring, hey, with such good reviews, maybe it picks up in volume 2, I listened to that one as well. It was pretty much the same though, and I did not finish the series.
about top third
The story kept up. It has an interesting story line and I did not get bored listening to it.
The fight scene where the hero and heroine nearly get hammered!
An enjoyable story. I want to read the rest of the trilogy.
The reason to fight on found in a soldiers ambition to duty. Jella and tree meet contra & dulce. The plot thickens.
I'm a technician that does a lot of driving for his job. I use the "windshield" time to listen to audiobooks.
I think this book could have used a good editor to trim some of the unnecessary fill from this book. Some parts were needlessly over dramatic. It kind of drags. The interview at the end of the book where Miller (author) interviews Collins (narrator) was interesting. I'll not be listening to the rest of the books, I think I'd rather Wikipedia it instead.
