Humanity is defeated.
Ten years ago the Sythians invaded the galaxy with one goal: to wipe out the human race.
They are hiding.
Now the survivors are hiding in the last human sector of the galaxy: Dark Space--once a place of exile for criminals, now the last refuge of mankind.
They are isolated.
The once galaxy-spanning Imperium of Star Systems is left guarding the gate which is the only way in or out of Dark Space--but not everyone is satisfied with their governance.

I really enjoyed this book, partly because William Dufris is as usual amazing, and partly because this was just really well written. The plot line is engaging, you hate the bad guys, and the hero isn't so noble as is the case in most of these contemporary sci fi books.
As far as the actual combat I thought they were the best I've read. Better then the lost fleet, and more dramatic. If you like military sci-fi I believe you'll find a lot of enjoyment in this title.
This was one of the more painful experiences I have had with Audible books. Since I did not have the written version, I could not be positive if it was the writing or the performance. One thing was clear, however, that the performance/narration was terrible. At times, I felt it was like a high school audio production.
The story line stretches credibility. The ultimate kicker, however, was that when the story gets to a pivotal point, the reader is informed that you have to buy another book (sequel). That's not going to happen.
