A memory recovered...a weapon forged...a showdown an eternity in the making.
Colonel Mitchell "Ares" Williams has won battles before. So while the recovery of the eternal engine and the emergence of a powerful new ally have given him hope that he can save humanity from enslavement and annihilation, he knows the war against the Tetron is far from over, and victory far from assured.
When a mission gone sideways finds the Riggers cut off and the enemy closing in, Mitchell has no choice but to forget about strategy and improvise, risking everything in a last-ditch effort to bring the starship, Goliath, back where it belongs.
Because if he doesn't, there won't be any battles left to win.

Again, M. R. Forbes writing is very good along with Jeffrey Kafer's narrating performance. While there are different situations that occur in this timeline, they play out in a mostly predictable fashion as has happened in past book installments. Forbes does include other characters but most of them either don't play a significant role or are used as cannon fodder later. Some of the betrayals were telegraphed well ahead of time and some of the mistakes are rookie errors that seem odd occurring from 1st tier characters. The ending came off rather rushed such as how Cathy and Michael were saved from the Watson clones and I found the abrupt ending less gratifying than I had hoped for.
Still a worthy book.
"Back to exciting!"
This was much better, I think sometimes there has to be a little lull in the story, so I can almost forgive MR Forbes for the previous much slower book. :) This was a lot quicker and reactive. And I enjoyed it a lot. No spoilers, and I do hope that there's another coming.... after all I think there's still a few loose ends.
