The Promised Land Has a Vermin Problem....
Once before, the sentient races in the known part of the galaxy had united against alien invaders. Decades have since passed, and new generations have grown complacent...dangerously so.
Long ago, much of the population of an entire planet fled their world before its sun went nova in thousands of ships, each one larger than a city. Now, the armada has arrived at the world they intend to make their new home. They regard the fact that the planet is already colonized by humans as a mere inconvenience, and their mode of communication is so different from anything humans use that they do not consider humans and their allies to be truly intelligent.
This time, the races of the old alliance will not have to worry about becoming an invader's meal - but that will be small comfort if these new invaders decide that genocide is justified for their own survival....

First, I would like to say I love the universe Steve White and David Weber created. I have enjoyed their books for over a decade, rereading them numerous times. One day, I plan to branch out of the Horror Genre I write in and do a Space scifi book/series.
Just a new story in this universe is awesome. I liked seeing some of the old (but aged) characters and the rebirth was pretty cool too. I can say I do miss Steve White's influence, but not to the point that it ruined the story.
The one thing that kind of irritated me was the descriptions and emotional states of the new aliens. I understand trying to make them alien, but sometimes, it was just wasted words that I cared nothing for, or were slightly confusing when, evidently, I should have understood what they meant (maybe I'm just dumb :)
Overall, though, pretty decent hook. Going to continue to follow the new series.
well worth the listen. narrator does a great job with the number of accents and charaters. storyljne is pretty good too
