The final battle between the Humans and the Zaltule is drawing near. However, the Arachnids have a secret that will ensure victory and allow them to wipe out the Human race once and for all.
In the Strell Empire, former Supreme Overlord Xatul plans his return. He has amassed a fleet to take back control of the Kleese Empire.
The Humans realize they need more time to prepare for the coming attack of the Zaltule. To buy the time they need, Fleet Admiral Kelly sends Seventh Fleet deep into the Kleese Empire to draw the attention of the Zaltule. However, even the best-laid plans can sometimes go horribly wrong.
This is the climactic conclusion to The Galactic Empire Wars Series.

Listens to audiobooks while travelling to and from various countries in Europe.
This book is on par with most of the previous books of the series. It is an enjoyable book with strong characters and political, social, as well as military struggles. It is a space opera in every sense of the genre, and if you like Battlestar Galactica mixed with Starship Troopers, you will enjoy this series quite a lot.
It is vital that you read/listen to the previous books or the story will not make much sense. The new narrator took some getting used to after 3 books by David Rheinstrom, but Liam Owen did a good job so no complaints there.
I was a bit apprehensive of the series at first, but I'm glad I picked this series up, well worth a read/listen.
Better story and ending
all of the books repeat same lines way too many times
At least I can hear and have some understanding of what the book is saying
At least half or more of the same words
Title kind of says it all. Primarily the ending was just lazy and a blatant cop out. not much on the state of the galaxy, the thing we've been trying to save for like 5 books. like literally a few sentences, a paragraph maybe. and while the characters never really progressed much (a problem in his other series) I still don't feel like there was enough closure there despite how little character progression there's been. at least the author KIND OF fixed his other errors like constantly repeating himself. though there's a laughable count of the kleese repeating how the "galaxy will be ours." every time the reader checks in with them. the author still apparently believes lasers and shit give off visible light in a vacuum. blue and red lasers everywhere. ha. despite my rant I still greatly enjoyed both his empire and slaver series a lot. despite severe short coming the story moves along nicely with fair combat scenes.
