I am an avid eclectic reader.
This is book six of the series and it is best to read the books in order. As the story ended in book five with Aurora chasing a Ta’Akar warship into Ta’Akar space, book six has Aurora fighting deep into Ta’Akar space taking the war to the Ta’Akar. The Aurora is fully manned and equipped for the first time in the series.
The story moves at a lighting pace with lots and lots of action, suspense, great land battles and fantastic space battles. Brown continues to build his characters. Cameron, the XO, is now back on duty after spending book five in the hospital recovering from a serious battle injury. Cameron is great in command of the battle command and communication center during the battle of the Ta’Akar home planet. We learn more about Tag in this book as more is revealed about who he is.
Brown’s writing seems to improve with each book. He appears to be a promising new military sci-fi author. Brown kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the book. This series is a great get away from it all book; it is a quick, fun, entertaining read. I had the feeling that the series was ending with this book but apparently there are more books available to read in this series; cannot wait to start the next book.
Jeffrey Kafer does an excellent job narrating the book. Kafer is an award winning audiobook narrator.
Audio book lover with sci-fi leanings
The Aurora is finally crewed to capacity and fighting with an alliance that is taking the fight to enemy homeworld. The battle scenes here are well written and not everyone survives. Attacking an enemy homeworld is presented as no easy task and we get to enjoy a storyline that takes place on both the ground and space. A fitting and satisfying end to the conflict in the Pegasis cluster. Now on to Earth?
less technical discussion rehashing the details of every little thing and more interpersonal relationships deeper personal feeling and relationships etc. If I hear Jason wondered, or Cameron wondered 1 more time ...
nope I love war space stories just finished the omega force LOVED it.
disappointment, I don't feel I have really connected with any of the characters. I wish they would space Cameron, she just drives me nuts
Say something about yourself!
The world and character building , Ryk Brown really knows how to wright a smooth flowing story it never feels disjointed and the characters wow the characters you really feel something for them which is almost rare in a military sc-fi novel. Sure many good military sc-fi books generally have a couple characters you care about but there are many I care about in this series "Frontiers Saga", thank you Mr. Brown.
Lost Fleet and Star Force series but I like this series better.
Absolutely but other responsibility's prevailed.
This book as it's name entails "Head Of the Dragon" as in cut the head from the dragon really picks the pace up on the battle scenes compared to the previous books in this series. It was cool to read Ryk Brown cut loose with his battle scenes with many different battles happening at the same time on planet and in space, he can write some action scenes that is for sure!
Nv Native American, 1 room school house, hi school of 30, Raised 4-2& 2 ala Brady Bnch, lv audio books, home bound widow. M happy. Thnx AB.
I love the action, the tactics, the tech in my Space Operas! But I feel I must warn you, the undecided Audio Book Purchaser, I had shell stock after I listened to Head of the Dragon. There was so much good action punctuated with destructive turncoats, all consuming vengeance, humor, and new characters, I was red eyed, shaky, and not quite grounded caused by a one sitting listen. Ryk Brown and Jeffry Kafer are a gold plated duo who deliver! I highly recommend Head of the Dragon but also recommend you start with the 1st book in the series. Be prepared for some sleepless nights.....
I've been writing software for over twenty years. Most of the books in my collection are science fiction or computer related materials.
So far I have greatly enjoyed this series. This book brings several really great twists and ends fantastically!!
I love to read a well written book! Audible has made my life ever better by having process that allows me to enjoy a good book on the road!
Well written and very entertaining Drive to buy the next one in line. Keep it up Ryk you have a fan for life!
"Another. Great Instalment."
Another great follow up. Well put together with lots of twists and turns. Not to deep and not overly complicated. The story flows and is an exiting read.
