The stunning conclusion to the Portal Wars trilogy.
Jake Taylor and his cyborg soldiers have fought their way from one Portal planet to another, moving steadily homeward with one goal in mind - the utter destruction of the corrupt rulers who sent them to hell to fight and die as pawns in a dishonest war, one started not by the alien enemy, but by Earth's own government, as a tool in its plot to seize total power.
And now, after the fighting, the suffering, the bitter losses; finally, it is time. Time for the final invasion of Earth. Time to liberate their homeland from the totalitarian government that controls it utterly, to find those responsible for all that has happened, and to kill them all.
Jake and his warriors are hopelessly outnumbered, but they are determined to battle to the last, to sacrifice all for any hope of victory, however small. But Taylor and his soldiers are not alone in their fight, for in Earth's shadows, in the rotting slums and the remote countryside, in dark corners and crumbling cellars, a spark of defiance has survived and grown, men and women who remember liberty, and are willing to die for the chance to regain what they lost a generation before. They are preparing, and waiting. Waiting for the chance to strike a blow for freedom.
But those who cling to power will not give it up easily. Indeed, the politicians who run UNGov will see Earth a charred ruin, the dead lying in unburied heaps before they will yield their positions. The battle is about to begin, and it will not end until only one side remains.
Is Jake Taylor willing to go all the way, to fight to the end, do whatever he must, to accept nothing less than death or total victory, whatever the cost?

Say something about yourself!
Excellent story, and action. Noticed a few comments on something being missed on editing, believe these have been addressed. Perhaps this was on an earlier version.
Nicely completed sci-fi trilogy. If you liked the first two books, this one is a must-have in your collection. I didn’t find any major plot holes or inconsistency in the storyline and there are many interesting twists and exciting space action scenes. I could totally imagine this audiobook trilogy as a movie saga one day. It has that potential! Also the narration is fixed, so there are no more unedited parts or audio errors.
I found nothing wrong with the narration, it was quite exciting in some action sequences, so in my opinion, Liam Owen did a great job narrating this audiobook. I love this genre, not only when it comes to books, but also sci-fi movies set in space. This audiobook has a wonderful and exciting story, very well constructed from the author. There were many twists and turns, but the ending kept me wanting more. 5 stars, well deserved!
A great sci-fi military audiobook with some amazing action scenes and an interesting story that kept me hooked untill the ending. I didn’t notice, like some of the reviewers, that the narrator was absent, I guess they had that parts fixed and narrated again. I loved how the characters are well developed, and Jake's character is especially likeable. Overall I have enjoyed in this space adventure and I recommend the book to all the fans of the genre.
I've been waiting for this to come out for a while, and it didn't disappoint! Great narration! I see a few posts about issues on narration, but these sounded good. Maybe download again? Anyway, Jake Taylor marches his army to free earth, but he encounters many set backs and twists. I don't want to spoil it but, his back is against the wall several times! Many twists and great story!
One of my favorite narrator's
Between chapters 21 and 23 there are many audio errors, it actually sounds like audio attempts from recording, you will here the narrator repeat a sentence several times in different tones presumably it all should have been cut out.
It actually goes to show the amount of time and effort Liam Owen puts into his narrating jobs, Liam Owen is still one of favorite narrator's, I'm sure it was just an honest mistake by the audio editors.
I'm up to Chapter 23 and starting about in the middle of Chapter 22, the narrator starts, stops, and repeats himself several times. It sounds like a rough cut from the studio where somebody forgot to edit out all but the final cut. At first I thought my phone was acting up and skipping back but I watched the progress bar carefully and there was no mistake. There were also a few different variations of the same sentence used which further reinforces my belief that a rough cut was released.
Starting about chapter 23 the editor is absent! Very disconcerting! Very poor quality control! And right in the middle of a huge battle! Story is good! And I still recommend the story! But quality suffers!!!
