War comes home to the Sol system when the Drasin track a human ship back to Earth, with devastating consequences. Facing massive force of invading alien ships wielding terrible power, the crew of the NAC spacecraft, their allies, and the people of Earth must mount a desperate effort to stop them.
Doomed from the start, but with nowhere to retreat, Captain Eric Weston commits his ship to the defense of the human race even as the human outposts in Sol system fall one by one before the unrelenting Drasin onslaught.
A first-rate military science fiction epic that combines old-school space opera and modern storytelling, Homeworld: Odyssey One, the third installment of the Odyssey One Series, continues the exhilarating, hard-pressed action as the Captain Weston faces an overwhelming enemy threatening not just his ship and crew, but the future of Earth as well.

Yes. Currie paints such a vibrant and fun universe to escape into.
Darcie's perfect for this series.
Without any spoilers.... This book was absolutely riveting right up until the last few chapters which came across as an eye rolling cop-out ending.I've already listened to the ending several times already just to see if I missed something, but it only left me disappointed. The rest of the book was so strong, but the ending just fell flat for me.
The story has face-paced adventure, but there are some logical issues that creep up from time to time (e.g., how can people who apparently fled from a galactic empire as a space-traveling species with presumably the ability to use stored history not realize that nearly identical ships to the ones they build are from the same galactic empire they fled? How can critters that typically freeze to death floating in space after devouring planets survive floating in space laying in waiting to attack ships?). Oh well. It is science fiction, and I can suspend disbelief. However, the last chapter just did me in with the introduction of a new character that just killed the tension and seems a little too pat to me. I really liked the book, right up to the last 8 minutes or so.
Sure, although I think one would have to really, really like military science fiction to really enjoy the books.
Darcie did a great job in general.
Well, dang. The book ended on a cliffhanger that leaves the entire focus of the story unresolved. Yes, it needs a follow-up book, but I am concerned that it is will take a turn towards the mystical, as opposed to a science fiction structure.
Just relived the book for the 3rd or 4th time, soo yes just fun fun fun.
Jack Campbell the lost fleet saga. Just existing
Love this story. Hopefully we can get more from this author on audio formats.
So far I have loved the "terran" characters all of them. The author puts just the right touch on their backgrounds and their demeanor to make them real in your imagination. I liked the political touches too as it brings some realism to what would be more realistic to happen not the everyone lets hug and forget the past but we have a common enemy lets fight them together.
The default answer is Captain Westin but I am a fan of Stephano as his character grew on me starting with book 2.
They are all good in my opinion.
Yes and I nearly did. I read (listened) through all 3 books in 3 days. I have a very long commute and usually have a book going in my ear while I work.
Anyone have any ideas on how many books are planned for this series?
My wife says she can read me like an open book. Though she regrets not being able to shut me up the same way. :)
Book 3 starts off shooting. The quantum pellets not only don't stop but keep building to a climactic end. Great series... waiting for Book 4... and the screenplay. :)
100%. Have a lot of drive time and not a lot of time to read.
All the descriptions of the technology
YES.... couldn't put it down!
Please keep writing and expanding on the series. If you write 20 books I'll buy every one of them.
I burned through all three books in the series in about two weeks. I love the story. The books themselves keep getting better. Benjamin Darcie is doing a great job narrating. Please don't change your narrator like so many other great sci-fi series have done.
I wish some of Evan Currie's other books would make it to audible.
An old enemy returns, no longer an enemy but not necessarily a friend either.
I liked how Eric dealt with the old enemy, very much in character.
For the most part it's very well done, although I found the pronunciation of "bow wake" became a huge irritant. I may be wrong but, the bow of a space vessel (leading edge) should be pronounced, just like the bow of a boat, prow, pram or ocean going vessel (bow and stern). Instead of pronounced like a bow and arrow. As I say it became old fast, then it became a distraction, followed closely by irrigation. The narrator does a great job otherwise.
No it wasn't, there is enough going on, new situations, new tech, enough new to think over, that lent itself well to multiple breaks.
While "Into the Black" remains my favorite, E.C. keeps the energy and interest high throughout the entire series. It's very well done and very enjoyable.
