This is book twelve in the frontier Saga series. It is best to read this series in order.
At the end of the last book, the Aurora and the Celestia were battling the Jung Battle Platform when the Corinairi Falcons arrived to help. Earth is saved but in terrible shape. The Ghatazhak are needed to keep law and order on the planet.
The ships need to be fixed up and resupplied. Captain Nathan Scott wants to take the battle to the Jung but the Jung still are after the Earth. Nathan suspects he has a Jung spy aboard the ship. Prince Casimir is fighting with his parliament to provide help to Nathan and Humanitarian aid to Earth. Nathan discovers there is a Jung Battle Platform on the way to Earth. You will never believe what the Corinairi are able to achieve with the jump drive. As in the other books there is lots of action, we not only have space battles but the Ghatazhak are engaged on the Earth. This book is one of the few that does not end in a cliff hanger.
The book is well written and the author continues to develop the characters with each book. This is a super great military sci-fi space opera.
Jeffrey Kafer does an excellent job narrating the series.
I think Ryk Brown's Frontiers Saga was well written and narrated by Jeffrey Kafer superbly; however, I have say that the fact it takes 12 credits puts it a very high price. Quite often, a single episode spanned multiple "books" was disappointing. An example was "Celestial CV-02", needed to include almost half of the next episode "Resistance".
If you are ready to spend well over $100 to listen to a good Saga, then I recommend this one as a great "Read".
Audio book lover with sci-fi leanings
The series continues to get better and better. Book 12 stands as one of my favorite of the series as we get fantastic space battles and character development that may have been missing from earlier novels. Ryk Brown is growing in both imagination and prose!
I love this series, and I can't wait for the next book...but Nathan can't keep getting this lucky! I mean he just can't. It's been ridiculous and I'm starting to route for the Jung a little. From what I've read in the book, they aren't that terrible of rulers, and they make truly magnificent war ships and machines. Seems like they have their heads on straight.
What I'm saying is that the premise of this book is starting to fall through. Everything is too easy or too lucky for Nathan now. I'm curious to see how things transpire after the ending of Rise of the Alliance.
it's obvious that the author wants to move the story into something new, but it is jarring to have months pass by in minutes, as if there are chapters missing. so it needs to be longer.
The length of the book does not take away from the overall greatness of this book, and the narrator is excellent
"Another great book in the series"
I enjoyed this a much as all the previous books. I can't wait for the next one
This is one of the best in the series so far. It really exciting and keeps you on the edge
Can't wait for the next book
