Earth's armed forces have stopped the Lanky advance and chased their ships out of the solar system, but for CDC officer Andrew Grayson, the war feels anything but won. On Mars, the grinding duty of flushing out the twenty-meter-tall alien invaders from their burrows underground is wearing down troops and equipment at an alarming rate. And for the remaining extrasolar colonies, the threat of a Lanky attack is ever present.

It pains me to write this review because I completely loved this series, but honestly this book was a flop for me. It seems like 90% of the book was all about mundane and boring events and was missing the action and excitement and imagination from the earlier books. I was really disappointed. But, once again the narrator crushed it. He's fantastic and is great to listen to.

Started good, a little slow in the middle, excellent towards the end and now I can't wait for the last book. The narrator is absolutely outstanding.
