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.

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!

The war against the Kleese intensifies as the human-led Alliance attempts a daring attack against the heart of the Kleese Empire. If the mission succeeds, it will be a great victory for the Alliance. If it fails, it will mean the end of freedom for all the races of the galaxy and the end of human life.

The Sol System was conquered and humans lived as slaves for 500 long years. Now, after years of brutal warfare, humanity has been liberated. Liberation, however, comes at a cost, and the Sol System has become nothing more than a puppet state for a vast galactic empire. For Jon Pike, a war hero who has lost everything, there is no substitute for freedom. He blames the aliens for humanity's troubles, especially the one living inside him.

The battle at the galactic center had been a great victory for the Federation and the Alliance but at a tremendous cost. The Battleship Avenger and her fleets had vanished being drawn into a great white vortex at the moment of victory. For over four years, the mystery of what happened to the Avenger has haunted the Federation.

General Jake Taylor and his army of cyborg soldiers are veterans of Erastus, a planet so brutal, so hellish, it is called Gehenna by the men sent to fight and die there. He and his comrades battled for years in the most appalling conditions human beings have ever endured, believing the entire time they were protecting Earth from bloodthirsty alien monsters. But it was all a lie, the cynical propaganda of the totalitarian regime that rules over all mankind.

This is an incredible series! I didn't listen to this book first I started with The Slaver Wars: Alien Contact: The Slaver Wars Book Two (The Slaver Wars Book One) (Volume 1).

It was absolutely amazing! Looks of action, epic battles scenes, and just wow! Excellent story, don't want to give too many spoilers,but very exciting. After hearing and listening to that, I then listened to this one, which is a slower pace but provides much of the now what? After you hear Alien Contact.

Personally, I think you should start with Alien Contact, before listening to this, or it won't be as powerful!

Great series! Really good voice acting too!

Shut out from NASA and military support, Gordon is forced to go it alone, to sow the seeds for an entirely new sort of planetary defense: a space-based naval force.

Great story about a wealthy visionary who sees an upcoming alien threat years before the government. He assembles a great team to develop technology to confront an alien warship. Solid believable tech. Love how the story evolves over the years.

You can tell how the author's personal military life gave this a great realistic feel.

Thought the voices here sounded very good as well!

Overall a rare find!

Before Desirmor came and broke the peace of the Alexidus monarchy with his army of dark beasts, Princess Harmony Alexidus spoke a prophecy of his rise and fall. He would destroy the warriors of the Harven Mountains. He would make the princess his eternally unwilling bride. Then he would wrap the world in a veil of darkness so tight, the people would forget that light ever existed.

Love audiobooks like this for long boring drives in the summer! Great story about a young guy who was hidden away because of his his hidden ability. Come to think of it,almost like Luck Skywalker was hidden away.

Great adventure, imagination and narration.

I'll probably listen to this one again later on!
