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.

I feel like I have experienced many elements of this story in previous Frontline novels in some shape or form however, unlike other novels where characters and plot lines can get stale/tedious I enjoyed this book. It was interesting revisiting many of the planets and characters from the previous books after the passage of time and under different circumstances. Overall, I find that I am still interested in finding out how Andrew and Halley‘s story will end, and would really enjoy other stories in the Frontlines universe (e.g. Lazarus brigade, and the future).

Mars has been under Lanky control for more than a year. Since then, the depleted forces of Earth's alliances have rebuilt their fleets, staffing old warships with freshly trained troops. Torn between the need to beat the Lankies to the punch and taking enough time to put together an effective fighting force, command has decided to strike now.

One of my favorite science fiction/space opera series.A well written first person prospective that is refreshingly different to most of the military sci-fi books out there. Also Luke Daniels is on my list of favorite narrators. If anyone else read this series I would be disappointed. Overall, I am left wanting more and wished the next book was already out!

When secret organizations are forced to merge after years of enmity and bloodshed, only one person has the fearsome powers - and the bureaucratic finesse - to get the job done. Facing her greatest challenge yet, Rook Myfanwy Thomas must broker a deal between two bitter adversaries: the Checquy - the centuries-old covert British organization that protects society from supernatural threats, and the Grafters - a centuries-old supernatural threat.

One of the most amazing sequels I have ever listened to! I can't wait for the next book in the series. The vocal performance was also great with many distinct and convincing voices.
