The Federation's military command is desperate, and with their fleet still in tatters, they make a last-ditch effort to free the planet: They pull Captain Jackson Wolfe out of retirement and put him in command of a ship they hope can get past the defending armada and provide support to the beleaguered Marines and civilians fighting on the surface of the contested world. There is no reasoning with this enemy. If the Terran Federation wants their planet back, they will have to pay the price.

I'll have to make this the only review I do for the entire trilogy black fleet included.

one thing that sets this author's works apart from the rest is how he accurately describes the vastness of space. engagements take days if not weeks to play out. with that being said however nothing is taken away from the excitement this series provides to a listener. one of the absolute must read series for all space opera/action enthusiasts. The adventures of Captain Jackson Wolfe and Celeste Wright is a tale to be told of The exhilarating,frightening, and strange mysteries hidden within the black void of space.

there are soo many complex facets and personalities the many characters display within that simply have to be experienced first hand.

Last but not least the narrator is quite simply one of the best I've ever heard in the business of audiobook wonders. The many voices and personas he portrays for the many complex characters makes me believe that if Mr. Dalzelle had voices in mind for each of them they would be spot on!!

Do yourself a favor and buy every single one of these books! You will not be disappointed!

what In the world did you guys do with Stephen hoye?? that man was your ace in the hole for the dragon age series and you bring in a droll nasally sounding Gildart??

Mr. Hoye captured my heart and left me hanging on to every word in the stolen throne and the calling.

I don't know what's going on audible with your performers in these books but the quality of readers is severely lacking. luckily for you guys this is a book I've been wanting to listen to for ages so I'm going to fight through the hell that Mr. Jackson puts everyone through in his books during his destruction of exciting literature.

now that I've listened to it I'll say that the story was great. still narration left much to be desired.
